    Local Steam users can no longer purchase these games

    Following Steam’s migration to the use of our local currency, the Rand, it was noted that a number of games are no longer purchasable.

    Fortunately there are no major Steam sales going on at the moment.

    It's kind of ironic that Desktop Dungeons is not available locally.

    Edit: Crap, beaten to it.

    In the grand scheme of things, otherwise known as Steam standards, it's hardly a large sale. Steam Sales generally include hundreds, if not thousands of titles.

    Though I do appreciate the feedback nonetheless and have added it to the original post <3

    At least newer local titles like STASIS and Broforce are unaffected.

    So how will this affect bundles, like those purchased from Humble Bundle of one or more of those titles aren't available, will they still be redeemable?

    Yes they are. You can also still buy from any of the other stores. The games aren't region restricted, they just haven't been priced yet.
