Contrary to popular belief, making an amazing game is not a guaranteed way to success as an indie developer. At least equally important are PR and marketing savvy and for every Super Meat Boy success story, there are hundreds of well crafted gems flying under the radar. The Free Bundle is aiming to solve that visibility problem for underexposed games, granted in the most direct way imaginable – by giving them away.
Bundles have been blamed for devaluing the indie game as a form of expression by training players to equate them with low cost package deals. And while the Free Bundle seems to run opposite to that criticism, there is at least the net positive of Nitronic Rush, Celestial Mechanica, ImScared, Abobo’s Big Adventure, Ascension and Treasure Adventure Game getting those extra eyeballs that might help their creator’s next game break out in a big way.
