Wasteland one works on Steam.

Hex: Games of Fate - Play the game, and enter the code ingame, I believe.

Don't really like this "download a zip file" model. Now I have to keep track of these until the end of time?
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

To be fair, they're games not available anywhere else.

Wait, aren't you the guy that doesn't trust Steam to maintain your library of games? :D

Yes, because I like having the physical media on a shelf. With this I have neither that, not Steam to do it for me.

If you didn't do the Kickstarter or pre-order it, add Bard's Tale IV to your wishlist on Steam.

If enough people do it, they're going to permanently drop the price by 25% or something.

I'm going to wait for a better offer before adding it to mine. Don't want to get in too early.

Bard’s Tale 4 ended up at $34.95 for a reasonably good sized RPG (40 hours+). If sales are good we will go ahead and create the Dwarven Dungeon of Haernhold for free.

We want you happy and when you’re happy, we get to keep making RPGs.
