The Indie Royale Debut Bundle Is Unleashed
Indie Royale released their Debut Bundle this weekend, giving gamers a set of six games with flexible pricing.
This batch of games features titles that have only recently been released, thus the name of the bundle.
The Debut Bundle includes:
- Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller - Episode 1: The Hangman - This adventure game from Phoenix Online Studios is described on the site as "an adult-level adventure game full of interesting mechanics, a professional voice cast, great music, and a compelling heroine." Wow. Those are a few things we can definitely get behind. The game looks moody, complex, and promises to pack a lot of thrills, making it worth whatever price you pay for the bundle alone. The addition of the prequel comic is also a bonus!
- McDroid - Elefantopia's new cel-shaded real-time strategy game tasks you with defending yourself from hordes of aliens. Not an original idea, we know, but the execution looks mighty impressive. What's more is that the soundtrack is included in the bundle, so you can take the sounds of McDroid wherever you go.
- Master of Alchemy - Rise of the Mechanologists - This game from Darkwave Games is a puzzler that uses physics and clever mechanics to keep you glued to your monitor for hours.
- Cloudphobia - Rockin' Android brings us a horizontal shoot 'em up (SHMUP) that hopefully plays as beautifully as it looks. You're supposed to beat the clock and defeat the boss in order to save your mothership, but we're just interested in flying by really fast and destroying enemies with cool weapons.
- Wimp: Who Stole My Pants? - This platformer from Flexile Studio made its debut on mobile devices a few months ago, but now it's found a new home on Mac and PC. The weirdly cute game sports over 80 levels of platforming goodness and comes with the soundtrack.
- 6180 The Moon - Turtle Cream and PokPoong Games bring us this platformer in which it's impossible for the player to fall since the top and bottom screens are connected. It's like playing a simplified, retro version of Portal!
Now, the great thing about these Indie Royale bundles is that you can pay whatever you want (though there is a minimum that depends on how much others spend) and it goes straight back to the developers. So not only are you getting a bunch of great games for relatively cheap, but you're also making sure that the developers get what they deserve.
If you pay at least $8.00, you'll also get your hands on Fearofdark's debut chiptune album, Motorway, available in MP3 or FLAC.
The current minimum, as of this writing, is $4.10, which is a price you can't beat for six great games and the bonuses that they include.
