Weird Worlds is a classic! That alone is worth the price! The rest are just bonus!

Just wished Infinite Space was on sale too.

I may be missing something, but if you mean STRANGE ADVENTURES IN INFINITE SPACE (you have to say it in caps, along with a space echo effect...) it's been free for a while now:

Direct download:

In fact, they have a bunch of older free games (a couple are pretty decent):

Picked this up for Weird Worlds alone. I'll eventually try Containment and DJ.

With all of these Indie bundles, I now have a growing backlog of music as well.

Good bundle to me. Had dungeon defenders but other games are cool. I esp love the Weird Worlds....I can't tell you how times I spent playing Return to Infinite Space or whatever the prequel was called. It played quickly when I didn't have enough time for a bigger game.

Containment is the only game that I want from this one and I already have Dungeon Defenders... I think I may pass!

..unless someone already has Containment and gets this bundle... : P


I'm in the same boat.

I guess they added a few new bonuses yesterday. Quoting from Indie Royale's twitter

Indie Royale ‏ @indieroyale

More new Bonuses! All May Hurray buyers get the "Dungeon Defenders" soundtrack and Digital Eel's column-stacking game "Big Box of Blox"



I think it's pretty obvious at this point that there wont be any Dungeon Defenders DLC added as bonuses.

Had a quick play of Brainpipe last night, but didn't feel particularly wowed by it. Will give it another chance soon so tee if it can keep itself out of the "Trashcan" subfolder.

Also had a dabble with Containment. S'alright. Not great, but s'alright.

Looking forward to having a dabble with Weird Worlds tonight though, that looks like it's right up my street.

I was able to gift DD to a friend which makes this bundle massively worthwhile to me. Overall it's definitely been one of the stronger ones.

This one snuck up on me. At least it didn't happen this afternoon. I have a busy day and may not have seen it for many hours.

edit: Oh, and the Bundle in a Box Adventure Bundle launches on May 23rd. They accidentally leaked some details on that one a few weeks ago. I think I posted them in the Steam thread.

Was it The Shivah? That's the only one that really interested me and I already have Osmos so as much as I want to support charity this will get a pass from me.

I remember hearing Jusin McElroy talk about it on a podcast a while back saying he enjoyed it but it was a bit non traditional. This is the info from Wikipedia. I guess its a Spiritual Precursor to the Blackwell Trilogy but I haven't played either so I'm not sure how much it correlates.

From Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia....wiki/The_Shivah


Gameplay
A point-and-click adventure game, in The Shivah players assume the role of Rabbi Russell Stone, who is visited by the police and informed that a murdered ex-member of his dilapidated New York synagogue has bequeathed him a large sum of money. Puzzled that a man with whom he had fallen out many years before had given him money, Rabbi Stone sets out to clear his name and investigate the murder. This aspect of the game follows the "cleric as private investigator" theme of the Father Dowling mysteries.
Rabbi Stone begins by paying a Shivah visit to the widow of the murdered man and slowly uncovers a conspiracy and discovers who was behind the now multiple murders. The game also features a scene where two Rabbis fight with words, similar to the insult swordfighting of The Secret of Monkey Island. The Shivah's unique use of a Rabbi as protagonist and exploration of Jewish themes has garnered the game press[2][3] and reviews.[4][5][6][7][8][9]

Reception
Awards
In the AGS Awards for games from 2006, The Shivah won Best Dialogue writing[10] and Dave won the Lifetime Achievement Award. The Shivah came 2nd in Game Tunnel's Sound award for 2006[11] and 3rd in their Adventure/Quest Game of the Year awards.[12]


Future
A number of characters and names from the game have appeared in The Blackwell Legacy and its sequel.
Gilbert has stated that he is planning to release at least two sequels to The Shivah, but they are going to be made after the Blackwell series is completed.

That makes the game sound even better. On the one hand it is $4.99 on Desura, so it would still be cheaper on this bundle and it goes to charity. On the other hand, it might eventually go on sale on Desura and the money would go to the developer and help them develop the planned sequels.

Blueberry looks like a short pointless sort of game I would never really play more than once.

BUTTON requires multiple people/controllers attached to a computer and physical interaction. Doesn't look like something I would ever play either.

I might just wait on some sort of Desura sale for The Shivah.

I agree with you on all counts, although personally I don't mind tossing them 4 bucks for this one.

IR has had some great headliners lately (Hard Reset, Defense Grid, Dungeon Defenders) but this is a pretty weak bundle unfortunately.
