    Should be said if you are a UK citizen and are looking to pay via debit or credit card it probably wont go through as your bank will withold the payment as its being charged in USD

    I have tried 2 different cards thus far and both have been rejected by the bank :mad:

    Bought WorldOfGoo on a similar thing before and it was just .exe download (yes, exe and zip downloads). And yes that's fun puzzle stuff, Gish should be the same and no idea on the rest.

    You cannot complete this action on the card you have selected. Please select another card. :(

    Never had any issues before, this with paypal. Something funky on this think if it's rejecting foreight cards? OP happened to have funds on paypall account?

    edit: Success! Thanks for supporting the humble bundle!

    So all that is needed to do is pay with card currency and let paypall do the conversion. I usually pay with dollars, as it's few sents cheaper :p

    Odd you had problems, but good to know that you still got it.

    Hope more people get this!

    That is unfortunate, perhaps they could address this issue and extend the deadline.

    Thanks for the link WL :toast:

    I bought it.
    Purchase and D/L worked fine except the download of Penumbra failed so I will have to try that one again.

    Now if I can just find some time to play. DOH!

    No worries. Will be interesting to see what the average comes out to be.

    Also I know that a lot of people already have World of Goo, I however just got it... so much fun!

    I did not have WoG either. Can't wait to try it.

    The neat thing about "Pay what you want" is that if you lowball the price and then really enjoy the games, you can go back and buy them again to give the devs what you think the games are worth. Not many people would probably do that but it's an option everyone has if they want to supporrt the devs.

    Very good point Kreij.

    I might go back and buy it again to give them a few more bucks.

    I've paid $15 so far to those guys. $5 for world of goo the first time, and now $10 for this bundle. It's what I feel I can spare. Open up folks. :D

    I think the top one was the dev's mom. :/

    This is a good deal. Indie games can be some of the best.

    I would pay twice myself... I dont have more than $4 on PP atm. But after my paid online surveys go thru i'll have close to $50. Would def drop a bit more money if I enjoyed the game(s).

    10 $ paid here. Everything to the developers. I missed out when World of Goo was on a similar deal. So I'm only buying it for that.

    Worth every penny. I just played through it again this weekend. So challenging at times.
