I just use the "Add a non steam game" option, and put them in categories to know where they are from. Works good for me;)


Until your Steam library loses all of your non-Steam games and categories and you need to redo all of that work.

Even if that doesn't happen, that doesn't help keep track of games that you don't have downloaded and installed.

Some games on Shiny Loot are DRM-free, some require one time key validations. In both cases you shouldn't have to worry about not being able to play the game down the road because we absolutely don't sell games that add SecuROM, Tages, etc. nor do we sell any games that require Steam.

Shiny Loot does not have a client. Basically when you buy a game (or bundle in this case) you will get access to download links on your 'my games' section. Click to download the installer or zip and you'll be good to go. I think it's a very easy, painless process. I encourage you to come back here and post your feedback if you do decide to make a purchase. All the games in this bundle are DRM free.

As for us potentially not being around in a few years because we're new (as mentioned before you)...I know this is easy to say but I feel you can be less concerned with us in that regard vs. other start-ups. I've taken steps to ensure the fixed cost of running Shiny Loot is rather minimal. That means we won't be throwing multi-thousand dollar parties at PAX, but that's what you get for security! Obviously the better we do the more games and deals you will see in addition to other enhancements, like improving our trait-based filtering.

Remember, we're in beta...in fact roughly just a month into our open beta. We will consider anything that makes us a superior choice. The only things we won't stray from is focusing on indie games and offering only games that at least offer a minimal to no DRM download. So every bit of feedback here, even if not specifically for us, is really being considered.


So If i pick up that bundle i wont have to worry about not being able to install them on the new computer i'll be getting in a month or two right? I glanced at the individual items and it says 'protection type: none' Im assuming that means theres no DRM junk or anything right? Just wanted to make sure before i pick it up. I didn't want to get an install limit or something when i try to set it up on the new system later. If so i guess this would be a good opurtunity to try out this company

Also was wondering if these support controllers or anything. Playing 16 bit style classics like this with a keyboards kinda meh. I dont see any info on that on the game pages themselves.

I don't know about all of them, but the one I'm playing is supposed to support a game pad. And there's no DRM as far as I can tell on any of them.

The games in this particular bundle are all DRM free so you will always be able to install without problem. Games at Shiny Loot will either say None or One Time Key Validation next to DRM.

I'm not sure which of the games offer native gamepad support. However, I've used http://electracode.c...ish Version.htm before on a variety on games and it's worked well (plus it's free).

When you login with your account click on 'my games'. That will show you a list of all of our games, when you select one you'll have some options of files to download. Select the appropriate operating system installer and that should be it.

Thought it'd been a while. I was about to buy that police game on Amazon last time they had it on sale. For $3 this bundle is a much better deal.

The PlayWay bundle has a lot of casual, action fun for $3.

And it really has been too long. We've been working on a few things and focusing efforts there, but this bundle is just the start of getting on track. We'll make up for it in a big way tomorrow and Friday.

Final day of our indie game sale with Steam/Desura keys included in addition to DRM-free and minimal-DRM downloads. We've added 12 games since the original posting. I've also updated the format so everyone could see the genres and key traits for each of these games (instead of randomly clicking based on name). Let me know how you all like the format and if you would like to see any changes made.

Hope you can all find something great in the last 12 hours!

Hey OP, I wanted to say something odd.

Thanks for putting the genres/traits with the games. If it had just been 60 game names with links, I would have said, "Screw this, I don't have time to look through all of these things."

But because you put additional info, I was able to scan quicky for things I like, and ended up buying Battlepaths, Deadly 30, & Rogue's Tale. Thanks a lot!l

You're welcome! I'm not sure why it took so long for me to start posting this kind of information. We have a lot more easy to digest details at ShinyLoot than other distributors so it makes it very easy to pass on that information in a public setting.

Glad to hear it was useful! I'll definitely do this for future sales.

It was actually pretty good beforehand. The voiceovers were added later and I haven't played it with voiceovers yet, but I assume it only got better.
