I guess I'm not surprised. I noticed that one I clicked on was playable right there in the browser. I didn't notice others, but game jam entries are usually freeware, unless the developer keeps working on it.

I'm currently planning on playing the Mortician one and Airheart, and maybe Stellar Commanders if the Mac version gets to Steam one day.

Apple does have an exclusivity clause for Apple Arcade—for the macOS versions, only.
Interesting. Since I'm interested in that particular game I'll redeem the steam key; maybe the Mac version will show up at a later date.

EDIT: Clicking through some of those GDC bundle games is worth it because a couple I've checked so far are 100% off.
Off in what sense? The descriptions are wrong?

I clicked on a few in the low tier. In that random sample all of them were short games, mostly created for one game jam or another.

Looking at the $10 tier: Stellar Commanders looks pretty cool, but it's Windows only. Or is it?!  Now THIS is interesting: "The game is available for Mac on Apple Arcade exclusively." I thought Apple Arcade had some kind of exclusivity clause?!
Airheart looks fun, I might get the bundle just to support them and try it.

I'm not curious enough to try lots of these, but more power to them.. My dad (who is very well read) has recently taken up reading self-published $0-$2 SF books on kindle. He doesn't mind that many of them aren't very good, he is enjoying discovering the gems among them and the freshness of not knowing what to expect from each book. But he has more free time than I do!

I suspect some of those are 32-bit (Psychonauts, Brutal Legend). But even subtracting those and the Windows-only games, there's still plenty. I'll probably get it just for Superhot.

Sure its better than no cert at all, but is false security any better than no security?

Since its better than no cert at all, you've answered your own question. :-)
