Description

IndieGameStand is a different kind of indie gaming bundle and promotional website. Our site is about featuring and promoting a new independent game every 96 hours (4 days) for gamers to purchase at a discounted price. That's a new Pay-What-You-Want game sale every few days. The best part is that any game you purchase will be yours to keep forever and stored in your game wallet on our site.

History

Mission

The point of the IndieGameStand is to put a spotlight on those indie titles which provide fantastic experiences, but may have been passed over by the mainstream gaming public, portals, websites, or whatever. This site is about supporting all of the fantastic and worthwhile indie developers out there. Every developer out there deserves a moment to shine.

Origins

Mike Gnade came up with the concept for IndieGameStand after getting frustrating by all the indie game bundle sites. Feeling like these sites were forcing him to rebuy games over and over, he conceived a site that would give players choices while combining the popular Pay-What-Want Pricing model with a Daily Deal presentation. After meeting through a mutual friend, Mike teamed with Dan Liebner, founder of SmackJeeves Web Comic Hosting, to collaborate on IndieGameStand. After 9 months of development, the site officially launched on September 26th, 2012 with Escape Goat as the first deal.

2013

IndieGameStand went through a significant site redesign early in the year based on community feedback. The checkout page and deal page were completely redone to better showcase bonus content and top contributor prizes. IndieGameStand also attended PAX East for the first time and showcased 12 indie games in their booth. Following PAX/GDC, IndieGameStand had 2 of its best sales ever - both surpassing $10k in only 96 hours.
