    Humble Indie Bundle - 5 games name your price (NOW 6!)

    This is a sweet deal http://www.wolfire.com/humble

    You can pay anything you want for 5 games: World of Goo, Aquaria, Lugaru, Penumbra, and Gish.

    I paid 10 bucks. Figured 2 dollars each was reasonable.

    World of Goo is genius, and I remember hearing good things about Gish. The others are pretty unknown to me though.

    So far I have only played Lugaru and Penumbra. Lugaru is a fun martial arts style fighting game. There is a simple story, and you are teleported from level to level to fight increasing numbers of enemies. Later, you fight wolves which are harder to kill.

    Penumbra is a first person shooter horror game. It is a shooter in the mildest sense of the term since as far as I know there are no guns except melee weapons. It is physics based puzzle solving game. For example, I had to break ice off a door handle by swinging a rock I picked up from the ground. If you are a fan of scary movies/games then this is a good game for you. It's already scaring me!

    Yeah, Penumbra is freaking scary. The unique way of interacting with objects makes it immersive and combine that with the fact that your character can freak out if you stare at any enemy for too long makes it a really scary game. The only way to properly know where the enemy is will be through sound. Listening very closely to the growls of a wolf, hearing him sneak behind you while you have got nothing to defend yourself with is nervebreaking.

    Aquaria is a metroidvania kind of game. A sidescrolling platformer kind of game where you exploration and item collecting are staple. Looks pretty fun so far, havent really played that much.

    Lugaru is entertaining for a while, but nothing too interesting.

    Gish is a nifty little platformer in which you play a blob of tar and do what tar does: Slip underneath obstacles, stick to walls and stuff like that. Pretty entertaining

    World of Goo I think we all know.

    World of Goo is very hard, but its one of them which you would go back to and replay over and maybe over again!!

    Re: Humble Indie Bundle - 5 games name your price

    Is it worth NOT getting these games?
    You can be as cheap as you want, they're all decent indie games and even if you don't like the games too much, you can still support charity. So I don't much reason not to do this.
    (And it's all DRM-free, woohoo)

    Penumbra is AWESOME! (As are Gish and WoG)
    The other two I haven't played, but I'm sure they're AWESOME too! =) Great deal, though.

    More a matter of clutter for me. Plus I wouldn't be happy paying nothing. $20 seems minimum for it to feel like a fair deal - it's like a Trust Box in my eyes. To the developers - not charity, as I have no control over the charity choice and there are many I would actively avoid supporting
    Tend to only have continuously used and valued software installed on OSX. Habit from old days when Audio computers benefitted from streamlining - but I find it one that's not worth breaking as I experience 100% uptime and it feels like a more productive, less distracting, computer.

    There is a middle ground. Think of it as "trying before buying". Buy them for like, 1 cent or something at first and give them a spin. And if you enjoy them, buy them again for 20$, or 30, or whatever you feel like tossing their way. They don't loose anything "per sale" considering that it's a digital download, so it's all the same to them if you buy them once for a hundred dollars or a hundred times for 1 dollar.

    Breakdown of payments so far - funny that linux users pay double the amount that Windows users do - we're not all 'freetards'

    The companies own blog post about the stats
