Steam Summer Sale 2013: Price Matches That Give More To Creators

The Steam sale gets lots of sales for indie games, and is awesome for indie developers in general. But there’s a way to make it more awesome for indie developers: a number of games currently discounted on Steam or set to go on sale are being price-matched by their creators via the Humble Store. The Humble Store gives devs 95% of the purchase price, vs. the 70% they get from Steam. And you still get a Steam key, so you get to have the game on Steam either way. Also, if games on this list are further discounted, as Flash or Daily deals, they’ll most likely get matched to the lower price.

Steam does great things for indie devs and PC gaming, but if you want creators to get a bigger cut of what you pay, have a look at this list, and consider buying from the creator via the Humble Store.
