Indie developers now have another outlet to distribute their games thanks to Amazon.com. An entire new “Indie Games” section has been added to Amazon’s video game offerings, with top billing in their “Digital Games” store. Not only are indie developers receiving prominent placement on the site, but Amazon is also holding a sale to celebrate the new section. Among the discounts on offer:
- Papa & Yo for $7.49.
- Trine for $1.25.
- FTL: Faster Than Light for $4.99.
- Hotline Miami for $5.00.
- Strike Suit Zero, The Cave, Galaxy on Fire 2, Sol Survivor, and Little Inferno for $9.99.
- Costume Quest, Stacking, The Cave, Psychonauts, Iron Brigade, and Brutal Legend for $9.99.
- Foreign Legion, Air Buccaneers, SpaceChem, Mutant Mudds and more for $9.99.
If that wasn’t enough, Amazon is giving away free copies of Huntsman: The Orphanage, Dynasty of Dusk, and The Curse of Nordic Cove with the purchase of any of these and other already discounted indie games. Free games on top of discounted games? The chance to support indie developers? This is a pretty sweet deal, and just in time to stock up before the upcoming summer new release drought. Enjoy your new gaming backlog!
