The official description:

Alientrap wrote:Indievania is an online indie game marketplace for independent developers to sell their games directly to players, where 100% of the cost of the game goes to the developer. This allows developers to give the best promotions and deals possible to gamers. Customers can purchase games directly from the developers own merchant account, supporting the original developers and helping to fund further development.

Our game library include cross platform (Windows/Mac/Linux) DRM-free games. Players can redownload games at any time after purchase, and developers can continually update their game and release new versions.

Indievania was started by indie developers Alientrap, as a solution for other indie developers to sell their games and retain the most profits possible. The site is currently in BETA, please let us know any feedback in our forums.


As said above, creators of Indievania are Alientrap developers, the very makers of Capsized Indievania.com and Nexuiz Classic Sourceforge.net

Yes, the site of Indievania is currently in beta. So. Have you published your game on Indievania? Do you buy games on this site?

i saw that they promote some games as free to play but charge you min 1$. at the developers site they charge you 10$ for the game. I don't get how that works out, well doesn't matter as long as it does.
