TxK. Bought it last night (PS+ discount) Took me a few goes, but now I'm getting the hang on it! :)

I got my Vita off Ebay, last summer practically unused for £100. It is a FANTASTIC machine! I don't buy many retail releases, ( I still need to get Tearaway), but the digital 'Indie' stuff is second to none.
I also recently bought Olli Olli and am looking forward to Steamworld Dig.

It pretends to be T2K for a good few levels and then turns into Space Giraffe :D

You can now buy the soundtrack if that's your thing... 18 tracks for £3.

Just to be honest for a moment: I bought it (happily) full price, then it became half price literally a week or two later - and now it's free on PS+ (which I have).

It's a great game, but that's a dangerous business model - not sure I would buy the next Minter game now at launch. I'm more than happy to pay a fair price for games as creatives like Jeff deserve a return on their labour - but this sort of thing killed IOS gaming for me.

For Clarity: I'm not accusing Jeff of anything, or being negative toward him - these things may well be out of his hands
