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."
