    Another awesome pay what you want indie bundle but there is no button showing up to continue the payment :confused:
    Tried in FF and Chrome, maybe they are getting overloaded.

    Seems they are having an issue of giving out used keys.

    Might sit on it a while before purchasing to see if this is cleared up.

    Its funny that the average purchase is $1.16 or something.. lol..

    I think the whole 'indie bundle' thing has now become somewhat diluted.. its like every week there's a bundle going on sale and ppl seem to be offering less money for it..

    #1 Humblebundle (9 bundles)

    #2 IndieRoyale (6 bundles)

    #3 IndieGala (2 bundle)

    I seriously don't think the gaming community needs so many but then it is good exposure for the developers of the games.

    I'll keep buying em, simply because I want to give money to devs and encourage them to keep supporting our platform even if I never play any of the games. Double edged sword really. I think the end result will be that no one will buy full priced indie games as there might be an expectation that they'll eventually end up in a bundle..

    I want to support the devs too, but whenever these bundles come up, I already own most of the games anyway.

    Then I feel cheap offering $10 for a 5 game bundle as I already own 3 and have no interest in 1. I'm basically just buying 1 game for $10, which is usually the normal steam price anyway.

    Good advice, I will try later :thumbup:
    Cause I do want some of the games in that bundle, and am willing to pay more than $1.13 or whatever to get them :lol:

    I don't mind if there are heaps of indie bundles, I buy them all anyway and if they truly do end up benefiting from them then I say keep doing more!
    If they got no benefit (for the devs/charity/keeping the sites afloat) then I'm sure they wouldn't have lasted this long ;)

    Yeah.. my donation is made up of how much i'd pay for the games that i don't have.. I'm not going to pay for games twice, regardless of how they're sold..

    This, I'm kinda surprised they keep doing it (it is good how they keep getting some serious exposure though). It does however make people think twice before buying a new release indie game on Steam due to the high chance of it going for whatever you like at a later date

    And if last year's Steam New Year Sale repeats itself, expect to see indie bundles at 80% off.

    I'm wanting that so bad. While I've had Steam for a few years it's only really been since the start of this year (after the Christmas/New Year sale) that I've started buying games through Steam. So I missed out on the indie bundles last year ):
    I've got $200 set aside, so if I see something I like, I will be buying it without any qualms. Any game I think I may like coupled with 75% off I will instantly buy, yay!!

    Not in Australia if you want to make any sales here.

    Take a look at my recent thread. 96% of OCAUers import or buy from digital distribution.

    You'd need to find a UK or US supplier and airmail in latest releases to be anywhere near price competitive, at least on the PC side of things.

    Australian distributors have basically killed the local market for PC games due to their own greed, at least IMO.

    At least for the price sensitive and resourceful market. Our local companies are still selling things, only a matter of time for their impending doom if they don't change their ways.
