Game industry vets Anthony Palma and Cade Peterson chat with Gamasutra about Jump, their new indie game subscription service that aims to give passed-over games their time in the sun.
Ambitious but I don't see it working. $10 a month to play indie games is not going to fly with most people. People already complain about their backlogs of games they haven't gotten around to. I just feel like this needs to offer something else besides ~100+ indy games of decent to high quality, it needs a little more value for me.
I don't see this service as a viable solution for different reasons. 1) similar solution exists like Ea access, PS+, Xbox live, Humble Bundle Monthly. 2) 10$ is really expensive when you consider Indy gala, Humble Bundle, Bundlestar, etc... 2$ bundles
