Achieving Consistency
One of the more challenging aspects of managing a team of developers is maintaining standards and style of coding. It may seem trivial but even small things like an individual developer's tab setting can quickly lead to check-in chaos and code review hell. ...

Pay what you want to get Papo & Yo, To the Moon, Joe Danger 2: The Movie and Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien -- all while supporting vital charities! Pay more than the average price and you'll also get Surgeon Simulator 2013, Reus, HOARD, Strike Suit Zero and Toki Tori 2+. That's nine games - wow!
