Give Some More: An All-Star TF2 Charity Match

What happens when you put Notch, Gearbox, Yogscast, Day[9], Bethesda, Valve and more in a room together? You’ll find out soon in a new release from Vivid Video. (DON’T Google that if you don’t already know what it is and/or are being observed by anyone). What about when you just put them in a virtual room? Well, then they play a Team Fortress 2 match for charity.

Free The Meat Boy One! Ransoming Super Meat Boy Galaxy

The entire gaming world and its robo-dog is currently going from door-to-door and begging for cash, so a shaft of philanthrophic light amidst the Kickstarted darkness is a welcome one. We posted about Mario/McMillen & Refenes mash-up Super Meat Boy Galaxy last week, but it was unclear whether Aubrey Hesselgren would ever share more of his half-gag, half-tribute project with the world. Turns out, he will. BUT ON ONE CONDITION. That condition is cash. Of course it’s cash! This cash will not, however, go to the developer – it will go to The Samaritans. If SMBG is successfully ‘ransomed’ for £10,000, its prototype will be freed and released to the public.

Blood money, I call it! Blood money! And also a very smart idea.

Bundlebrag: Indie Gala 2 Now On

Alec’s gone to a quiet place, to wash away the emotional stress of trying to keep up with bundled up charitable independent games. He’s using the sound of the seagulls to drown out the buzzwords of “pay what you want”, and “donation”, while I man up in RPSes montage gym. I just did seven squats and fought a bear to a double-knockout, all cut to Total Eclipse of The Heart. Now I’m ready for you, Indie Gala 2.

Use Wallet On Charity – The AGS Bake Sale

He's probably looking for his wallet.

Another day, another games bundle? Yes… but more importantly, also no. The AGS Bake Sale is a collection of 14 mostly point-and-clicky games that even the most hardcore adventurer won’t have played yet, because all of them were written specifically for it. In addition, every last penny earned will be going straight to Child’s Play, possibly in a big blue collection plate. The developers are taking nothing. Not even chocolate money. That is how much they care!

Gish Joins The Humble Voxatraon Bundle

Go on! It's for charity!

We’ve once again been dragged into our bitter feud with the game package the Humble Indie Bundle. We’ve already posted about the addition of The Binding Of Isaac and Blocks That Matter to the Voxatron package, and they’ve responded by adding Gish and Lexaloffle minigames to it in a futile attempt to make us look out-of-date. This is like the Cold War all over again. Consider this post RPS’s Cuban Missile Crisis. Your move, Bundle.
