Loot Play Debuts

Loot Crate announces a new addition to their roster of subscription crates called Loot Play which will deliver a monthly selection of independent PC games. They call this subscription "the first of its kind on the platform," which is not true, as the Humble folks have been running Humble Monthly for three years now. This is only available in the U.S. to start, and they say that games will be redeemed via Steam codes. "We want to solve two problems with Loot Play. We want to help subscribers find new games that are curated with a focus on creative new voices, and we want to help these independent studios reach new audiences through our large network of Looters," said Erik Reynolds, VP of Product Marketing and Communications, Loot Crate. "Loot Play will be Loot Crate's first digital subscription product and will open the door for the company to continue its growth through digital offerings, redefine collecting and explore the relationship fans have with content." Here's more:
Each digital crate month will have one featured title, a title that is the anchor of each month and fully revealed in our marketing assets. We'll dive into the stories of the development teams and their unique voices in the games industry through stories on The Daily Crate, we'll feature them on our Tuesday streams on Twitch and Mixer, and they will be the star of that month's marketing push. The other four games in each crate will be a mystery in keeping with Loot Crate tradition, but we will show those teams some love on unboxing day, near the end of each crate cycle. Our debut featured title for Loot Play is Crossing Souls, developed by Fourattic and published by Devolver Digital!

Kind of weird this wasn't already a thing considering how comfortable some indies are with nepotism and payola.

I'm pretty sure that within the EU only Belgium and the Netherlands have banned loot crates. Maybe Germany?

Nah you are right, after checking the site it's basically another humble subscription service. Not a loot box with games

and loot boxes are not illegal yet either. Germany (like any other nation in the EU) wants EU decision on this, so it will eventually fall into gambling laws no doubt. But it hasn't happened yet.

We're the first on the PC to do this! It's completely unique! So unique we've totally copy-pasta'd the entire MO of Humble Crate.

Never let a goddamn marketoid speak. Keep it in the cellar, chained to the wall.
