The ninth full-on Humble Indie Bundle just went on sale (there have been numerous offerings since the last one, and many of them have included indie games, but it's been a little while since the last curated collection that put Humble Bundle on the map).
And anyone familiar should know the deal by now: it's a chance to nab some of the finest PC games for a price that you get to choose. Up for grabs this time is "Trine 2: Complete Story," "Mark of the Ninja," "Brutal Legend," and the "Eets Munchies" Beta.
Though paying more than the average will net bonuses, which in this case are "FTL: Faster Than Light" and "Fez."
Perhaps no other game in the XBLA catalogue tells the sad state of affairs, as it pertains to indie developers, better than "Fez".
The Xbox 360's marketplace is where many mainstream gamers got their first real taste of the wild world of indie gaming. Thanks to early hits like N+, Braid, Castle Crashers, Minecraft, to name a few.
It was also a dream come true for many indie developers, a chance to have their games playable on the same machine that's normally reserved for big time publishers and AAA development houses.

At the Venus Patrols Horizon event last week, dubbed "the alternative E3," outspoken indie Phil Fish announced the sequel to Polytron's perspective-bending hit "Fez." Details have been predictably scarce, but after a follow-up interview with Polygon, we can all rest assured that "Fez 2" won't grace the Xbox One with its presence.
"Not Xbox" is Fish's official line on the matter.
Announced at E3's Horizon Indie Game Conference, Phil Fish's enigmatic, more-than-just-a-quirky-platformer, dimension-warping, cube-hunting, secrets-finding game "Fez" is getting a sequel!
This 15-track remix album celebrates a year of Gomez finding his first cube in Polytron's dimension-twisting platformer.
LEGO dioramas and minifigs will always be cool. I declare this as a universal fact. They're even cooler when tackling subjects from popular video games. Following this truth about all things LEGO and games is, Sean Foreman, who masterfully recreates the first level from enigmatic indie game, "Fez." It's too perfect not to share.
"Fez" is a very, very good game that had a twisting, winding path to seeing the light of day on Xbox LIVE (thanks in large part to the perfectionism of its creator, Phil Fish). Well, gamers on other platforms can look forward to playing "Fez," according to a New Year's Eve post by Fish on the Polytron blog.
Fish says he's heard complaints that "Fez" should be on everything everywhere, and while not specifying a timeline or specific platforms, but he does promise something "exciting" for the award-winning platformer's soundtrack.
