    Humble Indie Bundle 3 Discussion.

    I just grabbed it. Will edit in some impressions as I play them. Hammerfight was what sold me, as I already had VVVVVV

    Can you gift individual games? Only spotted the bit where you can gift the whole bundle.

    Is it wrong to pay a lower amount just because you have some of the games in the bundle already?

    If you offer less than $1, it gives you a really sad picture to goad your conscience.

    Bought for linux versions as I had most of them already. Glad to see us linux users doing our bit :)

    ugh....

    I tried the hammerfight demo around last Christmas, it was frustrating, limiting and unsatisfying, mouse control was horrible, might play better with a pad, will investigate.

    I tried the vvvvvv demo last year, it was frustrating limiting and unsatisfying, gave me keyboard claw, might play better with a pad.

    I own cogs, as part of some bundle, it was workmanlike and primitive in conceit, in my head it felt like a Bioshock minigame.

    I own crayons physics as part of a pack, its primitive and makes me think of some kind of crazy physics hack for ms paint, but never really held my attention once I saw the man behind to curtain.

    and yet it moves, own it as part of a pack... probably the same pack too. I'm sure it is great or something but the primitive nature of the game made it unenjoyable.

    These are not reviews, I feel that my demands for complexity for compassionate difficulty and B (as opposed to AAA) or greater production values is stopping me enjoying a batch of wonderful pieces of work, but I get limited gaming time, its making me fussy.

    Yet, I can deal with permadeath lofi games like spelunky because of obscene freedom, but when a game has specific loops it wants you to jump through they had better be attainable.

    A right ray of sunshine, you are :)

    I'd recommend Cogs (nifty little sliding block puzzle), Crayon Physics (because it basically is a crazy physics hack for MS Paint, but prettier) , and VVVVVV (for some old-school platformery). And Yet It Moves is a bit of a one-trick pony from what I've seen so far, although admittedly I haven't played much and maybe it introduces some new mechanics after the first few levels. Hammerfight is... strange, frustrating and difficult to control, it's probably the low point of the collection.

    And no, you can't gift individual games - I asked, and the response was "why not just buy another bundle for 1 and gift the whole thing?", which seems like a much better idea.

    Looks like Heliocentric found out the meaning of "indie".

    I already had most of these. So I paid a dollar for Cogs

    Bought it. Didnt have any, and they give you the steam code for it as well. Huzzah!

    Holy SHIT I hate sliding puzzles. Cogs, enjoy your place next to Gish and Lugaru in the "like I'll ever play these games" section of my Steam library.

    Hammerfight is.... Interesting. Shows potential. The controls are definitely very strange, but at least it's not as bad as the aforementioned Gish or Cortex Command. However, the game froze up on me after beating the second stage, so I raged.

    That makes a lot of sense! Cheers.

    I'm very sad to see that there are NO soundtracks included in the Bundle this time around. Especially because PPPPPP is the very best videogame soundtrack that ever entered my listening tubes.

    Maybe some open source or soundtrack love will come along later on, it's been known to happen with the precious bundles

    Paid three dollars because I'm a stingy bastard, the charities are shit, and I probably won't get round to playing most of the games.

    I already had everything except Hammerfight but it's for charity so I said what the hell.

    I'm a big fan of VVVVVV and I thought And Yet it Moves was an interesting puzzle-platformer. Cogs is very pretty and I'd like it more but for the fact that I absolutely loathe sliding tile puzzles.

    what the fuck? I don't care about charity, I want the developers to get all.

    Theres a reason for that, not because Im a cheap bastard, but I seriously do not want to get into it. I just wanted to say that I support only developers! Huzzah!

    There's a slider that lets you choose how your purchase is allocated. Just slide it all the way up for "developer" and reduce the charities to zero.
