Indievania is an open platform for independent developers to sell their games directly to players and keep the most profits possible. Our focus is on DRM free games directly from developers with no middle men and no extra software for players to install.
Players can redownload games at any time after purchase, and developers can continually update their game and release new versions. All games are accepted at any stage in development, with the most popular projects being showcased on the front page, so developers are able to sell beta/alpha versions of their game to fund development.
Indievania was developed by indie developers Alientrap as an alternative to the many online based game retailers. The site was developed with open source technology and cloud based hosting to keep the costs low and allow for game developers retain all their profits directly - no funding for the site has been provided by any game studios or other companies.
When a developer registers on Indievania they use their PayPal account email (no need to provide passwords or any other information), so that when a player buys a game the money goes directly into the developers account and the transaction is entirely handled by PayPal. This allows Indievania to take a very low fee, and not have to handle the security of the payment or the infrastructure costs.
