    Living legend Jeff Vogel, the face of Spiderweb Software, has decided to do what all the cool people are doing and put his entire library of games in a Humble Bundle sale. Here's a video and an explanation:


    Fifteen epic RPGs plus bonus content. The Humble Weekly Sale features a new deal every Thursday. Be sure to jump on this amazing offer before it’s gone! This week, pay what you want for the Geneforge Saga, Avadon: The Black Fortress, Avernum: The Great Trials Trilogy, Avernum: First Trilogy, plus Spiderweb Software game art and hint books. If you pay more than the average, you’ll also receive Avernum: Escape from the Pit and Nethergate: Resurrection!​

    Fire it up DRM-free on Windows and Mac. Your purchase will get you these amazing games DRM-free for Windows and Mac. Geneforge Saga, Avadon: The Black Fortress, Avernum: The Great Trials Trilogy, Avernum: Escape from the Pit, and Nethergate: Resurrection are available on Steam and Avadon: The Black Fortress is also available DRM-free for Linux. Full system requirements for the games can be found here. Please note: Avernum: First Trilogy will NOT run on OS X 10.7 Lion or later.​

    Pay what you want. Pay anything you want to receive fifteen RPG epics. Pay $1 or more to receive Steam keys for select games. Beat the average and we’ll also throw in Avernum: Escape from the Pit and Nethergate: Resurrection, DRM-free and on Steam!​

    Support vital charities. Choose how your purchase is divided: between the developers, the Child’s Play Charity, or the Electronic Frontier Foundation. And, if you like this weekly sale, a tip to Humble Bundle would be greatly appreciated!​

    Pretty cool. I believe all of these titles have Steam keys except for the first three games in the original Avernum trilogy and Blades of Avernum. Which reminds me, isn't it kind of weird to compete against your own Steam sale?

    Can't say I ever noticed Jeff Vogel was considered a living legend.

    Yes. His games range from "great" to "good for an indie game" to "well, there's nothing else to play" generally with the older ones being better. The only one that really isn't good is Avadon (shitty boring story/characters and way too much filler combat) but even Avadon is preferable to some much bigger budget RPGs out there.

    Finally Nethergate and Geneforge for cheap enough to bother buying.

    avernum 6 is good, despite the stupid tiered story structure. avadon.. is.. a bioware game without digital boobs.

    I paid $1, minimum to get the Steam keys. I gave 75 cents to charity and 25 cents to humble bundle. I don't think present day Vogel deserves to be rewarded for what he did 10 years ago.

    Did you also notice the absence of your sense of humor?

    The more games I have, the handier I find it to have them all in one place and easily accessibly from any computer, since I own quite a few of them and synchronizing everything can be a pain.

    I hope there comes a day when Steam, or an equivalent, lets me upload any non-Steam games to my personal digital library too -- that'd be heaven.

    OK.

    Sounds too modern for me. I think I'll stick to one machine, and that will be an immobile desktop one. I'll just throw my Steam keys to a garbage can.

    I'm not going to gift anything to idiots who can't donate Vogel $5 to get pretty much all of his games. Geneforge 5 alone is easily worth 50 bucks, and probably one of the best CRPGs around.

    Wouldn't a generic cloud storage service be sufficient for this purpose?
