There is something about indiegala that I don't like, I can't put my finger on it though.
I'm actually thinking that I'm going to grab this IndieGala because I'm missing Deponia, Cities in Motion, and Painkiller Black... all of which I wouldn't mind having, though I don't see myself ever really playing through Deponia... not a huge point and click fan, gonna be honest.
Are you new to IndieGala internet? Because their site has always been this bad... especially when compared to something as simple as the IndieRoyale site... which imo is amazing.
If Fate of the World comes up in one of the Indie Royale rehashes, I'd recommend it. It was in the first or second bundle they did, along with all its DLC. I really like it - it's what keeps me coming back to every new Indie Royale to see what might be in there. Definitely one of the best things I've ever got from a bundle, in terms of games I've actually played.
Going to pass on this one; Soulcaster looks interesting though. As for Indie Gala, I tried to purchase from them a couple of months ago and it didn't process for some reason. I didn't lose anything by it, but so far none of their bundles since has been interesting enough to make me try harder to get it.
I agree on the rest though, they go about things in a kind of amateurish way, and even though I can't help being affected by that, the only thing I really hold against them, is how they kept putting publisher fed crap in their bundles for quite some time now.
Their latest line-ups, however, seem to have changed for the better.
@ johnki you agree with your point on price, but it's more because Daedalic's prices tend to be higher than other indies/indie adventure games out there. I look at Deponia and its full price is twice than Gemini Rue, Resonance or Primordia when they debuted. The whole Walking Dead series (5 games) is just 20% more expensive than Deponia.
I'm sincerely hoping Daedalic's partecipation in this bundle means they've been getting the message that almost everybody else got already, i.e. cut prices and sales soar.
BTW just saw the current's gala BTA price has dropped, had a suspicion it was fixed this time. Better off.
For the one of the finest examples of people seeing things differently, look no further than the relaxing games thread, some suggestions are so far fetched I'm always on the verge of writing them off as pure trolling.
I'm glad you did, it's a solid line-up.
Now, everyone else start stuffing your pockets with 0.01$ bundles! I want to see it under 4$!!!1! :P
Anyone who picked-up the Humble Bundle which contained PuppyGames "Droid Assault" - or indeed picked-up the PuppyGames "UltraBundle" or just bought Droid Assault from them - it's been added to Steam today and you can get a key!
If you bought from Humble - get the key from them.
If you bought from BMT Micro (Puppy) - you can enter your email address here and get a key sent immediately (Note: You must have installed and run the game and entered your address at least once before for this to work!)
More Steam games then...
Games: Nitronic Rush, Ascension, Celestial Mechanica, Iamscared, Abobo's Big Adventure.
Oh hey... should I have Droid Assault? Because it doesn't seem like I have it...
Was it not a bonus at some point? I'm sure it's been in at least 1 bundle because I'm fairly sure I have at least 2 copies (I got THREE emails with Steam keys!!)
BTW since we are talking about keys, and I probably forgot to mention it here, I asked Theo Waern of Skygoblin about Steam keys for copies of The Journey Down sold through IGS, and I was replied they still haven't got any agreement.
It could just be that they're copy/pasting from RotT (which was their first Steam game IIRC) - this does bring-up the interesting question of developers who do/don't offer Steam keys for games tho.
Puppy have a proper page and hand-out keys happily - but not every developer does that (or seems able to) which seems a bit odd. It's a massive task, in theory - I know that when I asked Luke (Radian) for Desura keys for his games he "went on holiday" for a fortnight (I would have too!) - but he did send them when he got back ;)
Looking through my heap of games, the only games which are on Steam but which I don't have on there are
A few retail titles (The Witcher, Kings Bounty)
Some of Positech/Cliffski's games (GSB and Democracy 2) - I emailled him asking about Steam Keys and got no reply at all
Dins Curse (which I got from D2D in a sale so it's hardly down to Soldak to throw keys at me for that!?)
Most of the Greenlighters are promising Steam keys but it may not be as simple as they think? Even if Steam are happy to give them a stack of codes, they have the less than fantastic job of handing them all out (IIRC the Defenders Quest team spent eons designing a system to do that?)
Is there any chance of people who purchased Indie Royale's Summer Bundle receiving Steam keys for The Journey Down? Not that I expect IR to do that but it would be quite nice, nonetheless (HIB did give away Steam keys retroactively for games that went on Steam later on).
The month of March will be more special forevermore, because for those 31 days each year, the title of this thread will actually be accurate. ^_^
