    @icup that's possible, although the last time, they put up the indiefort link well before the bundle was live, and clicking on it would show a list of indie games.

    News from the bundle front: GameDevBundle announced the game list on Reddit, CQ has been replaced with a "mysterious game". We'll see.

    New Indie Space Bundle is looking for games: http://spacebundle.com/

    IndieGala adds new bonus, the rather obscure maze game Deadend: Cerebral Vortex.

    Last 20 mins to get IR May Hurray.

    I don't think that Vogel really took the concept of an expanded market seriously, that if he lowered the price he would continue to sell the same 4,000 copies per game but just make half as much. He seems to have a self-defeatist attitude. I mean, who announces a game with "Avernum out for Windows, for what it's worth"?

    Edit: I was looking through that Steam registry site to check it out, and I never really look there, but is it common for already-released items to show up as new ones.? For example, Bioshock 1, 2, and Civ 4 complete are all listed from yesterday, but can already be purchased.

    LOL! From the one interview I've read, he did sound really laid back. He's got this niche, he can live outside the rat race, and he's happy with that. I wish him great luck. And BTW with these lower prices, everybody wins.

    AFAIK it happens when there are some kinds of special offers, e.g. steam bundles or package deals.

    Not really self-defeatist or laid-back, more got the impression he was really bloody nervous about doing anything. He was making a decent living, selling to the same 4000 people one game every year at a premium price. He had a job he liked and was content. I get not wanting to gamble that on the chance at making big money. Because if you drop the prices and don't get those extra sales, it's hard to put them back up without losing people.

    [And even the old games were selling, albeit only a couple a month, people were still buying at full price]

    It's out, FWIW :) the bundle's 7.19 € for eurofolks, or 3.19 € for each game.

    What music will be included in your third set of unlocks after we've donated a sufficient number of boots to Cambodia and candy to blind gamers?

    Blueberry Garden is half casual half procedural-environmental survival horror, I recommend it heartily.

    Osmos is an unpleasant scab of a game, play at your peril.

    Seems a bit harsh. I quite liked Osmos.
    ...common and uninteresting.

    It gets frustrating pretty fast after the introductory levels. Wish it had a gentler difficulty curve.

    I'd second that - lovely idea but it goes from zero to hero (and a hero in need of a LOT of luck) pretty quickly - shame, really.

    It's really hard to get difficulty right when you're a small studio tho - by the time it comes to balancing the game you've been playing it for months - you're really, really good at it - you forget others aren't...

    or so my customers tell me anyway :)

    BeMine is back with an original "build a bundle" gimmick (now, if only half of the games weren't repeats from BeMine1...), list and details in post #2.
