This is the Linux version of our work in progress demo, which can potentially be used to run under Mac as well.
Eufloria is an ambient game of space exploration and conquest that employs surprising themes of plant growth and bio-mechanical evolution. Conquer asteroids in space and use their resources to literally grow and nurture new semi-organic plants and creatures to do your bidding.
Explore a beautifully realized universe rendered in unique and compelling style. Dyson's aesthetics are reminiscent of children's books like "the little prince" and are supported by an original ambient soundtrack by Brian Grainger.
The player is pitched again several teams of AI opponents that all vie for the same resources and can offer fierce opposition.
Firstly we'd like to thank you again for our success to date, with almost 70,000 bundles and over 350,000 games sold in less than a month. We're proud to debut our third bundle -- including five top PC indie games, available at IndieRoyale.com right now. (Those with preorders can download or redeem keys at any time.)
The 'Really Big Bundle' is led by the title that gave the bundle its name - Boss Baddie's crazed space shooter Really Big Sky, packing a whopping 12 game modes and local 4-player coop into its beefy, feature-filled frame.
Also now revealed as part of this bundle is Dutch developer Mystic Box's underappreciated Runespell Overture (also available on Mac for bundle buyers), an RPG twinning collectible cards with poker-based combat in extremely playable and innovative fashion.
Additionally part of the bundle is the the PC version of Independent Games Festival finalist Eufloria (formerly known as Dyson), an acclaimed 'ambient space exploration' title that's been a staple of independent game showcases over the past couple of years.
And finally, Zeboyd Games' cult indie RPG duo Cthulhu Saves The World and Breath Of Death VII - twinning Lovecraft-ian spoof with Japanese RPG pastiche of the finest sort - complete the five titles in the 'Really Big Bundle'.
Those who preordered, as well as those pay more and get a 'Star' to drop the price during the bundle will also receive a bonus 'thank you' in the form of Fez composer Disasterpeace's chiptune concept music album 'Rise Of The Obsidian Interstellar'. (In addition, all Bundle buyers should check back towards the end of the bundle for further bonuses from the creators of the games included in this pack!)
Once again, thanks for caring about some of the emerging titles we're taking the time to showcase here - please contact us if you have an questions about anything to do with Indie Royale.
Highest Rated (5 agree) 9/10
It might not look like much, but as the old saying goes looks can be deceiving. Eufloria is gameplay perfected, nothing more nothing less.
A perfect casual indie game which is instantly fun and only takes seconds to grasp. Highly recommended.
