Founded by Dan Liebner and Mike Gnade in 2012, Indie Game Stand offers a familiar “pay what you want” buying experience with a few unique hooks, and tends to focus on games that may be overlooked by larger programs. Each game is on sale for four days, with buyers able to pay the listed market price or whatever they want. Think Humble Bundle meets Groupon.
A portion of the proceeds from each sale go to the charity of the game developers’ choice, and every game is offered DRM free. When they’re available, purchasers who spend over $1 on a game also receive Steam and/or Desura keys. Indie developers who want to get their game on Indie Game Stand can do so all on their own through a slick system the guys have set up, and you can read more about each featured game over on the blog.
Dan, Mike, and Matt have been kind enough to offer us a handful of download codes for free games from the service, and we’re gonna pass them along to you! Just leave us a comment below with your favorite indie game of 2012 OR the indie game you’re most looking forward to in 2013. We’ll pick a few of you at random to receive a free download! Good luck, geeks.
