Crayon Physics: Pay What You Bloody Want

Goo did it. Radiohead did it. Even educated independent PC videogames do it. This time, it's Petri Purho's Crayon Physics deluxe - yours for however much you care to pay for it. 10p or 10 pentasquilliongillion Venusian sex-dollars, whatever you feel it deserves/are comfortable with. It's a strategy that worked out pretty well for 2D Boy when they did the same thing with World of Goo last year, despite the vast majority of folk offering insultingly but inevitably low tithes. Be interesting to see if it plays out as profitably for Sir Purho; while his game certainly isn't the out and out triumph that Goo was, it's a fun and inventive science'n'creation puzzler that's certainly worth a punt in this mega-deal. Which lasts only until January 15th, so hurry.

In other Super Indie Game Deal news, if you preorder both Natural Selection 2 and Overgrowth at once, you get 'em both for pretty much the price of one. More on that in tomorrow's Bargain Bucket, and videos of all three games I've whiffled about here are below the cut.

Here's Crayon Physics Deluxe, replete with calming music:

And here's the Overgrowth/NS2 deal trailer:
