They all look like good games though--don't give up on 'em just yet!!!
Good idea! We don't want to give up - that's why we started the project.
We put some star ratings on there to show that the games are highly rated, just not widely known. Good idea about trailers and gameplay videos though - we'll definitely add those soon! Thanks!

Also, it would be great if all of the games on your service has lites, right now, there is no real purpose to go to your page. But if it all the games had lite versions, I would go there and try then out, and if I liked them, I would buy them.

There are always alot of web sites that have a best game section or something like that. You need some hook, I like the lite idea where you go to try games out and buy them.
@g1sh: I would agree with Connector. I guess because of lesser known titles/developer, people are more inclined to try it out only if there's a LITE version.

I've downloaded Brainsss Free & Hungry Squid Lite. Will be trying them out soon!

=)

Well at this point it's not as easy to create lite versions for all the games, but we'll try to add some good reasons to buy the games nevertheless.

Yeah, too bad, nihilumbra and kometen look like pretty good games. If you can't do lites which would be best, maybe you could have links to youtube, touchearcade main threads, and some reviews for each game.

We need some reason to go to your page. It would be cool to be able to get a multibuy purchase, if you bought 3 games, get some kind of discount or buy two get one dollar app for free or something. This might be hard to implement but would be cool and an incentive to go to this page.

Is the group open to other Indie Devs? And..is the 4.5 avg rating a criteria to join.. if the group is open to other indie devs?

Well, the group is still open but the games need to be good and pretty
If you know of a game to suggest give us a shout.

We are thinking about a contest in which one or two people can win promo codes for all of the games from the pack. I'm in the middle of coordinating that. The contest would simply be about posing the info about the pack to either facebook or twitter and we'd draw a winner from the ones who made a post using the "pay with a tweet or facebook" service.

More info soon
