Places to find Indie Games

Here I’ve listed some of the best resources and digital vendors for indie games. This list will probably expand in time.

Steam

Steam

Steam is one of the biggest game distributors in the world and provides access to one of the largest and cheapest selections of games on the market, indie or otherwise. Most indie bundle sites will provide keys for Steam.

Provides: Steam keys and the means to access Steam Keys

Desura

 desura Desura is a game distribution platform similar to Steam as it provides its own software and allows cheap and easy purchases through the software. While I don’t use this platform often, it holds a lot of interest for me as Desura has more of a focus on small or independent publishers (and their games). In terms of indie games, Desura is the biggest competitor for Steam.

Indie Royale

 Splash Indie Royale is a bundling website where your purchase several indie games for a low price. If you pay the minimum, the price of the bundle keeps increasing, You pay more the minimum, you can get bonus games and soundtracks or drop the price for others.

Provides: Steam Keys, Desura Keys and direct downloads.

Bundle in a Box

 bundlelogo Bundle in a Box is, if you haven’t guessed it, another bundle site where you get to choose the amount you pay for the bundle of games. Unlike Indie Royale, you can choose how much of you money goes to charity, the game developers and the site.

Provides: Steam Keys, Desura Keys and direct downloads.

Humble Bundle

 2459117-humble+bundle+-+logo+vertical The Humble Bundle is yet another bundle site for games. Like Bundle in a Box, you can choose how much of you money goes to charity, the game developers and the site. One of the main differences I’ve noticed about the Humble Bundle is that they seem to delve into more than the PC or Mac game and often have bundles for mobile devices and sometimes even eBooks.

Provides: Steam Keys, Desura Keys and direct downloads.
