If you can tear yourselves away from the Steam sale counter for just a minute, we bring news of a different sort of countdown, for the perhaps aptly named Super Shock Bundle. You're probably rolling your eyes right now at the presence of yet another indie bundle, but here's why you should consider rolling them back, as painful as that might be: the Super Shock Bundle will feature thirteen games, including VVVVVV, Home, Thirty Flights of Loving, Probability 0 and Cortex Command. The other thing to consider is that the offer's only open for seven of your Earth hours, starting today at 5PM UK time (that's 12PM Eastern Standard Time).

Probability 0: an endless roguelike platformer that wants you dead

Tom Sykes at

The game takes its title from your chances of survival, so don't expect to come out of Probability 0 in one piece. This shadowy platformer is set in one endlessly scrolling screen filled with spiky things and enemies. Kill them to level up and earn new abilities; die and you'll have to start all over again. Thankfully, that shouldn't be as painful as it sounds. Like Spelunky, the game's layout is procedurally generated, the pit and its contents changing each time you descend into the abyss.
