It doesn’t take a genius to point out that the world of video games is changing rapidly. While many geeks bemoan that games have gone mainstream, many fail to realize that the future is on our hands, literally. We are the demographic—the first demographic. And the indie games that we support today will be the blockbusters of tomorrow—the game designers we give our dollars to now will be making new, innovative games in the future. The future!
That said, a great place to start supporting indie game developers is at The Humble Indie Bundle. You can pay what you want for the five games they offer: Crayon Physics Deluxe, Hammerfight, VVVVVV, And Yet It Moves, and Cogs (awesome names, if I may say so myself). As the site points out, that’s a $50 retail value for, well, whatever the heck you want to pay for it. They are multi-platform—yes Macs and even Linux-based systems can play these games.
And… just to sweeten the deal, we’re offering free bundles to two commenters who retweet (via the “Tweet” button below) this great approach to gaming and charity! To participate, just post the link to your RT in the comments section, that’s it!
