From the video most didn't really look like action or rpg, at least not what comes to my mind. Then again, I've seen action as sort of a catch-all

For those that want a quick list:

2 games for $1.50 minimum. Very odd selections, but I will get at least Pickers and maybe They Breathe and Aztaka.


Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

Most of them aren't repeats for me. I skipped Vox on IGS because I knew it was coming to Groupees (was a recent addition to their greenlight collection page at the time), and I skipped the IR with They Breathe in it.. I only have 2 of the games from this bundle (Aztaka and Time Gentlemen Please/Ben There Dan That), which is pretty good compared to the new IR lol.

Definitely in for Rune.  Might wait to see if there's a $0.75 day.

I say this half-jokingly, but here's the CAG definition of a great vs awful bundle (and I'm not just talking about Groupees):

 

"I already own 80% of the games in the bundle" - it sux!

 

"I only own 20% of the games in the bundle" - it rox!

 

The quality of the games seems to matter less than one would think.

As the arbiter of good taste I will make the final decisions:

 

Vox - Crappier version of Cube World

Crappy games from Gun Monkey devs - Crap

They Breathe - Crappy Aquaria ripoff

Aztaka - Crap

Reef Shot - Crap

Pickers - Where's Mike and Frank and Danielle?

Rune Classic - YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAH

When the CAG saw the breadth of his indie collection he wept, for there were no more bundles left to conquer.

Mooby is the Indie Gamer God. He knows everything about indie games. In fact, the next Indie Royale will be called The Indie Gamer God bundle, it'll have games handpicked by him.

FWIW, I played through and beat Pickers in one sitting and had a blast. I am a big fan of the American Pickers TV show so I may be slightly biased, but I found the haggling/selling aspect to be a unique addition to the hidden object genre.

 

I also have no idea why they'd classify it as an adventure or RPG. It's a hidden object game with some additional features.

I'll rep for Ben There Dan That. Don't know about the rest, though I have Aztaka from another bundle. Man, Rune is OLD, I remember back when that came out.

Hmmm, might break the cardinal rule and double dip for Pickers on Steam.  Awesome game.  Have it on Amazon, but only paid 2.99 for it so another .75 isn't crazy... is it?

I think it's crazy that you paid $2.99 for it (being all hardcore-CAG and all).

Not only did he pay $2.99 for it, I'm pretty sure he announced he did so at the time.

It's all relative.  MSRP for Pickers on Steam is $9.99 and they sell the disc version at Target for a ridiculous $19.99, so $2.99 or $1.99 casual games are usually around the sweet spot, though I prefer $1 per casual game when they put out those $20  collections with $20 games.

Aztaka is terrible. Terrible animation, terrible platforming mechanics, terrible combat, terrible bugs, terrible terrible terrible.

 

I was super excited to try it out when I got it (both on IGS and in a MacApps bundle), and I couldn't force myself to play it longer than an hour or two. It's just awful. The level art is passable, while the characters and enemies look like they were plucked from Baldur's Gate (or some equally old isometric RPG with "3D" characters), blown up, and forced onto a 2D plane. It just doesn't work.

 

The story is boring as hell too, and I enjoy anything related to mythology. It's just a total flop on every level.

 

tl;dr, If you don't have Aztaka for some reason, DON'T BUY IT NOW.

From playing the demo.  I agree.  I likened it to crappy '90s shareware.

I'm never buying a bundle right as the bundle goes live again. Next time I'll wait at least 30 minutes. Groupees bugged out and didn't give me the bundle after paying via paypal (payment showed "completed" on my paypal account), so I had to talk to Shifty via their support tab to get it added.
