Indie Royale Fall Bundle Is Quite Good

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

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

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

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.

Growing Up, Blowing Up: Indie Royale Graduation Bundle

I desperately want to play with that tassel.

I’m incredibly proud to announce that Indie Royale has finally graduated. I haven’t the foggiest idea of what it’s actually graduated from, but it has one of those fun dangly tassel hats now, so that means it’s probably smarter than me. Before it goes off and writes the next great American novel while aboard a rocket of its own construction made from inferior American novels, however, it’s putting more indie games on sale. Six more of them, in fact – including the debut of retro-themed zombie-blasting RPG Dead Pixels. “But wait,” you might say, tossing around high-level math like some kind of graduate-school-bound indie bundle, “that’s only one game; where are the other five?” Be educated after the break.

Day-Saving Savings: Indie Royale All-Charity Pack

Never try to bottle lightning. Put it in a box instead.

Games are pretty great. I realize that this is an incredibly contentious statement, but just work with me on this one. You know what else is really great, though? Saving the entire free world. But we can’t all be firemen, police officers, or the Hulk, and for us, there’s the Indie Royale All-Charity Lightning Pack. Every last cent from the bundle gets split between Amnesty International, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Actionaid, and Unicef, and hey, the game lineup is actually pretty awesome. Man, saving the world really is as easy as no one says it is.

The Lightning Pack – which has just over 80 hours’ worth of sand left in its hourglass – includes soul-soothing subatomic droplet magic toy Osmos, rough and rowdy physical party game B.U.T.T.O.N, hard-boiled Rabbi detective story The Shivah, and delightful exploration experiment Blueberry Garden. Are you tempted by the diabolical succubus that is charity? Then you know what you must do.

Indie Royale Bundle Defends Some Dungeons

Rather good fantasy multiplayer tower defence thing, Dungeon Defenders (Wot I Think), is at the heart of the May Indie Royale bundle. The minimum at the time of writing is £3.26, and for that you get Dungeon Defenders, Containment: The Zombie Puzzler, Data Jammers: FastForward, Brainpipe – A Plunge to Unhumanity, and Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space. Paying over $7 worth of cash gets you the musical bonus of this chiptune album.

Right. That’s all the bundle news for now. Unless anyone wants to launch one by surprise in the next few minutes? No? Another cup of tea then, I think.

Spring Fling: Indie Royale Births A New Bundle

So that's where indie games come from.

Spring time has always been a bit of a double-edged sword for me. On one hand, there are flowers and refreshing breezes, and the sun smiles like in an old black-and-white cartoon, except with a chillingly sinister undertone because it’s kind of pissed about global warming these days. But, on the other, crippling allergies render me incapable of drawing breath. Fortunately, thanks to Indie Royale’s spring bundle, I can now take my mind off my sputtering, purple-faced death by partaking of a nice selection of indie games on the cheap. So that’s nice.

Time Paradox: Indie Royale Launches April Fools Bundle

Note: actual game looks decidely less like Magicka.
I’m pretty sure the fumes emanating from Indie Royale‘s perpetually whirring bundle factory have finally gone to the shadowy conglomerate’s head. April Fools, after all, was days ago. Or perhaps… no. Perhaps the joke’s on us. Maybe Indie Royale spent the entire year secretly offsetting every calendar in the world by a couple of days. Now countless schedules are in tatters, nations are falling, and no one knows when Game of Thrones will be on again. Or maybe Indie Royale just needed a catchy title. At any rate, Defense Grid: The Awakening, Alien Zombie Megadeath, Explodemon, and Hack, Slash, Loot are up for grabs. Astro Tripper‘s the bonus this time around. Details on each after the break.

Latest Indie Royale Boasts Hard Reset, Vertex Dispenser

Indie Royale’s St Patrick’s Day Bundle includes the “old school” FPS Hard Reset, the awesome abstract 3D action puzzle game Vertex Dispenser, as well as Jolly Rover and DLC Quest. The current average is £3.19, with just over four days left. Paying over the average also bags you this Nintendo-inspired soundtrack.
