Because We May Indie Sale Kicks Off Next Week Across Steam, iOS & More

Indie fans rejoice! To celebrate certain retail platforms - such as Steam, Apple's App Stores, and Google Play - offering developers the chance to enjoy freedom and flexibility when it comes to pricing their own games, a massive indie sale across those platforms will be conducted from May 24th through to June 1st.

Check out the blurb from the official site for Because We May below:

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.

For the last week of May (May 24 through June 1) our games will be deeply discounted to celebrate online stores that give us control over pricing: The App Store, Google Play, Steam, and a few others.

Here's a list of the titles that have signed up so far for the Steam initiative. Be sure to visit the official page for Because We May to check out other deals going down. The cut off point for participation submissions is May 22nd, so if you're an indie dev and you want to get involved join here.

Thats some good games! Unfortunately I own 90% of them already thanks to steam sales and humble bundles but might fill in some gaps.

I own most of these games from the Humble Bundles but I'll check out the other ones. I wish they had "Dear Esther" and "Swords & Sorcery"!

Annoyingly (for Android at least) there's quite a few developers listing games reduced from "Free" to "Free" which somewhat seems to defeat the purpose of the event.

I have bought a silly amount of new games though.
