IndieGameStand lets you pay what you want for indie titles, first up is 'Escape Goat'

Indie Game Magazine opened IndieGameStand for business today, a website that hosts a new indie title every four days and allows buyers to pay what they want for them.

Games on the platform are DRM free, which lets players download and install them multiple times, and a portion of all profits are donated to the developer's charity of choice.

"The point of the Indie Game Stand is to put a spotlight on those indie titles which provide fantastic experiences, but may have been passed over by the mainstream gaming public, portals, websites, or whatever," reads an official statement on the site's "About" page. "Every developer out there deserves a moment to shine."

First up for grabs is MagicalTimeBean's Escape Goat, a retro puzzle-platformer with a bonus level editor for players to tinker with. The game was previously released through Xbox Live Indie Games and for PC. MagicalTimeBean is donating 10 percent of sales during its turn on IndieGameStand to the American Red Cross.

The next game hits September 30th at 12:01 a.m. ET. If you're an indie game developer and want to see your game on IndieGameStand, the site is accepting submissions here.
