If I buy the Steam bundle to get Avernum 2, will I be able to give out the other games as gifts?


Recommended Posts

So Steam bundle is on sale cheaper than just buying Avernum 2 separately. I have all the other games. Will I be able to give out the other games as gifts or once I download Crystal Souls will the whole thing be locked to my account?

I just checked by putting the bundle into my cart, and sure enough, Steam warned me that I already owned Avernum 2: Crystal Souls on Steam and would not receive an extra copy if I bought the bundle. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

That happened to me before and it seems like the 'bundle' is treated like a single game. Once opened, you will get the games at an instant, compared to when it's gifted individually; which you can keep all others and open AV:2 for yourself, sadly, Steam's smart enough for that.

I would hold off on buying A:CS at the moment. The way Steam sales work means that it's possible for one (or more) SW game to get an even bigger discount. Whilst it's cheap at the moment, if it's selected for a flash sale or is unlocked through the monster game, it could end up going even lower.

I saw it featured at a 70% discount in the Monster Summer Game deal window; it's now dropped back to a 25% discount (while the bundle remains at a 70% discount, making it cheaper than A2:CS on its own). I'm not sure if I clicked through from the summer sale frontpage to the actual store page; it's possible that the sale page displayed the wrong discount. That happens sometimes.

I would be very, VERY surprised if there isn't a Steam sale for Spiderweb Software games this season. While they are no where near the most popular games, Valve is notorious for wanting your money.They'll probably throw something on at least one of them. Anything to get the money from your (virtual) wallets into their (physical) pockets.

Yeah, there was one. The whole collection is 70% off, and as Lilith pointed out, Avernum 2: Crystal Souls also saw a big discount for a little while.

 

I'm not quite sure why you quoted me, either, since I said there's a good chance some SW games would see bigger discounts.

Because I was expanding apon the chance that there would be one from experience, and I was too lazy/tired to read anything past your post. Honestly, spidweb is notorious from repetition in its answers because of people who don't read the whole thread. Why are you so surprised that I did it for once :p
