Below is the rest of the games featured in this bundle. In addition, you’ll receive the Super Saucy Sausage DLC for Swords & Soldiers, and the soundtracks for Cute Things Dying Violently, Bunny Must Die!, Swords & Soldiers, and Lunar Flight. I thoroughly enjoy Swords & Soldiers (side-scrolling RTS) and Sequence (RPG, DDR-esque like game), so I definitely recommend the bundle for those games. For more information about the games, I’ve attached the blog post detailing about the bundle’s debut along with the trailer.

Indie Royale blog post:

Summer is over and fall is on the horizon; for many it’s time to go back to school! But don’t let the “back-to-school blues” get you down, Indie Royale’s got you covered with the Back to School Bundle featuring seven great indie games, including an exclusive debut for Bunny Must Die! from Rockin’ Android!

First up is a game where you can re-write history while you are studying it – Ronimo Games’ side-scrolling real-time strategy game, Swords & Soldiers with the awesome Super Saucy Sausage Fest DLC, available for Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. [NOTE: Super Saucy Sausage Fest DLC is not available for Linux users – apologies!] This beautifully crafted game offers humorous wit and solid game-play while you take control of the brutal Vikings, the devious Aztecs or the crafty Chinese in their global quest to win the favor of the Gods. The Super Saucy Sausage Fest DLC offers ten new campaigns, an improved challenge mode, and plenty of new spells and units. GameSpot praises Swords & Soldiers: “its simple controls and abounding good humour are likely to engage even those who have never dipped their controllers into the strategy pool.”

Next up is a space simulation game that’s sure to inform your studies about the moon landing from Shovsoft, Lunar Flight available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. This full 3D game is a re-imagining of the classic Atari game Lunar Lander and offers mission types involving transporting cargo, acquiring data at survey locations and locating lost cargo in a 3D world. DIYGamer raves about Lunar Flight, stating that it “sets the bar for Lunar Lander-likes (…) Shovsoft have created a fresh-faced and wonderfully playable space simulator that I urge everyone to try.”

As if that weren’t enough, also featured is an exclusive debut that’s sure to get your brain working with exploration-based platformer challenges, Bunny Must Die: Chelsea and the 7 Devils available for for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. This hilarious Japanese ‘Metroidvania’-esque game is brought to you by Platine Dispositif and Rockin’ Android, and features Bunny as she explores the Devil’s’ Labyrinth, using magical items like a Sylph Shooter and Hyper Heels to manipulate the fabric of time, solve puzzles and survive. You can’t miss Bunny Must Die! which offers a comical style, hand-drawn 2-D graphics, a charming storyline and an unlockable character.

Also included is a clever game that’ll stimulate both the right and left sides of your brain by offering rhythm action and role-playing-game spellcasting — Sequence from Iridium Studios, available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. You’ll play Ky, after he awakens imprisoned in a tower and has to ascend 7 levels of the tower guided with the help of a mysterious girl named Naia. With a standout in-game soundtrack that you fight along in time to, TruePCGaming praises Sequence for its dialogue developed by Jason Wishnov calling it “one of the funniest, well-written scripts that has ever graced a computer game.”

Additionally, this bundle includes two more games from Rockin’ Android never before available in a bundle – the hidden Japanese shmup gems Flying Red Barrel – Diary of a Little Aviator and Qlione, available for for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Orange_Juice’s Flying Red Barrel offers colorful graphics and innovative scoring mechanics not to mention bullet hell shooting that’s deliciously violent. Shindenken’s Qlione is a unique 2-D shooter game that’s based on a lone amoeba and is equally challenging yet optically stunning, offering psychedelic vector backgrounds and gorgeous, splashy explosions!

Last up is a violent yet disturbingly cute game that offers a welcome distraction from studying, Cute Things Dying Violently — brought to you by ApathyWorks (along with its OST!) available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. This goofy yet warped title, previously a critical hit on Xbox Live Indie Games, offers 60 mind-bending levels, half-dozen unlockable special levels, and according to Joystiq is a “delightful puzzle game” that you’ll wanna try!

