A new website has launched today with a closed beta for Jump, which is to video games what Spotify is for music. Those who subscribe will have access to a library of up to 60 indie games (developers will be able to submit more for consideration in the future) free for the first 14 days, and just $9.99 per month after that.
The games will load in Jump’s app. This may take longer depending on individual internet connections, but most games should be ready to play in about a minute, and they won’t take up a lot of disc space, thanks to HyperJump delivery technology. Players won’t be able to stream games, however, as Jump uses HyperJump specifically to avoid issues like lag, which are frequent in streams.
Jump will be available on PC, Linux, and Mac devices, and it will support VR. The closed beta will last from today, July 10, to July 24. For more information, or if you just want to give Jump a try for yourself, click here.
