OnLive Community Manager Matt Jensen's Tuesday 2/28/2012 Livecast

This time OnLive MJ had his livecast on Tuesday, so it looks like livecasts will really be on Tuesdays 2pm PT. There will be no livecast next week as OnLive will be on the GDC and is preparing surprises for the GDC. OnLive MJ will be interviewing indie developers, who are bringing their games to OnLive, at GDC next week. He will post these interviews.

OnLive MJ announcements:

- Livecasts will be at 2pm PT from now on.

- IGF - OnLive is showcasing 16 indie games. 30 minute demos for each game. You can play the demos more than once. - Are we going to have them all on the service? These games are in many different stages of development. Some aren't even close to being done. FTL is still in alpha mode. FTL is on Kickstarter with a $10,000 ask. They hit it in a few hours.
- Matt will be bringing us interviews with the indie developers next week. There will be no livecast next week, but there will be interviews with the indie developers (Tues, Wed, and Thurs) from GDC.
- OnLive is working with the indie developers to bring the games to the service. They'd love to have them on the service.
- A lot of the indie showcase games are being played for the first time, so the developers are looking forward to hearing feedback, and first hand interaction for their games. The developers are spectating people play, and talking to players to get feedback. It's a real time interaction with the users.
- OnLive is giving away prizes for those that "Like" the indie showcase games on the OnLive Facebook page. You can like them all if you want.
- This is not taking OnLive's focus away from AAA games and more produced games.

- Dead Island
Coming soon. Pre-order coming soon. No date yet.

- PlayPack games releasing today
Eschalon: Book II
Painkiller: Recurring Evil

- Fun GDC stuff coming next week.

Stay tuned for next week's livecast from OnLive community manager Matt Jensen, scheduled for Tuesday 2pm PT / 5pm ET.
