Has hipster become a catch-all term for "things young people might possibly like?"

Because I don't think I would describe McPixel as "hipster humor," whatever that could possibly mean.

Looks like Anodyne is #99 on the greenlight list. Anyone know where this list is kept? Or is it for the devs only?

Somewhat self-promoting here. I received an invite to the closed beta of Operation Smash, which is a Metroidvania style platformer scheduled to come out in the near future on PC/Mac/Linux. What I've seen of the game looks very polished, and the soundtrack has been extremely enjoyable. Anyway, long story short I'll be streaming my first play of the game around 9:30 Eastern (1 hour from posting) on my Twitch channel here:

Operation Smash is on Steam Greenlight along with a trailer for those who may be interested.

Edit: Make that 9:45

This is actually the plot to an upcoming film in which I've taken the script for Ocean's Eleven and replaced every mention of money with the words "greenlight list" and all of the character names with regulars from this thread.

Anodyne, which is a retro zelda style indie RPG, is running a promotion where you can get it for $1 on its site via the Humble Store.

http://www.anodynegame.com/

The developer has promised Steam keys to existing owners if it gets Greenlit (Greenlight page here).

*Edit: apparently buying it just straight up gives the Desura keys now, or so I'm told.

-----

Also if you contact him @ anodynegame@gmail.com with proof of purchase you can request a copy of it on Desura.

I bought it for $1 this morning, forwarded a copy of the confirmation for that and had a Desura copy of the game gifted to me within a few hours.

It's actually technically TPB promo so you can apparently just (officially) torrent it, but I'm assuming if you want the Desura (and potentially Steam) keys you'd have to at least pay something. Anyway, I chipped in a buck and had no problem getting it for Desura when I requested it.

http://www.anodynegame.com/tpb.html

The promo ends @ 5am CST on 2/18 so should last through the weekend.

That last link does mention a bundle with Desura keys and the soundtrack coming "soon" so if you really don't want to fuss with making a request for a Desura copy of the game you can probably just check back later for that.


HOLY HELLS BELLS> the trailer sold me. looks so cool. thanks for bringing this to my attention. How has this escaped my wide swath of the internet. I'm so good at trying to keep up.

Regarding the current Groupees Bemine Aniversary bundle, here is my thought process:

1. Wow 11 games + musics for $5? Great!
2. (3 seconds later) Wait a minute! You never listen to the musics included on those bundles, remember?
3. (Checked out iBomber's page) Oh, a tower defense game ...
4. (Checked out Eschalon Book II) Isometric RPG with, ummm, what's that new word? Hipster graphics?
5. (Livalink) Indie/One man band FPS, well ...
6. (Party of Sin) 7 guys to swap around, 4 more than Trine. More is better, right? Right? ...
7. (Major Mayhem) Not bad looking iOS/Android arcade-style game port? Could be fun.
8. (Dungeons: the Dark Lord) Mixed reviews. Not Dungeon Keeper, they said.
9. (Men of War: Squad Assault) Ah, now more like it. Reputed to be very hard game though.
10. (Two Worlds II) The main attraction in the bundle. Not Velvet Edition, though. Work with a controller, great!
11. (Edna & Harvey) Never can say no to a wacky adventure game. Charming graphic style.
12. (Planets Under Attack) Cool looking strategy game. May need to search for review/download demo ... Wait, controller support? Yesssssss.
13. (Mystery Game) Must be Skyram!
14. (Looking at backlog) *head hanging down with shame face*
15. But it is $5 only!!!!
16. Goto 14.

So, right now I am in this loop. Can someone please help me make a decision? Please?

It's the best bundle in a couple months. It's not just that we'll all lose respect for you, but we're obliged to report this to Cheapy. You might get your CAG card suspended and be forced to buy all your games at GameStop full MSRP.

There is no inherent shame in having large game collection (played or not). Do we shun people with large book collections? Who have a lot of movies? Who have a lot of music?

My problem is I have massive physical game collection, digital game collection, book collection, music collection, etc...

There will also be the regret when others are playing Two Worlds II and you are having to scour the Steam Trade thread to try to find a copy only to find the cheapest copy will cost you skyramz n all DLC.

Pat, it's roughly the same price as an expensive cup of coffee or a drive-thru meal and the bundle will flow through your bowels much more slowly. And enjoyably.

For $60, you'll still be even if they're going for $30 each. You can actually get one for below $50 if you're fast, persistent and lucky... I figure getting them for 60%+ off is low enough that even if they drop in price, they're not likely to go under 66% any time soon.

I just need to play them right away so I feel like I got in ahead of the curve :D

Weird, today's steam updates are making Steam forget. It thinks I don't have Giana installed (played it last night, files are still there), and a 60+ other games. I said fine install Giana, and it said woah, trippy, there are files here, so it light up another and took it's damn time to cheak all my Giana files it forgot about. I hope I don't have to do this for the other 60_ games...

the term "activates on" is another way of saying DRM. i know i know. but it feels SO good. gotta hand it to gog for the TOTALLY drm free stuff. I love taking my files and installing them here, there, everywhere. laptop desktop. etc. its great. counterpoint, i suppose you can do this with steam if you have an internet connection.
