    Speculation - IndieRoyale DIFFICULT bundle

    So, what do YOU think will be in the bundle to be revealed in the next five hours?

    There's four games under the hood. Taking the "Difficult"-attribute, I can only imagine VVVVVV and Super Meat Boy being included. But what would the other two be?

    Speculate away to pass the time until we know for certain!

    Dungeons of Dredmor, maybe. Also Frozen Synapse.

    The games will almost certainly be on Desura, which narrows things down a bit.

    Ahh, I hadn't thought of the possibility of 'difficult' also applying to the games, I had merely been looking on it as a reference to the idea of a 'difficult' second album. Which it obviously is, but the dual meaning also seems a distinct possibility.

    I'm hoping like the first bundle they manage four games I don't own already, even better if they hit the two on my wishlist again.

    Don't forget that Sanctum in the first bundle was Steam only, so Desura doesn't appear to be a strict requirement.

    Sanctum IS on Desura. I can't remember if they gave a code for it on Desura though.

    Registry miners on neogaf found that Time Gentlemen Please/Ben There Dan That are going to be one of the titles (I say one in that Ben There is freeware anyways). Given it is not hard, big, or an alpha, I'm going to wager JamesG is right in that the "difficult" thing is more like a band's sophomore album. It might not be in THIS bundle (all the registry data mentions is Indie Royale) but it'll be in one of the upcoming ones at least.

    Given they likely want to distance themselves from the Humble Bundle I doubt we'll be seeing a repeat of a Humble title so soon.

    Well, in two hours, we'll know. Hmm, Braid would be another candidate for a Difficult bundle, because I'll hold on to my theory - the other bundles are too descriptive. Limbo, too. Hmmm.

    Well, I'll buy it anyway as I find the system fascinating, but I expect I'll have a lot of keys to give away very soon.

    Wasn't the Desura version of Sanctum just a Steam-key anyway?

    I may be wrong.

    FYI it's not any more. There's a new 'Special Edition' out that you have to buy instead (free upgrade for Steam owners).

    SpaceChem?

    Interesting - guess your definition of "Difficult" was better than mine. :)

    It's a shame, I'd have bought another two copies of SpaceChem just because it's so much fun.

    Now if only people could actually buy it rather then the site constantly timeout.

    I battled with it for about an hour and decided I wasn't smart enough. Bought a copy of that HIB for a friend so we could play Frozen Synapse and told him he'd probably be smart enough for SpaceChem.

    I got this bundle - Fate of the World seemed really interesting, but I couldn't convince myself to buy it previously, Scoregasm looks like a really interesting twin-stick shooter (there's actual level design!), but I'm not sure about the other 2.
    Are Ben There etc annoying in that traditional adventure game way where you have to try every different nonsensical combination of items to make any progress? If so, I don't know how much time I'll have for it, but it's highly-praised and apparently genuinely funny, so I'm going to give it a bash and see for myself.
    NightSky looks interesting, but will depend on how brain-hurting it is.
    weekendwarrio.rs - We've got more games than time...

    Spacechem requires a certain...mindset to be played not everyone has.

    I was going for "automaton" brain, which is useful in programming, but yours may work too.

    PS: I'm quite sure you can autosolve Spacechem puzzles using genetic algorithms and neuronal networks, but I don't have enough time to code that. I may after finishing @aiclass :p

    Not so much, but if you do do that there's at least a different joke for every combination.
