About IndieRoyale with 9 comments by INtense! on Jan 8th, 2013

Replay some of the greatest hits from previous Indie Royale bundles in the Replay Bundle Vol. 1. Back by popular demand - grab great titles that you may have missed the first time around! Included in this bundle are FPS and RTS hybrid experience Nuclear Dawn, futuristic tower-defense game Defense Grid: The Awakening, classic 2D adventure game Gemini Rue, and two fast-paced dungeon adventures Soulcaster I and II. Also included is a very special 56-track album bonus (a $20 value!) for those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during this bundle, the 8 Bit Weapon Collection.

First up is InterWave Studios' Nuclear Dawn, available for Windows and Mac on Steam, which offers a full FPS and RTS hybrid experience, without crippling or diluting either side of the game. Players can storm a building as an assault trooper, cling to the shadows with active stealth, or unleash incredible firepower from a high-tech suit of exo-armor, or lead as a commander, marshalling resources and deploying weapons and equipment for your troops. PCGamer praises Nuclear Dawn calling it a "surprisingly deep and well-designed FPS/RTS hybrid."

Also included is Hidden Path Entertainment's Defense Grid: The Awakening, an acclaimed, futuristic tower-defense game for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free. GameSpot calls it a "quintessential example" of the genre and "compulsively playable" for newcomers and skilled players, as they attempt to fight off hoards of increasingly complex alien assaults. Defense Grid includes *six* additional items of DLC: the Borderlands DLC, Resurgence Map Packs 1-4, and an upgrade from the first Indie Royale, the 'GLaDOS from Portal'-starring You Monster DLC! (The additional DLC is available for Steam only.)

Next up is Wadjet Eye Games' Gemini Rue, available for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free. A previous Independent Games Festival finalist, the Joshua Nuernberger-created title is a moody, classic 2D adventure game, with a futuristic sci-fi setting and hand-drawn backgrounds galore. IGN raves about Gemini Rue: "[w]ith (for the most part) seamless, intuitive gameplay, impressive atmosphere and one of most well-crafted and interesting storylines seen in recent years, Gemini Rue is a game not just for adventure fans, but for anyone who loves a good, gritty yarn."

Last up are two acclaimed retro RPG-defense games: Soulcaster I and II available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Acclaimed indie developer MagicalTimeBean offers up two fast-paced dungeon adventures, where players tactically summon the powers of immortal warriors to battle hordes of monsters, discover secrets, collect treasure and buy powerful upgrades for their immortal allies. DIY Gamer says of Soulcaster II "It's simple, it's focused, it's compelling and it's just plain fun. The simple retro aesthetic works well, and the soundtrack is full of energy and toe-tapping beats. Grab it."

Again, for those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent for the Replay Bundle Vol. 1 get a chiptune masterpiece, the 8 Bit Weapon Collection from 8 Bit Weapon. This 56-track album covers over a decade of groundbreaking work by the chipmusic band 8 Bit Weapon and ComputeHer. Featuring 3 hours of chiptastic sounds, the tracks come from multiple albums, singles, remixes and rare demos, and previously unreleased tracks.

You can find more information on the Replay Bundle Vol. 1, including real-time statistics and its current price, on its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages. Grab this bundle now while the price is still low (unless kind purchasers lower the price) for an unbeatable deal!

No, it definitely wasn't. What you are thinking of is the GECK Construction Kit, which is just a visual editor to create content etc. but that is not the actual engine.

A game engine needs to be flexible and abstracted from the kind of game you will make on it, theres games that use a custum engine made for their particular game/gameplay, with a engine like that you would need to change the engine code and tools to make a diferante genre of game, but comercial engine like Gamebryo and any new engine for that matter are developed to be separated from the games, so you can use the engine to make a RPG a FPS a Race simulation a MMO, etc in the same engine using the same tools.

Even though its not listed here, you'd be surprised to find out that this was the same engine that hosted Morrowind. Compare it and Fallout 3, major difference in graphics at least.

No joke. It's certainly remarkable how far apart they are for two games sharing the same technology!

better say based-on the same technology, probably developers just based on gamebyro and developed over it.
