The Prairie Dog Bundle | Indie Royale | Beat the minimum (fluctuates)
A mystery game will be added to the bundle over the next few days.
This is exactly the kind of indie bundle we like to see: good games that haven't got anywhere near as much exposure as they should. From the epic Baldur's Gate-esque Avadon to the insanely gorgeous Waveform, you'll have lots of fun here, and even get one of the most cruelly underrated games of 2012 (poor old Derrick).
Well, okay, perhaps War Of The Human Tanks is an acquired taste. Bring Pocky.
The Indie Royale Evolved Bundle is an eclectic mix of genres and game experiences. A fluctuating (though always tiny) minimum amount of money will net you the compelling RPG Krater, fantastic puzzler Unmechanical, a surreal experimental horror title and more.
Well worth a punt, depending on how big your current backlog is...
The Replay Bundle is worth it just for Gemini Rue, frankly. Once again, Indie Royale have put together a meaty package of games, with a constantly fluctuating minimum price point determined by the number of previous bundle buyers and their generosity. The extras are also worthy of note, especially the 56-track 8-Bit Weapon album, which we can't stop listening to. Seriously, Bits With Byte has been on loop for the past half hour.
Another season, another bundle from Indie Royale. The Winter collection consists of Greed Corp., Hamlet, BIT.TRIP RUNNER, Conquest of Elysium 3, Leave Home, and They Breathe, making it a rather well rounded bundle filled with some of the finest boutique titles around.
At the time of writing, the current minimum sits at £3.35, but for those that pay more than £5.06 will get the additional bonus of digital copies of soundtracks from Leave Home and They Breathe, as well as a copy of the chiptune-jazz album “Bluescreen” from Protodome. If you haven't already succumb to bundle fatigue (or already own most of the titles here) it's certainly a look for just over a fiver. Thanks to benleslie5 @ HUKD!
Indie Royale certainly know how to deliver a great bundle, and the Getaway Collection is absolutely spectacular. You'll net two games we've already rated 8/10 - the sensational shooter Waves and point 'n' click contender Da New Guys along with some other indie greats. You'll even get Super Amazing Wagon Adventure, which was previously only available on the Xbox Live Indie marketplace.
As always, you'll have to beat the fluctuating minimum price to get involved. Considering the quality of the games on offer, you definitely should - if not pay a little extra to thank the developers for their toil.
Here be games: a mix of the sublime and the ridiculously hectic. Frenetic shooter AZMD! rubs shoulders with adorable strategy game SQUIDS, a Galactica-style space sim, an artillery title... talk about variety.
Brilliantly, the PLATFORMANCE series has also made its way to PC. It's a platforming and level design masterclass, arriving just in time for Platformines...
You know the Indie Royale drill by now. Beat the fluctuating minimum price to get involved.
The Indie Royale July Jubilee bundle is now live, folks, and ready to spoil us with six games for a silly price. This month's indie collaboration includes excellent minigame adventure Puzzle Agent, five great RPGs courtesy of the Geneforge Saga, a seriously fun 'Metroidvania' experience in Unepic and more. To put the cherry on top, hypnotic experiment Swift*Stitch is probably worth the fluctuating price of admission by itself.
As always, to get involved, you'll have to beat a constantly-fluctuating minimum price that increases with demand. Get in early for a discount, or voluntarily beat the average price for an extra chiptune album.
Indie Royale are increasingly known for their... wait, I don't need to introduce this.
Look at all those great indie games! Look at that tiny price! It's go time.
You'll get RTS games, SHMUPS, some awesome Japanese titles, Serious Sam 2 and even entrance into the Airmech beta. Just in case you don't know, the Indie Royale minimum price fluctuates throughout the promotion - and it tends to trend upwards. The sooner you get it, the better.
Good old Indie Royale have another treat for us. Beating the constantly-fluctuating minimum price (currently around £3) will net you the brilliant puzzler 1000 Amps, procedurally-generated shooter Dead Pixels, the lovely Lasercat, tense assassination sim The Ship and more. Well worth a punt for sheer variety as well as quality.
If you're willing to chip in £7, you'll also get a chiptune album into the bargain.
