Yay, cheap indie games and Greenlight – my two favorite things! Well, two of my favorite things anyway. Speaking of the number two… two of the games included in this one have already been greenlit, namely Pulse Shift and New Orbit, so I’m rather puzzled to find them in the lineup. But alas, that’s one mystery which will likely forever remain unsolved.
Hard to believe, but I wasn’t kidding in the title: this lot can actually be yours for just one dollar, and they all come with Desura keys. If you want them on Steam instead, well, you know what to do (hint: vote, and tell your friends to do the same). Simple as that.
Bravada (Windows, Mac, Linux – Desura) Greenlight You play a young beardless dwarf who dreams about adventures and heroic deeds. Usually dwarves have beards, but for some mystical reasons beard of our hero is not grows. So he decide to make a journey with his friend the bat to solve this problem. During the game you control a group of units each with its own specialities and features. Units can get levels and transform into other forms by your choice. Combats is turn based but fast due to clever control system.

It is a game where you finding, trying, jumping, collecting, avoiding, thinking, running and trying again. It is 3d puzzle game where you really playing with three dimensions.
New Orbit (Windows, Mac – Desura) Greenlight [note: already greenlit] Earth is gone. Only some survived. Everyone who could, fled the planet and settled in the asteroid belt. Years passed, factions formed, WAR ensued over scarce resources and precious knowledge. You are a young engineer of the Node Collective, lost deep inside enemy territory. Your mothership was on a secret mission on the far side of the Triterian Empire, but you weren’t senior enough to know its goal and purpose. So here you are – in a tiny, badly damaged shuttle – alone amidst the burning remains of what used to be the pride of your crew – with nothing but the cold voice of your computer to keep you company.
Fatal Theory (Windows – Desura) Greenlight Fatal Theory is an over-the-top side scrolling beat-’em-up like the ones you grew up on.
