Be Afraid, There’s A New Valve / Indie Bundle

Be Afraid, There’s A New Valve / Indie Bundle

Last year, Valve released a bundle of indie titles called the Potato Sack. It was a great deal, sure, but another main purpose was for it to set off a chain of marketing and hype that led to the early release of Portal 2.

This year, the idea returns, with the Potato Sack Reunion. For USD$20, you’ll get 13 of the best indie games available on Steam, including Audiosurf, Amnesia, Defence Grid, The Ball, Super Meat Boy and BIT.TRIP.BEAT. If you’re thinking “that’s the same offering as last time”, you’re right. That’s why this is a reunion.

As a bundle, it’s a nice idea. As a possible launching pad for another round of Valve conspiracy madness, it’s devastating in its implications.

My advice? Sit this one out. Your heart won’t take the strain.

Potato Sack Reunion [Steam]


  • Potato Sack lead to Portal 2? Does this mean the Potato Sack Reunion leads to more Portal 2 content? Or maybe Half Life 3?… One can dream right?

    • The smart money would be on it leading to the left 4 dead / payday collaboration… Whatever that is…

  • This…. This HAS to be a marketing move. Doubt it’s a huge thing, but it’ll be something, I’m sure.

  • HL3. Plz plz plz. I’m a sucker for valve, I’m happy to line their pockets knowing whatever content they produce will be awesome