Is EA's slightly disingenuous "indie bundle" getting you down? Well never mind, because here's an actual, full-on indie bundle for your gaming pleasure, containing some seriously excellent boutique titles. Dungeon Defenders is one of my favourite games of 2011 and the highlight of the package, presenting a brilliant blend of RPG and tower defence. Containment's zombie puzzling is sweet and cerebral. Brainpipe is utterly mad. And Return To Infinite Space is an incredibly rare gem - a casual space exploration sim that'll last you countless hours of replayable fun.
The minimum price will fluctuate depending on demand, which is probably going to be very high considering the quality of these games.
Do not miss this one.
You know the drill: six great indie games, one low fluctuating minimum price to beat. Plus, there's no distributor to take a cut - and no DRM.
Go beat that price. Especially if you're a fan of Radiangames, since Luke Schneider has brought two of his finest to the party.
Indie Royale's April Fools bundle is now live - and it's no laughing matter. For a couple of quid (the price fluctuates depending on interest), you'll net five great games including the sensational Defense Grid and Explodemon... and even get a bonus chiptune album if you beat the minimum rather than match it.
It's a huge saving. The games are excellent. Go buy it.
Indie Royale's Ninja Lightning Bundle is now live and kicking, and lets us grab five decent games for a tiny, essential price. There's some great variety here including puzzling, platforming, strategy and hilarious space station management... and all you have to do is beat the fluctuating minimum price level.
Ancients Of Ooga and Cloning Clyde come with Steam codes, and the rest can optionally be registered with Desura.
You've got four days to make up your mind.
The Indie Royale St. Patrick's Day Bundle is now in full swing, and allows you to get your hands on some seriously great games for a couple of quid. Hard Reset is definitely the main event: a glorious old-school FPS that currently retails for £12.99.
As usual, you'll need to beat the constantly-fluctuating minimum price to get involved. It's likely to be in the region of £2.50-£3.
It's easy to fall in love with the Indie Royale Valentines bundle. Matching the fluctuating minimum price (roughly £2.80 at the time of writing) will net you DRM-free copies of bonkers first-person brawler Zeno Clash, frantic strategy game HOARD (complete with extra DLC), Lume and a double helping of Soulcaster. Beating it also lets you get your groove on with "Music To Play Games By To" from One Life Left.
The folks at Indie Royale are up to their usual tricks once again, this time with a bunch of Serious Sam goodness on offer - including Serious Sam: The Random Encounter, Serious Sam Double D, Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack and Serious Sam: The First & Second Encounter. Indie Royale operate on a 'Beat the Minimum' policy, where the price goes up as more sales are made, with the price dropping if people chip in with more than the minimum.
It's just under £2 at the time of writing, which is an utter steal for all of this awesomeness. Seriously!
Indie Royale, the crew behind some sensational Pay What You Want bundle deals over the last few months, have decided to allow eager beavers to pre-order the upcoming New Years promotion... without knowing what the four games actually are. Luckily they've provided some clues to get us started ahead of this week's launch.
"The titles to be offered will include a premium blend of FPS and RTS (Steam for PC and Mac), an innovative single-player puzzle game (Steam for PC and Mac, Desura for PC, DRM-free PC and Mac download), an award-winning 2D platformer (Steam for PC and Mac, plus an enhanced version for Desura PC, DRM-free PC and Mac download) and a world premiere on PC/Mac for an acclaimed arcade shooter with a twist (Desura for PC, DRM-free PC and Mac download)."
We reckon that the FPS/RTS hybrid is probably Nuclear Dawn, but the other clues could be just about anything. After all, there are countless fantastic Indie platformers and puzzlers on the market. Do let us know if you've got any ideas - maybe we can crack it.
Pre-Orders are now open at a minimum of $3.99, and you're guaranteed to pay the price you set before it starts fluctuating later this week.
Wow. Just... wow. Indie Royale have outdone themselves this time with their Really Big Bundle: offering four amazing games for a tiny (constantly fluctuating price).
We gave Cthulhu Saves The World 9/10. We granted 8/10 to Runespell: Overture. Really Big Sky and Eufloria are varied, imaginative and brilliant. And you even get Breath Of Death VII, which featured in our best XBLIG games of 2010 shortlist.
Just buy this bundle. Buy it now, or miss out.
