Fleshing out the concept of the Humble Indie Bundle into a regular service, IndieGameStand is a new “pay what you want” digital download portal launching tomorrow, Wednesday, September 26. Your wallet’s really going to feel the pain…unless you’re a total cheapskate.
Every 96 hours (that’s four days), a new indie game will be featured. For each period of four days, until the next game drops, you’ll be able to buy the current indie spotlight for the price of your choosing. Featured games will only be available for 96 hours, so if you don’t buy within that period you’ll either have to wait for a possible re-release, buy directly from the developer at a set price, or create a bundle consisting of the currently featured game, the previous game, and the next upcoming game.
All games purchased from IndieGameStand will be DRM-free. If you pay more than $1, many supported titles will also come with bonus keys for Steam and Desura. 10% of your payment will be donated to a charity of the developer’s choice, while the remaining proceeds will go directly to the developer.
As part of a pre-launch promotion, you can get a free copy of Brilliant Blue-G’s 2D platformer, Chester, which also just so happens to be awaiting approval on Steam Greenlight. This promotion only lasts until IndieGameStand opens tomorrow, so at the time of this posting there’s only around 10 hours left to register an account early and take advantage of the free game download.
