Improving How Gamers Find New Indie Games

shinyloot shinyloot writes  |  about a year and a half ago

shinyloot writes "Shiny Loot, a soon-to-launch Austin based digital distribution site offers a new alternative to finding, researching, and purchasing games. With a focus on working with independent developers, games at Shiny Loot list up to four unique traits which can be cross referenced with genres and setting, providing over a hundred individual options for the user.

To complement a customer centric approach built around filters and traits, Shiny Loot provides a marketplace with minimal DRM. Outside of simple key validation, no other DRM is set to accompany titles found on Shiny Loot. Publishers with a strong commitment to that mentality, many of which are independent developers, are the core of Shiny Loot's launch base.

The company will undergo a closed registration beta test on January 29, 2013. The site will be fully functional, including purchase, but limited by access codes distributed through specific partners."
