I can really recommend Braid, Osmos and Machinarium. Three great games that are all totally unique!

So there!

I don't even think I would pay $30 for those games. Way too much still IMO.

That's the point, pay what every you want. Average price from Windows users right now is about $6. Personally I would place worth about $15.00

Osmos is actually pretty good, sure most of them are side scrolls, but it's actually not to bad for time killers.
I picked them up to waste time on my netbook during the ferries + cars over holiday vacation

The first pack eventually had a steam activation code emailed out to purchasers. Perhaps this one will follow suit.

Steam is a type of DRM. They clearly said no DRM whatsoever.
They give you key to a place to download the games. And that's it.
