I already have Escape Goat courtesy of the Indie Royale June Bug Bundle. But I look forward to future offers.

Here's hoping that they eventually do Project Zomboid.

I think I'll grab this. I liked the Soulcaster games, but passed on the Indie Royale bundle that Escape Goat was in. Should be cool to have something new offered up every 4 days.

Thanks, OP!

Escape Goat is the lick -- great game. It even has a PC-exclusive bonus campaign that's hard as sweet Fuck.

Are these Indie Game bundles breeding.
Is it something the government might need to be concerned about.

My problem was this hoarder took all of them including my one copy as I helped her.

Looks like it is also available on Xbox Live Indie Games for $1.
Is it the exact same game?

Escape Goat is fantastic except for that PC exclusive campaign which is stupid hard.

Indie games are mostly terrible but getting a dozen at a time for $5 or whatever the Indie Bundle of the Week might be is still a good deal. No complaints here.

Yes, it is. It came out on XBL over a year ago.

According to the game's site:

  • Over 50 rooms in the main campaign.
  • Bonus campaign with 50 more rooms of intense platforming and puzzling. Not for the faint of heart! (PC Exclusive)
  • Control with the keyboard (fully mappable) or Xbox 360 controller.
  • Built-in level editor: Create your own world with up to 200 rooms, and share with your friends
So at least the bonus campaign (which apparently is really hard) is PC-only.

So I was looking at this, even though I already have SpaceChem, and I noticed that if you pay $10, you get Escape Goat, SpaceChem, and the next game. Not that amazing of a deal now, but if they continue this trend (of having 3 games centered on the current one for $10), it might end up being a good deal if you miss one that you really want.

There shouldn't be anyone on this forum who doesn't have EG or SpaceChem. They are both outstanding games. EG isn't even annoying hard until the extra campaign.

SpaceChem is an engineer's/programmer's puzzler and extraordinarily difficult but it challenges you in ways no game has before. It's worth what they're asking in a heartbeat.

I'm not sure if that game is boring or if I'm just not smart enough. :(

SpaceChem is the best game ever and anyone who likes some dumb thing about goats more is a poophead.

Is it fun? Anyone put in a bit of time in the game? I wasn't entirely convinced by the gameplay video they had.

Well, folks over at Desura seem to be liking it - make of that what you will...

From what I've seen, Gnomoria is similar to Dwarf Fortress, but with actual graphics and less complex. Dwarf Fortress is something like a Sim DwarfCity, or maybe an extremely deep version of Minecraft where you tell dwarves to do the digging and building for you.

Not sure if I'll get this, since it'll probably sit in my backlog (esp if it's not on Steam), and I've been meaning to learn how to play Dwarf Fortress itself someday...

This NeoGAF thread has a good summary:

Call me racist but I don't like dwarves. I do however like building stuff so I'm gonna give it a shot.

Fuck this is a strange post.



Oh, and there is an option in the My Games section to vote for the game in Steam Greenlight. Can I hope that if it gets greenlit that we'd get Steam keys too?

According to thee greenlight page, yes.


"UPDATE
I've been getting a lot of emails asking if you will receive a Steam key if you purchase the game before being available on Steam. I'm almost positive that the answer is yes. I haven't seen a statement from Valve, but I know games have done this before and I expect to be able to give out Steam keys if Gnomoria is available on Steam in the future."

Good to hear. I believe McPixel did it? Desura is fine in my book but I'd like a Steam copy as well. :)

I went to school with the guy that is making Gnomoria. Cool dude, I'll be grabbing this.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.
