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 featuring a variety of distinctive soundscapes. Your solutions create the music.

Micron began as a game created for Kongregate's 'Project Eden: Experience the Music' game contest, in which it won 2nd place. The judges included Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of REZ and LUMINES, and representatives from Ubisoft, Gamespot, and Kongregate.

"Classic visual like the Famicon but experiencing the process of sound effects evolving into the music felt really good. The harder the game, the more exciting the music gets--this was blended perfectly." - Tetsuya Mizuguchi

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.

I could solve bonus level 4 with one piece left over?!

This was the first time in the whole game, is it intentional?

Another one is bonus level 10...
Still one piece left!

Nope, not intentional! I must have screwed up. :) Can you PM me screenshots?

Demo isn't playable on dual-monitor Ubuntu 12.04 with nVidia binary drivers systems because it fullscreens by default and its TwinView fullscreening is broken.

It fills one monitor, draws as if it's filling both, and doesn't register clicks on the visible half of the options button.

Furthermore, it refuses to un-fullscreen. If I manually edit ~/.config/unity3d/Apparition Games/Micron/prefs, then it is briefly windowed before resetting to its broken fullscreen view. (And that was harder to find than it should've been because it was in ~/.config/unity3d rather than something like ~/.config/micron or ~/.config/Apparition Games/Micron.)

That may be because the default behaviour of nVidia TwinView is to report 2560x1024 (the combined native resolution of both monitors) as the only available resolution and many games are written with the broken assumption that the list of available fullscreen resolutions will always include things like 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, and so on like it does on Windows.

(And, while I COULD enable resolution changing, that breaks a lot of other things on my desktop like sticky note placement so, if I have to choose between my comfy desktop and Micron, I'll pass on Micron.)

Any chance you could get this problem fixed before the sale is over so I can decide whether I want it?

I found the problem and will be fixing it as soon as possible. In the meantime, putting this in the prefs file should work:


Thank you both for the help! And I apologize for the issues.

That works perfectly and thanks. I just bought the full version.

As for the apology, don't worry. Bugs happen to everyone and your fast response has already been thanks enough.

Try setting the <FullScreen>, <ScreenWidth>, and <ScreenHeight> elements in the prefs file to something like:

This will override the values of the "Screenmanager" prefs and should force the game to start in windowed mode. Even if this works, I realize this isn't an ideal solution and I'm going to try to fix it properly. Thanks for the detailed description of the issue!

I'm actually affected by this too! Glad to know there's a workaround, and that you're fixing it!

Your workaround doesn't seem to work, unfortunately. The first time I tried it, the prefs file just went back to exactly how it was before (completely removing my changes). I then tried to edit the "Screenmanager" prefs, same thing. Then I edited the file, made it read-only and tried. The file isn't changed, but Micron still has the same problem (opens fullscreen, sized to fit both monitors, but only on the left one, doesn't respond to any input).

Hmm... Thanks for giving it a try.

I built a new version of the demo that might work. I'll PM you the link.
