2dboy, the developers of the famous indie game World of Goo wants to bring the power to the indie game developers by letting them decide of the prices of their own games (sadly very often it’s not so).
Most games on “Because We May” cost much less than their regular price, you can even get Cortex Command Alpha for $0.09 ! you cannot afford not to get it !
But on the other hand there is a brave little game named “Super Office Stress” which you can get on sale for only $99 ! (regular price is $3)
So thats all about giving the developers their rightful choice to name the price of their games.

There are many games on the list, many of which have a native GNU/Linux and Android clients, and you can buy them on Desura, directly from the developers or via Google Play (depends on the platform).

Remember, this sale only lasts from May 24th to June 1st, so now is a great time to buy those games and show the developers how you love them !

We believe that developers should have the freedom to price their games how they like, without interference from the online stores that sell the games. Why? Because it allows us to promote our games more freely, as we are doing here! We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.

For the last week of May (May 24 through June 1) our games will be deeply discounted to celebrate online stores that give us control over pricing: The App Store, Google Play, Steam, and a few others.

If you are a developer and would like to endorse this message by discounting your game between May 24 and June 1, click here to add your game to this promotion (it will appear in the lists linked to above):
