Star-Twine has been added as a sixth bonus game to the 5 Games for $5 bundle at! The Bundle is only available until July 3rd so get it while you can! All of the games are DRM free and also include keys to unlock the games on Desura.

For just $5 you get:

  • Star-Twine draws players into a vast world of ambient sound and beautiful, colorful visuals, tasked with surviving as a tiny speck of light. Explore the winding threads that compose the 3D game world, build structures to support your efforts, and defend yourself against attacks that can come from literally any direction in 3D space, fighting back a devious AI opponent, or challenging another player online. Developed by Eric Billingsley.
  • Delve Deeper enmeshes players into action-strategy dungeon excitement. The game pits a player and up to three rivals against monsters as they build an ever-changing dungeon map and compete to pilfer loot as quickly as possible. Developed by Lunar Giant Studios.
  • Digitanks is an artillery strategy game in which players build an army of tanks and fight for control of digital resources. The game features two unique gameplay modes for extended replay value: fast-paced Artillery mode and grognard-worthy Strategy mode. Developed by Lunar Workshop.
  • Mactabilis is a high-definition shooter with RPG elements. Featuring two-player co-op and deathmatch modes, players can customize their own ships and select from an array of weapons (or create their own) as they fulfill the ultimate gamer’s dream: Blowing up everything, ever! Developed by Blazing Bit Games.
  • Spring Up Harmony combines the familiar gameplay of Pachinko and Breakout in an action puzzler that will appeal casual gamers and hardcore high-score fanatics alike. An entirely new addiction which won’t ruin your teeth. Developed by Frozax Games.
  • Steel Storm: Burning Retribution is a top-down action shooter with score-oriented competitive gameplay, hordes of smart enemies, destructible worlds and ground-shaking explosions for up to 16 players online. Did you get all that, or should we mention that you can make, share, and play customized missions? Developed by Kot-in-Action.

Support independent developers and grab your Five (but really Six) for Five today at through July 3.

Hi, I bought the whole pack before adding Star-Twine. How can I activate this sixth game in Desura?

Sorry about the Desura issues, we are working on getting Star-Twine to be redeemable on Desura so hopefully that will be happening soon. For now, you can contact to get a direct download link. If you want to add that to Desura, you can follow the steps feillyne posted. Thanks for your support!

I've just added it to the activation page:

Well, bought it too, it seems Desura doesn't detect Star Twine.

You can however try to add yourself, maybe you'll be more lucky:
1) Go to Settings (left click the logo in the top left corner of Desura app)
2) Select "Games" tab
3) In the field "Manually Add Game" choose Star-Twine and determine its installation path (and then click the link above that says "find games installed")

The above solution should work normally. Doesn't show Star-Twine in Play section anyway. Dunno why.

Yeah, an awesome deal! I would say Steel Storm is probably my favorite out of the 5 games.
Thanks for the great price!

I really hope my paypal deposit clears before this offer is over, it won't let me use instant bank transfer (I think because it costs less than £5) and my current debit card has expired, still waiting for my new one to arrive ://
