Sweet. Buy your own cheap smugness. Shame none of those are particularly interesting, but they aren't bad either.

Assuming, it's like the first two, then yes. Can't see a reason why this bundle wouldn't produce a steam code for you.

I support the Indy Bundles so I'll donate even though I own Trine already. The other games are unknown to me so I'm hoping I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Do Trine and Shadowgrounds support the X360 gamepad? I remember that the reason I passed on Trine before was because pad support wasn't in the demo and I didn't trust that it'd work in the final and KB+M was too unwieldy. Shadowgrounds look like Robotron, so shouldn't it use sticks?

I'm in. Unfortunately, I missed the second bundle but I will get this even if I never play the games. I like to help out these indie developers.

Trine (for Steam at least) has Xbox 360 gamepad support.

Nice. I'll be getting this and adding it to my hubby's Steam account. I already have Trine, so now we'll be able to play co-op together. Shadowgrounds is more his thing, while Splot is more mine. Jack Claw looks interesting.

I'll be buying this purely for Trine and Jack Claw.

I read on a couple of forums that Jack Claw was abandoned, so I believe it's only a tech demo. Looks cool though.

keep an eye out, last year ppl who donated more than a certain amount received the previous year's humble bundle as well (I was one of them). so there may be a chance of that happening again.

they only started that promotion a few weeks or so into the sale i think...

Arg, of course I already own the first 3 on Steam. Good pack though, Trine is well worth donating ~$5 to alone, and the rest are a nice bonus (the Shadowgrounds games are pretty decent top-down shooters, kinda like Killzone Liberation for a modern comparison).

Haven't even heard of the latter two games though...but I guess I'll donate a few bucks to the pack and check them out.

The Shadowgrounds games are great. Keep in mind that while they do have co-op, it's not online co-op. Same with Trine.

Awesome! I love the humble bundles. I've only played/heard of Trine but I'll definitely throw down some $ for this pack.

I believe everyone got both bundles, I donated $20 for me and $1 for a gift copy and both received the previous version as well. Sadly my friend never touched the games, what a shame.

Same thing happened to me. I bought a second bundle and gifted it to my dad who never played them. At least they got some extra money.

I haven't really played any of the games i've gotten in the last two bundles, so I guess I'll skip this one. Plus I already have Trine (and haven't really played it). The games have been fine, but I guess I just don't game on my Mac much. I'd rather play games on my 360, Wii and iPhone/iPad. Probably if I had a laptop it would be different, but I don't.

i never understood why this bundle makes people jizz. i mean yeah its a good deal but the way people talk about it youd think it was a pay what you want for any 5 games new and sealed at gamestop.

I think people get excited because these bundles represent a future where we might not need GameStop.

Awesome! I screwed up and missed the second bundle, so no way am I waiting until the last minute on this one!

I love how it's even painless to pay, with Paypal or Amazon or Google!

I already bought Trine from Gamestop, but...hmm...I think I'll pay at least $30 this time...maybe more, I can't decide, since I do want to support the EFF...

Jack Claw and Splot look potentially interesting too...
