Seems Flying Bundle is here to stay, as this makes for three appearances in as many months. While the first two had a variety of games, this one is more of a themed deal, as it’s all about hacking and traversing dark dungeons (though not at the same time, as that would be much too dangerous).
The best thing about (most) indie game bundles is that they’re incredibly cheap, and this one is certainly no exception, with its highest tier being $2. Believe me, you’re not likely to ever find the Hacker Evolution series this cheap again. Oh, and there are also a bunch of dungeon-themed titles, including one with a vampire… bat… creature. Anyway, on the topic of DRM, it’s the usual mix of Steam and Desura. No DRM-free versions, although most Desura games can be downloaded directly. The $1 tier also includes a mystery title, which is bound to be related to either hacking or dungeons. What could it be? No one knows! Time for an overview of the bundle contents.
Adventures of Shuggy (Windows – Steam, Desura)
Shuggy has just inherited a castle full of goblins, ghouls, zombies, and robots. Help him clear out over 100 rooms to make his new home liveable again!

Don’t forget that Flying Bundle’s Dungeons ‘n’ Computers Bundle will only be available for less than fifteen 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?
