The Humble Indie Bundles or Humble Bundles are a series of game bundling experiments that allow users to purchase collections of multi-platform DRM-free independently developed video games online in a "Pay what you want" manner, with proceeds bypassing middlemen and going directly to the indie developers and charities.

Do you also think that everybody who bought CaveStory+, which came out only about a month ago, got really cheated? I got Jamestown this summer and I feel angry at HIB for including it. The bundles should not include games newer than 5 years IMO. Otherwise it sends a very bad message - "your money is worthless, even if you supported the game dev and got the game on the first day for a much larger price, cause now everybody can have it for much less".

That doesn't make any sense. If you are paying the game full price to support the developer, what does it matter if it is getting discounted in a steam sale or included in a bundle? Does that take your money away from the developer?

Actually you should be happy if the sales increase and the developer gets even more money and support for future projects or to continue working on his game. Otherwise you just wait that the proce drops to buy, and don't whine about "supporting the developer". Nobody points a gun to your head to buy a game on day one.

For example I bought both Project Zomboid and Survivors of Ragnarok on Desura to support the platform and those games. But I also know that thay are bound to be included in a bundle sooner or later, and I will probably buy them again. It is no a secret that bundles and discounts happen often and soon, especially for indie games, after release (or even before).

Maybe you got money to burn, my friend, I don't and it highly frustrates me when I spend my hard earned cash on a game just to see it a lot cheaper not long after. I love indie games and buy some titles from time to time (usually 1-2 per month). Each one I carefully select to make sure I like it etc. I don't have much free time to play those games though (not to mention hundreds of other games in my collection), so they just lay around on my hdd until I have some time to play. And then a bundle comes around featuring the game I paid for and haven't had a chance to play it good, and I could pay 0,25$ (bundles usually have 4 games) for it. That's why it feels like lost money.

even if it wasn't in a bundle, all steam games get discounted. just wait for the next big sale. so, especially if you're not playing it right away, it's always "burned money" to buy full price, unless you want to support the developer by willingly pay more.

I would love to have the new bundle, but only if Desura keys are added. I'm not going to gamble on yet another bundle.

What's wrong with it not having a desura key? They give it DRM free anyway, so you can manually link it to desura

It's easier to keep everything updated with Desura.

I asked the same about DoD in the introversion bundle and some days later they added the keys. Let's hope they will do the same this time.

I tried asking in the humble bundle chat if there where any plans on desura keys, but had no reply.

It would be great, I love using desura on linux and really like it to manage all my games there.
