I’ll be the first to admit it. I love Steam. I love everything about it: the sales, the bundles, the immediate access to indie games that I may have missed otherwise.
I especially love that last part.
So when I came across a program named Tiggit I may have become a bit overly excited. Tiggit is a an open source game installer and launcher. Think of it as a minimalist Steam clone for indie games.
Well, there is one big difference. As of now Tiggit only provides freeware games and demos. So there won’t be any amazing sales on some game you’ve been wanting for a while. But, did I mention free?
Right now, Tiggit has over 250 fully playable freeware games.
Just like in Steam you can sort them by genre. It even has a good selection of multi-player games so you can play with your friends without having to worry if everyone bought the game.
I have checked out some of the games, and just like the rest of the indie world, it’s a bit of a mixed bag. But the nice thing about Tiggit is that you don’t have to dig around to find a bunch of games to try out.
They’re all right there for you.
