The folks at Big Fish Games have launched a new subscription gaming service that lets you access over 100 video games for $7.99 per month. It’s called Big Fish Unlimited, and it’s kind of like a Netflix for video games.

If that sounds like the GameTanium service Verizon introduced last month, that’s because it is a lot like GameTanium… but better.

Big Fish Unlimited

While GameTanium is cheaper, running just $6 per month, it’s only available on phones and tablets. Big FishUnlimited runs on a range of devices including smartphones, tablets, computers, and even internet connected TVs. Later this year the service will be available on Roku set-top-boxes.

Instead of downloading games to you device, you actually stream them over the internet, so you don’t necessarily need a bleeding edge, super-fast device to play.

At launch there are more than 100 games available to play, from 42 developers. Big Fish Games has access to a library of more than 2500 games though, so there are plans to add new titles to the subscription service soon.

There’s also a free, ad-supported version of Big Fish Unlimited which offers access to fewer games. The company will make 20 games available at a time, swapping out some titles for new games in a rotating catalog.

To get started with Big Fish Unlimited, you’ll need to request an invite.

  1. How’s the video quality? OnLive’s quality isn’t that great even on connections greater than their 5 Mbps recommended speeds which hasn’t improved much since they first came out.

    1. Big Fish specializes in casual type games like Plants vs Zombies, etc. All should be very easy to stream and require a lot less bandwidth than most of the games OnLive offers.

      1. I guess the “you don’t necessarily need a bleeding edge, super-fast device to play” part of the post isn’t really a benefit of the service if Big Fish intends on only offering casual games.

        This seems okay for people who buy a lot of casual games if Big Fish can continually add good games to their library.
