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.

Vertex Dispenser is a game by Michael “Smestorp” Brough, and it’s really rather clever.

Currently I’m writing something about how much I like Vertex Dispenser (as well as offering a couple of criticisms). But I’ve just realised that it will be much easier for people to join in and/or ask questions in the comments that follow if they’ve played the demo. The demo is on Steam. The game is a fairly complex action puzzler that you will probably enjoy. The download is tiny. Play it.
We’ve been inundated with news of forthcoming indie games over the past few months, and the trend looks set to continue. While we’ll always try to link to the best of them – and especially those which are released and have demos – I want to be a bit more systematic about previewing a few of the titles we see each week. I’ll be doing that every friday. This week we have Waves from Squid In A Box, Alien Zombie Megadeath from PomPom Games, and Vertex Dispenser from Michael Brough. Click below to take a look!
Also, if you are an indie developer and you want to send me news of your forthcoming unreleased game please do so here. Emailing in does not guarantee coverage, obviously… But it’s worth a shot, eh?
