Latest weekly Humble Bundle sale offers some great Introversion titles

Darwinia

Introversion, the last of the bedroom developers, have been responsible for some of the best indie titles of the last ten years. Now they’re offering them up for a pay-what-you-want style arrangement on the Humble Bundle store for the next seven days.

For the price of “whatever you want to pay”, you can grab Uplink, Darwinia, Multiwinia and DEFCON, including four soundtracks. You’ll also get the source code for those four games, as well as the Voxel Tech Demo and the City Builder Tech Demo.

Today only, you can pay $19.99 to also grab Prison Architect, which is currently in buy-in alpha testing and will give you early access. That price will go up at the end of today, so move fast — this bundle is worth that alone.

Check it all out here.

I love prison architect. I don’t know why I love it, I just do. I start playing it, then before I know it, it’s 8 hours later and I’m close to having to restart m prison because I’m outta money :P

 

kinkykel,

Not sure if you’re exaggerating, but it’s not healthy to play for such a long period of time. Kinda adds to bad stereotype of gamers having no life. There’s more to life than games.

This bundle is recycled a bit because they’ve already done it before (without Prison Architect mind you), however bundles are easily missed so it’s good they’re doing it again.

kinkykel,

Out of curiosity, how does it differ to people sitting in front of a TV watching movies/series/whatever-other-crap-they-show-on-TV-these-days?

Some how doing any activity other than gaming for extended periods of time is considered normal, especially in contrast to gaming itself. In some extreme cases, I’ve had a friend or two shut themselves in for 3-7 days watching a series, and this is still looked upon as less ‘concerning’ behaviour than if I have a 12 hour game session (Alan Wake’s story sucked me in so hard!).

“Oh, you spent the weekend playing video games? What a no life loser!”
“What did I do? Oh I spent the weekend watching Game of Thrones and comedy/romance movies. They clearly aren’t the same thing!”

 

jjager,

You’re right – they don’t differ. Sitting on the couch watching TV for very long periods of time is also a bad idea, so I’m not sure what you’re trying to say. I don’t see it as any better than extended periods of gaming. I’m just saying it’s best to avoid it if possible. But I digress. :)

 

phasmatis,

What I was saying is that gaming for an extended period of time = bad/no life/loser. Watching TV/movies/series for an equal or larger time period = okay/’normal’.

This is relation in to the generalized view of society, not just you/me. :)
