Just in case people have missed this:

http://www.humblebundle.com/

Pay "whatever you feel like" and get;

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
Limbo
Psychonauts
Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Pay more than the average (Currently US$8.34) and also get:

Braid
Lone Survivor
Super Meat Boy
Bastion

All are available for Mac, Linux and PC, and either as DRM-free direct downloads, BitTorrents, or Steam.

Part of the purchase goes to the author, part to the Humble Bundle people, and part to the EFF and/or Childs play charities.


Worth the price of admission just for Psychonauts IMO.

Fantastic value, bought the whole lot last week.

Really enjoying Bastion but haven't had much time to try the others.


Edit: Also fun to watch the competition between notch and HumbleBrony.

Wow. They've hit over $4M in sales. I purchased mine when the average price was about $7.39 USD, hadn't hit $2M at that time from what I can recall.

Nice deal.

^ Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a good horror game, it scared the hell outta me.

boys: nice deal but what are the games like ?


Bastion seems a decent game. Braid, and Super Meat Boy are quite cool as well. Having those titles as non-DRM installs is really convenient. I think Mac and more specifically Linux users are chuffed about the native (relatively speaking) versions as well.
