Pax South 2015: Introducing the IndieBox

Pax South 2015: IndieBox

In a world where it seems like there is a subscription box for everything, during Pax South we were introduced to the IndieBox.

IndieBox is a subscription service that delivers collector’s edition versions of indie games to your door every month. Each IndieBox contains a high-quality indie game, retro-style box art, USB game cartridge, color manual, original soundtrack, and much much more…†

Unlike the highly popular Loot Crate which delivers geeky toys and discount codes for popular AAA titles, IndieBox is a subscription service that delivers limited editions of indie games directly to your door on a USB game cartridge with a DRM-free copy of the game for Windows, Mac, and Linux. During Pax South, at the IndieBox booth we saw that along with the game you would also get collectibles bundled with the indie game of the month. Additionally, once a particular month’s IndieBox is sold out, they are gone forever! No resales. No reprints.

Similar to most subscription services, IndieBox is available in 1-Month, 3-Month, and 6-Month pricing tiers. IndieBox also handcrafts all boxes and some times hold live streams on Twitch with the indie developers who created a particular month’s game while crafting the indie boxes to ship. We love anything that allows fans to interact directly with indie developers. Hence, why we cover and love Pax so much.

What caught our attention was the overall quality of the boxes. At first we thought we were looking at just another Pax South booth selling video game themed merchandise but when we learned was that the merch was correlated to an indie game and that said game was delivered in a special cartridge art box and included a soundtrack, manual and more. Once we learned that, we wanted to learn more about IndieBox in order to share with all of you.

If you’re looking for unique collectibles that allow you the ability to not only interact with indie developers but help support the indie community, then might we suggest IndieBox?
