This Week In Indie: Humble Weekly Sale: Blendo Games And The Catnip Bundle
In this edition of This Week In Indie, we decided to take a look at the one weekly sale promotion from Humble Bundle with Blendo Games, and the Catnip Bundle from Bundle Stars. The promotion and bundle are quite interesting and offer a host of games, to the avid indie fan.

The Humble Weekly Sale with Blendo Games is a pay-what-you-want bundle consisting of three games if you pay $1 or more, and paying $3.70, and over, can unlock one more game. You can unlock three soundtracks in total if you pay the average of $3.70 or more. The whole idea of this Humble Weekly Sale is that every Tuesday there will be a new deal. All of the games included in the bundle are DRM-free and can be downloaded through Steam. The soundtracks are available in MP3 and FLAC formats. As usual, you’ll be supporting an indie studio and two charities with Electronic Frontier Education and Child’s Play Charity. Here is a breakdown of the games you can purchase in the bundle:
You’ll run into baby yetis, toucan stowaways, and penguin bandits on your adventure through the galaxy in the bizarre simultaneous strategy space shooter Flotilla. In this 3-D environment, maneuver your ships, take aim at the enemy’s weak spots, then watch as the action plays out in slow-motion. If you’re not feeling up for an adventure, there’s also a skirmish mode where you can go head-to-head with the computer or another player.
Flotilla received Honorable Mentions in the 2011 Independent Games Festival Excellence in Design and Excellence in Visual Art categories.
Atom Zombie Smasher:
Save the city of Nuevos Aires from a zombie epidemic in the real-time strategy game Atom Zombie Smasher. Rescue civilians and wipe out zombies with a supply of landmines and bombs, plus an army of snipers and infantry. Capture territories for mankind to put an end to the zombie infection. And if you’re tired of fighting zombies alone, you can play with up to 2 other people in the co-op mode.
Atom Zombie Smasher was an Independent Games Festival Excellence in Design 2011 finalist and Indie Game Challenge 2012 finalist.
Air Forte is an educational children’s game that will also delight adults with its easy gameplay, cute graphics, and adorable storyline. Test your math, vocabulary, and geography skills as you soar through the skies. When you think you’ve got your piloting skills mastered, challenge up to 3 friends in the multiplayer mode.
Thirty Flights of Loving:
This first-person interactive short story will have you hooked from beginning to end and leave you wondering what just happened. Driven by a strong narrative and dizzying action, Thirty Flights of Loving (the sequel to Gravity Bone) will require you to piece together the story of a heist. However, we don’t want to give away too much, so you’ll just have to figure out the story yourself!
Thirty Flights of Loving was nominated for the 2013 Independent Games Festival Excellence in Narrative and received Honorable Mentions for the Nuovo Award and the Seumas McNally Grand Prize.
The bundle will expire in roughly four days, so if you’re interested in it you should take a look now. There are some great games in this bundle.
From Bundle Stars comes the new bundle called the Catnip Bundle. In this bundle, upon purchasing you can unlock an average of 9 games including a mystery game, if you pay at least R45 for the whole bundle. As this is a pay-what-you-want bundle, you can also just pay R11 to unlock the first two games, or you can pay any amount in between if you’re feeling charitable. Games included in the bundle are: Pushcat, Metal Drift, Wasteland Angel, Obulis, Nikopol: Secrets of the Immortals, Chains, Post Mortem, Avencast: Rise of the Mage, Scratches and a mystery title still to be unlocked. Nearly all of the games can redeemed through Steam, except for Pushcat which is only available through Desura. All in all, this is quite the bundle and you should definitely browse through some of the games. The bundle expires in 14 days. Much like Humble Bundle’s promotion, this bundle will help to support charity and the developers of the games.
