For the past few years, the subscription service IndieBox has provided game collector’s with the rare opportunity to grab monthly installments of hit indie games in special, physical collector’s editions, while the retailer has announced a change of course for its business moving forward by ending its subscription plan.
In an update on the company’s website, IndieBox has announced that the company will be ending its subscription-based services this month with the release of Torchlight II: Collector’s Edition. IndieBox explained that while the company won’t be shutting down entirely, the company clarified that it will be “changing direction from what you primarily known as IndieBox.”
In part, the company explained that moving forward it will be “pivoting to work more directly with indie devs,” and that they have “already been powering some of your favorite online stores for game developers,” adding that there is “a lot more coming,” which (presumably) means the company might shift to either more of a focus on digital services or more limited capacities of products, like that of Limited Run Games and other retailers.
IndieBox concluded its post by thanking its subscribers (both long running and “one-month’ers”), and explained that active subscribers will have their subscriptions automatically canceled after the release of Torchlight II, while those on a plan model with remaining subscription boxes will be contacted by the company to close out their accounts.
