Apparently Indie Game Stand is distributing Desura keys for Data Hacker Initiation and Corruption now. Would have been nice to know they would be doing that back when the deal was running and I tried to ask about it but got no response. :roll:

Yeah, well, you'll be glad they didn't when those games show up in an Indiegala.

This was in the Debut 6 bundle, but due to IR's wacky pricing I passed. It sort of reminds me of a isometric Vanquish for some reason.

I was going to ask if anyone had tried this as I was thinking of grabbing it.  Instead I'll thank you for pointing out that I already have it.

For those of you wondering about the Android version, the dev has confirmed in the forums that BTAing only gets you the Android DEMO ("for the community to try out" aka beta test). And will not provide the full version.

 

They are definitely giving out Desura/Steam keys once the game releases in May though. It looks neat, but unless you really want the wallpapers, there's no sense in BTAing (it's $1.30 atm) for a mobile demo.

 

Here's the quote:

 

The Android demo is just an experimental build that we wanted to share with our community, but it's not a full game, and will not be upgraded to a full version.

 

 

I think it looks neat, so I put in the $1.00. Maybe they'll include the wallpapers anyways in the full-release.

Eh I BTA anyway (was $1.19 at the point I got it so I paid $1.20). I know it's unCAGly of me but it wasn't much more and I figured I might muck around with the demo/beta on my tablet for a bit.

Cube & Star is also in the current Atomic Bundle at IndieRoyale (but not the warped edition).

 

Warped Edition is supposed to be the game but with "different visual effects" (whatever that means).

 

The dev has tweeted that he'll be trying to include Desura keys as well for those who purchased.

Indie Game Stand is such a pain in the ass about Desura keys. It seems like we frequently have to nag them for it whereas we never do with Groupees or Gala. Kind of tired of that crap.

I can't say the issues with keys is the only reason I've not grabbed anything from IGS in a long time, but it certainly is one reason.

On the bright side, at least this comes with a Steam key. The Desura key is just a bonus, imo, I definitely care less about +1 Desura as opposed to +1 Steam. At least the dev is acknowledging it and trying.

Well Gala WON'T give Desura or DRM-free if it is already available on Steam. Plus the soundtrack/bonus art stuff are rarely included. As much as I like Groupees, they don't always get DRM-free and Desura (even if they are available) ie Two Brothers didn't get DRM-free for either Groupees or IndieGala. The situation for these promotions are different. IGS is about the individual dev and the DRM-free, while Groupees is about a theme of games (and if they get desura or drm-free great. If they don't, well we can't do much about it unless the Groupees admins nag the devs for them) and IndieGala is about one or the other. If there's Steam, then no drm-free. If Desura, no drm-free (but Steam in the future of course), if drm-free (well... there is a big chance the game isn't on greenlight and we have to nag for steam keys anyways) 

 

BTW Desura keys available now for Cube and Star. (If OP hasn't updated it yet)

 

also Footlol Steam keys in your wallet now if you bought it through IGS.

Soul Gambler is on sale today only for 99 cents down from $5. However there are no Desura keys (in spite of the game being on Desura) and the game is not on Steam Greenlight at all so that kind of kills the deal for me.

 

A shame because with a Desura key or maybe even just being on Greenlight with a promise of a Steam key later if it gets in I'd definitely go for it at this price.

crowdfunded on kickstarter

featured in the windows phone store

 

I appreciate the honesty, but I'm not sure they understand how a promotional video is supposed to work.

In the case of visual novels and adventure games I don't think there's a huge difference between how it plays on mobile and on the PC but yeah probably not the best way to market to PC gamers.

Oh, hey, IGS hated the Debut 12 bundle, too.

Good for them!

When an IGS game is on Greenlight, do you have to pay a minimum if the dev later decides to distribute Steam keys through IGS, or how does that work, exactly?

Yes, you've gotta pay at least a dollar if you want a future steam key.

Yeah, someone should put that in the OP or whenever a new deal is posted or in IGS's blog.



Also, if you don't care about Loving Life's soundtrack, you can download it for free: Loving Life Visual Novel

Revenge of the Be Mine 12, huh?

If the average gets under $1.20, I might bite for Echo of the Wilds; it was basically the only thing in BM12 I was curious about. At the current average of $1.98 (damn), that might be hoping for too much, though.

Should have got in the cheap buy for Be Mine 12. I've played Echo of the Wilds a bit and it's pretty tough, but seems very interesting and the main game does have a story, though it's not crazy strong so far where I am (you have to find an item to save...haha...good luck!). It is pretty fun and a very good challenge. It feels like a big survival for sure.

Eh. $1.50, which is what most people were asking, felt like too much for one game, and I'm a bit of a paypal n00b, anyway. <$1.20... honestly, that's still more than I really want to pay, but I might buckle if it actually gets to that.
