Indie Royale’s Latest Features Hexcells & Gun Monkeys

By John Walker on January 16th, 2014.

The Indie Royale bundles are certainly amongst the more hit and miss out there. But their latest is a definite hit, simply by containing Hexcells. Have I mentioned Hexcells before? One might argue it’s also worth purchasing for some of the other games in there, like PixelJunk Shooter, Gun Monkeys, Megabyte Punch, Ride ‘Em Low and Stronghold HD.

Indie Royale & Indie Gamer Chick Make A Bundle

By John Walker on July 25th, 2013.

The latest Indie Royale Bundle is an interesting one. It’s curated by Indie Gamer Chick, and contains eight games that originated from the Xbox’s Xbox Live Indie Games. As anyone who’s ever wandered into that store will have noticed, it’s not easy to find the gems amongst the MS-Paint-scrawled madness. Which is why IGC has been reviewing them on her site for a while now, highlighting the highlights. This bundle is eight of the best that have now been ported to PC, so there’s a good chance they’re games you’ll have missed. They’re certainly games I’ve missed.

Indie Royale’s Latest Bundle Is All Arcen

By Jim Rossignol on June 7th, 2013.


The Arclight Bundle over on Indie Royale is a single-studio special from Arcen. That means it includes: AI War, Tidalis, A Valley Without Wind 1 & 2 and Shattered Haven – basically everything other than their latest, Skyward Collapse. They’re even throwing in the new AI War expansion, Vengeance of the Machine, which has just gone into beta. The $8 buy-in unlocks soundtracks for all, too. Not bad at all.

Some more details below.

Indie Royale’s Evolved Bundle Emerges Onto Land

By John Walker on January 31st, 2013.

Bundle bundle bundlenews! Indie Royale have launched their latest, hoping to soak up the cash for another collection of out-turned pocketed developers. This time it’s the Evolved Bundle, because, um, they’ve called it that. And it’s a good-un. In there you’ve got the utterly splendid puzzler Unmechanical from Talawa Games (check out our review), Tale Of Tales’ super-creepy The Path, Fatshark’s latest, Krater, Turtle Cream’s Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory, and physics puzzler OIO from Uncanny Games. Which I’d say is the best pack they’ve had in a while.

‘Tis The Season For Humble Bundle And Indie Royale

By Nathan Grayson on December 20th, 2012.

The holidays are a time of indecision. Who should you visit? What ugly, uncomfortable seasonal sweater should you wear? Which deity(s) should you dedicate your hedonistic blood celebrations to (aside from Horace, of courace)? And, most importantly, what will you buy before/after your relatives shower you with socks or rocks or whatever it is that passes for a universal gift these days? But it doesn’t end there. Oh no. There are, after all, 927.45 trillion videogames to choose between, so you may as well just start sobbing and curl up in a fetal futility ball right now. Unless… no, no. That’s crazy. But maybe… no. It’ll never work. Ah, what the hell: bundles! Both Indie Royale and Humble Bundle have new offerings up, and they’re quite tempting, if I do say so myself.

Latest Indie Royale Bundle Has Indie Games In It

By Alec Meer on December 5th, 2012.

Royale with cheese. I don't know what I mean by that.

As opposed to not-indie games. Apparently there’s controversy when bundles aren’t indie, though I’d appreciate the ill sentiment more if Indie Royale did it, what with the whole indie in the title thing.

Anyway: the line-up for the Indie Royale Winter package is Greed Corp, Hamlet, BIT.TRIP Runner (isn’t that in everything now?), Conquest of Elysium 3, Leave Home and They Breathe. Seeing as I ruined basically hit-attraction techniques by putting all those names above the cut, I’m going to stuff some videos of each of those games below instead. Then I will be high on hits, beyond my wildest possible hit-based dreams. (I don’t have any hit-based dreams, I’m not Rupert Murdoch even if I am almost as crabby).

Indie Royale Crams Dream Machine Into Stuffing Bundle

By Adam Smith on November 19th, 2012.

