Game du Jour

Following in the footsteps of Bits du Jour is Game du Jour

What is Game du Jour?

Game du Jour is the first “One Deal a Day” website for casual PC games. Every day of the week, GameDuJour.com sells one popular downloadable game at a steep discount. But the clock is ticking and each deal expires at the end of the day.

Visitors to GameDuJour.com can download today’s game, try it and buy it at a big discount until midnight Central Time. Then it’s a whole new game — the clock is reset and another game is available at a bargain price.

To foster relationships between gamers and spur communication, Game du Jour offers a community area in which anyone can join in the fun of discussing the current game and sharing tips and tricks.

Game du Jour, a Silicon Valley start-up founded by Dr. Philippe Piernot, is a marketing and distribution partner to game developers, giving those companies the opportunity for a rush of sales and heightened brand exposure during their products’ 24-hour lifecycle at GameDuJour.com.
What kind of games do you sell?

We sell casual games for Windows such as solitaire games (e.g. Freecell, Mahjong etc.), puzzle games (e.g. Sudoku, jigsaws etc.), card games (e.g. Poker, Hearts etc.), classic games (e.g. Chess, Checkers etc.) and arcade games (e.g. PacMan, Arkanoid etc.)

Neither could I. Have you looked into installing a better search engine for the forums?

Didn't App make a Firefox plugin that searched this site using Google? (Where'd that thread go? I can't find it.) Why not just replace the SMF search to use the Google search code?

on the search page you can choose to use google; but google does not index instantly and there can be a real delay between a post on the forum and the time google indexes it.

I couldn't find it either, which means it doesn't exist :P
Notice that the post might have been misinterpreted and deleted since it would look like a dupe on bitsdujour (yep, a little too far-feched, but at least gives some comfort to mouser for the search not finding it ;) )
