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

Check your keys from the Be Mine Bundle, Post Apocalyptic Mayhem was added to mine, even though they haven't reached 75K yet. According to the guys at CAG it's showing up to random accounts and is even disappearing, so claim the key right away. Others are getting Dream Aquarium instead.

This isn't a bug, but a new bonus Groupees has added. From the top of the Be Mine Bundle page:

Quote:
Who knows what you're going to get... bonus give at random!

PAM or Dream Aquarium now included

(Note, if you purchased before today, you'll get a random bonus too).
I got PAM. I assume that if they hit $75,000, then I'll get Dream Aquarium too.

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

I got the damn aquarium. Wanted PAM.

My computer gave me a big red warning when I tried to run the aquarium saying they couldn't verify the publisher, so I just deleted the stupid aquarium instead.

Yeah, you're right. Didn't see that.

Glad I got PAM instead of the aquarium. For all it's problems, this has been one of the better bundles for me in terms of games.

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

Indie Gala has added the classic game Postal to every tier, available as a DRM-free download for PC, Mac, and Linux.

Critical Mass also now comes with Mac version on Steam.

The happy hour bonuses are still going on too.

They've also launched something called the Gala Fund. The description is unclear, but it looks like an application process to be in future Gala bundles.

Indie Royale St Patrick's Day Bundle is up for pre-order:
http://www.indieroyale.com/
Quote:
You can now semi-blind pre-order Indie Royale's St. Patrick’s Day Bundle at a recommended €/£/$10 or €/£/$5 USD contribution, and a minimum of $3.99 USD.

The Bundle is headlined by an explosive FPS with a future-leaning setting, available on Windows as a Steam key, Desura key and DRM-free download. Next up the flagpole is a jaunty Windows and Mac adventure game, available on Steam, DRM-free, and on Desura, arrr. Also featured - a brainy Steam-enabled Windows and Mac title 'dispensing' RTS action. Rounding out the bundle is an Indie Royale exclusive Windows/Mac debut (DRM-free and Desura) for an acclaimed satirical platformer, plus a bonus DRM-free Windows RPG overhead shooter from the same creator.

Those who pre-order the St. Patrick's Day Bundle receive a retro bonus: the NES-inspired 15-track album O.S.T from Daniel Capo, available in FLAC and MP3 file formats. Those who pay over the minimum while the bundle is live will also receive the bonus.

I went ahead and picked it up mainly for Hard Reset since I passed on it during the last Steam sale.

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

Hard Reset looks pretty damned cool. Glad I got in on this preorder. Also I liked the demo of DLC Quest on XBLIG.

Anyone else find these deals hard to resist, even when you know that you'll likely never get around to playing any of the games or music?

From Joystiq:

Humble Bundle for Android #2 brings Canabalt to Android


by JC Fletcher on Mar 19th 2012 1:01PM



If you have an Android phone, you've probably been eagerly awaiting this day: the day when Semi Secret Software's auto-runner Canabalt jumps through a window and lands on Android. Not only is it out today, it's part of a new Android-focused Humble Bundle.

Other games in today's pay-what-you-want charity collection include Zen Bound 2, Cogs, and Spiderweb's Avadon: The Black Fortress. Those who pay over the average also get Swords & Soldiers.

Though it's an Android bundle, buying it gets you access to all the games across PC, Mac, and Linux as well, plus soundtracks for everything but Avadon. And, of course, you get the positive feeling of contributing to charity or whatever.

Only 6 or so hours left in this one. Double gift hour time or something, so I think I have two free gift bundles to give away. Links didn't come through correctly, but I'll let you all know if I have one or two to give away.

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

Indie Royale has a Lightning Pack of 5 games from developer NinjaBee Games
http://www.indieroyale.com/
  • Cloning Clyde
  • A Kingdom for Keflings
  • Ancients of Ooga
  • Outpost Kaloki
  • Band Of Bugs

Only 100 hours on the bundle, minimum price started at $2.99.


Kingdom for Keflings free DLC:

Band of Bugs free DLC:
http://www.ninjabee.com/band-of-bugs-pc/



Some of these games are new to PC, but all of them have been released for XBox 360, so the reviews below are for the Xbox versions, which should be very similar to the PC versions:

Amen to that. Every time I buy one of these bundles I get a moment of panic where I think, "Wait, is this the one I bought last week?"
