Dive off a skyscraper. Spraypaint buildings. Flip off protesters. The jumps you make off buildings floating above Boston, Massachusetts are all about style and timing. You perform stunts, weaving around the bustling City for points, making split-second decisions: do you snake around those girders to earn a dozen "kisses," or glide along the side of that steel super-skyscraper for massive "hugs"? AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! then throws in the spectators — as you fall, give fans the thumbs-up and protesters the finger.

The Thoughtful Bundle from Indie Royale has 5 very clever and very good games for you. We've got Snapshot, Cognition Episode 2: The Wise Monkey, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity, Fieldrunners and Snuggle Truck.
All these games are from developers with close ties to Boston, Massachusetts. Next week Boston hosts the PAX East show and Indie Royale will be there supporting local developers with these games!
The first game in The Thoughtful Bundle is Snapshot from Retro Affect. This fantastic platforming adventure game tells the tale of a lone robot lost in an abandoned world. PC Gamer said Snapshot "is a charming, challenging platformer with innovative puzzles and a generous helping of good ideas". Snapshot is available on Windows and Mac from Steam as well as Desura for PC and DRM-Free versions for Windows, Mac & Linux.
Following up, we have the second of the Erica Reed series from Phoenix Online Studios: Cognition Episode 2: The Wise Monkey. This adventure game was only released in January. It follows the first episode which we featured in The Debut Bundle last week. AtomicGamer said "The Wise Monkey offers some good old-fashioned adventure game entertainment and promises more to come." It's available from Desura and DRM-Free on Windows & Mac. We've also got the soundtrack.
Next up is AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity from Dejobaan. This award-winning game is about Base Jumping; the player gets to dive off buildings and perform stunts. GamesRadar said it "is a must for any self-respecting armchair thrill junkie and one of the best indie games of the year". We've got it for Steam on Windows and DRM-Free.
Another great game that will exercise your brain is Fieldrunners from Subatomic Studios. It's an award winning tower defense game with a great visual style. Fieldrunners is available for Steam on Windows and Mac and DRM-Free. We've also got the soundtrack.
Finally we have award winning physics-based driving game Snuggle Truck from Owlchemy Labs. We've got it on Steam on Windows and Mac and DRM-Free with the OST.
Those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Thoughtful Bundle will get Bright Primate's Thoughtful full chiptune album: Night Animals. Bright Primate will be appearing in Boston during PAX East. This album is available in MP3 and FLAC format.
We've started to put interviews with some of the developers whose games we've featured in different Indie Royale bundles on our YouTube channel; check in for the latest videos.
