IndieGameStand was an online retailer that sells indie games. The site is well known for its optional pay what you want model, where if the developer choses to, a portion of the proceeds from the game's sales go to charity. Unlike similar models, such as Humble Bundle, the games are not offered in a bundle. Instead, IndieGameStand features a new independent game that customers can pay what they want for every 96 hours. The game developers choose which charity they wish to donate the proceeds to.
In December 2017 IGS support staff announced via the main URL that the company was officially defunct, citing more than 1.5 years of negative income and the change of ownership of their server provider causing errors beyond their capacity to repair. When the site closed, the highest rated game on the platform was Redactem.
