Got the Indie Mega Pack (Trine, Braid, Goo, etc) - Where 2 start?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
All together it has:
Audiosurf, Braid, The Maw, Osmos, Shattered Horizon, Trine, World of Goo, Zeno Clash.

I've heard great things about Audiosurf, Braid, and Goo, good things about the others except Shattered Horizon which doesn't sound like my bag, but it was <$3 a game for the other seven, so ...

Which one should I play first?

Play Zeno Clash. Loved the art direction in that one.

Braid, World of Goo, Zeno Clash, Audiosurf is fun but like an off and on game.
Trine and Braid may consume most of your time.

Thanks guys

I decided to start with Osmos since it installed fastest. It's actually a pretty cool game ... sort of like Asteroids. The music is really chill ambient stuff, but the action gets kinda fast-paced at times. Gives you an idea of what life was like for an amoeba in the primordial soup of a billion years ago. It's all about conservation of energy, and eat-or-be-eaten.

Think I'll try Braid next since it's gotten so many great accolades, then Trine, then Zeno.

$20 for all these games was a pretty cool deal I think

Braid is relatively short imo. I beat it in one sitting. World of Goo is a little bit longer.
For me, Osmos is a chill game, for when I feel like playing something slower.
Trine is somewhat long and Audiosurf for those random times I want to play something really quick and stop.

Didn't really like Zeno Clash and haven't played The Maw or Shattered Horizon.

I was a big fan of Trine. Took about 7 or 8 hours to finish on medium the first time through. The environments are beautiful and the game is just a lot of fun.

I'd say Braid next, as it's another decent length game, 5 hours or so the first time, according to most.

Audiosurf is really a play on and off type of game, IMO. There's no "real" campaign or anything, so it's nice to just pick up and put down. World of Goo is much the same way, at least to me, although, it does have a story, and you can easily sit down and play it for hours.
