Described by the developers as "the greatest 2¼D cover-based indie shooter of all time ever", Not A Hero is looking pretty cool. It's being made by London-based indie outfit, Roll7 -- the same folks who brought us the gloriously addictive OlliOlli.

Apparently the game is ready for testing, and that's where you come in.

Roll7 have extended a global invitation to games across the world to get in touch if they fancy being part of Not A Hero's testing process.

All you have to do is pop an email expressing interest over to [email protected].

Check out Jon's interview with Roll7's John Ribbins from Rezzed last year in the video below, and click here to visit the game's official site.

We're still not entirely sure who gave Dead Island a Game of the Year award to warrant the title of this zombie-bashing package, but it doesn't really matter. What does, though, is that for £3.74 you can get Dead Island along with the Bloodbath Arena and Ryder White DLC, along withe blueprint for The Ripper weapon type.

You can check out our Dead Island review here. Thanks for the tip FantasyDeals!

MASSIVE Bundle Alert: 14 Steam Games only £1.99 in the Resurrection Bundle!

The Bundle Stars Resurrection Bundle contains 14 Steam games for only £1.99. That's 14p per game, before trading cards. Click here to buy! >>

Quantity is incredible, though quality is all over the shop to be honest. The highlights are definitely excellent if ageing RTS Hostile Waters and brilliant if hammy FMV horror game Realms Of The Haunting. Gun Metal is also rather fun if you can get to grips with the controls. On the other hand there's some tat here too.

Still, again, 14p. Bargain. Thanks gooner for the tip!

Or perhaps wait until you know what's in it first. Namely Circuits, Crow, EvilQuest, Guns n Zombies, Leviathan: The Last Day of the Decade, Obludia, Vanguard Princess and an oh-so-enigmatic mystery game. Great value, especially considering that EvilQuest is a lot of fun - check out my ancient review. Thanks jaystan!

The Every Monday Bundle is live on Indie Gala, costing only 98p until 16:30 this afternoon. Click here to buy! >>

We were a bit slow off the mark with this one, but jaystan was on point as per usual. Thanks again!

The bundle includes Save the Furries, Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory, Words for Evil, Dwarf Tower, Luna: Shattered Hearts Episode 1 and Basketball Pro Management 2014. I can't personally vouch for the quality of any of these, so I'd suggest doing a little digging to make sure they're up your steet.

N.P.P.D. Rush is bizarre, experimental & only 29p on Steam

N.P.P.D. Rush: The Milk Of Ultra Violet is one of the oddest games I've encountered in ages, and now it's one of the cheapest too. Click here to buy it for £0.29! >>

It's half time attack shooter, half allegorical storyline, all visual lovechild of the ZX Spectrum and Teletext. Then it turns into a bullet hell SHMUP. Just because it can. Also there are nightmare staircases.

Though insane and frankly mediocre in some aspects, I ultimately found myself loving N.P.P.D. Rush. Find out why in our full review!

Avernum 2: Crystal Souls Review | The Fantastic Formula

Okay. You got me. My Spiderweb Software RPG reviews are getting pretty formulaic. I typically kick things off by bemoaning the state of gaming these days, then wax lyrical about the Infinity Engine and the importance of writing over visuals. Thankfully Jeff Vogel is still around, though, creating enormous and engaging RPGs with rich fundamentals and masterful command of the written word. Which I praise highly and breathlessly, pausing briefly to criticise the terrible interface before slapping on a ripe old score and an editor's choice award.

In my defence, however, my reviews are so formulaic because Spiderweb Software follows a winning formula of their own, down to the same basic systems and iterative engine that remain largely unchanged after two decades. As an expanded remake of a remake (Avernum 2 originally released in 2001, which was itself a remake of Exile 2!), you might expect Avernum 2: Crystal Souls to be old rope that's fraying around the edges somewhat.

Avernum 2: Crystal Souls Review | The Fantastic Formula

So I'm delighted to report that Avernum 2: Crystal Souls manages to feel fresh and unique despite its pedigree, thanks to the timeless quality of Vogel's writing and its impressively unique campaign structure. If you have 40-odd hours to spare and don't mind reading a novel's worth of text, this is a old-school trip worth taking. It's certainly the gaming highlight of my year thus far.

We return to Avernum, a sprawling subterranean world in which generations of exiled prisoners have started new lives and scratched together a brave new civilization against the horrors of the dark. Unfortunately the surface world has launched a crushing offensive against its former outcasts, scattering and crushing the beleagured yet determined rebels. It's a unique and complex setting that feels alive and authentic, underpinned by powerful themes of poverty, desperation, rebellion and racism, but what's remarkable is that the world and its inhabitants are brought to life though the writing, not the graphics.
