A new web storefront to find indie games hits beta

ShinyLoot Gives Gamers A New Way to Find Indie Co-Op Games

As indie gaming continues to grow, especially in the PC space, it's starting to run into a bit of a problem - namely it's becoming difficult to find the type of indie game you'd enjoy.  Sites like Desura and GoG.com are a good place to find games but sometimes there's just too many to casually browse.  Indie developers have their own problem, while Steam Greenlight gives them a path to the promised land, there's still stiff competition to get on the service.  This means indies are fighting to get noticed by the exact people they want to play their games.  This is where ShinyLoot comes in, a new store front launching in beta today for indie PC games.

Please buy my game. :)

SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance Now Available on Amazon

Today I'm proud to say the Indie game I helped create is now available to purchase via Amazon.  SCHAR Blue Shield Alliance is available in standard and deluxe editions via digital download.  While not a full retail release, to be listed on a major retailer is quite a milestone in my opinion.  We released the game in late August via Desura and had high hopes of getting it on Steam, but even with a Greenlight page I just don't see that happening.

Co-Op Action game needs your vote!

Vote for SCHAR: Blue Shield Alliance on Steam Greenlight

Valve launched their Steam Greenlight service last week to the masses with the goal of getting a spotlight on promising indie titles.  Once it launched though, the unmoderated service quickly filled with spam type postings and the good content started to get lost in the shuffle.  Valve has since implemented a $100 barrier of entry which should help a bit, but indie developers like Brain Shape Games still need your help to get noticed.
