It's a good bundle.

Fanatical also have some decent cheap bundles at the moment.

I've been running stock Skylines for two years, which is a pretty great game itself. But I'm excited for better/more transit options.

Yeah I've just been playing just the vanilla version as well for a little while. The $1 tier is great value for people that don't have the game.

I got the full bundle a couple of days ago but haven't installed the DLC yet.

I bought it the other day. There's some good stuff in it. A few things that were on my Steam wishlist.

Got three games down the list and saw Celeste. Gave $10.

Going through the rest of the list feels like one of those Shareware discs from the 90’s.

Yeah, there’s a lot of good stuff in there. I’m not saying it’s all garbage or anything. It’s just that there is so much in there that paying $5 for it all feels absurd, similar to a 500-in-1 cartridge or an old shareware disc.

Yeah I know what you mean. It's a massive mixed bag of stuff.

That list wasn't just for you BTW. It's for others looking at the bundle and wondering if it's worth getting.

A Short Hike is another good one in the bundle. It was an Epic freebie a while ago.

It's like I have Kongregate backed up on my computer! :olol: There are lots of oddballs, like project management software for creatives.

I appreciate that Itch.io doesn't automatically add all these games to my library, but I wish I had the option. The first game I downloaded are just plain files, with no installer. I'm addicted to game managers and that they allow me to install and delete games without using File Explorer.
