Twice The Bundle, Twice The, Uh, Fundle

By Alec Meer on June 19th, 2012.

Don’t forget in these crowdsourced times that indie bundles remain very much a going concern. If anything, the huge success of the latest Humble Bundle (alright it might be only semi-indie, whatever, don’t be boring) means focus might once again turn to pay-what-you-want, publisher-free collections. Two more have turned up in recent days. IndieGala’s latest contains both PC and Android versions of some right little RPG and strategy crackers, while Indiefort’s second volley has a more fixed price for a selection of higher-tech PC games.