Steam continues to support indie games by introducing a new bundle, the Swedish Indie bundle, along with a discount on the Red Faction franchise


Steam’s really promoting the indie games lately. Before there was the British indie bundle, now here’s a trip to Sweden! This new bundle features a whopping ten games from Swedish indie developers.

The bundle is a huge 81% off making this original individually totaled price $77.90 for all the games into a dwindling amount of just $14.99 (81% off) for the ten games. If indie games isn’t your thing, you can also pick up the Red Faction franchise for 75% off, making the entire franchise purchasable for just $14.99 as well. If you’re missing some games from the franchise, each game is not more than $4.99 with the lowest price being $2.49 for Red Faction and Red Faction II. Red Faction: Armageddon Path to War DLC is available for just $1.49, while the base game is just $4.99. Pick up these deals before they end on Thursday at 7pm EST.

Steam discounts S: S&S EP with Game of Thrones bundle in the first September midweek madness


Steam for the first midweek madness of September has discounted an amazing indie game, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery along with Cyanide Studios’ Game of Thrones Bundle. Game of Thrones Bundle is available at $23.80 (66% off). The bundle includes A Game of Thrones – Genesis, the 2011 strategy game release, and Game of Thrones, the 2012 RPG game release. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP reduced by 50% off and purchasable for just $3.99 that is an absolute steal since the Steam purchase also comes with the wonderful Jim Guthrie soundtrack. Tomorrow the sale ends at 7pm EST.

Here’s a mini description taken from one of my former posts:

I actually have S:S&S EP on both my PC and my iPad. Words cannot describe how amazing S:S&S EP is. The pixel-art is absolutely lovely as Jim Guthrie’s wonderful musical plays in the background of your adventure as this warrior girl who tries to understand the mysterious Megatome. The point and click adventure game is simplistic in that you don’t have to worry about your deaths or your inventory for that matter. It is a casual-style game that allows you to focus on the taking in the entire game through the amazing visuals and wonderfully humorous dialogue. Also Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP will be available in Japan on June 21st and a new remix soundtrack created by many famous Japanese composers will be available to purchase on the same day for $5. So if the game and its soundtrack isn’t enough, you have an amazing reworked soundtrack of Jim Guthrie’s innovative music on its way.

Torchlight 2 release date finally announced


Torchlight 2 isn’t coming out in the summer, but it’s certainly a lot closer now with a definitive release date. Torchlight 2 will be hitting PCs on September 20th. A much anticipated sequel to the indie RPG is receiving a lot more content than the original. The RPG, which has been highly compared to Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo, will certainly be an amazing sequel that has undoubtedly taken flaws from the original and its Diablo counterpart and improved them. Check out the chart below to see just how much the developers added into Torchlight 2. Also new features will include: online or LAN co-op multiplayer, four new classes, and Steam Workshop support. A Mac version will be released sometime in the future after the PC release.

Steam discounts British indie game bundle and The Walking Dead; The Walking Dead: Episode 3 – Long Road Ahead available tomorrow


This midweek madness sale is pretty awesome. Steam has discounted Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead to 40% off, making it a wonderful $14.99 for all five episodes. This is undoubtedly due to the upcoming release of Episode 3 – Long Road Ahead, which has released today for PlayStation Network. However, other gamers will have to wait one more day for its release to Xbox Live Arcade, PC, and Mac. In addition, tomorrow Episode 2 – Starved For Help will release on iOS. You can pick up the bundle of the game that includes all episodes upon release for just $14.99 as well from the iTunes App Store. If you wish to purchase it individually, then the episode will cost $4.99. I thoroughly have enjoyed the first two episodes and highly recommend the game to anyone who’s interested in it. Picking it up for just $14.99 is a great deal.

Also there’s the British Indie Game Bundle that features six games: Defcon, Eufloria, Frozen Synapse, Gratuitous Space Battles, Revenge of the Titans, and Ben There, Dan That! and Time Gentlemen, Please! Special Edition Double Pack. The bundle is available for just $9.99 (75% off).

Both these deals will end as always on Thursday at 7pm EST.

