First, credit to @GrayFrequency here on this, wouldn’t have seen the Tweet if not for her!
Second - Wow! Am I reading this right on the price and/or is there a catch to Humble Bundle (I’m not familiar with it)? $10 for all those games including Boundless? Well, that is what it is… spread the word!
SQEXC just advertised it too
I am actively using Humble Bundle and there is no catch. It is less than 1$ per game.
Looks like we can expect some peak like on the free weekend.
Perfect - great opportunity and time to get the word out!
Really, lot of people probably looking for a great escape like Boundless, and good deals. Good time to draw some new folks, especially with the beacon change so close.
@Lorgar - Thanks!! Great to know, I think I need to start following them!
Thank you @bucfanpaka
Couldn’t help but retweet it as soon as I saw it.
It would be awesome to get more players!
Thanks, so so happy you did, and totally agreed!! Seriously, I was telling someone just a little bit ago elsewhere that we are in a perfect window for a good sale (edit: not to make light of the situation causing it of course, but people are playing a lot right now), which would also give a good chance to spread the word on social media. Games are the big escape right now… and truly can’t think of a better one to escape into!
Yay!!! Players. Maybe spicy beans will get cheap with all the newbies running around.
Knowing previous bundles there are usually 20k - 100k bundles sold.
Not everyone gets the highest tier but there will be many Boundless keys out there.
When enough try Boundless we may even see new permanent worlds.
Just dreaming but clearly excited.
Oh yeah, would love to see some new permanents! This really is quite a deal - and benefits charity too!
I’ll get the link on the Reddit. On Twitter, luckily a bunch of active folks - great screenshots and videos and chat, in case people start searching there, that is all good stuff to see if they’re thinking of firing it up.
Also have to assume we may see new folks here too - to any who may be stopping in, welcome!
pulled me of my No Man’s sky and boundless addictions…LOL
i see how it is i think you have to leave now…silently
Oops, meant Minecraft!! I’ll delete - arrgghh, why doesn’t Twitter have an edit function, lol? (Thanks for catching it!!)
… LOL, so I went and deleted the wrong Tweet. Replaced both. You can see how my brain misfires here.
Well, this time I put screenshots on that Tweet, so not a total loss, haha!
Humble bundle is great!! Been signed up with them for a couple years now. They give you like $150 in games each month for $12/month in the humble monthly. Pretty much pick 7-10 games you want each month from the list of games they give you to choose from. Activate keys through steam.
I’ve got some pretty insane games from their monthly bundle for damn near free. Definitely worth getting if you like a wide variety of games. Hence why my steam library is 500+ games deep.
That’s just from the January bundle
(Check my “off topic” post for free games up for grabs)
Looks like almost 5000! Bundles have been sold already!
yes monthly (now called choice) is great. Just too many games to ever complete them all
Also looks like first effect is getting visibile. Trior is more busy than usual
Thanks to Boundlesscrafting for stats
Waiting for new planets like
Oh yeah! Looking at the Steam chart, comparing it to right around this time yesterday, looks like around a 50% increase or so?
Hmm, I’ll try to keep a closer eye on the game chat - great with the notifications now that, that is a huge benefit with newcomers entering. Easier to ask right then if a stumbling block is hit.
Yeah, but those PC player numbers look way off…only 30 as the max? Can’t be.
The graph I posted above is just filtered on the planet Trior as that shows a visible impact and is a T1 planet where new players arrive.
Overall Steam count was 149 some minutes ago which is higher than last weekend already
