Introducing The Organic Indie Preorder Pack!


While hanging out with fellow San Francisco indie developer, Unknown Worlds, we had a crazy idea. Steam, Direct2Drive, and other distributors often have extremely popular game bundles... why not try that ourselves? Here's our first crack at it!

As of today, Wolfire and Unknown Worlds are bundling our upcoming games: Overgrowth and Natural Selection 2 Special Edition. Purchasing both games would normally cost about $70, but now you can preorder them both for $39.95 (saving 40%)! Watch the video below to learn more... in HD!


Background song is the instrumental of "Aeronaut" by Wolfire fan and modder
Jendraz's band: Knights Errant. Check out their Facebook and MySpace!

What makes this bundle special is that unlike many other "indie" bundles which are hosted by corporate middle men, we are hosting ours independently. This means that 100% of all sales go directly to supporting our game development.

Additionally, both Wolfire and Unknown Worlds practice open development which means that preordering gets you access to early builds of our games. Since both games include editor tools, users can already start building their own custom levels (and have been doing so)!

The promotion won't last forever so what are you waiting for? Grab your pack now!


So what if you already preordered one of these games? Awesome! You get the other one for free! This means that everyone who preordered Overgrowth is now a proud owner of Natural Selection 2: Special Edition. See the Secret Preorder Forum for more details.

Since this is an independent bundle, we don't have a marketing budget. Please help us spread the word and use Jeff's new Facebook share and retweet buttons! Happy new year everyone!

Just got a Overgrowth key with my NS2 key, seems I'll get extra copy of both games. So neither a check or pat on the back is needed. :D

Ehm, I hope someone can help me xD
Paypal says "Email adress [my adress], gift".. but I didn't check the Gift box! Can I just purchase it as a gift and still get the games myself..? I think I can, but I want to be sure.

That gift thing is misleading, it's always there even if not a gift.

Is there any alpha access to the Overgrowth engine? I'd like to have a play around with that
You better get that pink dye ready.. I think this will be a pretty popular sale

I don't know if anyone has already asked about this:
It's no biggie, I just want to know how I get the games once I've bought them. I used google checkout, but when I had to type in my adress for the order, I got kind of confused; I ended up aborting the order in the last minute.
So do I get a code, and then go download the two games from their respective sites?
Count me in if the games are downloadable :D

P.S.: It's too late for me to do any actual research on the subject, which is why I'm bothering you guys... :I

Wow that is a bold move that I really hope works out for both teams. I mean its obviously great for the gamers but for once I am actually concerned about the other end. I really want Wolfire and Unknown Worlds to prove that open development works so I hope this pulls in enough new purchases and attention to outweigh the losses.

Don't get me wrong though, I really like this idea since it should spread very quickly and if anything just get your names out there. I just really want to see these teams succeed and would actually prefer to pay for both. I know I'm crazy but anytime indie is concerned I always dodge any discounts or deals and go for the full price, they deserve every penny of it. Will there be other ways to donate or still purchase each game for crazy goofballs like me :)

Here I was thinking that I couldn't make use of the promotion because a) I've already got Overgrowth and b) I'm broke...

... but not only can I get Natural Selection on its own... but for FREE!?!?

HOLLLLYYYY SHHHHHHHHH...!

That is too good guys, too good.

PS I have retweeted and shared. Cheers!
