In case people have missed this:

http://www.humblebundle.com/

The games this time around;

Torchlight
Shatter
Rochard
S.P.A.Z (Space Pirates And Zombies)
Vessel
DustForce

I've been playing Rochard and find that it's pretty much worth the price of admission by itself. Lots of fun for very little money.

SPAZ is kinda like a cross between Star Control II and Elite\Federation. (If you're old enough to rember them all ;)

Torchlight is an arpg like Diablo (made by the original developers of Diablo) with steampunk and worth your money on its own, I've just played through it for the second time in anticipation of its sequel.
Shatter is a kiwi made game in the style of breakout, quite fun.
Spaz is good fun, I haven't got very far into it but it plays like an action rpg with a small fleet of spaceships with ai taking control of those you're not piloting, where you manage everything in between each galaxy, upgrading your fleet of ships.
Haven't played the others so can't comment.
If I didn't already own half the bundle I would jump on purchasing this.

I bought it, even got as far as downloading all the games.  Just havent gotten around to installing them yet!  HumbleBundle seem to do better bundles than indiegala and the rest.
