I just wanted to make sure that you all heard about the wonderful news.
IndieGala, a game and music bundler similar to humble bundle, has selected
the ablegamers foundation as its charity to support for the two week sale.
This is bringing a ton of awareness to the cause. Thousands of people are
seeing the blurb about ablegamers, talking about it on websites, and
tweeting about it over twitter. Even some minor celebrities such as those
from the WWE have tweeted about ablegamers thanks to this.
I believe this is a wonderful step forward for our shared cause and should
continue over the next two weeks to bring further awareness to disabled
The AbleGamers Foundation has been chosen by IndieGala as IG5's charity.
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
"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. For more information, please visit
