Heavengames Server Transition
Posted @ 5:12 AM || Angel ET

The following Announcement has information of importance to those who use the HG Downloads sections frequently. Also note that this Server move may have impact on other aspects of the Heavengames site(s).

Heavengames is busy moving servers, and have encountered some problems of varying severity. The Downloads Sections may be working intermittently. Uploading files is almost certain to fail, so it's best to wait with uploading until we successfully have everything working perfectly once more.

To make matters worse, even the sites themselves may be down intermittently. We are aware of these possibilities and doing our utmost in getting everything in working order as soon and as smoothly as possible.

We apologize to everyone for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

HG Product Recommendation System
Posted @ 1:04 PM || TNK

HeavenGames has put up its product recommendation system! From Angel Spineman:

Welcome to the HeavenGames product recommendation system! This is where you, the HeavenGames visitor, can recommend your favorite products to other members of the HeavenGames community. We thought that since many Heaven visitors share common interests, it would be a great idea to provide a place where each of you can recommend products that you've enjoyed so other Heaven visitors can discover items they may not have known about otherwise. Our hope is that this recommendation system will enhance our community by creating a library of products that are of interest to people who visit HeavenGames.

To provide this service, HeavenGames has partnered with, and All the products displayed will contain links to one or more of these online merchants where you can purchase the products. If you purchase a product after clicking on one of the links in the HG recommendation system, HeavenGames will receive a commission of five to fifteen percent of your purchase. So by using this system to find new products to purchase, you will also be helping HeavenGames stay online and stay free for everyone.
