Indie Gala has launched a campaign to help the Vancouver game development community, and it has enlisted help from some Canadian friends. The name-your-own price game bundle is offering seven games, including Mass Effect 2 from Alberta-based BioWare and Shank 2 from Vancouver's own Klei Enterainment.

Paying the bare minimum of a penny on the Indie Gala will get you Rebuild. If you're slightly less of a cheapskate, you can pay $1 or more to get Kill Fun Yeah!, Shadowgrounds, and Zombie Driver HD. Finally, if you pay more than the average (approximately $6, as of the time of writing), you'll also net Gimbal, Shank 2, Mass Effect 2, and DLC for Zombie Driver. Two more mystery games will be unveiled next week: one for the lower tier, and one for the higher tier. Both will be unlocked if you've already paid. Most of the games activate on Steam or Desura, while ME2 activates on Origin.

Revenue from the bundles will go towards scholarships for indie developers through the Launch Academy local incubator, and for game entrepreneur Matt Toner's political campaign.

The Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle, the latest in the line of pay-what-you-want indie packs, will expire in a few hours. If you haven't picked it up yet, you have a handful of hours to chip in your money and pick up three games. Donating more than the average nets you the Frozenbyte bundle as well.

As of the time of writing, the Bundle has generated more than $1,081,000, with the single highest payment standing at $4,200. The average payment is $4.84, so only a little more than that would grant you eight indie games. That line-up includes Frozen Synapse, SpaceChem, and Trauma. The Frozenbyte extras include Trine, Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds Survivor, Splot, and prototype game Jack Claw.

Announcement - Valve
The Frozenbyte Collection is now 85% off until Thursday at 4PM Pacific Time!

Act now to take advantage of huge savings for three great games: Trine, Shadowgrounds, and Shadowgrounds Survivor! All three titles are available for Mac and PC!
