This is turning out to be a positively great week for Indie game fans. Just a few days ago, the cross-platform “Because we May” promo went live. Now, we have another stunning indie-games deal in the form of “The Indie Gala V”.
Indie Gala follows the pay-what-you-want model that has been popularized by the massively successful Humble Indie Bundle. The fifth edition of Indie Gala V contains as many as twelve new indie-games. However, how many you actually end up getting will depend upon your tip. Minimum payment of $1 grants you access to four games, but you will need to pay $5.99 or more to get access to all the twelve games in the bundle. Not only that, folks who beat the average will get access to indie music (presumably game soundtracks) and additional goodies that will be revealed in the second week. If you stick with the default split, a part of your tip will also go to charity. This edition of Indie Gala is supporting AbleGamers (charity for children and adults with disabilities) and the Italian Red Cross. It’s worth noting that the retail price of the games on offer adds up to $150, while the current average tip amount in Indie Gala is only $5.27.
