It’s for a good cause, too
While I think World of Goo is, probably, the poster child for grossly-overrated indie games, this bundle, that also includes the stupendous Penumbra Overture1, for whatever you want to pay, is a fantastic deal:
The bundle packs DRM-free editions of Independent Games Festival award winners World of Goo, Gish and Aquaria plus Lugaru HD and Penumbra Overture for Windows, Linux or Mac, which cost $80 if bought individually.
Aquaria is also pretty good even though it has some minor design flaws (they don’t really wall off hellishly difficult areas as well as they could, at least in the early versions, where I spent, literally, 3 hours trying to kill one boss) but the whole bloody pack for whatever you want to pay and it’s for charity? That’s win-win-won:
The average payment is 8 bucks, so don’t you dare contribute less than that, XBLA players who routinely pay 10 bucks for *one* game!
1 Probably the best ‘survival horror’ game I’ve ever played and I’ve played pretty much *all* of them.
Torchlight or a Stripper’s G-String: This Is Not a
Hard Difficult Choice
I completely forgot about posting this yesterday (shame on me! shame on me!), but Steam has Torchlight up for five bucks this weekend, and is about the most fun you can have for such a paltry amount:
I manged to play this for roughly 60 hours of a Fri-Sun weekend when it first came out and, for $20, it was worth every penny–at $5 it’s the deal of the ages (until at least Saturday night).
