From May 24 to June 1, many noteworthy independent games will go on sale "to celebrate online stores that give us control over pricing." This initiative, dubbed Because We May, will include titles sold on PC, Mac, Linux, Steam, iOS, Android, and other platforms.

We believe that developers should have the freedom to price their games how they like, without interference from the online stores that sell the games. Why? Because it allows us to promote our games more freely, as we are doing here! We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.

While prices aren't being disclosed yet, the selection is, again, excellent. Follow the links at the top of the site to see for yourself. It should also be noted that the list is still growing; if you happen to be a developer who wants to promote the project's message, you have until May 22 to sign up.
