It's time for a new bundle of PC games from Indie Royale, with this week's batch collectively called The Mash. This bundle of five titles includes something from Telltale Games, and no, it's not Sam & Max or The Walking Dead.
Telltale's comedy adventure Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People headlines the batch. Also included are the team-based airship game Guns of Icarus Online from Muse Games; a martial arts beat-em-up called Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise from Qoocsoft; the platformer KRUNCH from LeGrudge & Rugged; and Delve Deeper, a turn-based strategy game involving Dwarven miners, from Lunar Giant Studios.
The average price so far is $5.96, but paying $8 or more will get you Danimal Cannon and Zefâs Parallel Processing album for some easy listening. The bundle will be active until 5 a.m. PT (8 a.m. ET) on March 6.
Would David Fincher’s Se7en be any better if the revelation at the end was that the box contained a pile of indie games for almost no money at all? It would certainly be less psychologically damaging to Brad Pitt to discover the Lovecraft inspired platformer Eversion in there instead of (a box of fluffy kittens for sale – spoiler ed). And while he lived happily ever after he could think back to that lovely day when he and Morgan Freeman and Kevin Spacey all hung out in a dusty field playing indie games. That’s the power of cheap indie games, people: they make you forget someone killed loads of people in really horrible ways. (more…)
Continuing a trend that we can all get behind--that is, bundling great indie games and selling them for a ridiculous discount--developer Lunar Workshop has partnered with some other indies to provide a "5 for $5" bundle. The bundle is DRM-free, and all of the proceeds go directly to the developers.
The announcement trailer above shows bits of the five bundled games. Delve Deeper (Lunar Giant Studios) is a Dwarf-laden, turn-based, competitive, treasure-hunting strategy game. The turn-based strategic gameplay continues with Digitanks (Lunar Workshop), a wargame in which players compete for resources while trying to blow each other up.
Bullet hell shooter fans will likely enjoy Mactabilis (Blazing Bit Games), which features two-player co-op and deathmatch and some light RPG elements. For action that's a bit more puzzling, Spring Up Harmony (Frozax Games) offers a sort of Peggle/Breakout hybrid, and Steel Storm: Burning Retribution (Kot-in-Action Creative Artel) is a slick-looking top-down shooter with a bonus unlockable "First-Person camera mode."
Unless you're someone who's allergic to great deals--in this case, $40 worth of games for $5--I highly recommend giving the "5 for $5" bundle a chance. To give you a better idea of what each included title has to offer, check out the trailers for each, below.
If the bundle tickles your fancy, you can grab it from the Lunar Workshop Store through July 3.
