The Topware bundle is, in my opinion, almost entirely trash.

The Alpha Bundle intrigues me, but I have a few questions.

1) This is full ownership over these games, not just an alpha purchase, right?
2) Any thoughts on Realm Explorer?

Looks like a prettier version of Minecraft with a few additional aspects, which isn't a bad thing by any means.


Yes, it's full ownership of the games since you get Desura keys which will allow you to download all future updates from Desura.

I like the topware bundle. Already have Earth 2160 on GMG and Steam, but will get 2140, 2150 and 2160 on GOG just to get the complete series. Same with JA Wildfire. It's the one I'm missing to get my JA2 collection complete on Steam.

I'm also looking at Pirates of Black Cove. The game looks nice

Is there any reason to have ALL of the Earth games if I'm not a big strategy gamer? Or is there one that is generally better than the others? Also, does anyone know how the Panzer Claws game is?

La-Mulana Steam keys should be going out today.

Hey guys,

People should be getting the codes today. I just received them myself and am passing them on to the proper parties (our playism coders, groupees, and desura).

I will hop in here again when the PLAYISM keys actually go out!

From the GoG Page:

The Trilogy includes the original Earth 2140 campaign along with Mission Pack 1 and Final Conflict Mission Pack

The Trilogy includes the original Earth 2150 campaign along with both expansions: The Moon Project and Lost Souls

So it seems 2140 and 50 have the expansions

I was wondering the same thing about Panzer Claws. It's a game that's over 10 years old that seems to be in the same genre as a game like Blitzkrieg or the Men of War games. The really old reviews I found on IGN, GameSpot, and Strategy Informer seem to indicate it's a decent game (although not particularly unique), but I wonder how outdated it is.

Apparently, there is a demo, but I haven't tried it yet: http://www.fileplane...Claws-Demo-(US)


I think I'm more interested in the bonus game, Knights & Merchants, than any of the other ones. I'd think about picking up Pirates of the Black Cove if it redeemed on Steam, but I'd rather not deal with yet another site if I can avoid it. As is, I think I'll wait for a "buy one game only" period and go with Panzer Claws, if only to get the bonus game.

Topware bundle just hit the first (and previously only) goal and they've added a new bonus: World War 3: Black Gold. Unlocks @ 2,500 bundles sold.

Is the Gold edition really that much better?

I find that IGN is full of crap nine times out of ten.

I am a bit annoyed that the game is ONLY redeemable on Topware's site, though.

IGN may be full of crap, but if even IGN gives a game a bad score then you know it's a crap game (and this one *is* crap by all acounts - just watch the GS review for one)

Also, it has some kind of DRM, it need online activation. Nevertheless, Im enjoying the game and it doesnt need to be online.

Topware Bundle is doing a one game minimum special right now. No announcements about it on the chat, but I'd guess it will last until the end of the bundle. Which is a little bit over 21 hours at the moment.

EDIT: Looks like they've lowered the unlock point for the first goal in the Alpha Bundle. It was 1,500, now it's 1,275. They're 18 bundles away from hitting that mark. So we probably will get there and we'll at least get a look at what the second bonus might be.

EDIT #2: Through the magic of lowered expectations, they've hit the first bonus and revealed the second bonus. Bonus #2 is another Alpha game called Dungeon Prospector. It appears to be a rouge-like. it unlocks at 1,300, which is only 13 bundles away as I type this.

Spoderman guessed the bird one, it'a crow. He also showed me groupees green light bundle page on steam, I would have to imagine that some of the games they have on there will be in this.

I haven't been looking at the chat but..

The "BIRD" hint is for Crow, and "You have no memories... You don't know who you are" is for Grimind. That's 2 out of 4.

and.. their greenlight collection page (might help with identifying other games based on hints): http://steamcommunit...s/?id=101693295

EDIT: The STALKER hint is probably for Gravi.. so that's 3 out of 4 guessed, 1 more to go ;)

EDIT 2: Not 100% sure about this, but the final game (sandbox hint) seems like it'll be Darkout. There, all guessed!

So.. to restate

"BIRD": Crow
"You have no memories... You don't know who you are": Grimind
STALKER: Gravi
Sandbox: Darkout

So I ended up getting a few games in the Topware bundle, and I'm wondering about this Topware DRM. I redeemed the key for the bonus game, WW3: Black Gold, but I can't see a way to link the code or the game to my account on their site. Anyone have any luck with that, or did they seriously just give away keys that could be used by anyone?

Probably the latter. I don't think Topware or Zuxxez (sp?) actually do much in the way of direct game sales, so they probably don't really have site architecture in place to have user accounts with games attached. I couldn't attest to this directly because I haven't really bothered to use any of the Topware keys (mostly interested in the Gog ones).

I don't believe the Topware keys can be linked to an account, what warreni is saying is true. They're useless to me, I don't trust the Topware store for downloads. I think Groupees should've stuck with DRM-free versions hosted on your Groupees download page rather than given Topware keys..

Fair enough. I wonder if there's any difference between the Topware key to, say, the WW2 game and the DRM free download that Groupees offers.

I downloaded K&M:TPR from Groupees and Topware and they're the same (the file names are identical).

The filenames are also the same for JA2:WF as well, so I think they're also the same.

The WW2 game only has a Topware key on my Groupees page, no Groupees DRM-free download.

Not sure if this is intentional, but my Topware key for JA2:WF gives me *two* downloads on the Topware site: one for JA2:WF and another for JA2 itself. Could be a mistake so you may want to download the Topware files before this gets fixed.

Also, new hint given. "teeth". Probably Enamel.

EDIT: Another hint. "LRS". Has to be Little Racers Street.

EDIT 2: And another hint.. "harsh measures". I'm thinking it might be Stranded Deep, not sure though. Draconian Wars may be more likely
