Indie pack sale

This ones actually pretty cool.

Quote:
Unstoppable Gorg for: steam (pc and mac), windows, desura

Depths of Peril for: steam (pc and mac), windows, mac, desura

Tobe's Vertical Adventure for: steam (pc)

Inferno+ for: windows, mac, desura

Slydris for: windows, mac, desura

Ballistic for: windows, mac, desura
I love slapping the key into steam and also into desura so I have two copies of it lolololol. Gorg looks great and Inferno+ gives me a old C64 vibe for some reason. The rest look great. Slydris is a pretty different twist to the Tetris formula, actually moving 1 black to the left or right before others drop from above. Such a cheap pack for some excellent games.


Argh...fucking Desura. Everytime I load up the program to add games to my library I'm greeted with a shitload of awesome looking indie games I'd never heard of. Also Amnesia is on special there $5 if you've ever wanted it.

Desura is awesome. Has a mod browser too. Some good stuff for portal.

I've made plenty of posts on Desura before lol. Depths of Peril is also in that indie game bundle. Right now its at $4 for the whole pack.

Theres a game I'm really looking forward to on desura called Kenshi. I so hope it gets made. The info and clip for it make it out to sound like an awesome game.

How come us console gamers don't get such cool software packs and at such a good price-point? I feel ripped off!

PC development is easier, is why Icarus. There's no licensing costs or regulations on the PC, and there's more of a market for them since people buy PCs with intention to play mods and Indie stuff like this. You tend to hear from Indie devs releasing on Steam, XBL and PSN that the PC version was their best version.

I'm sure the console market for Indie games will rise as digital distribution becomes more prominent.

Well they're concentrating on the XBL releases, but they said they're considering more platforms.
