If you are a gamer, last week was probably pretty torturous for you. The eagerly anticipated Diablo III hit the shelves about a decade after its predecessor, but most gamers couldn’t play the game due to crappy DRM and sloppy Blizzard infrastructure. While Blizzard continues to firefight with infrastructure upgrades and hotfixes, Ron Carmel of World of Goo fame has strewn together a neat little package that should cheer you up.
In an initiative called “Because We May”, several indie game developers have come together to offer their games at deep discounts (typically 50% or more). Unlike most other similar promotions, “Because We May” is as platform agnostic as you can get. It features games for Windows, Windows Phone, Mac, iOS, and Android. The promotion will last til June 1, and is meant to celebrate online stores that gives developers the freedom to determine pricing.
Games on offer include World of Goo, Osmos, Super Meat Boy, Beat Trip Runner, Penny Arcade, Dungeon Defenders, Zen Bound 2, Fieldrunners, Riptide, and dozens of other stellar indie titles. Head over to becausewemay.com to check out all the games on offer.
