Re: Ultimate Indie Bundle Thread - Humble, Royale, Gala, etc.

My first indie bundle. Loved LIMBO and Bastion on XBLA, look forward to playing them again. Very excited about the others because I've never got a chance to play Psychonauts.

Re: Ultimate Indie Bundle Thread - Humble, Royale, Gala, etc.

An interesting note on Humble Bundle 5 for Linux users: you can redeem the bundle on Ubuntu Software Center, which is Ubuntu's answer to the Mac App Store:

Re: Ultimate Indie Bundle Thread - Humble, Royale, Gala, etc.

It's somewhat crazy how much better the Humble Bundles sell compared to other bundles, but in my opinion they also tend to have the best games.


The Bundle in a Box Adventure Bundle has reached the absolutely lowest minimum price of $0.99. The average price has also been dropping since the minimum dropped to $0.99. It was over $5 this morning, and now is $4.84 There's still a few more days left to the bundle, so it might be worth it to wait a while longer to see how low the average price goes (assuming you want the beat-the-average bonuses).

Most of the sales goal bonuses have also unlocked.

The immediately previous bundle was the Humble Botanicula Debut, which didn't have Android versions. The one prior to that was Humble Bundle for Android 2, which as the title suggests had Android versions and followed (but not immediately) a previous Android Bundle.

As pinata242 pointed out, best to check the page for what platforms the given bundle supports.

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP was on iPad and iPhone first. However, the developers have stated they're not making an Android port.

Re: Ultimate Indie Bundle Thread - Humble, Royale, Gala, etc.

Humble V passed 3 million now. Still 9 days left. I wonder if they'll add a few more games at the beat the average price?

The numbered Humble Bundles typically adds the core games from the previous number bundle. So I'd expect Humble IV to be added at some point.


Indie Royale has added the game Ichi (PC/Mac DRM-free download) to their Graduation Bundle:
http://www.indieroyale.com/


Indie Gala 5 has added 5 albums to their highest tier:
  • Baron Von Luxxury - 'The Last Seduction'
  • Losers Come From Above - 'Biggest Failure of All Time'
  • Electric Children - 'You Are'
  • DJ Cutman - 'Poweglove'
  • DJ Cutman - 'Deadmau5
http://www.indiegala.com/


Bundle in a Box has unlocked all the bonuses, and has only a day left. The average price has dropped to $4.25:

Re: Ultimate Indie Bundle Thread - Humble, Royale, Gala, etc.

Humble Bundle 5 has added 3 games to existing orders, and new beat-the-average orders.
https://www.humblebundle.com/

The games are:
Braid
Super Meat Boy
Lone Survivor


Braid and Super Meat Boy were in previous bundles, but Lone Survivor is new. Soundtracks for the new games haven't been added, at least not yet.

Re: Ultimate Indie Bundle Thread - Humble, Royale, Gala, etc.

I wasn't paying attention and upped my donation to get the new games, but realized now I didn't need to.


Oh well, it's for a good cause.

Re: Ultimate Indie Bundle Thread - Humble, Royale, Gala, etc.

This latest bundle almost deserves a thread itself. I already have Limbo and Braid but I bought it anyway just for the others.

Re: Ultimate Indie Bundle Thread - Humble, Royale, Gala, etc.

Indie Royale has added a Collection feature to their site, where you can tie all your previous bundles to one account. If you used the same email address for all of them, they've been collected automatically, and if you have a Desura account, then you already have an account for your Collection.

http://www.indieroyale.com/collection

The Collection offers rewards based on the number of previous bundles you've purchased. Each reward unlocks a bonus item like an album or game (or maybe both!). The rewards unlocked so far are:
  • 5 bundles - Chiptopia (best-of album from 8-Bit Weapon and ComputeHer) (MP3 and FLAC)
  • 10 bundles - Super Space Rubbish for PC/Mac/Linux, Desura + OST (MP3 and FLAC)
  • 15 bundles - Fireball for: PC/Mac, Desura

Edit: The Desura key is for all the platforms the game is on. The key doesn't show up on the Mac page on Indie Royale, but when i went to my Desura account, I have access to the Mac versions of the games.

There are locked bonuses for 20 and 25 bundles purchased, but they've only had 15 bundles so far.

If you ever missed or skipped a bundle, you can add it to your wishlist if you desire to purchase it now. If enough people add a bundle to their wishlist, they may re-launch it for a limited time, and you'd be notified of its availability.

Escape Goat was a blast on the 360. Really short, but fun Lost Vikings style game.

Re: Ultimate Indie Bundle Thread - Humble, Royale, Gala, etc.

IndieFort Bundle 2 is live:
http://www.gamersgate.com/indiefort-bundle

Pay $5.99+ for:
  • 3079
  • Fortix 2
  • Aztaka
  • Dark Scavenger
