Indie Royale is back with a Back to School Bundle


In this new bundle from Indie Royale, you can pick up seven awesome games for just $5.53 at the moment. As always if you pay $8.00 or more you can receive a chiptune album. This time it’s minusbaby’s BIAS album which you can take a listen to here. But onto the games, the main highlight of the bundle is the Indie Royale exclusive debut of Bunny Must Die! Chelsea And The 7 Devils. The game by Rockin Android will be released next month, therefore if you’re dying to play the game early, you can pick it up now and receive some other games to boot. 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!

Because We May’s indie game sale has officially launched and features tons of discounted games for your playing pleasure. Many games are discounted on various platforms. Check out the Steam Specials page which currently has 100 games/DLCs on sale including Civilization V.

Because We May (concept and production is by Ron Carmel, 2D Boy – World of Goo) will be discounting their games from May 24th to June 1st. The idea is to show that developers have the ability to control their games’ prices by lowering them when they wish to do so, such as like on the last week of May. Discounts will occur on the iOS App Store, Mac App Store, Google Play, Direct from Developer, Other Stores as well as Steam.

Because We May has gotten support from studios Introversion (Defcon, Uplink, etc.), Team Meat (The Binding of Isaac), Dejobaan (AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome), Gaijin Games (Bit.Trip Runner, etc.), Double Fine (Costume Quest, Stacking, etc.), Hothead (DeathSpank, Penny Arcade Adventures, etc.), Mode 7 (Frozen Synapse) and more; but those are just the games available from Steam. There’s still other games for different platforms which will be on sale.

Because We May states on their official website:

“We believe that developers should have the freedom to price their games how they like, without interference from the online stores that sell the games. “Why? Because it allows us to promote our games more freely, as we are doing here! We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.”
