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

Humble Bundle Mojam
http://www.humblebundle.com/

Watch live, as Mojang (Minecraft) and friends create games from scratch in the span of a weekend! Pay what you want to get the games, and all proceeds go to your choice of four charities: Child's Play, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the American Red Cross, and charity: water

The Bundle will be up for 60 hours, during which everyone can watch live streams of the development process, while donors can download and play live builds of the respective games as they're being developed..

The three games are:
  • Mojang is developing the game Catacomb Snatch, a real-time strategy shoot 'em up with a steampunk ancient Egypt theme. You can watch a live stream of the development on the main site.
  • Oxeye Game Studio (Cobalt) is developing an as-yet-unnamed dungeon crawler/beat 'em up set in Post-apocalyptic WWII
  • Wolfire Games (Lugaru) is developing another game. Little is known so far, except that it involves trains. Live streams of the developers available here:
    http://www.twitch.tv/wolfireaubrey and http://www.twitch.tv/wolfiredavid

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

Indie Gala 2 Bundle

http://www.indiegala.com/

Similar to the first bundle, the games are Windows compatible Steam codes. However, there are a few changes:

This time round, there's only a limited number of bundles available!

The games/albums you get is based upon the amount you pay:
  • Carebear Bundle
    Games: Bunch of Heroes, Fortix 2, Critical Mass, & Hacker Evolution.
    Music: Skitter EP by Casey Lalonde, Comfort by Giraffage, Beautiful EP by The Numbers, and first bundle album Good Luck by Robot Science
  • Big Saver Bundle adds:
    Games: Roboblitz and Greed Corp.
    Music: Fit the Paradigm by Jack Butler, Square by Robot Science, Thank you by Casey Lalonde, The Gala Selection by Ulrich Schnauss
  • Epic Gala Bundle adds:
    The first bundle games Your Doodles Are Bugged!, Zombie Shooter 1 & 2, inMomentum, Hacker Evolution: Duality and Hacker Evolution: Untold.
    The first bundle album Doodads by Robot Science

The price of the bundles change based upon what the current average price is, although you can always pay the minimum of $1 to get the Carebear Bundle. If buying gifts, you can purchase more than one at a time for a discount, and each gift will get the bonus for beating the average (assuming you beat it).

All the music albums are available in both MP3 320kbps and FLAC formats.

Video trailer for the bundle:

Be Mine is back, but still under heavy load, so you'll have to do some page refreshing.

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

Anybody been following the Mojam? I purchased, but haven't actually seen any of the building.

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

I don't think I've downloaded a single soundtrack from these bundles. Is there a big demand for that sort of thing? I should probably post them here if that's allowed.

Also, I'll take a gift of the gala bundle if anyone has extras.

The soundtracks/albums are only for bundle purchasers. Many of them are available for sale separately. So don't post them.

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

Humble Bundle Mojam is over.

Not all the games have been released. Fists of Resistance by Oxeye Game Studio is due to be released sometime today:
http://twitter.com/#!/Kinten/status/171886676619165696

Wolfire Games have released the soundtrack for their game Broadside Express on the bundle download page, along with source code and an experimental Flash version of their game.


These pages have good overviews on how to play Catacomb Snatch and Broadside Express:
http://www.nerd-age.com/mojangs-moja...tacomb-snatch/
http://www.nerd-age.com/wolfires-moj...dside-express/


Due to the source code releases, several fans have taken it upon themselves to finish/enhance the games.

Ubersoft has taken the source code for Catacomb Snatch and have made their own fork: Uber Catacomb Snatch, which fixes some bugs and adds some features:
http://main.ubersoftech.com/project/ucs

On the Wolfire forum, people are discussing completing/expanding Broadside Express. Game composer Anton Riehl has contributed a second track for future use in the game, and has stated he'll contribute additional music as needed.

Indie Gala 2 has added the Android game Fruit Blitz to all tiers.
http://mim.io/75e852?fe=1&pact=7775812926

The game is made available as a download, so your Android device will have to support sideloading.

Yeah, you are right, for some reason I was thinking they had unique download codes so you could give them away.

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

Indie Royale Alpha Collection is up:
http://www.indieroyale.com/

The games are:
  • Towns
    for: pc, mac, linux
  • 3079
    for: pc, mac, linux
  • Wyv and Keep
    for: pc, (mac and linux in 3-6 months)

You also get a Desura key for all 3 games and the OST for Wyv and Keep in MP3 and FLAC format.

Keep in mind that these are Alpha releases of games, and as such there may be play issues not found in a finished game (bugs, incomplete art, levels, etc.) Buying this bundle, you get access to the Alpha releases, as well as all future upgrades, including the finished version.

Buying the games separately on Desura would cost you around $30, and that's with two of them offering an "alpha discount":

http://www.desura.com/games/towns
http://www.desura.com/games/3079
http://www.desura.com/games/wyv-and-...-the-lost-idol

So $5 represents over 80% off their sale prices.

Buying into an alpha release of a game may not be for everyone though. You want to be keen to help support the completion of the game and willing to gamble a bit that the finished product will be something you'll like. There are demos for all 3 games if you want to see how they play now before you buy (see Desura links above for demo downloads).

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

Indie Royale has stated on Twitter that if the games are added to Steam, Alpha Bundle purchasers will get keys:
http://twitter.com/#!/indieroyale/st...05980277948416
Quote:
If the games get picked up for Steam, the devs have told us they will provide keys...
Note that's if they get accepted onto Steam. I recall that for the Indie Royale New Years Bundle, developer radiangames said that he had submitted Super Crossfire to Steam, but it was rejected.

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

Indie Gala 2 has revised their Happy Hour bonuses. Now, new buyers get 2-for-1 when they buy a gift, and previous buyers get 3-for-1 gift purchases. People who bought the bundle super early into it (by 11:59 PM on 2/11/2012) get 4-for-1 gift purchases.

Quote:
Happy Hour! Double Gifts! New buyers for every gift purchase get a 2nd bonus gift for free ( 2x1 )! All gifts are doubled! Remember to check "IS IT A GIFT"!

And if you are an early buyer the deal is even bigger!

2 bonus gifts for free for every gift purchased (3 x 1 )

And if you bought in the first week ( before 23.59 of February 11 2012 PST ) You get 3 bonus gifts for free for every gift purchased (4 x 1 )
I think this happy hour just started at 3:00 PM EST, but I don't know how long it goes for.

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

Forgot to mention that Indie Gala has also created a survey to gauge how people feel about the Happy Hours:

http://apps.facebook.com/opinionpoll...id=AB9jcO6vprI
https://docs.google.com/a/strandbook...5BeXc6MQ#gid=0


Meanwhile, Groupees has revised the Be Mine bundle, dropping Goal #2 down to $50,000. They're currently at $44,000, so reaching this goal and unlocking the bonus seems likely.

They've also revealed that Goal #3 is $75,000, and the bonus attached to it is "Dream Aquarium Special Be Mine Limited Edition" for PC/Mac.
