Indie Piņata puts a slight twist on the Steam sale formula


4:00 AM on 07.18.2014



There's a brand new sale on some indie games happening on Steam right now, but you might not be entitled to any savings. The reason for this is because the promotion, Indie Piñata, designates already owning one of the discounted games as the membership card.

There are ten games featured in Indie Piñata: The Bridge, Super Splatters, Contraption Maker, Flockers, Monaco, Jack Lumber, 10,000,000, Triple Town, MouseCraft, and Dungeon Hearts. Having just one of these purchased means that the remaining nine are discounted for the next eight days or so.

The Indie Piñata is being run by Crunching Koalas, the creators of MouseCraft. The goal of the promotion is to highlight titles that are similar to one another, yet players may not have heard of. With the crowded marketplace that Steam's curated, this is a way for a group of developers to band together to help get the word about about their games.

Matador is now Brigador, still a cool looking mech shooter

I decided to do some checking on Matador, which won me over early this year. This proved confusing, briefly, as some legal issues have pushed the isometric mech shooter to be renamed Brigador. I kind of miss the name, but al...more

U Craft seeks to fill the Minecraft void on Wii U

There might not be Minecraft for Wii U, but there is U Craft. Close enough? This is in the works at Nexis Games, the studio behind some games I'm also not familiar with -- do BrickBlast U! or The Dance of the Damned ring any ...more
