Dungeon Hearts fuses the strategy and pattern matching of puzzle games with the kinetic pace of action games. Align magical runes as they flow along the Fatestream to attack, defend, and conjure magic in frenetic battles against a bestiary of fantastic creatures out to use those same runes against you. Chain together multiple attacks and unleash powerful combos or call upon each hero's special attacks to devastate your enemies to survive the twists and turns of Dungeon Heart's evolving gameplay. Strike down all that stand in your way and level up your brave warriors as each foe grows more powerful than the last, culminating in the final battle with The Dark One himself!

The Lunar Bundle

2 years ago News 28 comments

Indie Royale presents the out-of-this-world Lunar Bundle. Featuring the recently released Pid & Cargo Commander, Telltale's Back to the Future: The Game and last month's newly released Dungeon Hearts. There are 3, so far unannounced, bonus games. This week's tantalising bundle from Indie Royale includes over $60 worth of games.

Available for PC and Mac. Steam & Desura.
The recently released Pid is a beautiful and creative adventure. It's about a young boy named Kurt who finds himself stranded on a peculiar planet, from where he must find his way home. Finding help from unlikely allies and the curious tools in his backpack, Kurt must use gravity-defying beams to conquer every platform and solve every puzzle on this strange journey. Featuring over 12 hours of action-adventure gameplay and fully-realized co-op, players are poised to experience a beautiful world set to an evocative soundtrack. With twenty-two different locations, dozens of foes and hundreds of secrets, Pid is like your world... only different. Gamespot said "Pid presents a wonderland of sights and sounds". Check it out in The Lunar Bundle.

Cargo Commander
Available for PC and Mac. Steam only. 1 Bonus Track.
Alone in space, light years away from your family, armed with only your FistcannonTM, Platform Drill and the meanest cup of coffee in the sector; you are Cargo Corps' latest recruit, a Cargo Commander. Your responsibilities are simple: travel through the vast reaches of wormhole-filled space salvaging priceless cargo from alien infested... in keeping with our Lunar theme, this is a great space platformer.

Back to the Future: The Game
Available for PC and Mac. Steam, Desura & DRM-Free. Mac is Steam only.
The Future is Back and this time it's playable. Marty McFly and Doc Brown return in a new Back to the Future adventure set six months after the events of the third film. In this exciting new cinematic adventure game - from the award-winning Telltale Games, creator of The Walking Dead - the DeLorean Time Machine mysteriously returns to Hill Valley, without a driver in the seat. Marty must go back in time and employ the help of a resistant teenage Emmett Brown in this unique chapter in the film series.

Dungeon Hearts
Available for PC, Mac and Linux. Steam only.
Bright, vibrant but with a fiendish soul, Dungeon Hearts is a Puzzle/RPG hybrid that fuses the strategy and pattern matching of puzzle games with the breakneck pace of action games. Described by Destructoid as "clever, inspired and enjoyable", you must align magical runes to attack, defend, and conjure magic in frenetic battles against a bestiary of fantastical creatures. A unique and exciting fresh take on the match-3 genre from Cube Roots / Devolver Digital.

The Sea Will Claim Everything
Available for Windows. Desura & DRM-Free.
The Sea Will Claim Everything is a whimsical, sharp, somewhat inscrutable adventure game on Steam Greenlight now. Creator Jonas Kyratzes describes the game as "literary, political, personal, silly, serious, and somewhat obsessed with details." But it also enjoys a childlike quality as you delve through a portal to the Fortunate Isles, where the sinister Lord Urizen is using the debt crisis to impose his will on the people. Unusual, quirky but also utterly unforgettable.

International Snooker
Available for Windows & Mac and Linux. Desura & DRM-Free.
The latest entry to Big Head Games' well-loved snooker series, International Snooker offers players the chance to shine on the green cloth in what many consider to be the most realistic yet approachable take on the sport. Featuring a Career Mode in which you play a full year's calendar of events earning world-ranking points in a bid to become world number one, International Snooker boasts cross-platform compatibility between PC, Mac, iOS and Android players not to mention 8ball and 9ball pool modes.

Available for PC, Mac and Linux. Desura & DRM-Free.
Micron is a game with a unique blend of puzzle and rhythm gameplay. Place pieces on the board to deflect bullets of energy that fire to the beat. Guide the bullets to the exit through 51 challenging levels -- and 12 bonus levels -- featuring a variety of distinctive soundscapes. Your solutions create the music.

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

I kinda feel like developers dont even know they present on Desura or totally forgot about it (like it was with PID), so lets send mails about drm-free version on their mail - mailto:fork@devolverdigital.com

Yep. That's why a lot of folks come to Desura: They want to use this client and not others.

Thank you for the warning. I nearly missed the steam requirement. Very disappointing.

graspee Apr 27 2013 replied:

I agree. There seems to be little point to putting a game on desura which requires steam. I suppose it's because of games (like this one) being in Indie Royale bundles so they have to be on desura.

I wrote a break-down review of the game on my blog (and atm currently hosting a giveaway 4/31/13) if you guys are trying to decide if the game is for you, I tried to review it in an open and honest opinion


Now, the game itself, for me, is innovative. I don't think there's any game like this. It took a simple matching game and turned it into a brain busting strategy game with a mix of RPG element. Now I mentioned on my review why it may be hard for some, but I hope it doesn't keep you from trying it out because once you get used to it. It's fun~ xD

I had been prototyping so long the code was a spaghetti nightmare. So much less code now! #isthisreallife

@kvetchup hopefully you don't do what I do and add a ton of things to it but never go back to read them.

@Danielleri I wish I shared those feelings though, my wife jokes that I’m secretly a robot spying on humans.

@Danielleri Haha my son is like this, sometimes it’s awesome and sometimes it really sucks.

Work got us T.co accounts, I hope they don’t notice most of what I watch isn’t work related (blender, photography, etc)

@Slumpwuffle You can have fun working on a game you wouldn’t necessarily play if the company culture is good, but that’s pretty rare.

@LouisGorenfeld Yeah that’s my current situation, at least until I had kids. As they get older free time is slowly returning tho.
