ANOTHER one.  This time it's Super Meat Boy, Shank, Jamestown, Bit.Trip Runner, and NightSky, with Cave Story+ and Gratuitous Space Battle if you pay at least $4.73.

Shank's soundtrack alone is worth at least whatever you'd pay for the whole bundle.

Shank Soundtrack - Intro Theme (Shank)

I think I'm gonna be a skinflint on that one, though. I got more than my fill of the bonus games already, the only game in there I care about (that I don't already own) is Bit.Trip Runner, and I decided against getting that one the last time it was dirt cheap on Steam.

Oh hey I was gonna buy Cave Story for retail anyway.  Of course the average price will have about doubled by the time I can get to a decent computer.

EDIT: Fuck that, I just ducked out and paid my usual "Linux average plus a penny".  Although I think I missed the platform option this time, so I might have just paid into the Linux bucket anyway.  :whoops:

VVVVVV is pretty amazing all the way around Brentai. Do you just hate platforming or something?

Having Avadon on my Kindle Fire is, I must say, pretty great.

Avadon you say? Never heard of it, what's--

OH MY GOD MY CHILDHOOD. Growing up on a mac and having almost no games for it was almost made up for by Exile.

...Avernum wasn't quite as good though, the newer graphics really lost the charm in the switch from dead-on sprites to isometric prerendered

don't fucking care still nostalgia-ing I may have to buy this holy shit I wonder if I can put Exile 3 on my PHONE

Avadon is on iOS and Android, but it's the only one that's on iOS and Android. And it's also the only one that's on Steam. It's an experiment. He had a pretty interesting article about it.

If it does well, other Spiderweb games might make it onto other platforms, maybe.

Hm.  Is it the kind of thing I would be well-served in checking out for Reference Purposes?

(I am, as I've said before, picking at the idea of an episodic game based loosely on 16-bit JRPG's but with less of the infuriating shit about 16-bit JRPG's that drives me nuts in my old age.  As such I'm mining for ideas; I played through BoD7 and have Cthulhu Saves the World on my list, and one of these days I'll get Rainslick working properly again and finish it.  I've also never played any of the Earthbound games and intend to play through the entire trilogy in order, at least to get a sense of how to take a pedestrian image and make it awesome through sheer charm.)

Botanicula, Machinarium, Samorost 2.  Pay more than the average and get Windosill and a movie called Kooky.

Fitting the Botanicula theme, this time around the charity donations go to World Land Trust.

There's a little too much overlap in this one I think.

Yeah, didn't they have Samorost 2 back in the original?

Course, if you already bought the others, you can always just kick the price down correspondingly.

Machinarium, as well. I decided to bite; Botanicula is certainly pretty and, well, I just sort of can't help myself at this point.

I've no interest in the games, but I did beat the average because that trailer looked pretty neat. Too bad I'm pretty tight on my bandwidth cap right now; I'm gonna have wait until the end of the month.

Humble Bundle 5 has Sworcery, Bastion, Amnesia and Psychonauts. Any one of those games is worth the price of the entire bundle, even if it were a $100. You are morally evil if you don't buy this bundle.
