So Many Sams: Indie Royale Gets Serious

On the left, press releases about bundles. On the right, the men of RPS.

How many bundles are there? So many bundles. And here’s another from the folks at Indie Royale. This time it’s what they’re calling a Lightning bundle, perhaps because it falls outside their normal release schedule. These types of bundle will, I believe, focus on one series or developer and for the first it’s Serious Sam. So, what do you get?

Retro-styled RPG Serious Sam: The Random Encounter, side-scrolling shooter Serious Sam: Double D, running, dodging, ‘sploding Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack and The First and Second Encounter. Eric Ruth’s demake, The Greek Encounter, is a bonus unlockable which seems to be have been unlocked already.

All register on Steam except Kamikaze Attack and The Greek Encounter, which have never been on Steam. In fact, Kamikaze Attack hasn’t been available for PC until now and this is the first the world has seen of The Greek Encounter. The price is currently hovering around £1.97.

    These bundles are increasingly difficult to distinguish from each other. They’re really samy.

      I wonder if he is serious.

    • Wizardry says:

      I’d say it’s true in general, but definitely not the case for this one. This one is pretty distinct (obviously). But I sense sarcasm in the op anyway.

    • InternetBatman says:

      I’m getting tired of Indie Pundles.

    • Koozer says:

      Oh dear, westyfield’s in for a right royal thrashing now.

      aaaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA am getting sick of these pun threads.

    • Inglourious Badger says:

      “Do you know what they call Indie Bundles in France?”
      “Err, Indie Royale?”
      “That’s right! And do you know why they call it the Indie Royale?”
      “Because of the metric system?”
      “Check out the big brains on Brett! You’re a smart mother…”

      This is mental.

    • Tams80 says:

      This is not my second encounter with a pun thread.

      When bad puns attack

      My girlfriend Minni gun luv these ones. They’ll revolve her around them in no time.

      You don’t need a clutch to have a shogun called Marcus here! (shogunreallyashotgunwithnamemarcusonit.jpg)

      It also seems that the attitude of the local journos is a bit loose. You might even say (the) Walker is a bit laser fare.

      The choir boys that did the OST for the desert level sounded a bit neutered. They were right on canon bawling.

      No reason to lose your head over this or go mental.

    This was expected, since steam registry has never failed so far. I will have to pass. I’ve got Serious Sam Gold Pack and Double D, so not really interested.

  3. Tiax says:

    T’was kinda cheap not to include the HD remakes.
