How does that bundle work? It's hard to tell what you are getting when you "pay what you want" and what you get if you pay "what they want" (aka more than minimum).

Sounds like you have to pay $10+ to get Killing Floor? Or is that given to everyone once some "goal" is met?


You have to pay a minimum of $4 to get the games on Steam, then a minimum of $10 to get Killing Floor and whatever extras and bonuses are thrown in later. Every $2 provides a meal for a family, so it's for a good cause.

You have to log into your Groupees account to find your keys and downloads once you've purchased it.

We as a community feel that it would be best if you didn't trade on here anymore. Despite your 350 positive transactions, I'm deactivating your account on 99Gamers because you offend me. I'm unrelatable, give poor customer service, and am now taking away your invested time and money because I don't like you.

Best,
Brandon, Owner of 99Gamers.com

Eventually found the text that made that more clear. Thanks.

I'll pass since I already own 3/5 of those games. Good bundle if you don't have them though.

Damn, out of keys already. Wanted to give this game a try before I consider buying it. Hopefully more keys get added.

Also saw I already own all of the games in that Steam Indie Bundle except for Tiny Bang Story.

Sounds.... kind of interesting. But 14.99 is too rich for my cheap blood :P

It's probably both. They seem to be having issues rolling out the sales today.

Hopefully, the Holland with Love pack is not a bad deal, but I already own all but 2 of the games.

I really want the other Indie pack because it has Machinarium and I've heard wonders for that game.

Steam was the one who started the indie bundle thing.

I already own two of the games, so probably won't get it.

Edit: and the Holland With Love pack I own 4 of those games.

It wasn't much of a prediction since they posted and then pulled the listing on their news page. :)

I was hoping for cheaper than $9.99, but I guess 75% off is to be expected. Mostly just want Jolly Roger. At least extra copies are giftable so I still have a reason to pick it up. I'll decide on Thursday.

Hmm, it does say that if you own a game they will give you a giftable copy so there's that, but these indie bundle games are all over the place and aren't worth much really.

With both of these there's a couple of games I would want in them but the bulk of the pack I already own. :-/

The more I think about it, the more it seems to me like these games eventually go really cheap even purchased separately. I got Toki Tori and Swords and Soliders last year on the Summer Sale for $1.50 and $2.50 respectively. Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is $1.50 (and Steam Activatible) on Amazon right now etc.

Gemini Rue is cool too. I like the old school graphics/adventure with the full voice overs. The combat is a bit wonky but very infrequent. it is very simple though and slow pace. only takes a minute or two, just the throw back shooting where you use only 2 or 3 buttons took time to get used to.

So many indie bundles. I can't keep track of all of them anymore. It seems that I already have 2-3 of the games from some of the current bundles from previous bundles anyway.

Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet is now up for pre-order and is 25% off ($11.24) until release on 4/17. Unfortunately, it uses GFWL.

So getting back to Scary Girl for just a minute (don't worry, I won't rant this time :-P) it's apparently Steamworks and Amazon has it priced matched right now to the $7.99 20% off. Could be worth noting for people with Amazon credit or to just keep an eye out there for a sale on it.

Nice to see some more indie packs/bundles added to the Steam arsenal.

If anyone buys one and already owns Diamond Dan by chance, I'll be glad to take it off your hands for $1.50. ;) Let me know.

There's a bit of discussion about it over in this thread.

My thoughts:

I also started in "Hack, Slash, Loot's" tombs, which was a good way to learn the mechanics. There's a lot to be said for the simplicity here: no crafting, self-explanatory monsters and items, easy mechanics.

Don't miss that you can zoom *and* adjust the screen size. For me, the default setting was far to small to function.

It is darn hard though, and unfortunately that difficulty isn't the kind that you can easily strategize for in your next play. Between that and the largely directionless quests, I'm not sure I'll play this often, even though I like the game in theory.

Didn't care for it. Found it far too hard for my tastes. But hey, that's a roguelike.

Decided to go in on the Be Mine 2 bundle at the minimum. Already have Killing Floor and not interested in the other two items at the premium level.

Going to mull over the various Kickstarter links posted over the last couple of pages. I'm liking this trend for reviving adventure games.

Broke down and bought Legend of Grimrock, today is the last day to pre-order if you want it for 20% off, if you buy from the devs you get a steamkey. I know this game will most likely end up in an indie bundle, hell they even use the Humble Store and Humble Bundle sends you the keys but this game does look great...I paid the 11.99. I shall be dungeon crawling tomorrow night
