Disabled Gamers Supported by Indie Game Bundle

               

Harpers Ferry, WV –May 26, 2012– The Ablegamers Foundation will be featured alongside the Red Cross as one of the two charities supported by the IndieGala bundle where the industry’s hottest indie games and music are put up in a pay-what-you-want style sale.

“We are absolutely honored by IndieGala’s founders,” says AbleGamers Editor-In-Chief Steve Spohn. “They have taken a real shine to supporting the disabled community. They believe in the idea that every gamer should have a right to play spectacular game regardless of disability or financial situation.”

“Indie bundles are important to the gaming industry,” says Craig Kaufman AbleGamers’ Indie Game Specialist. “They help spread the word of awesome lesser-known indie games while raising money for under-funded charities like The AbleGamers Foundation.”

“AbleGamers has always supported the indie development community,” said Mark Barlet, President and Co-Founder of the Ablegamers Foundation. “They are always more receptive to adding accessibility in a timely manner than big studios can manage in order to include as many gamers as possible. The passion that they have for games and sales like this is inspiring.”

The Indie Gala V Bundle Sale is going on now, but will only be available for two weeks before it’s gone forever. Please take advantage of and share this opportunity to own some wonderful games and help support a couple of great charities in the process.
