Pay-what-you-want indie games site launches, spotlights SpaceChem

IndieGameStand to sell a different DRM-free title every four days.

There's lots to love about newly-launched site IndieGameStand. Every four days it will highlight a new indie title and make it available to buy at a price of your choosing.

Games are available DRM-free, and a portion of the money you spend will go to charity.

The current spotlighted title is Eurogamer 9/10-scoring SpaceChem, on sale for just 96 hours. After that, another game will replace it.

The suggested price is $10, although site stats suggest most people are paying less. The average price is just $1.86, although the total spend has been $2186.

Pay at least $1 and you'll get keys to unlock the game on Steam, Desura, and GOG.com. Pay the full $10 (or more) and you'll unlock a three-game bundle containing the previous game, Escape Goat, and whatever the next title on the service is too.

10 per cent of what you pay will be given to each developer's chosen charity. In SpaceChem developer Zachtronics Industries' case, it's the Against Malaria Foundation.

Atomic puzzler SpaceChem has just 17 hours left on IndieGameStand. Surely a purchase is elementary?
