A Pack of Gems (As If Anyone Expected Otherwise)Wiesler | Nov. 14, 2013 | See all Wiesler's reviews »
Given how flawless Binding of Isaac and Super Meatboy were, you might be curious about McMillen's previous work. Well, I'll save you some time, this bundle is a great mix of video games, art, music and insight.
Here are just a few highlights. There is an excellent puzzle platformer with a twisted story called Time Fcuk, that feels like a more methodical, but equally brutal, Super Meat Boy. There is a very mysterious and whimsical adventure game called Aether, which has you exploring /solving other planets with your pet/friend alien. At this price, this is a steal for a great collection of fantastic games, and bonus features of a great video game maker.

If you enjoyed any previous games by Edmund, this is definitely worth a shot.
You'll fall in love with games like Aether and become hopelessly addicted to something like Spewer or Meat Boy. There's plenty of variety here, with interesting ideas and mechanics in every title, all tied together with Edmund's unique aesthetic.
The game is filled with unlock-able extras and features that show you behind the scenes and even allow you to play alpha versions of games like Aether & Spewer. This is truly a collection for the fans, but also for people who perhaps want to try out some earlier work from one of the makers of Super Meat Boy.

I got this collection mostly because of Indie Game the movie. Mcmillen speaks a lot about his first games and i was curious.
Well i'm not disappointed because every game of this bundle is really interesting. Edmund Mcmillen has a very unique universe and original ideas.
If you're curious and you want to experience something new this collection definitly worth its price !

This collection is basically 8 games from the creator of Super Meat Boy, including his old prototype for Super Meat Boy, called Meat Boy. I personally love that game, and it's fun to have played it in it's early stage. If you got a few spare dollars pick this game up.
