5 Fingers Gaming Bundle

Five completely different game developers have decided to set aside their competitive spirit and join forces in what I hope becomes a new trend on the app store.

They are each contributing a game to the “5 Fingers Gaming Bundle,” which will be released on the app store soon. This will be one app, that contains 5 games, much like several consoles have done with “arcade packs” and such.

I have three out of five here as well (Blackbeard's Assault, Up There and Sneezies), so this wouldn't do me much good either. It's an interesting concept, but I think you'll find a lot of people in the same boat as pante and I, which could make this type of thing a hard sell. Now if they could find some way to do a "build your own package", that would be something entirely different...

I remember when Tim Haines was first discussing this and looking for other developers to partner up with. It's good to see this idea actually grew into something real. I already have Sneezies, Up There, Burnball, and Blackbeard's Assault (Lite), but will be happily picking this one up. Not only do I get the full version of Blackbeard's Assault, I essentially save 3 spaces on my springboard. ^ ^

The space saving is the key winner in my book.

Web Designer & Developer since 1999.

Games I highly recommend: CozyQuest, Gemmed, Jabeh, Blue Defense, Blue Attack, geoDefense, Hospital Havoc

This is a really cool idea, unfortunately I have 3 of the games as well, and I'm not extremely interested in Blackbeard or Chopper. That's what I get for buying every game I want as soon as it comes out, I guess :P

I just want to say we're really proud to be a part of this. All 5 of us have no shared investment or anything like that in each other's companies... I think it really says a lot that we're willing to get together, work out the legalities, the technicalities and the eventualities, and cooperate out of a shared enthusiasm for each other's work.

Anyway, here's a video I made of all 5 games: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBTourPnyUs

Good idea

It's a great bundle with good games for the right price. I already have 3 so I'll pass too, but I really like the idea!
