Beat the average.
The Humble Bundle actually uses an average that fluctuates.
Indie Royale has a reverse average that actually goes up as people pay less.
Groupees has a fixed top tier like Gala.


Groupees doesn't have a BTA, it's just seperate tiers. Gala does have a BTA, and it does fluctuate, but it usually takes a while to change.

Wow, glad I passed on Deponia during the winter sale. That, Cities in Motion and Painkiller make this bundle. Already have Trine and Magicka. Is there a happy hour?

Do Gala's BTA usually go up or down?

I bought Deponia over the winter sale and don't really regret it. I still have everything else in this pack already anyway so I would have just been getting it for Deponia. Now I will know to hold off on those Daedalic titles a bit though. :-P

The only thing I don't have in this bundle is You Are Empty but they lost my attention at DRM free.

*Edit: and I'm still kicking myself for not getting the Jagged Alliance bundle. I didn't have any of the 3 items in that package and that almost never happens.

I would say both, it can go either way really.. but for their earlier bundles they had a minimum price for the BTA. I don't think it's the same case anymore.

I think I might have to grab this if there's not going to be a happy hour on it. I'll give everybody in this thread $100 if the unlock bonuses aren't Magicka DLCs.

OK, thanks. This bundle seems too good to pass, so I went ahead and got one.

To be fair You Are Empty isn't on Steam. If you want to enjoy its 34 Metascore greatness you have to go with a DRM-free download from somewhere. (Of course, you could just wait for Amazon's 1c bundle.)

I'm with you on that Jagged Alliance bundle regret.

Usually, yeah. I think the only bundle that didn't have a happy hour was the Simulation bundle. No guarantee this one will have one though.

I don't even know if I'd want this at the happy hour price... they'd have to add something pretty appealing with the last two bonus unlocks and since it's the Magicka bundle I get the feeling it'll just be more Magicka DLC.

Around here, "DRM-free" means "not Steam" half the time. It's not a knock against DRM-free games, just that some people prefer to have their games on Steam (with the attendant DRM).

Well, in Motoki's case, he's said previously he doesn't like getting anything that doesn't come with a client (Steam or Desura, generally) because it's a pain to keep track of inventory.

To be fair You Are Empty isn't on Steam. If you want to enjoy its 34 Metascore greatness you have to go with a DRM-free download from somewhere. (Of course, you could just wait for Amazon's 1c bundle.)


Eh, why bother when you can just play Revelations 2012?

You Are Empty has 500x the originality of Rev2012, but it's still not a good game.

Alright so if you click on the info button you get this:

You have to pay at least $1 to unlock Trine!

Purchases less than $1 will receive the DRM free version of You Are Empty.

Also, to prevent abuses, we had to put few simple rules:
1) Only purchases worth at least $1 will obtain GalaPoints
2) It Will not be possible to buy gifts worth less than $1
3) Only BTA people will be qualified 'early buyer' for the Happy Hour ( if an HappyHour will be ). In a few words: Happy Hour is only for BTA people.

So I assume there will be a HH but much more limited.

Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

That's the same message as the last few bundles, so I don't think that it means anything either way.

Yeah, that's the same message they put all the time.

The only bundle without a happy hour iirc was IndieGala Sim.

Now, IGSim only sold like 1000 or 2000 copies and this one is up to 3500 already so if that is anything to take into account maybe this one will get one. But right now I am thinking maybe not? Or we'll see?

Those are the only two from this bundle that I'm interested in too (mostly Deponia). The only one I own from this is Trine. Hopefully there's a happy hour for this bundle. If there isn't, I'll just check the Steam trading thread for people selling individual keys.
