Well this is tremendous. Former rainforest turned online retail behemoth Amazon has launched a dedicated Indie Games 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 on sale to celebrate.

What's really cool is that their bundles have all cash from the sales go to the devs smile.gif

Also, there are a ton of sales going on along with it including this

I love the way publishers/labels are at least starting to get shafted instead of them shafting the artists
Things like itunes and steam publishing really help get most of the cash in the hands of the devs

People might hate on me for this....but.....

Thank you Valve-Steam.

It was shown, via Steam, that developer (semi)direct to customer works! Steam allowed Indie to work in a way it wasn't before. Because of this we now have awesome companies like Amazon following suit, once one does it successfully others are sure to follow.

I really hope that the insane level of power big Publishers like EA has dwindles, and the developers see more of the revenue and have more control on their creations. Allowing them to more directly communicate and interact with the players.

When I first looked at that I was like ... WTH? They are making a Duck Dynasty game?

I cant wait to pick up the oh so fine and dandy bundle. I love some tim shafer. I really hope ideas like this begin to gain more traction. The era of the blockbuster game has stagnated and actually done more harm than good. Don't get me wrong I love a good blockbuster, but things have become stale.
