OST(erity) Cuts: Indie Music Bundle

By Adam Smith on November 25th, 2011.

My girlfriend just asked: "Is that the logo? It's weird." I told her it was a box with music exploding out of it and she said: "Oh. So it's not weird then?" Satisfied.

Here’s an indie bundle with a difference – it doesn’t contain any games. Instead, the Indie Music Bundle it’s a collection of soundtracks from some of your favourite (assumption #1) indie games and some you have probably never heard of (assumption #2). As is swiftly becoming obligatory, the ten albums are available at a price of your choosing, although this is for one day only, being a Black Friday sale. The minimum price is $1 and if you pay at least $10 you’ll receive seven bonus items.

Of the ones that I know, the VVVVVV soundtrack is simply wonderful, and both Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac, are quite enjoyable. The latter is in the $10 bonus items. Even if you opt to be stingy, for a dollar you’re sure to find something that you love (assumption #3). Everything is DRM-free and delivered as 320kbps MP3s. Take a look.

Now, the indie aficionados behind Indiegames.com and the fine fellows at digital distribution service Desura have launched Indie Royale, a new site with a new type of indie bundle. Containing four games, with new ones every fortnight, the bundles have an original take on pricing and, if the first one is anything to go by, they’ve got some excellent games lined up.

A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda Has A Demo

By Jim Rossignol on January 20th, 2011.


Fancy-lookin’ side-scrolling shooter A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda has a demo out. Apparently “you are Ares, the first Zytron immune robot.” So that sounds exciting. There are also massive explosions, boss-battles, and lots of running, jumping, and shooting, as you might expect from this kind of thing. For the purposes of your education, I’ve posted a trailer of the game in action below. There are combos and such.
