BTW if I'm not mistaken, there's only 24/48 hours left for GameDevBundle, last chance to throw some monies at these guys, who probably didn't have the easiest time with this bundle, summer sale and everything.

Indie Royale - The July Jubilee Bundle just started and features:
Mutant Storm Reloaded
(and "Rose and Time" as a bonus)
Well, it was an instabuy for me, cause i wanted Geneforge and Unepic for a really long time an i was hoping this steam sale for the Geneforge games to be 75% discounted. Unepic seems great too, hopefully i will sink lots of hours in these games.

It's worth just for Geneforge, but I'm not sure I'm gonna chip in this time. Geneforge Saga is probably hundreds of hours of gameplay...
edit: done updating the first post with all the usual linkage.

Agreed. Get it for Geneforge if you don't have them already. Good stuff Maynard.

Looks like they might go over 5 €, I don't think they managed that feat last time.
PS: updated IG Mobile entry; GameDevBundle has added a timer, just a bit more than 6 hours are left.

The Geneforge games are an awesome value. I got them a while back and played through them all, start to finish, and they are some of the best RPGs I've ever played (especially the 4th and the 5th).
I'm actually a bit confused as to why Spiderweb would want to put them in a bundle. I've always seen them as the crown jewel of Spiderweb software, so sticking the whole collection into a bundle for 5 dollars just seems like they are cheapening their best franchise somewhat. I hope they know what they are doing.

Maybe there's a new Geneforge in the pipeline, or a reboot?
One of the things that keeps /me/ from getting Geneforge (or Avernum) is that the first episodes in the series are now pretty old, and I'm not sure they aged well. While the Geneforges are a very different and peculiar beast, if I had to start playing a Spiderweb game, my choice would be either the Avernum re-reboot or, better yet, wait for the Avadon sequel which should be a more approachable game by my standards.

The only other explanation I can think of, is to put a spotlight on the series and revive sales. Besides the direct revenue, inclusion in a bundle increases word of mouth, thus desirability and ultimately sales outside the bundling window.

Geneforge always under-performed Avernum, if I remember. Whatever value is left in Geneforge, Jeff could wait 5 years for those purchases to be made. Or he can bundle them and put them on sale and maybe squeeze the remaining value out sooner, with the price drop counterbalanced by a volume increase. Honestly I probably will not play the 500 hours of Geneforge in this pack, and having bought the bundle does not make me less likely to buy a new Vogel game in the future.

My theory on the whole "Spiderweb Games are suddenly cheap everywhere" thing is that he's realised HOW MUCH MONEY he can make by selling cheap games to lots of people (instead of expensive games to a handful of sycophants and shut-ins).
I'd reckon he's made more since he released his 'cheap' games on Steam than he made before that in-total - whether that's a good thing or not depends on him but my guess is his eyes have been opened to the "pile it high and sell it cheap" mantra.
