Indie developers are once again banding together in an effort to not only bring consumers deals for solid games, but also to fund future projects. They are teaming up to form the Indie Underdog Pack which will be available on Wednesday, March 14th.
As part of the Indie Underdog Pack, six teams will be supplying one of their previous games and the whole bundle will cost $5. The promotion is running through 8-Bit Funding, a popular website for crowdfunding indie games. All six titles will come to you DRM-free with the idea being you’ll do the right thing and not illegally distribute them.
Interested in which games your $5 will get you? Check out trailers for most of them below.
As with other 8-Bit Funding campaigns, you have the option to donate more than the minimum. While $5 will get you the games listed above, there are loads of other rewards being promised for higher tiers of donations.
