Some info from a chat with Jonny:

5:31 PM
Me: I was just wondering if there's an ETA on the mystery game's reveal? I've scanned the chat and can't find if it's been answered yet.

5:31 PM
Jonny: we'll announce in about 12 hrs

5:31 PM
Me: Alright, thanks. :)

5:31 PM
Jonny: any predictions?

5:32 PM
Me: I'd probably guess either Postal 3 or the full Guns of Icarus Online. Who knows though.

5:33 PM
Jonny: good guesses

you'll know soon

I played Zero Gear during a free weekend (shortly after its release) and I though it was terrible. So I bought this bundle primarily to give it another try and, well, I still think it's terrible. A dollar well spent!

There's a 99.99999% chance it's Dwarfs?!

Just kidding, but seriously, it's looking very likely that it's Dwarfs?! They had a reddit contest and all of the hints point toward it.

New little bundle is up if anyone is interested.

http://groupees.com/taproot

I used to like Taproot's stuff. They're kind of that 90s garage band-y grunge-screamo-alternative that was all over the place back then, but they aren't bad. It's three albums + more (if goals are hit) for a buck, and each dollar is a meal for the hungry.

Nice little bundle for a good cause.

I'm new to the whole Steam thing. I figured I would get in on this for a buck to try things out. My PC isn't great, but hopefully it works OK for basic games. Intel dual core with 2gb of ram.

Just plop in an affordable graphics card that your power supply can handle and you should be fine. My old rig was a standard P4 Dell with a 9800 GT and I played everything.

Basic games, sure. Add a GPU and play everything at reduced detail.

Wel, it *is* Dwarfs!? after all (Steam key).

I'll give them $5 (not that I'll ever get around to playing it) mostly because they are so clueless: who in their right mind would leave the game that people would most want out of the bundle and the one that would bring in the most profits two thirds of the way into the sale? They should have had this up right at the beginning.

I have been thinking about it. I just don't know which card I would get. I replaced the board and processor back in Dec 2010. Here is the board I have http://www.msi.com/p.../G41TM-E43.html I don't recall the processor exactly. I just know it's a intel dual core. I have 2gb of DDR2. My stock power supply says it has 250watts max output. I'm sure I would need to change that? What would be a good, but decent priced video card that I can use?

Now I have a copy of Dwarfs I don't need that I spent an additional 4 dollars to obtain. :(

Anyone wanna buy it for $2?


PMd I'm not going to spend the extra 4 just to get it and either going to buy it from someone cheapr or going to wait for it to go on sale on steam for 75% off.

I just bought within the last 10 minutes or so. Kaptain Brawe's on my download page, but there's no key listed, sadly. Ah well. Dwarfs!? and other odds and ends for 5 bucks isn't bad at all.

Vaguely related note, I may bite on that Taproot bundle because it DOESN'T include their newest album... which is them attempting a concept album and ruining it with Speak and Spell.

Well I am actually interested in Dwarfs, but it can be had for $2.50 during a major sale. If there was a DRM-free copy in addition to the steam key, I'd probably bite. But for $4, I'll have to think about it. I guess it would mean a little bit more to charity, but what are we talking about really? An extra $0.80 (I believe they give 20% to charity)?

Getting a 404 error. Guess they've run out of codes. Unless the gift bundles include Dwarfs, it's no big deal that I missed it. Was just gonna grab a second copy for my secondary account.

EDIT: Now the page is back up with a note that the promo is over.

You do realize that a lot bundles have a mystery game that ends up being more desirable than the other games, right? It's not exactly a new concept.

Actually, I don't think that's true: successful bundles have their biggest titles up first so that
people will pay "over the average" or whatever right away to get the hits (e.g. with Bastion
in the last HIB). Groupees were essentially saying "pay $1 to get all these games, or pay $5
for a great game but we won't tell you what it is until a week has passed". That's a moronic
way of doing things - most people will just pay $1 and then wait until the "great game" is
revealed at which point I'm guessing many couldn't even be bothered to go and up their
donation to get one extra game (CAGers excepted, of course).

Basically, what I'm saying is if one game is worth $4 more than the rest of the games
combined, it should be available right at the beginning so that people will buy the bundle
for $5 now instead of bying it for $1 now and *maybe* adding $4 more later. Bonus games
should be just that: an extra incentive to tip those who are still humming & hawing about
buying the bundle, they shouldn't be the main attraction.

I get your point, but the HIB is probably the smartest indie bundle around. It's hard to hold every bundler to their way of going about things, because they've got the smartest method.

That said, I don't even think Dwarfs is that big of a deal. It will be on sale for under $3 very soon, so it's hard to say it's easily worth $4.
