About ShinyLoot:

ShinyLoot opened to the public for beta in March 2013, and was founded as the solution to a growing number of high quality, independently developed games falling under the radar. Customers to which these games are targeted may often be very interested but unable to find said games without hours of research. The trait and filter search system solves this problem by bridging the gap between high quality games and gamers looking for a particular set of characteristics. To ensure customer satisfaction, ShinyLoot offers all game downloads with minimal to no DRM and with no separate client required. However, an optional download manager is provided to organize games purchased on ShinyLoot as well as provide an easy method of downloading games.
