Desura

This is an awesome place. Basically think of it like steam, online games store with its own steam like program. Except this place focuses on indie games. Its very cool. It also has a section for you to find mods of popular games. Its a bit fiddly still but it'll get better. Been around for a few years now and also setup by Australian company lolololol

I should add, a lot of the games are unfinished. The awesome thing this place also does is let the developers receive money while they're making the game, adding features etc. Its a really cool idea.

I noticed on the front page a game called Breath of Death VII which looks to be based off Breath of Fire. If so, that's awesome in and of itself.

Check out a game called Kenshi. Its only alpha build playable but its got so much potential for the finished product. RPG stuff, buying buildings, etc. Looks awesome.

It looks like a hi-res PS2 game, albeit a good one. I'm not surprised at the creativity on display with indie game devs. They don't suffer from the same restrictions and corporate influences as the big devs.

I dont think all the mods are linked for it. But they're adding stuff all the time.
