Meh, my gaming machine will prolly not be able to run the Overgrowth, which will be after Lugaru. And no, they aren't lackluster, you just can't comprehend a nice battlesystem like Lugaru has. :) Their next game will inherit the cool things in Lugaru and it will look and feel better than most "top" games now.

Indie Pay-What-You-Want Bundle Reaches $1 Million 238

Posted by kdawson

Spinnacre writes "The week-long Humble Indie Bundle, a pay-what-you-feel-adequate promotion, reached a million dollars in total contributions with just 50 minutes of sale time remaining. For a minimum price of a penny, gamers could get DRM-free downloads for World of Goo, Gish, Aquaria, Lugaru, Penumbra: Overture, and Samorost 2. The bundle gained great success immediately after being featured on sites such as Ars Technica and Slashdot for followup blog posts about game piracy and multi-platform gaming." According to this tweet from Steve Swink, the milestone means that several games will release their source code. In fact Wolfire is in the process of creating a public source code repository for Lugaru; Aquaria, Gish, and Penumbra: Overture are also due to be opened up within the next week.

I was watching for the last 10 hours or so on Wolfire irc channel. :P First I was like it's not gonna happen, speed is just 7k$/h or so, and would go only to 930k$, but then it got more exciting. For long we thought it would go 5k short as it magically added 10k every 40 minutes exactly, and then it started going faster on 930k or so. Last 30k was no sweat, had over 2 hours left and speed was 20k/h then. That 30k was done in a hour, when someone finally cracked the straw with epic 3333,33 donation. Lugaru is now gpl.

The top contributor paid $3333.33 and the last $100,000 were reached in the last 10 hours of the week of the sale. Meanwhile, Wolfire has lived up to its earlier promise and is currently creating a public source code repository for one of the bundle games — Lugarou, As a reminder to those who liked one of the other bundle games — Penumbra Overture — the bundle includes a discount code that brings the price for a bundle of all the Penumbra trilogy games down to $5 from $20."

What army systems? French navy had to close their connections, had to rely on faxes and phones and such... Also, French fighter planes had to stay on ground when flight plan databases got bitten by conficker... Army of Germany... Polices of Manchester... The list goes on. Also, the IT guys on armies should be pretty good. They are paid to, you know, do lots of important things...

They already have almost $600k, and there is still almost 3 days left, so they might actually have to deliver! If you don't trust that forum post, you can see it yourself on the video, at 1:17.

I say those are some awesome games. And they work on Linux and OS X too!"
