We aren't exclusively shipping games for children, but we will want to send out a warning to subscribers if we were to send out a game that could be classified as an "M" rating. A lot of indie games aren't rated by the ESRB, so we use our best judgement.

If you head over to store.theindiebox.com you can see our past catalogue and see if those are the kinds of games you're interested in.

He probably, like most people, mistook "all-ages" as "for children." I don't see any reason kids couldn't play, for example, Hyper Light Drifter or Enter the Gungeon or something like that. As long as there aren't tits out, extreme gore, or people yelling Fuck.

 

You are right that most aren't rated, but there are some past games that would be equivalent to a T. Personally, I don't mind, I don't need any edgelord Hatreds or Slains in my life.

I personally cant believe so many people are complaining and bitching about how it could be a shitty game or a game they already have....its 4 bucks people...4 bucks....if its something you end up not likeing then cancel after this month but the fact that people are whining about something,of which isnt even out yet, that costs a whole 4 dollars is quite ridiculous.

Every thread I go into, I see you complaining about people complaining, even if no one is complaining.

I'll let you off with a warning, but work on your content quality in the future.

Not really, all I can see are people who are going for it and just won't renew if it's a turd. Which I think is completely reasonable.

So the drama will be in seeing if they really stepped their game up to a whole new level to capture those renewals and word of mouth or went the complete opposite direction knowing they were giving a bunch away.  I can't wait!

Yep. Ideally it's the former, but who knows.

Thanks for the link.  I've actually checked out the store from time to time to see if any of my favorite games have popped up for purchase.  Nothing yet, but I know you guys do have high quality games.  

 

I'm not sure how you guys decide what games to do, but do you guys ever do special editions on top of the monthly game?  I'd love to get stuff like 7 Days to Die in some sort of cool boxed version, for example, even though I already own it.  Maybe a special edition horror game every Halloween?  Not sure if the demand would be there overall, but just a suggestion.

 

Thanks again for the coupon and looking forward to see what we get this month!

Tease during the community live chat was a Spotify playlist of Norse/Viking-centric songs. Any ideas?

Well, I'm not wanting any extreme violence or anything like that, I just know a lot of the games I like wouldn't be suitable for a 12 year old (which is what she mentioned earlier).  I know there are a lot cool and creepy games that would still be appropriate for 12 year olds so all hope is not lost yet!

You know, other than taking great care with my posts to not say anything offensive to the rep or others (like say calling someone's preference for games "dumb" simply because they aren't my own), I reviewed the entire thread after your comment and could only find a handful of "complaints" none of which were presented in an offensive manner.  Yet, you decide a few people asking questions or speculating on the game is enough to drop a sexist slur and accuse them of "bitching."  I just don't understand when people actually bring down a thread with inappropriate comments while pretending they're being altruistic.  

 

 

Anyway, as promised, Kara dropped an entertaining stream on Facebook just now where she answered questions and gave a hint about next month's game through a Spotify playlist.  I'll post the link here and hope CAG doesn't break it because I think it's a Spotify linked wrapped in FB referral link that's going to be wrapped in a CAG referral link:

My guess based on the music is Jotun, which I'd be more than happy with since I don't have it and it looks pretty interesting.

All right guys! All the vouchers have been redeemed. Be sure to follow us on your preferred social media channel so you can see what we're up to between now and when you get your box at the end of October. <3 <3 <3

 

I put together a playlist that teases next month's box on our Spotify account. Don't want to get in trouble for throwing links all over the place, but it can be found in the Facebook chat we did earlier (as IAmTheCheapestFox mentioned) or you can find us under IndieBoxMusic.

 

Have a good one! :)

If that is the case then no renewal from me because that thing is a disaster

 

e: Nevermind, I'm confusing it with some other nonsense one-word game. A thing with a girl and sword, it maybe sounded like Toriko? But Toriko is cool, so it's not that.

You're probably thinking Toren?

Jotun has a 79 on metacritic, and the art style looks amazing and the game from the trailer looks interesting so if it is indeed Jotun then I look forward to what the physical goodies could be and will be interested to play the game as well.

Pretty sure IndieBox liking my previous comment basically confirms that we are indeed getting Jotun.

There's a few Norse/Viking themed games on Steam, but I really hope it's Jotun. I don't have it, I think a lot of people here don't have it either, and it's actually a very good game. It would make sense too, the game's been out a full year as of tomorrow, and the developers just announced their new game 2 days ago.

 

I guess it could be The Banner Saga, which is good and all, but I have it already. I don't have the sequel on Steam, so that'd be nice as well, but much more unlikely.

 

Fingers crossed for Jotun then. Thank god it's probably not anything pretentious.

 

All of the games we send out for our subscription service are Win/Mac/Linux  :D

Thank you for the quick reply. My friend is happy to hear that.

 

I personally cant believe so many people are complaining and bitching about how it could be a shitty game or a game they already have....its 4 bucks people...4 bucks....if its something you end up not likeing then cancel after this month but the fact that people are whining about something,of which isnt even out yet, that costs a whole 4 dollars is quite ridiculous.

I think most of us Steam thread regulars were expecting something we probably own already, but it only being $4 takes a lot of the sting out of that, especially if the physical goodies are cool (I know we're probably not getting a SNES USB controller, but that'd be fantastic). My only complaint would be if it was a game I really disliked to begin with. Like the aforementioned Dear Esther.

I just e-mailed IndieBox support with my receipt attached from September when I placed the order.  No box has been delivered for October and under my account when I log in to IndieBox, it shows no past orders, but shows an active subscription that will be charged again next month.  Funny, since my credit card statement shows I was charged near the end of September for October's IndieBox which I never received...

 

I'm kind of worried now...
