    Historically early $1 buyers (and $.01 before that) have been given the week two bonus games. I can't think of any other time it's been like this, anyway (although there are weeks without bonus games)

    I got the BTA on the previous humble bundle, the Mobile only one, without BTA. It must be new this one

    Off the top of my mind, I think it was introduced in HIB 9.

    Indeed, that policy started with Humble Bundle 9 last month. Beating the average from week 1 was a no-brainer on that one, as it got you Fez and FTL.

    Seems like it. Well, till the next policy change, I suppose.

    I could argue this is an improvement - it stops me from going 'Nothing in this bundle that tempts me - I'll just offer the minimum, and gamble on the 2nd week BTA games'.

    In other news, IGS' latest is Great Permutator

    Mnemnoch, guess they could change their mind but, in my view, this fits in the greater shift of paradigm Humble is going through: every step is making it less generous, less open, more business-like and profit oriented.

    Well, it probably didn't help that the week 2 games were consistently leaking a week early.

    For those who purchase Eluisis in Groupees (Be Mine 8) steam key is available now in your profile page. And as for Salvation Propechy (Build a Greenlight Bundle) you can get your steam key in Desura.

    I must be really out of touch then, can't remember when was the last time that happened. The last one I do remember was for the Origin bundle that turned out to be completely wrong and the reason why I stopped mentioning them for a while.

    Most Humble leaks rely on Steam registry entries, a method which will only work when several games are grouped in a single key; that's also why you see even less leaks for most other bundles that have always given out individual keys: there's been some instance of the page going live before launch but that's it.

    Very nice, thanks for the heads up.

    Bridge Constructor keys should also be available from Groupees BAMM.

    New Humble Weekly:



    That BAGB4 shows how much I love the "Build a bundle" format - some real gems (Mr. Bree+, Zigfrak), some "never heard about but look interesting" options (Man in a Maze, Inverto) among some stinkers (Deo, Angvik, Frozen Hearth). Picking and choosing among them is one of my favorite parts.

    Is Frozen Hearth that bad? It seems interesting from the greenlight promotion material

    This might not be a fair assessment, but man, the reviews are disheartening...

    To tell you the truth the only one who caught my eye was Inverto. Mr Walker had some nice words for it:

    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013...ds-on-inverto/

    BTW I might pull the trigger on the Damned Bundle 2 because of Lucius. Jim thought it didn't really reach the heights it could have aspired to, but that does not stop us, right?

    Zigfrak (BaB) is bloody excellent - if you've the remotest interest in "Starlancer meets Diablo" you should take a peek

    It has a LOT of loot

    I also like the pitch of "Man in a Maze" - it's probably the best game description I've read in years...

    "Man in a Maze asks a simple question - would you risk your life for a set of steak knives? "

    That will take some topping...

    Didn't you say it also happens to be terribly frustrating or is my memory failing me?

    The mobile version has a pretty Metacritic score, then again, so does Mini Motor Racing...

    Mr Bree+ is awesome.

    Imagine Super Meat Boy but with less frustration (shorter levels and copious checkpoints), a cool, eerie soundtrack and (so far) an intriguing premise/storyline.
