They say this is a "pay-what-you-want" bundle, but it's really not. It's a "pay as much over the base price as you want" bundle. Still, it's cheap, and proceeds go to the developers and charity, so you can't go wrong!

I'm starting to get a little ticked off at these groups calling their bundles "pay what you want", but then telling you that you have to pay a certain minimum. That is NOT pay what you want. I'm all for giving the devs and charity their just do, but lets not call it something that it isn't.

The bundles used to be "Pay what you want" but too many people didn't want to pay more than a penny. This is why we can't have nice things.

This bundle has some good games in it, but I already have all but one of them.

Steam has the From Holland With Love Pack for $10 if you're looking for some more quality indie action.

I already have Madballs and Sol Surviver, and Beat Hazard on the iPad, but I picked the bundle up anyways. I figure I can always give away the extra keys to friends and (hopefully) it's for a good cause.

I'm a bit surprised at the price of the second tier (usually called "pay the average") this time around, $10 is the highest I've seen it. Especially considering all you really get game-wise is Killing Floor, which is almost always on sale on Steam for cheaper. Normally I buy the second tier, even if I already have the game, but this time I'm going to pass paying $6 for a game I already have that is usually on sale for around $3.

A good cheap price is going to get you a lot of new buys, and it's going to get you the people who already have the games as well. Going higher will price you out of some of those purchases.

This is the most expensive indie bundle yet, and I'm curious to see what the final take will be compared to their last bundle (or the bundles from others).

oooh, plain sight is in a bundle!

Maybe there will be people online for a change. I love that game but there is absolutely ZERO community for it. =(

Plain Sight going on sale is a little brief moment of happiness cause i know it'll be active for a few days.

So... are these steam keys, or DRM free downloads? The site isn't really informative, and the news doesn't contain this information, too.

All are individual steam keys which is great. Some other bundles you get 1 key and that redeems all the games (not so great). This way if you have 1 or 2 of the games already you can just give them to mates instead. As well as the steam keys and you dload drm free versions from the website itself (don't quote me).

Picked up this bundle as well. Find myself buying so many indie bundles lately, wish i had time to buy them all!

Sure it does, take a look at the end of the descriptions for each game. For example:

Oh there, thank you for the answers.

I still think the site is designed badly; others like humblebundle or indieroyale have a about section which actually tells you how it works in general .
