Yes They Can: Because We May Indie Sale

In one of the most extensive discounting operations I’ve ever come across, a [insert appropriate collective noun, ‘liberation’ perhaps] of indie developers have decided to offer their games at prices so low that Crazy Al Trumpet, car and sofa salesman extraordinaire, would condemn them to Bedlam rather than follow their lead. The sale, Because We May, is also a statement of sorts.

We believe that developers should have the freedom to price their games how they like, without interference from the online stores that sell the games. Why? Because it allows us to promote our games more freely, as we are doing here! We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.

Click through for the list, with titles available direct and through various stores, including Steam, or check below for my recommendations.

I’m assuming everybody has sixteen copies of World of Goo by now, as well as their personal selection of Introversion’s fine work. Those are there if you’re missing them in your collection though.

Avadon: The Black Fortress is hard to ignore at $4.99 unless you’re very adept at remaining aloof in the presence of old-fashioned RPG goodness at a low low price. Vessel’s there too and I’ve written before about why that’s a good bit of game.

It’d be ludicrous of anyone to ignore Frozen Synapse if they didn’t own it already, Cardinal Quest is a simple but enjoyable roguelike thing and Defender’s Quest is my favourite tower defense game ever.

There’s loads more stuff. The Steam portion doesn’t seem to be active yet, with games appearing at their non-discounted price as I write this, but as the promotion runs from May 24th to June 1st, hopefully it will be ready later today.