The Indie Royale returns with The Stuffing Bundle, which makes me think of stockings brimming with gifts rather than breadcrumbs and sage shoved inside a carcass cavity. My headline-dominating opinion is that the three released chapters of The Dream Machine are the stand-out content and on this very site you can read what John and I said about the game in the dwindling days of 2011. The remainder of the stocking is filled with Children of the Nile, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Puzzle Agent 2 and Adventure Apes and the Mayan Mystery. As I write this, minimum price is £2.99.

The Bundle Singularity Has Begun

By Nathan Grayson on November 9th, 2012.

And I will call him Bundlestein.

The day foretold in The Prophecy is finally upon us. Friends, countrymen, arch-nemeses, it’s time for us to lay down our slings and arrows and start wrapping each other in warm, tear-soaked hug blankets. Today, you see, the bundles have aligned. Humble Indie Bundle and Indie Royale both put out new offerings on the same day, and also I saw one awfully portentous-looking crow just kind of wandering around on street earlier. Clearly, there’s no other conclusion to be drawn: this is the end. I love you all. Except the terrible ones.

A Pathological Inclusion: Indie Royale Halloween Bundle

By Adam Smith on October 26th, 2012.

This is incredibly unfair to the other games in Indie Royale’s Halloween Bundle but the reason everyone should buy it is because Pathologic is in there. Ice-pick Lodge’s disease-ridden horror story takes place in one of the most bizarre and fascinating environments ever crafted, and the game is either brilliantly and intentionally brutal or beguilingly broken. Probably both. For what is just shy of £3.00 (at the time of writing), you’ll receive Pathologic, side-scrolling changeable adventure Home, characterful puzzler MacGuffin’s Curse, retro ARPG Evil Quest, and Telltale’s strongest Sam and Max series – The Devil’s Playhouse. But you only needed to know about Pathologic, right? There’s a video below, because bundles have videos now.

Indie Royale Fall Bundle Is Quite Good

By John Walker on October 16th, 2012.

While some of the Indie Royale Bundles haven’t been the strongest, the latest collection in its almost-pay-what-you-want pile is pretty strong. Featuring one of last year’s best games, To The Moon, alongside Wadjet Eye’s most recent Blackwell game, Deception, is Oil Rush, Reprisal, and something called Avseq.

Bundles Of Sun: Indie Royale With RPGs

By Adam Smith on July 24th, 2012.

The latest Indie Royale Bundle is a horrific reminder of boats filled with people made out of money floating down a river in the rain. It’s called the July Jubilee Bundle you see, but even though I’m loathe to be reminded of that drizzly decadence, I’m quite excited by these games. The standout, for me, is the Geneforge Saga. Five excellent Spiderweb RPGs, normally quite pricey, available for a tiny sum. There’s also Unepic, Puzzle Agent, Oniken, Mutant Storm Reloaded and Swift Stitch.

A Big Deal: Indie Royale’s Got Journey Down, Eight Others

By Nathan Grayson on July 3rd, 2012.

And people tell me I'm weird for taking my entire game collection to the beach.

It seems like only yesterday that the last Indie Royale bundle graced us with yet another tantalizingly priced collection of independent videogames. But, it was in fact, 19 yesterdays ago, which apparently meets the requisite downtime quota in indie bundle time. So now the Summer Bundle‘s setting up shop on our virtual sidewalks with an adorably misspelled copy edited sign and promises of delicious lemonade games like The Journey Down and Serious Sam 2. In total, there’s a whopping nine games up for grabs here, so you might consider taking a peek.

Wot I Think: Escape Goat

By John Walker on June 14th, 2012.

My level asplode.

Puzzle platformers are like buses. You have to figure out how to get on the right surfaces, then reach your destination without dying. On another matter, two have come along at once. After yesterday’s lovely Adventures Of Shuggy, today’s new Indie Royale Bundle includes the release of Magical Time Bean’s Escape Goat. Here’s Wot I Think.
