UK games industry charity, GamesAid, are putting on a show for those who enjoy the human act of laughing. To help, they've assembled a group of professionals whose entire job consists of making other humans convulse, chuckle, guffaw and in extreme cases shed liquid cheer from their eyeballs. These people employ wit, charm, snark and sometimes silly faces to encourage joyful juddering, and will ply their trade on April 15 at the Picadilly Circus Comedy Store in London to raise money for GamesAid's portfolio of children's charities.
Get Games have teamed up with the charity GamesAid to bring you another great deal on indie games, satisfying the duel need to get cheap stuff and do a good deed. Little Big Bunch 2 works like an inverted Humble Bundle. The price is fixed at a meagre £6 donation, but for that you can pick which five games you want from their selection.
You know what would really tie the room together? No, not a rug! A life-size statue of Connor Kenway from Assassin's Creed 3, of course. You could stand him by the window to ward off burglars, Home Alone-style, or just quietly position him in unexpected places around the house - basements, cupboards, toilets - to wage a campaign of psychological terror against your housemates. The many uses of a life-size Connor Kenway statue are now within your reach thanks to this year's GamesAid Elite Xmas charity auction!
PCG's publishers are proud sponsors of GamesAid, a charitable collective from the UK games industry which primarily helps disabled and disadvantaged young people in the UK. And this year we're delighted to be helping to auction off all manner of gaming goodies: a Burnout race-suit, cheerleader outfit and chicken costume, all worn and signed by David Hasselhoff, Adidas F50 Boots signed by footballman Gareth Bale, a Fallout 3 special edition Penny Arcade poster, and much more. All contributions go towards a very fine cause, allowing you to feel a warm glow of moral integrity, even as you leap screeching from a cupboard dressed as a chicken. Hit the jump for the full list of items and their eBay links.
'Tis the season for increasingly excellent indie bundles. The LittleBIGbunch sale has gone live now on Get Games. It contains the excellent turn based strategy, Frozen Synapse, plaformer Explodemon, Serious Sam Double D, Munch's Oddysee and New Star Soccer. You can use the payment slider to decide how much cash you want to lay down (or write the number into the payment box), and then decide how your payment gets divided up between the developers and GamesAid.
If you're on the hunt for more great deals, the rumoured Humble Indie Bundle 4 went live earlier today. That includes Jamestown, Bit.Trip Runner, Super Meat Boy, Shank, and NightSky. If you pay more than the average donation, you'll also get Cave Story+ and Gratuitous Space Battles. Buy both packs and you'll have plenty to play over the Xmas holidays.
