IndieBox shutting down subscription services this month

Springs Hosting

In a rather heartfelt message posted to its main page, the minds behind the IndieBox announced that they would be shutting down its subscription service effective today. 

IndieBox began in 2013 as a subscription service that created and shipped collector’s editions of PC games. This was done in an effort to spotlight independent developers that were otherwise lost in a sea of digitally distributed games, according to the release.

Over the years the company created special collector’s editions of games such as The Stanley ParableAxiom Verge, and Hollow Knight; as well as various indie game memorabilia. According to estimates in the release, IndieBox was shipping out approximately 3,000 orders per month.

The IndieBox team further explained in the letter that the services would be concluding with the shipping of the collector’s edition of Torchlight II around the end of October. Orders can still apparently be placed in their store for editions featured in previous months and more are reportedly planned for future release, but no new subscription orders can be placed.

The group stressed that even though the subscription service would be concluded, the company is not shutting down. IndieBox would be investigating other avenues for its business, including powering online stores for independent developers.
