The lights are on
Seven independently created games that utilize Unreal Engine 3 are on sale for a single affordable price.

I was so excited when I saw the bundle!...but then, I saw I wasn't really interested in any of the games, except for Q.U.B.E. and The Ball...so...:P nice deal though.
Lame, I already have half of these games. Also, some of these are hardly worth having. Still, if you want any two of these games then you're better off just buying the bundle.
Not to be rude, but I seen better bundles at the humble bundle. These are okayish games, at least in my opinion.
Qube and Sanctum are both great, but that comes out to $20 anyway. I still think the bundle is pretty cool, but I won't be buying it since I have most of these.
well, got excited, then saw that I owned two of those games already. I never really got into sanctum though...dungeon defenders was fun...
This is a great deal, especially for Dungeon Defenders. If anyone hasn't played that, now would be a great time to get it. That game was great.
While very cool (it's a MASSIVE shame that megapublishers only seem to produce more shooters using Unreal tech), I kinda hate unreal-powered indie titles. The tech just doesn't scale nicely to older computers, unlike, say, Unity. I tried playing The Ball, and I couldn't get it past 10fps on my laptop... which I admit is my laptop's fault for being old. But there are plenty of indie games that work great on it still - Orcs Must Die 1 + 2 (which don't run on Unity but still has nice, scaleable tech) run fine at 60fps or higher. There's something wrong there...
Unreal 1 thru 2.5 though? Work great. So I got no problem running older Unreal-powered games. Which is great, because frankly, my favorite Unreal powered game is STILL Unreal Tournament 2K4.
Great deal though!
My goodness, what excellent deals. Too bad I have many of these already...
I already own QUBE, Dungeon Defenders, and Sanctum, and the only games in the bundle I don't have that I'm interested in are Unmechanical and Waves, which if bought separately are $20 as well. The Ball looks slightly interesting, and I read an article about it while it was in production, but it received mediocre reviews. I think a sequel to Primal Carnage is being developed for the PS4, though I don't really want it.
Very nice deal. I only own Dungeon Defenders so I might just have to pick it up.
Huh..some of these are pretty good..For anyone who hasnt played these,this is a fantastic bargain.
