It looks like it's access only to the alpha's, not anything beyond that.

Nope, it means games that are currently doing 'alpha funding' - wherein they take preorders to fund the rest of development and let players have the alphas to play in the meanwhile.

Can anyone confirm this? I've tried making sure of this all over the site, but all the wording can be seen as ambiguous. They say you get all version "up to the final version" - which doesn't necessarily mean you get the final version or any subsequent patches. Sorry to be a cheap idiot, but I just want to make sure before buying :\

You're thinking into it too much.  If I ran a race right up to the finish line, it doesn't mean I stopped just before it.

Hmm, this looks interesting. I do hope that getting this deal means you have all future versions of the games. That makes the most sense, after all.

Sorry, I've been getting screwed over badly in real life and I'm letting that permeate into awesome indie-devness. The developers have clarified that you get everything over at RockPaperShotgun's comments! Too bad the wording might cause some people to think twice.

Either way, getting it now :)

As the developer of 3079, I can confirm you will get ALL future updates, including the final version!

You know, I think this is the first humble bundle-like collection I've seen where I'm interested in every game offered and don't have any of them. Wyv and Keep looks very fun, and I've never even heard of it.

phroot,

I would just like to say 3079 has made this bundle worth twice my purchase. It's already quite fun, I like the variety in items :)

As for towns it's not my thing, but I'm sure I'll be playing Wyv and Keep later this week.

Wow, thank you for the compliment! I really appreciate it -- I'm glad to know people are enjoying my game! Updates are coming :)

Just got this.

Pretty decent trio I must say, so far IR has been kinda lackluster.

This would have been an insta-buy for me, but it's unfortunately not based in the US (apparently). My bank blocked my card the last time I tried to buy an IndieRoyale bundle.

Last time I checked it was part of the Desura team based in Australia that was hosting the bundle. Why can't you buy internationally with your card (even more so with such a close trading partner), are American banks really that bad?

My guess is that it's the bank's fault. I've never had a problem with my bank.

Both towns and 3079 look to be very promising for alphas.  Though feeding everyone seems rather hazardous in towns and 3079 still needs more overarching goals (maybe base building).  Still pretty awesome.
