Discord is ready to take Steam on head-to-head with today's opening of a brand new storefront. Today's offering is a collection of titles that are favorites of the staff, but the number of games for sale will increase over time. In what is probably its best feature, however, Discord will, at a user's request, scan PCs to see what games are installed and place them in a single location. It's sort of a "virtual bookshelf" and will allow games to be launched from a single application.
The "First on Discord" initiative helps bring indie games to fruition in exchange for an exclusivity window of 90 days.
Today's storefront games include:
- Dead Cells
- Into the Breach
- SpellForce 3
- The Banner Saga 3
- Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
- Hollow Knight
- This is the Police 2
