Indie Gala Mobile...

Look, Indie Gala, I get what you're trying to do. "Humble Bundle is great, Humble Bundle raised lots of money, let's try and imitate everything Humble Bundle does." And Humble Bundle did an Android bundle, so now you want to do an Android bundle too.

The thing is, the Humble Bundle is so great mainly because it has really good games. Whereas the Indie Gala has...well, whatever games they can get their hands on, regardless of quality. They've had some good ones, but they've also had some...not-so-good ones. I appreciate the value, but let's be clear, it's a hit-or-miss deal.

And now they're doing what they call "Indie Gala Mobile", which is a bundle of games for mobile devices. And the trouble here is, you don't get a PC version unless you beat the average! That's terrible! I mean come on, guys. Maybe it's greedy to want Steam keys for everything, but is a DRM-free download too much to ask?

I don't really feel like talking about the games themselves right now, but I am not particularly excited about this, especially since Legends of Lore and Cardinal Quest can apparently be played for free already.
