It's a pay what you want deal to help support indie developers, basically you donate as much (or as little) as you want and in return you get 5 games.

I can't argue that it's a good deal with respect to money, but I've never heard of those game before (except world of goo, of which I only recognize the title) so are they any good?

I don't know, but I put in the 70 cents left in my paypal account simply to support the developers (the money goes right to them). The games are all cross platform so i'll probably download them on my laptop and try them.

OK, well i played a couple of them for a few minutes now. World of Goo I bought previously, it's actually a pretty nicely done game and pretty fun, kind of like Lemmings. Aquaria reminds me of the underwater Donkey Kong levels, but there's more to the game. In Gish you're a ball of tar in a sidescroller, climbing up walls and bouncing around and stuff, kind of weird.

That's all i've tried so far, but for the last two: Lugaru looks like it has something to do with being a bunny and beating up other bunnies, and Penumbra looks to be similar to the Myst series, but with an emphasis on horror.

They're doing it again.

I don't know anything about the games they're offering this time, but here's what i've worked out so far:

Braid is a platform game where you manipulate time to solve puzzles
Cortex Command is comparable to Gunbound or Worms
Machinarium seems to be some point and click adventure/puzzle game
Osmos seems to be a game where you eat things which are smaller than you but seems to have puzzles and levels built around that idea
and Revenge of the Titans seems to be some tower defence kind of game.

So I put in a few bucks and bought it. So far I've only tried Braid, but I'm impressed so far. It's a nice little puzzle game.

I found VVVVVV too frustrating to be fun.
