Ever wonder how you could support both indie developers and charities at the same time? If so, then IndieGameStand is for you. IndieGameStand is a site that features and promotes indie games that otherwise would never see the light of day. To do this, the site chooses one game that it showcases for four days.
All of the games showcased have a suggested retail price, but the site gives the buyer the power to pay whatever they want for the game. No, your eyes aren’t failing you; you can literally pay a dollar for a game. Even so, you may not want to when you know the money is going to charity. Ten percent of every sale will go towards the charity of that developer’s choice.
Another cool feature about the site is that all of the games are DRM free. You can download and install the games as many times as you like. The games are yours forever or until the Internet crashes—whichever comes first. In addition, may of the games come with Steam and Desura codes. However, according to the site’s FAQ, if you pay less than a dollar those codes won’t be made available to you.
If you’re interested, head over to IndieGameStand and check out today’s featured game, Gnomoria. It’s a sandbox game where you help a group of gnomes survive and build a thriving kingdom. The developer, Robotronic Games, has chosen the Red Cross as its charity of choice. This particular game is only available for Windows, but the site also features games available for Mac and Linux as well.
