Indie Gala

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Indie Gala or IndieGala is a series of video game bundles similar to the Humble Bundle, but with games offered generally only for Microsoft Windows, and usually with digital rights management (DRM). The first IndieGala was released on December 5, 2011.

Most games, so far, have been Steam keys and not direct downloads. Exceptions include, but are not limited to, Vizati in the first Gala, Fruit Blitz for Android in the second Gala, as well as the original Postal game for Mac, Linux and Windows, also in the second Gala.

Just like in Humble Bundle, buyers can set the revenue split between the developers, charities and organizers.

A peculiarity of the IndieGala bundles, which distinguishes it from other similar sites, is to give to music albums almost the same prominence as that given to the games.

IndieGala also launched an initiative called Galafund that aims to support independent game development'[1]
