Archive Games Focuses Digital Distribution on Indie Games

Archive Entertainment's digital distribution tool, Archive Games, aims to promote independently made games. The service works with smaller developers who aren't well known but are still offering great games. All of the games available on the service are currently free, though with its latest release the system now allows developers to sell their games.

The developers of the following games have agreed to distribute on Archive Games; their games can now be freely downloaded:
Nethack - Explore a procedurally generated dungeon with a unique gameplay experience each time you play.
OpenLieroX - An extremely addictive realtime 2D shoot-em-up.
Glest - A 3D real-time strategy game, where you control the armies of two different factions: Tech and Magic.
SimWorld - A first person shooter where players can build their own fortresses.
Backyard Bones - A 2D puzzle game where you guide Ruby in underground explorations.

More developers are actively working with Archive Entertainment to distribute their games. Archive Games is currently available for both Windows and Linux.
