Your Humble Indie Bundle, now on Steam!

Remember the Humble Indie Bundle? The brilliant initiative back in May by many indie developers to sell some great indie games, DRM-free, for whatever price that you chose?

Well, those folks have announced that all those games that you purchased can be activated on your Steam account as well! They’ve emailed every Humble Indie Bundle customer with this:-

Dear Humble Indie Bundle customer, thanks for your purchase back in May!   I have some good news regarding your games.   Since launching the bundle, our most common request has been the ability to download it on Steam.   Well, I’m happy to announce that Valve has made this possible

Along with this, they’ve given the Steam redemption code for all the games (World of Goo, Penumbra Overture, Aquaria, Gish, and Lugaru HD). So all you need to do is go to your Steam account, click on Add Steam Gameand copy-paste the redemption key, and lo and behold, you have all five games in your account! Oh, and the Bundle will still be available for direct download forever. I wish they’d follow this model of serving customers in the long run!

That’s not all that the email said, though; they also mentioned that they’re hard at work for the second edition of the Humble Indie Bundle. Kick ass news? You bet!

Toki Tori Available for $2.45 on Steam

The adorable little platformer Toki Tori is now available on Steam for an unprecedented 50% off. The original price was $4.99, but Steam decided that the price would not make many users buy it. Why this unique blend of platforming and puzzle was not known to many people is a mystery, for the indie game is brilliant and worth every bit of the money you spend on it. This sale is only for a limited time and only on Steam.

In Toki Tori, players will have to fetch an egg in every level that is richly created in HD graphics. The twist in this seemingly innocuous game description introduces the puzzle genre; players will have to use a variety of tools to achieve the goal of fetching the egg. With names such as Freeze-o-matic and Telewarp, one can only guess at how unique the game would be!
