IndieBox: for Gamers Who Miss Boxes!
There are lots of cool ideas on the Internet that never really make it out of the "startup" phase. IndieBox has been around only for a few months, but I really, really hope it catches on.
Here's the idea:
Every month, you get a Linux/Mac/Windows-compatible Indie game in the mail.
The games come on a really cool USB drive shaped like a credit card covered in awesome game art. It's like a modern-day Nintendo cartridge.
Inside the game box (which is also covered in game art), you'll find posters, keychains, cardboard cutouts, CDs of game music or anything else the folks at IndieBox can scrape together to make the monthly game awesome and nostalgic.
Most months you'll also get a Steam code, because although old-school boxed games are awesome, Steam still is really convenient.

As someone who belongs to a "coffee of the month" club, I can assure you that getting a fresh new thing every month in the mail is fun and exciting. When that new thing is a nostalgic trip to my youth, plus a really fun cross-platform game? For me, it's worth the $16.99 a month. If you miss the days of buying games in a box from the department store, you'll love the IndieBox experience. Check it out at http://www.theindiebox.com.
