Wait....it's DRM free and on a CD?

You get a Steam key too.

 

 

And for comparison's sake, my Lootcrate this month came with:

 

Negan Walking Dead Shirt

Camp Crystal Lake Decorative Pennant

Halloween Pin

Freddy Kruger Chopsticks (coolest thing ever)

Leatherface Plush

Lootcrate hardcover book about 50 of the weirdest supervillians ever

 

That was $20 shipped.  

 

To me the Steam keys/games that come with these Indieboxes aren't worth much since I know I will eventually be able to get most indie games in a bundle for less than $1 or $2 at worst in Humble Monthly.

 

I get that Lootcrates are probably somewhat subsidized by working with big franchises who want to promote something (last month was TWD Season 7 premier, this month is Doctor Strange in the Lootcrate to promote the movie), but the difference in value between that and paying $24 for a Steam key, action figure, and keychain.

I agree here. I've already picked up Jotun months ago for about $5 so the game has very little value to me. It's very rare that I'll ever be happy spending $25 on a Steam indie game; let alone one that has been around for a while. If it was ever to be worth it, the bonuses would have to be pretty damn sweet. Unfortunately, in this case, they are not.

And just as an update to the shipping - it got to my local post office today, but won't be delivered until Monday.  Veteran's Day is tomorrow and there's the weekend too, but it's still one of the main reasons I dislike this UPS innovations delivery.

This was not the bundle to convince anyone to subscribe.

This is the exact reason why they gave it away for basically nothing because they knew this months box was absolute shit.

Got my box earlier than what the tracking stated. I like the quality of the items but the the box is very small and not very impressive. There is a small paper inside listing all "7"  items and I'm sorry but I don't consider the game case, game manual, and game disc separate items. That is a stretch. Even if it was on time the contents of the box are not worth the full asking price.

Like i said if your gonna do a promo to try and bring in subs then this was an epic fail on their part imo, idk about the rest of you but I dont ever see myself getting another one of these unless they run another promo for basically a free box.

I'll be honest, I'd been waiting for them to do an Indiebox for a game I actually loved, but at this point even that would not be enough.  This box was weak and I wouldn't even buy it for my favorite game.  

 

Anyone with a car has a keychain nowadays and probably 30 extras laying around. Keychains are basically useless.  A toy quality action figure is not impressive at all either.  At least make it a Pop like figure or some other semi-collectible thing.  Not sure if they mailed this one in or cut back because they were running this promo, but they severely dropped the ball on it and I have a worse view of the company after this than I did before this.

If anything I really like the game + soundtrack combo, the keychain and toy while good quality were not impressive / not enough. I think I might pick some of the steel case games from Gamestop if they stock them locally ( GS online fucks up orders all the time ) Indie Box needs to step up their box and shipping to get me going on their sub again.

This crap gave me the bundle box itch so I bought a Lootcrate for some dumbass reason.

I can't figure out what has more value.   The Jotun Steam key or the box.  Might sell the Steam key and just keep the DRM free in the box if I ever play it.  Feels like that would be easier and probably have more value, but who knows.