Indie Royale’s Gone Fishin’ Bundle has launched


Indie Royale is once again back and this time, they have Gone Fishin’. This new bundle includes six games going with the pay-what-you-want model, but with a minimum pricing of $5.52 at the moment. It offers Sol: Exodus, All Zombies Must Die!, Cubemen (first three all available through Steam), Squids, Platformance: Castle Pain, and Platformance: Temple Death. Every game except All Zombies Must Die! is available through Desura and DRM-free downloads. In addition, Cubemen and Squids are the only available games for Mac. Also upon purchasing the bundle, you’ll receive VectorGeddon, its PC debut, and Sol:Exodus‘ artbook and official soundtrack. Check out the video and official blog post below that each highlights the games included and look at the official website here. There’s still seven days left to claim your bundle now. Oh and if you pay $8 or more, you’ll receive Floex’s aka Tomáš Dvořák, who created the Machinarium soundtrack to Amanita Design’s point-and-click game, wonderful album, Pocustones.

The first bait on the hook is Seamless Entertainment’s Unreal Engine-powered 3D space-action game: SOL: Exodus now available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. Save humanity from the dying sun by finding a new home, and blast your way through multiple missions while enjoying easy-to-grasp Wing Commander-esque controls and core gameplay alongside an involved story. Destructoid calls SOL: Exodus an “accessible, exciting spacefighter sim” and suggests that “(a)nyone looking for a good space dogfight should feel obliged to give it a try.”

If that isn’t enough to reel you in, Doublesix Games’ undead-heavy topdown shooter All Zombies Must Die! will surely tempt you to bite. Available for Windows on Steam, this game offers a smattering of role-playing and strategy features, an unexpected cartoon-like art style and witty dialogue filled with clever pop-culture references. For those who played All Zombies Must Die! on the PSN or XBLA, you’ll be pleased to note that the PC release offers relief to zombie swarming by adding a new ‘treacle’ mechanic, “which will allow players to wade through otherwise impassible zombie crowds.”

Also offered in this tempting bundle are two games from 3 Sprockets, led by Cubemen, an acclaimed tower defense title now available for Windows and Mac on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. Play out the epic battle between red and blue by placing pixel men on the board to defend your base across 35 levels. The Skirmish mode offers what Gamezebo calls “a refreshing twist on tower defense” where players get to play against the AI or in multiplayer mode across 25 additional levels. Also from 3 Sprockets is bonus game VectorGeddon available for Windows and Mac as a DRM-free standalone exclusively on Indie Royale. It’s a fast-paced Missile Command style game where players spawn missile silos around the planet, and target incoming asteroids to destroy them in order to keep the population of Earth from hitting zero.

Suitably included in this ‘fishy’ bundle is Squids from The Game Bakers, available for Windows and Mac on Desura and DRM-free. Offering a clever mix of action strategy and RPG, this game is based on saving the world of the squids from an evil black ooze that threatens to destroy civilization by building a team of heroes to fight epic turn-based battles against corrupted crabs and shrimps. Touch Arcade calls the iOS versions of Squids “kinetic, clean, charming, and particularly streamlined” and says the game “has a ton of character, fun, and unique constructs to share.”

Last on the fishing lure are two PC debuts from Magiko Gaming: Platformance: Castle Pain and Platformance: Temple Death, both devious side-scrolling ‘masocore’ platformers available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Originally developed for Xbox Live Indie Games, these games are tough as nails but satisfying to beat. Platformance: Castle Pain stars a heavily armored knight who must overcome various challenging platform goodness to save the princess. Also debuting is Platformance: Temple Death, which is based on saving famous starlet Grace Belly by navigating though traps and challenges as an adventurer with a hat and whip. Indie Gamer Chick notes that the series is “pretty to look at, sound wonderful, and (…) offers a legitimate challenge without going out of their way to be unfair.”

Finally, those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Gone Fishin’ Bundle will get ‘Pocustone’ the debut album from Floex (aka Tomas Dvorak), the Czech musician who created the lauded Machinarium soundtrack. This critically acclaimed album bridges relatively isolated genres such as nu-jazz, electronic and modern contemporary music, and appears in a bundle for the first time here.

