Fort Wayne has earned a special nickname amongst much of its younger residents. Utilizing the sharp wit common in members of recent generations, college students, teenagers, and even tweens often refer to it sarcastically as “Fort Fun.” Alliteration is difficult to argue with, and for many, this nickname is astonishingly accurate. Although the city does offer more than many other Indiana towns, it can often still be difficult for local youth to find any activities to occupy themselves, as it is not uncommon for any entertainment options to be either nonexistent or far too expensive to be enjoyed. The solution? Video games, of course!
While not appropriate for every situation, such as when someone is looking to go out for some fun, video games are perfect for when a group of friends is gathered in a house together and simply cannot figure out what to do. Still, it is true that they usually tend to fall into the “too expensive” category mentioned above, but not for the next 9 days. A group of independent game developers has come together and released the third in a series of “humble indie bundles,” wherein they sell 5 of their most successful games together (several of which could be considered casual, so no worries to those who feel uncomfortable playing something as advanced as Call of Duty or The Legend of Zelda) in one pack and allow the buyer to choose what to pay for them. Anything goes, from one cent to one million dollars (cue Austin Powers reference here). This particular bundle contains 5 games- And Yet it Moves, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, and Hammerfight. Still not satisfied, though, the people behind this remarkable deal have also included free play of the full version of Minecraft until August 14th for all buyers, so this is the perfect way to try the game out if one has been interested in doing so but hasn’t actually bought it yet.
Purchasers can also choose where their money goes, as the bundle has an option, upon payment, allowing them to choose whether to give their donations to the developers, charities (including the famed Child’s Play), or a mix of both. As these people have kindly put together this amazing package without being asked to do so, it would only be polite not to take advantage of them and offer up at least a few dollars for it.
