Not every indie game ends up in a bundle.  And even the ones that do take a certain amount of time (often years) before they do so.

He was supposedly working on an HD version but I don't think it ever got released.

How is that possible?  But, yes, it's easy, you just sort cards by ascending/descending order subject to a draw pile.  There are a few different twists but I doubt it would take more than five minutes to pick up.

Guys, guys, guys.... guys!  Perfect bundle:

 

1) Stuff I want, don't care about you.

2) Stuff I want, don't care about you.

3) Stuff I want, don't care about you.

4) Stuff I want, don't care about you.

5) Stuff I want, don't care about you.

 

Surely, this is the consensus best!

The age old refrain used to be 'Does it activate on Steeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaam?!?!'  Now it has given way to 'Does it have Steam caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrddzz?!?'

Mine sold when I was sleeping.  It seems like overnight hours (relative to the United States) are better for card prices from a seller's perspective.  Perhaps I could have gotten more if I held out but, if anything, the prices will just drop as more people decide to take the 'risk' at $5 (which isn't much of a risk even at a worst case scenario you pay like $1 for the game) and when that Amazon bundle goes live.  Grab your cash and get out of the market!

There are folks out there who spend upwards of ten plus hours a day doing nothing but playing the Steam market like the shock exchange so that's what enables them to do that.

I think people are looking at it the wrong way.  While I'm sure adding extra drops would work as an incentive for people on the margins it also raises the chance that people will need to buy less cards.  Let's face it, the whole trading card thing is marketed towards people obsessed with gamification, collecting, and raising arbitrary internet levels in a social media platform.  When people are paying $30ish for Triple Town Foils knowing that in order to complete the full set they'll need... $350-$400... yeah... on fake internet cards? We aren't dealig with rational people.

The cards are a marketing technique designed to generate revenue -- and it's doing a great job.
