    The weekly GOG sale, this one Linux-themed, includes Bionic Dues for 4 bucks. I still haven't played it, because I'm a bad person, but I remember that some people *cough*Vinraith*cough* were holding...

    Bought Qvadriga, Hate Plus and Dominique Pampelmousse. Not a huge discount on Qvadriga, but it's been calling to me for a while - I'm not buying just because of the sale.

    Thanks for reminding me about that one! The devlog seems to indicate that good things are happening, although not that it'll be ready next week or anything, so here's hoping it's great.

    Cheers Alms for an old post that pointed me toward the right bundle for a game I was sure I'd bought. It was back in the old days before the bundles thread, but it was still you.

    You might want to have a look at Not the Robots!. There's a demo on Kongregate, but not on Steam for some reason, even though the main game is on Steam.
