    BTW, Osmos is an amazing game. I was looking forward to it, but never got around buying it.

      I gave $25

        I bought it too, but basically i want to know if there will be one or more game become opensource when a certain limit is reached. This time no open source statement is on the website...

          I bought the first one, the only game worth while was Goo IMHO and that was over in a afternoon.

            Come on, with that price, how can any came not be worthwhile? You could get the whole bundle for $1 if you wanted?

                Yeah that game is really chill and tons of fun. Not something I get wrapped up in for weeks at a time but a nice change of pace for a couple hours here and a couple hours there.

                  i don't buy the last one only because i have allready buyed world of goo.

                  and the other games are not in my taste.

                  the new bundle i really checkt out every game on youtube and with a big good will but its hard for me... very hard.

                  maybe i spend 100% to the EFF and vote for linux...

                  on the other side there are good opensource games for my money spend on..

                    Looks like there was less quality control on this bundle, unfortunately. Cortex Command doesn't work*, Osmos's menu font is still broken, and Braid apparently gives a cryptic message about a missing OpenGL Extension (haven't been able to download this one yet). Hopefully there will be patches, though it's highly doubtful that Cortex Command will receive any update any time soon, given the developer's record. Not a big loss though.. if nothing else, I paid for Osmos and Machinarium and got a nice bonus (RotT).

                    Also, the Mojo(?) installer fails and reverts everything if the install path contains spaces.

                      Small update to my last post since I can't edit: it seems that the 32bit version of Cortex Command works, Braid is only offered in 32bit and doesn't work with r300g, and finally, people are trying to advertise through the Top Contributors list. That's hilarious!!

                        My prayers have been heard!

                        Your prayers have been heard as well!

                        Thank you, gods of gaming, for hearing our prayers!

                        Bought the bundle for $25. :-)

                          Personally, I don't mind that.
                          If someone wants to drop a few hundred towards these indie devs and some charities in return for a URL in a list, I'm all for it

                          Just received the bundle as a gift, will be gifting it in turn to a few friends for the standard price.

                            You're kidding, right? Aquaria, for example, didn't resemble any amateurish work, even the story itself was narrated in a climatic way.

                            I didn't like Lugaru HD, though.

                              I'm told by a long time Cortex Command beta tester that this is an old and relatively common problem seen in the Windows version too. He says restarting the game or reinstalling it almost always fixes it. It's supposed to be very rare - most testers don't encounter it.

                                Since you liked World of Goo then, your 1$ and your time wasn't in vain...
