Indie Royale: How’d It Work Out?

By Alec Meer on October 31st, 2011.

What’s going on? Is everyone alright? What are the arguments of the day? I’ve been on holiday (but travelling no further than my own front room, alas) for the last week and all this seems bewildering and strange. Big, blank white space to write words about PC games into, a buggered RSS feed to try and fix – right, I can do this, it’s okay. Just need to drink a lagoon’s worth of coffee and catch up on whatever the hell’s been going on over the last seven days. Sounding particularly interesting is Indie Royale, the price-fluctuating, updated-fortnightly bundle of indie games that must be making the Humble Bundle chaps slightly grumpy (or at least more keenly competitive) – especially as its inaugral effort seems to have done pretty well.

Bundles Of Love: Indie Royale Site Launches

By Adam Smith on October 26th, 2011.

Like a battle royale but in skinny jeans

Accumulo Nimbus: AGS Gets Digi Distro

By John Walker on April 5th, 2011.

I can't help but think of nimrod.

As we see one of the more independent-leaning digital distribution services going mainstream, with Impulse being bought by GameStop, I’m very pleased to have noticed that there’s a new kid on the scene. Nimbus, created to be a digi-distributor for the archive of Adventure Game Studio games, can do much more believes creator Steve Poulton. He sees no reason why it shouldn’t go on to be the main platform for distributing indie games, although that’s a way off just yet.

Sky Rocket In Flight: Nimbus

By Quintin Smith on October 26th, 2010.

RPS reader Andreas “So Powerful” Persson writes to inform us that indie puzzle-racer Nimbus has just been released on Steam for the price of £5.99. £5.99! That’s not even the cost of a book, and as well all know, books aren’t so hot. If a book was on Hot Or Not, how well would it do? Case closed.

Nimbus was originally an entry into the 2010 IGF, so the game’s evidently done well for itself. No demo yet, but maybe you’ll be sold on the trailer beneath. Maybe…
