Reddit community launches Game Dev Bundle

Xav de Matos, @Xav

Members of the social news site Reddit have launched their own indie game bundle, offering a selection of six titles created by some in the community. Like other indie game bundles, the Game Dev Bundle from Reddit is available as a "pay-what-you-want" set with some proceeds going to charity.

The six-game bundle includes Cardinal Quest, Girl With the Heart Of, Pitman, Influence, Auralux, and Astroslugs. Purchasing the bundle enables a direct download of the DRM-free game along with a code for use on PC platform Desura. (A Reddit user said the group tried to get Steam keys, but was unsuccessful.)

According to the bundle's site, 12.5 percent of all revenue will go to the digital rights advocacy group Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Purchasing the bundle for $6 and more gives users access to a playable prototype, Astroslugs Adventures, and a full game, The Sun is Deadly, along with soundtracks and art from games available in the bundle (though it's unclear if you'll receive bonus content from all six or eight titles).