Indie Royale has launched their July Jubilee Bundle


Indie Royale is back with the July Jubilee Bundle and brings six games for your pleasure. The games that are included are: Puzzle Agent, Geneforge Saga, Oniken, Mutant Storm Reloaded, Swift☆Stitch, and Unepic. Puzzle Agent along with the Geneforge Saga and Mutant Storm Reloaded are all available on Steam and Desura. The other games, Oniken, Swift☆Stitch, and Unepic are available on Desura. Each game is playable on Windows; however, Puzzle Agent, Geneforge Saga,  and Swift☆Stitch are the only ones available on Mac. The current pricing is set at the minimum of $5.46. Pick up your bundle here before it ends in less than seven days. Also here’s a detailed description of the games after the trailer.

First up is a super-smart indie adventure with a puzzle twist: Telltale Games’ Puzzle Agent. Downloadable for Windows and Mac on Steam, Desura and DRM-free, this game uses indie comic creator Graham Annable’s unique art style to reveal FBI Agent, Nelson Tethers, who is on his first mission for the U.S. Department of Puzzle Research. Check out the game that AdventureGamers dubs “a charming lite adventure filled with quirky characters and challenging puzzles that anyone can enjoy solving”, featuring 30+ puzzles spanning math, logic and spatial thinking.

Next up are five old-school, open-world RPGs brought to you by Spiderweb Software: the Geneforge Saga, now available for Windows on Steam and Windows and Mac on Desura and DRM-free. Set in an alternate sci-fi/fantasy universe, DIY Gamer explains of the old-school RPG: “The whole series is very highly regarded, with each game giving you a rough overarching goal, but lets you go about it however you see fit, developing your own character and your personal squad of mutant minions to tackle the challenges.” So what are you waiting for?

Also offered in this bundle is a much buzzed-about 2D platformer inspired by 8-bit action games from the NES era: Oniken, available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Play a ninja named Zuku as you slash and hack your way through a dystopian future and battle a dominant military organization of cybernetic warriors known as the Oniken. Offering uber challenging boss fights, a campy sense of humor and great old school 8 bit music, this game can’t be missed. Destructoid celebrates Oniken for its presentation: “Oniken feels like a project holistically designed around one person’s love of ’80s action film and ’90s anime imports.”

Included in this bundle is Pom Pom’s critically acclaimed psychedelic shmup Mutant Storm Reloaded available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. Offering over 89 (!) levels of frenetic fun, each level starts off easy, but quickly works up to large, tentacle creatures and regenerating enemies that are require skill to beat. You can’t miss this game, recognized by Eurogamer for being “thrilling, constantly surprising, and possessed of a wonky beauty that makes it unforgettable. … It’s a bit like finding yourself in the midst of a parasite disco staged within the womb of a jelly baby.”

Also “marching” in this parade of great indie games are two games from Sophie Houlden: Swift*Stitch available for Windows and Mac on Desura and DRM-free and a bonus game that was created during the Indie Buskers game jam: Rose and Time available for Windows and Mac as a DRM Free standalone. Swift*Stitch offers a plethora of levels, and this game challenges you *not* to press buttons to power your ship but to press the right buttons at the right moment to make it to the end of the maze. Included is a trancelike soundtrack from Aeronic that nicely contrasts to Swift*Stitch’s razor-focused play. Also included is Rose and Time, a clever time travel stealth game offering ten levels with a catch: you have to make sure the past you doesn’t see the present you, because that would create a paradox.

Rounding out the bundle is Francisco Téllez de Meneses’ labor of love, Unepic available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Unepic cleverly combines an RPG with a platformer and offers a quirky sense of humor throughout. Play as Daniel, an average gamer/geek who gets teleported to a fantasy castle while using the restroom during a D&D Game. Destructoid calls Unepic a “unique gaming experience” suggesting that this game is definitely worth a try if you “enjoy running around in castles, jumping around platforms and figuring out the best way to slay monsters.” Also available to July Jubilee Bundle purchasers are the “Royale Ring” (offering extra health and experience in each game) and 100 “Unepic Credits” (available via a downloadable key) that you can use to grab special in-game items.

Finally, those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the July Jubilee Bundle will get ‘Insert’ from Japanese chiptune legend Prof.SAKAMOTO, a $7 value on its own. This clever concept album, about a future where inhabitants have game cartridge slots on the top of their heads, comes from an artist also famous for his unique Final Fantasy piano performances on YouTube.
