Oh boy. Looks like Capsule Computers have caught bundle fever! I mean, this makes what, their fourth? The contents have been consistently interesting though, and as always, cheap indie games is cheap indie games. This particular lineup includes the bundle début of Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, a game which recently transitioned from Games For Windows Live to Steamworks, along with And Yet It Moves, another favourite of mine.
So what’s the deal with this one then? Seven games, each with a Steam key, and the lot will cost ya $4.20; a price that never changes, I might add. No ‘beat the average’ or secret additions. Several different options for payment and… oh, charity! 5% of all profits go to the Australian Red Cross, which I can certainly appreciate (even though I don’t live anywhere near Australia). Now, what say ye to a glimpse of its contents?

Don’t forget that Bundlestars’ Indie Capsule Bundle will be gone in approximately twenty-seven 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?
