So many bundles and games to go through!
Let’s begin with something different. The old bundle standby- Humble Indie Bundle- has turned its eyes to the aural arts and is currently running as the Humble Music Bundle. Paying the minimum of one penny (!) will net you these five albums:
Favoritism– MC Frontalot
Album Raises New And Troubling Questions– They Might Be Giants
Calling All Dawns– Christopher Tin
Best of the Valkyria Chronicles– Hitoshi Sakimoto
Jonathan Coulton’s Greatest Hit (And 13 Other Songs)– Jonathan Coulton
Paying more than the average ($8.13 as of this writing) will also entitle you to Twelve Mixes of Four Songs by Ok Go. As always, money will go to both Child’s Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Pump the jams here.
Indie Royale (known in Europe as the Indie Quarter-Pounder) has bundled Puzzle Agent, Geneforge Saga, Oniken, Mutant Storm Reloaded, Swift Stitch, and Unepic for a minimum of $5.68 as of this writing. While I’ve only played Puzzle Agent, I can tell you it’s well worth the $5 you can get it for on Steam, so paying $0.68 more for five extra games is a steal. Paying $8 will also get you the chiptune album Insert by Prof.Sakamoto. Order up here.
Build-A-Bundle 2 lets you whichever games you’d like from a selection of twelve that includes:
The pricing is variable, with each game costing less the more you buy. Currently, you can get all twelve for $8.40 and receive four bonus albums. Build your bundle here.
The Indie Gala 7 is live with three games going for the minimum of $1, and another game unlocking in the second week. The minimum will get you
Paying more than the current average of $5.96 will entitle you to
and another bonus game that will unlock in the second week as well as some ‘secret bonuses’ (usually albums and art). Rig’n’Roll is apparently a cargo truck sim with high speed action based in California, so I’m sort of obliged to check it out. Also, the King’s Bounty series is a turn-based strategy game that offers hours of fun, and is itself worth the current minimum. Money directed to charity will go to Able Gamers and the Italian Red Cross. You can purchase the bundle here.
