ShinyLoot - Black Friday Weekend Sale

by Couchpotato, 04:52

ShinyLoot is having a huge sale with many games for $1 in it's weekend Black Friday sale. You can find many RPGs to suit every taste so check it out.

AUSTIN, TX - November 25, 2013 – Hot on the heels of their recent launch, up-and-coming online store, ShinyLoot has announced that it has banded together with a host of indie game developers to celebrate Black Friday with the hottest sale in the history of the young store. One hundred titles will be discounted down to $1 - many of which are 90% off or more. Some of the largest sales include The Oil Blue , Children of the Nile , Aztaka , The Cat Lady , Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land , Creeper World , Bridge Construction Set and Hinterland . The sale starts Friday, November 29 and runs through ‘Cyber’ Monday, December 2, beginning and ending at midnight CST.

Games in the online store represent indie developers alongside small to medium sized publishers. Robust discovery tools allow users to search using nearly two hundred traits, which are essentially individual game features such as randomized levels, local co-op, deduction, and survival. Additionally, ShinyLoot blends together the best features of competitive game portals GOG, Steam, and Desura. The store offers DRM-free downloads, coupled with additional Steam or Desura keys at no cost on over a hundred titles within a library of almost five hundred games.

ShinyLoot's discovery tools allow users to pinpoint their ideal game desired by combining 170 traits, ten genres, twenty settings, and detail filters such as Steam/Desura key, PC/Mac/Linux, multiplayer size, and/or price in a single search. Traits are presented in an easy-to-read fashion, allowing users to scan for traits most appealing to them. In turn, these traits help indie games get discovered based on their most discerning features, leading to further exposure and sales.

"Most online stores can only promote indie games through featured sales. We do that, too, of course – especially with our Black Friday sale. But our proprietary trait and filter system provides a whole new level of discovering both new and old indie titles," says Chris Palmarozzi, co-founder of ShinyLoot. "It's a crowded marketplace but, through superior service, refined search tools and a diverse selection, we know we can build a strong presence in the gaming community to the benefit of developers and gamers alike."

ShinyLoot - Interview @ TruePCGaming

by Couchpotato, 00:10

TruePCGaming has an interview with ShinyLoot's founder Chris Palmarozzi.  I recommend the site for it sells DRM-free RPGs.

Please speak about where the idea for Shiny Loot came from.

The idea originated from having played and seen a lot of really good indie games that fell under the radar. I wanted to come up with a way to highlight these games and felt that what became our trait and filter system was the best way to showcase these games.

What separates Shiny Loot from other DRM-free distribution outlets?

One thing is that we also offer minimal DRM games which will require no more than a one-time key validation. This opens up several non-obtrusive games that would not normally be sold in a DRM-free outlet. We also offer Steam and Desura keys on about 90 titles for those that prefer to use those tools to manage their game updates. These keys are always in addition to, not in place of, the minimal to no DRM downloads. Finally, we also sell all titles worldwide, offer a DRM-free download manager, and of course our search system powered by over 160 traits now.

Tell us about the core features customers can expect from Shiny Loot.

Search and discovery is our focus so our tagging system for game traits is the most central feature. This is what drives customers to find new games that match their interests and is at the core of discovering new indie games on ShinyLoot. For example, instead of simply browsing action games and RPGs, a user could look for a game tagged with action-rpg, skill based leveling, humor, crafting, branching story, and open world. As a core feature, we already have multiple iterations of improvements planned over the next several months that will further enhance ShinyLoot as a discovery tool.

ShinyLoot is also committed to a fair marketplace, guaranteeing minimal DRM on all titles, selling all games worldwide for one price, and offering developers a direct rate program as an attractive alternative to direct sales.
