When it rains, it pours, so our gameplay streams have been hit with some drawbacks and therefore a little delay. No worries, however, as we’ve come up with a temporary solution in time to still collect some info on ongoing deals. Our latest offering comes from the less frequent Bundle in a Box people, who have launched their Indie Strategy Bundle quite a few days back. In it, you’ll find nothing but the most gameplay focused games for the megalomaniac’s mind. Conquer in many different ways with up to twelve titles in two separate tiers.
To show off how these titles run on their designs, we’ll play Creeper World. It’s a game where you fight just one enemy, but one so fierce it’s going to take everything we’ve got to manage and explain the details of the bundle at the same time.
If you just want games, you can buy the Bundle in a Box Indie Strategy Bundle here.
It’s finally happened. After providing developers with a low cost way to introduce their games to the world, the Humble people have finally launched a store of their own. This one-stop shop with no currency or fee drawbacks is now offering its first batch of titles and that at a large discount. A total of 9 games are available for purchase, which comes with Steam keys, DRM free downloads and so on. There’s no reason not to take part in this.
The games available are:
- Don’t Starve
- Orcs Must Die! 2 – Complete Edition
- Prison Architect
- Rogue Legacy
- The Swapper
- Natural Selection 2
- Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
- Euro Truck Simulator 2
It’s hard to pick a few discounts from that, but Natural Selection 2 for just $6.25 and Rogue Legacy at $7.49 offer great some great value, if you haven’t picked them up yet. They’re all good draws, however.
More importantly, this central store could finally offer some developer-friendly competition to the corner market that is Steam. As it provides the same keys, plus additional downloads, even Steam purists can take part in it. What’s more: Buying from the Humble Store doesn’t come with an unfair conversion to Euros or Pounds if you’re from Europe. You get to pay what the game’s worth, universally.

Here’s your, now daily, serving of gameplay streams with the latest Groupees bundle, called Let’s Build A Doujin Bundle 2. It’s exactly what you’d expect. A list of seven strange titles is at your disposal, which you can pick and choose from at whim.
We’ll be playing none of these games, since this bundle also comes equipped with additional bonus titles and we had some problems trying to get the basic offering to work. So, instead we’ll play Princess’ Edge – Dragonstone, a side-scrolling brawler of the nude variety. It also has deadly dragons, so everyone has something to watch , as we detail why exactly you should hop on this bundle. Find out more in this gameplay commentary.
If you came here just for deals, you can find the Groupees Let’s Build A Doujin Bundle 2 deal here.
If you’ve been waiting to try out Gone Home, but couldn’t justify the price, you may want to jump on board today, as it has gone 50% off. It does this to celebrate the addition of developer commentary that comes with the free-form game. Hey, that increases the replay value as well, since that was apparently also a point of aggravation for some.
Now, for double the fun and half the price, you can also wander around in a house, pick up objects and slowly uncover a story that’s been praised by critics everywhere. Get your opinionated little snouts all up in it and see for yourself if it’s good. You’ll only lose half the amount now, if you’re not satisfied. Who knows; maybe it is the epitome of storytelling you’ve been waiting for?
You can find out by purchasing Gone Home through their site.

Several of our favorites have made the call, just like last time, when we picked the top 10 of 100 approved games. Our previously discovered E.T. Armies raced through the process, as did the stylish Hyper Light Drifter and Lovecraft game Eldritch. In particular, randomized runner Race The Sun is one of the proud additions, as well as the glorious Vox builder.
Oh, and what a coincidence: Many of these games are currently running a pre-Steam sale, so pick them up now at a low price, so you can get a Steam key when they get added. You can find the Steam-related sale here.
