Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Indie Royale - The Launch Bundle

26 comments by Henley on Oct 30th, 2011

So the team behind (your favorite sites!) ModDB, IndieDB and Desura have just launched a new site in partnership with IndieGames.com. Called Indie Royale, it is a bundle site featuring four awesome indie games every two weeks, making them collectively available for a heavily discounted price.

The early bird gets the worm!

Indie Royale uses a unique pricing mechanism, think of it as a game of purchasing discounted games! The overall price of the bundle will gradually increase with each purchase so as they say first come - best dressed! Do not fear however! Our faith in the human condition is so strong we have even implemented a way for the extremely rich to help the penny savers among us, the more generously you give the more the fixed price will lower! For more information make sure you check out our FAQ!

Whats on the menu?

Here are the splendid Indie titles being served up in the premiere Indie Royale bundle, predictably called The Launch Bundle. Wadjet Eye Games' Gemini Rue. 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. Also included in this initial Launch Bundle is acclaimed FPS tower defence title Sanctum, which includes four-player co-op in its fast-paced action palette, as well as underappreciated 'Metroidvania'-esque Dream Build Play winner A.R.E.S.: Extinction Agenda, and Noumenon Games' acclaimed, ingenious puzzle/racing game Nimbus.

If you are apart of a fresh and unique Indie development team and you would like to participate in the bundles should contact the team via the website's contact form at: Indieroyale.com.

Hey but I just got a question : there is a (little) inspiration from Megaman (or Rockman if you like)?

MrChocolateBear May 30 2010, 4:14pm replied:

Yes, there was a lot of inspiration from other games out there (Megaman being one). Games like Metroid and Megaman did a lot of things right, and we saw no need to reinvent the wheel. :P

"Reinvent the wheel"? I'm agreed with you but still, there isn't so much games of this kind of sidecrollers these days (Last one I played since yours is Megaman Network Transmission on Gamecube) : The one you're mading is one of the best since Megaman 2
