    • Show Lifetime Charity Contributions (Per User)

      I was just doing my taxes and adding my charitable contributions. I noticed that i have no way of easily telling how much I have contributed to charity through bundle sites. It would be cool if there was a ticker that showed and updated how much one, as a buyer, has given to charity through the site.

      • Allow removing avatar icon.

        Exactly as it says, allow me to remove the avatar icon. I have one that was added automatically because of connected Facebook account, but I don't want that here.

        • Have a quick link to ask a question to a developer in the game deal of the day

          Sometimes when there is no thread about the game deal, or if the dev is not lurking there, it would be nice to have a quick way to ask the developer.

          For example: "Hi! In Greenlight it says Linux, but in IGS is Windows only. Will we have Linux too? Or is it dependant of a sucessfull greelight process?"

          It happened more than once ;)

          • Fix the youtube embed in forum

            The youtube embed plugin uses http regardless if the provided link is in http or https, which creates the issue where youtube embeds won't show on forum until you "allow unsafe plugins" in your browser. All you have to do is change the embed link in the plugin from http to https.

            • More strongly encourage developers to include Desura keys

              Although this was posted previously it was closed out as "completed". I would like to revisit this again not just for the current game but in general. Most other bundle/indie game deal promotion sites are better about getting the developers to give Desura keys. It seems that maybe you guys leave it up to them but I really wish you were better at pushing for it.

              For myself and a number others I speak with online not having the Desura keys really is a dealbreaker and it doesn't cost the developer anything to get them.

              • Developer must confirm before game is made public on the store.

                The current process of waiting for store approval is very frustrating as it goes live on the store immediately without the developer having any idea when. This makes simultaneous launches very frustrating as I have to just sit and wait for this email to arrive and when it does it's a mad dash to update a bunch of other stuff so people don't get broken links.

                There really needs to be either a final approval step that involves the developer or instead of the game being added immediately to the store there is a delay.

                • Offer national payment methods for other countries

                  Maybe it is not viable right now (not enough foreign costumers), but as the platform grows it would be good to offer national payment methods for some countries or world regions. I can only buy games outside Steam with International Credit Cards, since I do not have one (it has a monthly tax), my store options are very limited.

                  Seeing all those indie games and not being able to buy them always sadden me.

                  • Include icons for games that offer local or online multiplayer (and maybe controller support?) visible on both the purchase page and wallet.

                    Just a quick visual reference, since it can be hard to keep track of all of them once you start to build up a collection, especially with Bonus games.

                    • Include more sort options (and version info) on the "Game Wallet" page.

                      It would be especially nice if users could sort their collection by alpha/beta/finished status. (If I play through a game completely in Beta I'm unlikely to play it again in its final form, so I'd rather be able to see which games have reached a 'final'/public release).

                      Likewise, it's great that new-version-released emails get sent now (assuming all devs are using those?), but it would also be great if the version number (or at least upload date) would show up on the Wallet page, to see at a glance what's been updated.

                      • Offer Torrents as a download option (As per Humble Bundle)

                        You could reduce your bandwidth and potentially increase download speed, especially with current games, were you to seed the install files and share them via torrents instead of direct downloads.

                        Humble bundle and presumably other indie outfits do this.

                        • Make games or bonuses timed exclusives

                          King Arthur's Gold and Sentinel, both recently IGS deals, have now appeared in other bundles only a week later, including the same bonuses offered with IGS, which is quite disappointing for IGS buyers. I think that in certain cases, IGS should seek timed exclusivity (perhaps 1 month) in order to improve value for customers and keep up IGS's reputation.

                          • Sticky the current game's forum topic on the homepage

                            There have been several games on IGS that are difficult to understand until someone else writes up a review or explains why the game is awesome. At the same time, the official thread for the game is getting very little attention. I think both of these problems might be solved at the same time by putting a forum widget or a link to the game's forum topic as part of the game description.

                            • Create an easy feedback mechanism for reporting buy/no-buy decisions

                              For those of us who view every deal, I think there is an opportunity to have a mechanism to report why we bought or didn't buy each deal and to have that on the current-deal page or in our account on the past-deals page. Putting this in the forums would be cluttered, but making a streamlined reporting mechanism would provide a quick pipeline into the opinions of at least a subset of the market.

                                  • Allow users to increase their payment later

                                    Not just to get extra goodies (though I'm not opposed to that), but also to simply reward a good developer further. I suspect other people find themselves where I often am on a purchase: "Hm, looks like a decent game, I'm willing to try it for a couple bucks" then later "Wow, this is a GREAT game, I'd like to encourage the developer!" Given that the average payment seems to hover around $1.50, I'd guess a lot of people are in that category.

                                    • Allow submitting already uploaded game builds from various file hosting services.

                                      When dealing with games whose size is over 1GB, having to upload the same build to various websites is quite painful. Allowing the developer to give a direct link of the build in a file hosting service (eg: Dropbox) would help streamline the updating process.

                                      • Create an achievement system for games bought, or money spent, and give badges/bonuses for reaching those

                                        As the title says, something similar to what Indie Royale did on their website, for example give a bonus (a soundtrack, an alpha, a comic, ehatever) for each 10 games purchased.

                                        • Inform buyers beforehand about soundtrack formats

                                          It is very frustrating to pay extra for bundled game soundtracks, only to realize they're all in lossy formats. Either inform the buyer beforehand on what exactly he is about to pay for, or encourage developers to upload in a lossless format (eg. FLAC) from the beginning.
