The Debut 2 Bundle

News 9 comments

Indie Royale is proud to present The Debut 2 Bundle, featuring six video games which are in Steam Greenlight, offering you the chance to sample the indie stars of tomorrow, today. With Croixleur, Beast Boxing Turbo, Dawnstar, Battlepaths, Out There Somewhere and Diehard Dungeon all on offer please show your support for indie newcomers with this week’s tantalising bundle of games that deserve greater awareness than they have today.


Croixleur

Available for PC, DRM-free via Desura
Born in the land of the rising sun, Croixleur is a frenetic hack & slash arcade action game from indie developer souvenir circ. Assume the role of Lucrezia Visconti as she battles her way through floors of brutal monsters while you work to keep the combo counter rising. With three play modes (Story, Score Attack and Survival), ten weapons to collect, each with its own special move, and 20 in-game achievements, this is the quintessential indie action game in 2013.
The Steam Greenlight link for Croixleur is here.


Beast Boxing Turbo

Available for PC and Mac, DRM-free via Desura
Featured in True PC Gaming's ‘Best of 2012’ and described by Rock, Paper, Shotgun as “pleasantly unhinged", Beast Boxing Turbo casts players as a human boxer trying to hide her true species as she fights her way through the animal boxing leagues of Beasthalla. To succeed you’ll need to develop a boxing rhythm, switching between attack and defence, before training your fighter up in key skills and equipping one of 35 different pieces of equipment to even the odds. Beat the Ultra League’s grand champion to unlock NewGame Plus mode for even tougher round of pixel pugilism.
BONUS: Bundle includes four tracks from the game’s original soundtrack and some exclusive artwork
The Steam Greenlight link for Beast Boxing Turbo is here.

Dawnstar

Available for PC and Mac, DRM-free via Desura
Dawnstar is best described as a modern day Space Sim/RPG. Fear, desperation, and organized crime dominate the lawless galaxy sector of Dawnstar, over whose control mafia factions struggle. Cast as a hotshot pilot, you're hired bring order to the chaos. But will you fulfil your duties or exploit your position? With free-flight gameplay, near endless loot to find, over 20 story missions, an open-world environment with randomly generated side missions and co-op multiplayer for up to four friends, Dawnstar is one final frontier you’ll want to master.
The Steam Greenlight link for Dawnstar is here.

Battlepaths

Available for PC, DRM-free via Desura
Create a unique hero in Battlepaths, a 2D Rogue-like RPG that boasts over 25 hours of gameplay as you hunt the Chaos Overlord. Through deep customisation you can choose to play as anything from a heavy, damage-dealing tank character to a deadly ninja that utilizes high speed and agility to attack his victims from out of nowhere. A sophisticated drop system generates innumerable items that can be equipped, while the nuanced combat system allows you to summon creatures to fight by your side as you dash through three distinct realms in search of your ultimate foe.
BONUS: Bundle includes three tracks from the game’s original soundtrack
The Steam Greenlight link for Battlepaths is here.

Out There Somewhere

Available for PC, DRM-free via Desura
This game is a simple platformer with puzzle and action elements. You play as an astronaut, forced to land in a strange alien planet. Low on fuel, now you need to find some way to get an alien power core and avenge your planet, defeating your arch enemy, Grigori. The main game mechanic is the clever use of a teleportation device, to move around the levels.
BONUS: Bundle includes OST
The Steam Greenlight link for Out There Somewhere is here.

Diehard Dungeon

Available for PC, DRM-free via Desura
Described by developer Tricktale as ‘The Legend of Zelda meets a Rogue-like’, Diehard Dungeon hurls you into the belly of a randomly generated dungeon and asks that you escape by any means necessary. With melee and ranged combat, 16 abilities to acquire, seven hulking bosses, multiple endings and a self-upgradeable companion chest which must be fed treasure to keep it happy, Diehard Dungeon is endlessly re-playable and the perfect way to round off the Debut 2 Bundle.
The Steam Greenlight link for Diehard Dungeon is here.

You can find more information on The Spring Sun Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, on its official website or via itsFacebook, Twitter and Google+ pages. As ever, the bundle is cheaper the sooner that you purchase it (unless, of course, some kind purchaser opts to lower the price for others) although there is tremendous value here whatever price you pay.

It's something we've looked into, and has not been available with our engine until very recently. We'd like to do a Linux version, but it may not be at release.

I will minimize my criticism since Wraith Entertainment already stated on their Steam Greenlight page that this release was a mistake. I see alot of potential but there are a number of little issues that add up in the version I got.

Played it at a friend's place, he just bought it off Gamersgate. Frankly, I'm not impressed. Sound glitches, no save button, no way to check controls ingame, laggy performace even on a 660ti with a Hexacore processor. Unacceptable. There are also NO TRANSITION SCREENS, this is absurd. When you fly into a jumpgate in a game like X you're treated to a nice little fade out then the game loads, then you pop out on the other end. Here, no, the game LOCKS UP, flickers to a loading screen then dumps you…
