Going on from today till the September 26, if you join the new site IndieGameStand, you will be given a free indie game Chester here is some game play:
Now on to the important thing which is why are they giving out a free indie game to a site a never heard of? It is really simple, they want you to join and you should for a good cause not just a free full game. Have you heard of the Humble Indie Bundle?
Well if not the humble bundle is a event every few times a year where they collect money by going to indie game developers and have a bundle of games for sale for two charities: The EFF and Child’s Play. Now the games you got were D.R.M. free and unlocked. You could download them as many times as you want to as many different computers as you wanted, if the game had it, you could pick which O.S.(Operating system) you had or wanted them to be on, most came with soundtracks of the games(in not only MP3 but also F.L.A.C.) and if you paid over a dollar you were given Steam keys for the games on top of your special download links that would last forever(“forever” is subjective but you would get a email with download links just for you.)
What made this bundle so special is that you the users paid what you wanted to pay. It could be as low as a buck to as high as one thousand dollars and you get to pick where the money went too. It is also not no name games, they had award winning games like Braid, Psychonauts, Super Meat Boy, Trine, The Bastion, Limbo. World Of Goo, Aquaria, Cave Story+, Shank, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, and many other big names of games that had a sudden and amazing impact on gaming.
IndieGameStand want to be this but everyday, and all year round. See the Humble Indie Bundle only runs for around 14 days about once or twice a year, if you miss the bundle you might not see that bundle again. There are times when your lucky and they will include the last bundle into the new bundle but that is if your lucky. What IndieGameStand want to do is do the same thing that Humble Indie Bundle is doing BUT every 4 days there will be a new game in their spot light that you can pay what ever you want for. It looks like it wont be a bundle how ever if its a game you want but never had enough for full price you can get it at a cheaper price and supporting charities too.
