Hello, I am one of the developers behind War of the Human Tanks. Since we are involved with the IndieFort Countdown Bundle I would like to tell you about what this bundle is and how it works. But first, have a look at its trailer on YouTube.

Countdown Bundle is made of five separate bundles, a new bundle every week for five weeks. Each bundle is made of four games and priced at $4. For each bundle you buy, the next one will be $1 cheaper. So if you buy the first one, the second bundle is only $3; buy that and the next one is $2, going that way next one is $1 and the final bundle (that is to say, the one War of the Human Tanks is in) will be completely free.

That's $10 for a total of 20 games at the end of five weeks. We also have bonuses that will unlock upon reaching set sales goals that include 7 more games, 6 OSTs and an add-on. Making the full price of everything you are getting for just $10 into a grand total of $250. A 96% discount is a deal you should not to miss.

We have also teamed up with the kind folks at the charity organization Help-Daniel. We are dedicating part of the proceeds from the full five weeks of sales to him, and want to reach out to the community for help in the hopes he makes a full recovery soon.

Since this bundle is hosted by GamersGate, you will get a key for everything there. Also the games on this bundle that have Steam versions already present will give Steam keys to add to your account. (Marked those with (STEAM) below) The rest are all on Greenlight (except 2, here is a link to the Greenlight Collection) and you will get a Steam key for those when they are greenlit with your votes. So don't forget to vote YES for them. (Marked those with (Greenlight) below)

IndieFort Countdown Bundle:

Week 1:
Aeon Command (Greenlight)
Genetrive 2
Space Pirates and Zombies (STEAM)
Waveform (STEAM)

Week 2:
Caster (STEAM)
Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greece (STEAM)
Strategic War in Europe (Greenlight)
Zombies (Greenlight)

Week 3:

Terrorhedron (Greenlight)

Week 4:

Syder Arcade (Greenlight)

Week 5
War of the Human Tanks (Greenlight)
Will Fight for Food (Greenlight)

This is really a pretty cool bundle/promo/whatchamacallit. I'm definitely gonna be in for week 4. I've been waiting for a shot at getting Achron cheap. The fact that I will get a copy on Gamersgate as well as a copy on steam makes it all the sweeter.

Hmm, this seems a way to consolodate Greenlight votes for certain games as well, making them more likely to get approval because they were in a bundle telling people to vote them up. Smart.

This works out great with GamersGate's gifting system. I'm going to buy all 5 weeks and if there are any titles that don't particularly interest me I'll just include them in my CAG Christmas giveaway.

One suggestion: "Sell" the bundle in the thread's title. Put that you can get up to 20 games for $10, or something along those lines.

Agreed. I'm looking and seeing two bundles I'd certainly want, and at that point it's worth the extra $3 to pick up the last three bundles.

Has Gamersgate actually confirmed that you'll get Steam keys if Greenlight games from these bundles are greenlit?

Still, kinda tempted to go for the whole shebang. At the rate they're adding games via Greenlight I may be dead before all the bundle games are added, though.

When we were discussing this option for War of the Human Tanks, I talked with GamersGate and Valve and both were okay with providing Steam keys to the previous buyers when the game is greenlit. While planning this bundle I suggested this to the other studios involved and they were positive with the idea as well. So yea consider it confirmed.

I have to say the game is pretty interesting. Being able to get it in a bundle with a bunch of other games is just nifty bonus but then again, I am a sucker for indie bundles. I will probably pick up most, if not all, of the weeks to come.

The only reason I am on the fence about these bundles is I just paid $9 for Zafehouse Diaries alone. Definitely did not expect it bundled like this so close after it released/was on release sale.

That said I might get this anyways since it's crazy value and I can always try to sell off the keys for the games I already have.

I notice your game War of the Tanks is on Desura. Why not add Desura keys to this bundle?

I don't buy my games without a client attached and I don't know if all these games will get into Steam through Greenlight for a very long time if ever.

Providing Desura keys, where available, would sway me toward wanting to get this bundle. Most other Indie bundle sites do provide Desura keys when a Steam key is not available.

IndieFort is hosted by GamersGate so you will receive GamersGate keys for all games and other bonus stuff for buying an IndieFort bundle.

For the first time on IndieFort bundles, Steam keys are also offered due to popular demand where applicable.

Desura keys are provided with Desura's own Indie Royale and other neutral bundles, I don't think you'll see any Desura keys from IndieFort's anytime soon.

At least that's my opinion as an independent developer, I don't know what GamersGate and Desura are thinking.

Except that Indie Gala and Groupees also give Desura keys out and Humble Bundle has done so in the past. Those groups aren't affliated with Desura or Indie Royale.

It's no different than giving out a Steam key really and it gives buyers a key for a client they can use now instead one they may or may not get later because of Greenlight.

Oh well, another Indie Fort bundle I will be passing on.

Pure speculation on my part, but perhaps Gamersgate doesn't see themselves as being in direct competition with Steam. Steam is the Top Dog in PCDD and everybody knows it. Most everybody else is just shooting for #2 (except Origin). Maybe they feel that if they give out keys for Desura, they'll be helping a service that is competing with them for the #2 spot.

Well, with some games already Steamworks, Gamersgate has no choice but to sell Steam keys for some games. So adding them to this bundle is just an extension of that.

GG has been trying to build their IndieFort and bundle department, and for indie games and bundles Desura is a direct competitor so I can see why they want to avoid giving out desura keys.

Any chance of getting the Linux versions of the bundled games that have them (Caster, Orczz, WFFF, etc.)?

Or at least Desura keys in addition to or instead of Steam as an option?

Hi there, I asked the devs with Linux versions in the bundle, they said that those versions are included.

Bundle page is going to get revised soon, all these info like games that give additional keys for Linux, Steam, Greenlight, etc. will be displayed as icons for ease of use.

As for the Desura keys, I just replied the same question only 5 posts above, that's not going to happen at the moment.

Note that you do NOT get a Steam key for Caster in the current bundle, contrary to the OP. You only get a key for Hegemony Gold. You do get a key for Strategic War in Europe, but it does not appear to be a valid Steam key.

Hmmm, interesting. There seems to be a disconnect between what is stated here and what GG is actually doing. I don't think it's intentionally misleading, just probably some miscommunication or delay there.

Well, SWiE isn't a Steam game at all, as it turns out. Just Greenlight.

I do wonder why it's noted when games are on Greenlight though, as it's largely irrelevant since you don't get a key and it's not exactly an accolade regarding the game's quality or anything like that.

Well, a lot of Devs have indicated that if their game gets greenlit they will retroactively give Steam keys to any previous buyers. That doesn't always hold true and they are under no obligation to do so, but so far most have come through with their promises.

If I'm not mistaken, the OP said that this was the case here.

Surprised about the Caster key, but it's no biggie for me, as Caster has no achievements or other special Steam-related content.

SPAZ (from the first bundle) is listed as the "Indiefort Version." Anyone know what that consists of? It might just be the game and the soundtrack, but I'm not sure.
