I'll PM you to compare links if you let me know which direct downloads you have. I already have all this stuff so not like I am going to swipe anyone else's.

I'm pretty sure Gala just has one dropbox account though and not that they are generating unique urls for everyone or anything like that. I know the developer of Smooth Operators mentioned he noticed a huge jump in his game being pirated after Gala put it as a DRM free direct download via dropbox in one of their bundles. He made a special edition of the game just for Gala and that was the version being pirated.

Ya that sucks. It's pretty sad people still pirate games, especially from a freakin Indie Bundle when the games are already cheap as crap.

Was there a bundle with one of the Edna&Harvey games?

I remember seeing it in an email, but I never saw the bundle go live.


Its in the current Indie Gala Colossus bundle...

This bundle was up on and off for a few weeks:

The Cargo Bundle $0.99
1 x Airline Tycoon Deluxe
1 x Edna & Harvey - The Breakout

I don't see it as available anymore but it's been back a couple of times already - just keep checking...

You mean Groupees, and that's the second game, not the first one

Yeah, after picking up Rockin' Dead I'm sitting on all of them, too.

As to pirated versions of Smooth Operators, are they seeing the dropbox links being spread around? Or are they seeing the files that were on those links being spread around? I do know that GoG games are pretty popular in such circles. I'd expect DRM-free files from any source to be the same.

From what the dev posted, it sounded like torrents of the version made specifically for iGala, hosted on Dropbox.

There will be no more happy hours. Not sure if they meant that just for the current bundle, or future bundles as well.

Thanks Indie Gala for the happy hours. Unless they have some spectacular titles in their bundles going forward, i'll likely pass on all of these. THe majority (90%) of my IG purchases have been from happy hour.

Looking at that twitter link, I really think they meant no more happy hours for Colossus.

FYI, an "IG Swear" means I won't do this again for the next half-hour (so it's less binding than a pinky swear with no legal arbitration).

There was some rumblings in the Groupees chat room about supposedly developers and publishers being upset about the super cheap happy hour pricing or some such. I searched around and couldn't find a source though other than Gala's vague 'This is the last happy hour' twitter which they then went and contradicted by doing another one.

I don't know if there is something to this whole thing or if it's just Gala being Gala and people trying to speculate reasons to make sense of their behavior.

I wouldnt be surprised. Even though they sell a lot of bundles and keeps the so called 'average price' high, the devs/publishers must be taking a bit of a hit watching all the free gift bundles (we have no idea how many but imagine its quite a few considering buyers in first week get like x 3 (cant remember exactly how many)for BTA during happy hours) go out the door (i know tiny priced games but still it adds up)

I wonder if they know you can pay 1 penny to get DRM free games in the Humble Bundle, and $1 for the Steam keys, beats any Happy Hour discounts. Or I'm just wrong for bringing up Humble Bundle in Indie Gala thread? Sorry

I think the penny Humble and Indie Gamestand and whoever else does true PWYW sort flies under the radar because they aren't keys that are traded/sold/hoarded etc. Those are almost akin to sanctioned file sharing whereas the keys in some sense have more value. The cheap Steam keys could potentially take people away from buying the game on Steam or elsewhere.

It's true though the Humble and Groupees and even Gala themselves in the Gala store have some cheap bottom tier $1 steam keys even outside of happy hour.

So the developer of Smooth Operators, that was in Indie Gala 9, told Gala a couple of weeks back that he wanted to give all the Gala 9 purchasers a Desura copy of the game now that it is on Desura. Gala said they would get back to him. He seemed to think they didn't want to do it right then so as to not distract from their then current bundle (Colossus) and maybe after the bundle is done they would do it. Well the bundle is done. We'll see if it happens...

http://heydeckgames....ators/#comments

Hey. I’ve talked a bit with the guys at IndieGala and said i wanted to give you a desura key instead of you guys downloading from them. They’re gonna get back to me how we do this. I think they dont want to shift focus away from their current bundle so this is likely to happen when this bundle is over.
