Get five great indie games (PC) for $5

For about the price of a venti mocha, you can score five games that'll give you weeks' worth of entertainment (unlike, say, a venti mocha).

It's Friday! Need something fun to do this weekend? For less than the price of a movie ticket, you can score a sweet bundle on some relentlessly entertaining PC games.

It's called the 5 for $5 Bundle, and it's available now through July 3. For the impossibly low price of just five bucks, you get the following DRM-free indie games:

Delve Deeper An action/adventure/strategy game in which you "take command of five Dwarf adventurers as they dive into long-abandoned mines to search for incredible wealth, lost treasures, dangerous monsters and bragging rights at the drinking hall."

Digitanks Turn-based tank action: "Build an army of tanks and fight for control of the digital resources with this unique artillery-based strategy game."

Mactabilis Like scrolling shooters? This one features blistering action with RPG elements: "Customize your ship, select from a large array of weapons or even create your own!"

Spring Up Harmony Weird name, cool game: "Use your aiming skills in this physics-based action-puzzler! Shoot balls in the 35 levels of Spring Up Harmony and catch the items falling out of the screen with your user-controlled bucket."

Steel Storm: Burning Retribution A sweet-looking top-down shooter, Steel Storm is the only game here that's also available for Mac and Linux.

You can get a sneak peek of all five games in the promo video below. Alas, none of the proceeds go to charity--unlike the killer game bundle I'm cooking up with AppSumo. (Details on that are coming soon, so stay tuned!) Still, for five bucks, this is a no-brainer. In fact, don't tell the devs this, but I'd have paid 10.

Bonus deal: Today only, Daily Steals has a killer deal on a refurbished fourth-gen 8GB iPod Touch: $159.99 shipped. Very likely to sell out at that price! Thanks to reader mrettig for sharing the info.
