Indie zoe raider of lost news

Thursday, Thursday, Thursday! Yeah, that’s my new indie-style remix of that Friday song. I’m so innovative. I don’t know how time is flying past so quickly, but it’s already time for your weekly wrap up of awesome indie news. I’ve got Steam news, I’ve got videos, and some cool bundles, too!

First up, some good news for hipsters like me – The Stanley Parable is coming to Mac. I really want to play this game; I might even be a bit desperate to play it. But I’m determined to play it on Mac, and it looks like I won’t have to wait long. I’m not the only one who wants it – apparently this unusual indie sold 100k units in its first week. Hurry up and develop the Mac version – I need to spend more money on Steam.

Speaking of Steam, Path of Exile has officially launched there. It’s Free to Play, and gets the following recommendation from Notch

Also on Steam, Mid-Week madness is upon us and I am using all my self control not to spend money. Don’t worry, it won’t last long – I know I will cave, especially with Gone Home getting a 50% discount. Why does Steam do this to me? I have such a backlog of games, and yet… I need to buy this.

Next up, check out this interview with Jonathan Blow about his PS4 Open-World puzzler, The Witness. It looks pretty cool and innovative, and I like his approach to difficulty.

In bundle news, there are a bunch of cool games you can pick up. The Humble Bundle has added Broken Sword and Organ Trail for those who pay more than the average amount, while the Humble Weekly Sale is sporting all things DeathSpank – but only for a few more hours, so if you want it, get it now. Meanwhile, I still need to get the Indie Jam 3 Bundle over on Bundle Stars – even if I get it just to play Dear Esther, it works out cheaper than buying that game alone on Steam.

Most importantly, we have been making awesome videos of ourselves playing awesome indie games. You should be watching them. So click play and watch me play Desktop Dungeons and Knock Knock. You know you want to.
