I'm working on an educational app for kids. At the end of the sign-up process, the kids must wait for a confirmation from their parents in order to gain access to the app.

While they wait for this to happen, we want to let the kid play a simple game as a way to keep their interest up.

Is there a marketplace or repository for games with such a license that we could either purchase (affordably) or use for free in our own app?

    \$\begingroup\$ Huh, usually it's "Where can I find free art/sounds/etc. for my game?". Where can I find free games for my game is a new one to me :) \$\endgroup\$ – MichaelHouse Jul 10 '12 at 23:20

    \$\begingroup\$ If you ask this question on reddit with a quick explanation of your app, and make a convincing expression of passion for education, you'll probably find a lot of free offers. The indie game dev community is quite altruistic; reddit doubly so. \$\endgroup\$ – Christopher Berman Jul 10 '12 at 23:45

    \$\begingroup\$ Just search through Github or Assembla. Is this app a desktop app or a mobile app? \$\endgroup\$ – Some Guy Sep 8 '12 at 14:22
