What’s this? Could it be… why, of course: it’s another Groupees team-up, this time with Dan Long and no less than eight games have been bundled for cheap. The lineup? Oh it includes the first two episodes of Cognition along with Frayed Knights – you know what that means, right? It means you should buy it right now!
Unlike their previous outing, this one’s divided into two tiers, $1 and $4, but you should know how that works by now anyway. As always, the three extras – once unlocked – are included no matter which tier you go for, or how much you’re willing to spend (amount listed is simply the minimum). First one is PYROCLYSM, a game supposedly more difficult than Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac (yeah right!). Time will tell what the remaining two are. Also, since quite a few bundle participants are on Greenlight, REMEMBER TO VOTE! Got it? Great, onto the games then!

Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon (Windows – Desura, DRM-Free) Greenlight

Don’t forget that Groupees’ Dan Long Indie Bundle will only be available for little less than eight days, so don’t wait too long; unless you enjoy paying full price for indie games, that is. Nothing wrong with that, but since a bundle has been made available and all – might as well, right?
