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.
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.
