Some recent indie releases have adopted their own payment plan in order to receive funds. We rounded up 3 newly launched PC games that offer some sort of a pay what you want scheme.
Dungeon crawler Enter Thy Name would be the most interesting for cheap people, since it offers its game for free, if you would so choose. The roguelike scheme gets altered with a few different takes. The most notable change is a separation of 7 different stats that each determine a player’s aptitude and health, instead of the traditional health and magic differentials. If any of the 7 stats go down to 0, then the game is over. It offers a range of random items and 21 procedurally generated levels.
There are 2 additional incentives to give a few bucks to the developers. A Thank You Edition starts at a donation of $1.99 and comes with a custom made font and a soundtrack. Starting at $9.99, the 1985 Collector’s Edition will even include a full-color, 16-page instruction manual. You can get Enter Thy Name here.
Physics puzzles and platformer meet once more in Nikki and the Robots. Here, gamers play with a ninja kitty that can jump against walls and control robots. The core game is available with less awesome pixel graphics as a free download and a level editor. To access the story episodes, a pay what you want model allows you to give anything from 1 cent to thousands of dollars. Al; future updates are included in a purchase. You can get Nikki and the Robots here.
Lastly, Vitrum put up a pay what you want model for its first person physics puzzler. There are around 45 levels where players manipulate gravity and use crystals to create platforms. The minimum payment here is $4.99, but should you be unsure, there is also a demo version available. You can get Vitrum here.
