    Word!

    Going on a long train journey tomorrow, I wondered if anyone had any recommendations of any nice time sink games I can download for the journey for my laptop...

    I'm pretty skint, so was after a nice cheap indie game or two - and there's no internet, so offline only, no DRM - which includes steam as it always prevents me logging in, even in offline mode.

    I like an RPG (not japanese style preferably), was thinking project zomboid... anything else?

    Thanks EG!

    Both pay what you want.

    Humble indie bundle looks good - torchlight being the main appeal, but I've done that!!

    @Metalfish I totally missed seeing the IndieGala bundle! Will buy it once I find out what the two secret games are.

    I think I read somewhere that the two free games are Alien Breed 3 and another Worms game.

    After reading the review I reckon ill get ftl for the return journey. Most of the indie bundles look a little - I dunno, throwaway. Not to do them a disservice, they look great and excellent value for money - but I'm after another torchlight or slightly bigger game.

    Dwarf fortress looks a bit intimidating!

    Its only a 5 hour game but can I recommend To The Moon? Also, you can download beneath a steel sky for free from gog.com which is a classic point a click adventure if you like that sort of game

    Thanks guys, return journey tomorrow. Going to try ftl, and save ottd for when I can play online.

    Beneath a steel sky is a classic which I've played through a few times - good to know its free forthose who want it.

    Let's keep the thread going with good train friendly games!
