Well this is tremendous. Former rainforest turned online retail behemoth Amazon has launched a dedicated
department, flogging digital copies of the likes of Mutant Mudds, Hotline Miami and, well, hundreds of other independent games, and putting a ton of them
to celebrate. There are also some rather tasty bundles. Amazon aren't taking a cut from sales of these collections - 100% of the money will go to the developers. The only apparent catch is that, like a lot of the digital content on the website, it's currently only available in the US. Boo!
Highlights from the sale include
Unity of Command
for $4.99, spacey roguelike
for just $2.49, and another spacey roguelike named FTL for $4.99. You'll also get a few free games with each purchase: Dynasty of Dusk, Huntsman: The Orphanage and The Curse of Nordic Cove. Not, admittedly, games I've ever heard of, but still.
Double Fine bundle
is particularly good, consisting of The Cave, Costume Quest, Brutal Legend, Stacking, Psychonauts
Iron Brigade for only $9.99.
