I have the rest of their games (avernum and geneforge saga) so I got it hopefully I can play it with an open mind. I used to play old rogue like games and those things barely had graphics haha...hope I enjoy it!

it seems kinda interesting with the choice between good and evil. you can be Romans or the other guys? wonder if there are two completely different stories.

and i got used to the graphics of the Avernum games really quickly. it's simple and old looking but it works.

Sweet! Another repeat from IR, which I skipped due to steep price.

It was also featured on IGS.. most people that wanted it already probably have it by now. The IGS deal was the best one IMO, came with GOG and Steam keys.

How much was it at the Gala store? This is good for me because I didn't start buying any indie bundles until January. I missed so much.

IGS = Indie Game Stand. It was a dollar for Steam + GOG keys. I don't think it's been featured on the Gala Store (but could be wrong).

Finished Storm in a Teacup and got all achievements within 5 hours. Somewhat short game, but it's addictive. I recommend getting it if you like platformers.. just remember to mute the music, there's only one track for the entire game so the music gets repetitive fast..


You weren't kidding about the music. It's a two and a half minute clip that gets looped endlessly. It's pleasant enough, but I wouldn't even want to hear my favorite song endlessly looped.

As for the game itself, I'm having a heck of a time with the controls. It's just too floaty for me. It's like playing a racing game where all the tracks are made out of ice. It's a real bitch to try to make stops or change your direction. I suppose that's how something floating off the ground would handle, but I could do with a little less realism in that respect.

I guess if I play it long enough, I'd get used to it. But after playing for about 20 minutes, it seems like almost all of the difficulty in the game comes from the way the character moves.

EDIT: Yeah, it did get a little bit easier to handle after playing a bit. I've got about an hour and a half of play at this point, and I'm about 40% through the challenges. The game would probably be too easy if it controlled like a normal platformer.

Well you only need to buy one game right now. So that should solve that problem for you.

Did this happen today? I think I checked yesterday or the day before and you still needed two. Either way thanks I picked it up.

They periodically have special periods during the Build-A-Bundles where you only need to buy one game. Most times they do it for a day halfway though the bundle, then they usually also do this for the final 12-15 hours of a bundle. So in the future, if you're just interested in one game, wait for the one game minimum special.

I haven't been keeping up with the Groupees chat much, but that seems possible. I know they've got a "retro" themed bundle planned, along with another greenlight bundle.. I'm just not sure when exactly they'll launch.

Another Build a Greenlight bundle? Their first was amazing, one of the best bundles IMHO, all fresh games

They have a lot of bundles planned for this month so I think this Wednesday or Thursday is a good guess.

Next site for the bundle is up
It is a "retro" bundle.
These are the clues that Shifty has dropped in chat about the games:

+ All indie games in this one
+ Games included are made in a 8-bit style
+ Games included are Steam, Desura and DRM-Free and for Windows, Mac, Linux (not all are multiplatform though)
+ Some games are on Greenlight as well, which means free steam keys
+ Bundle will start within 24 hours
+ None of the games have been in our bundle before, and i believe only one has been in a bundle at all before

My guess for the previously bundled game is "LaserCat". It fits the cat hint from the Build a Bundle 5 page that was meant for the retro bundle.

Great little platformer, loved it (though a bit short).

Video is up, games and price were announced. Maybe the cat hint wasn't for this bundle, or it wasn't a hint at all? lol

$3 for:

- Forceline
- Dead Pixels
- 8-Bit Commando
- Smooth Operators
- Bleed
- Anodyne

With links to their Desura pages, since I hadn't heard of some of these:


I'll probably get this to add to my indie backlog (and now regret buying Anodyne from the Humble store, even if it was for a buck...)
