Get a 12-game indie bundle for $5.99

Actually, you can set your price for the Indie Gala V collection, but paying at least six bucks nets you the full dozen games -- and supports charity.

Indie Gala

I've seen some pretty good game bundles over the years, but this is arguably one of the best yet. It's certainly one of the largest.

The Indie Gala V includes as many as 12 titles -- some of them older, yes, but a broad and satisfying collection overall.

What do I mean by "as many as" 12 titles? The bundle is actually divided into three chunks. If you pay at least $1, you get the first batch of four games. Pay more than $3.99 and you get the second batch (plus some indie music). And if you pay at least $5.99, you get the full roster.

Why would you pay more than $5.99? As with previous Indie Gala bundles, this one shares its proceeds with charity. After you decide how much you're going to pay, you can divide the amount between Able Gamers, Help Emilia, the game developers, and the Gala folks. It's up to you to decide who gets what.

As for the games themselves, they're a mix of action, strategy, puzzle, racing, and RPG -- a little something for everyone. Check out the trailer video below; I'm pretty sure you'll spot at least a few titles that spark your interest.

And, hey, given that a single game could easily run you six bucks, this is -- in my opinion -- a no-brainer for anyone who likes PC play.

Alas, I'm sorry to say that most of these games are for Windows only.

The bundle runs for the next 11 days, so you've got time to do a little homework if you want to know more about each game. Or you can just damn the torpedoes, support some worthy causes, and enjoy hours of fun for a little more than your daily venti latte.

Bonus deal: Today only, DailySteals has the refurbished Logitech Harmony 650 universal remote for $29.99, plus $4.99 for shipping. That's the lowest price I've seen on a Harmony with a color LCD. If you're sick of juggling remotes, this is a great way to replace five of them.
