Azriel Odin, ex-assassin, arrives on the rain-drenched planet of Barracus. When things go horribly wrong, he can only seek help from the very criminals he used to work for. Meanwhile, across the galaxy, a man called Delta-Six wakes up in a hospital with no memory. Without knowing where to turn or who to trust, he vows to escape before he loses his identity completely. As fate brings these two closer together, we discover a world where life is cheap, identities are bought and sold, and a quest for redemption can change the fate of a whole galaxy.

The Replay Bundle

News 9 comments

Replay some of the greatest hits from previous Indie Royale bundles in the Replay Bundle Vol. 1. Back by popular demand - grab great titles that you may have missed the first time around! Included in this bundle are FPS and RTS hybrid experience Nuclear Dawn, futuristic tower-defense game Defense Grid: The Awakening, classic 2D adventure game Gemini Rue, and two fast-paced dungeon adventures Soulcaster I and II. Also included is a very special 56-track album bonus (a $20 value!) for those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during this bundle, the 8 Bit Weapon Collection.


First up is InterWave Studios' Nuclear Dawn, available for Windows and Mac on Steam, which offers a full FPS and RTS hybrid experience, without crippling or diluting either side of the game. Players can storm a building as an assault trooper, cling to the shadows with active stealth, or unleash incredible firepower from a high-tech suit of exo-armor, or lead as a commander, marshalling resources and deploying weapons and equipment for your troops. PCGamer praises Nuclear Dawn calling it a "surprisingly deep and well-designed FPS/RTS hybrid."

Also included is Hidden Path Entertainment's Defense Grid: The Awakening, an acclaimed, futuristic tower-defense game for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free. GameSpot calls it a "quintessential example" of the genre and "compulsively playable" for newcomers and skilled players, as they attempt to fight off hoards of increasingly complex alien assaults. Defense Grid includes *six* additional items of DLC: the Borderlands DLC, Resurgence Map Packs 1-4, and an upgrade from the first Indie Royale, the 'GLaDOS from Portal'-starring You Monster DLC! (The additional DLC is available for Steam only.)

Next up is Wadjet Eye Games' Gemini Rue, available for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free. 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. IGN raves about Gemini Rue: "[w]ith (for the most part) seamless, intuitive gameplay, impressive atmosphere and one of most well-crafted and interesting storylines seen in recent years, Gemini Rue is a game not just for adventure fans, but for anyone who loves a good, gritty yarn."


Last up are two acclaimed retro RPG-defense games: Soulcaster I and II available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Acclaimed indie developer MagicalTimeBean offers up two fast-paced dungeon adventures, where players tactically summon the powers of immortal warriors to battle hordes of monsters, discover secrets, collect treasure and buy powerful upgrades for their immortal allies. DIY Gamer says of Soulcaster II "It's simple, it's focused, it's compelling and it's just plain fun. The simple retro aesthetic works well, and the soundtrack is full of energy and toe-tapping beats. Grab it."

Again, for those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent for the Replay Bundle Vol. 1 get a chiptune masterpiece, the 8 Bit Weapon Collection from 8 Bit Weapon. This 56-track album covers over a decade of groundbreaking work by the chipmusic band 8 Bit Weapon and ComputeHer. Featuring 3 hours of chiptastic sounds, the tracks come from multiple albums, singles, remixes and rare demos, and previously unreleased tracks.


You can find more information on the Replay Bundle Vol. 1, including real-time statistics and its current price, on its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages. Grab this bundle now while the price is still low (unless kind purchasers lower the price) for an unbeatable deal!

Would like to see the Desura pricing more inline with Steams for this game, as I'd rather buy it via here than Steam. Time for a sale maybe? :)

I came here to post about just that. Seen it around the web in various places for less than the Desura price. I like Desura but I'm not willing to pay almost double for a game just to get it on here.

I've been aching to buy this for some time now, but the Windows exclusivity is making it hard for me to justify.
Are there any plans for a Linux version?

Actually, disregard that last comment, I've actually compiled the linux version of AGS, but it's small and I can't scale the low rez graphics.

In windows, it just changes your resolusion.

Yeah, the Linux version seems to work really well, in terms of gameplay, for most games. Problems I've experienced with multiple games include full-screen scaling, and sometimes problems getting audio to work. But, yeah, there is an AGS contributor (JJS, by the way) who has been committing all the patches for Linux.

Even if the game plays perfectly, we still have to convince Wadjet Eye that it is worth packaging and supporting. They are notoriously conservative in terms of commitment of resources, so we have to convince them that it will be worth it.

They would have a linux version, but the AGS Engin is Open Source, but Dependent on Windows APIs.

There was an older version of the AGS Client for Linux years ago, but They stopped development for some reason :/

But, I hear there will be a new Linux Client and they better because Windows 8 sucks and it's easy to port SDL/OpenGL stuff to Smartphones

just started playing it, picked this up during the indie royale bundle and it is amazing. I think this will be the game that gets me to try out more point and click adventures...or maybe i set the bar too high already lol.

After playing the demo, I can only say that this is an obvious, absolute must have for any gamer used to the good old times, scoring high along the indiana jones playstyle, absolutely love it.

Buying this for me and a few friends. You guys deserve it.
