Nominated as a IGF Seamus McNally Finalist, NightSky is an ambient action-puzzle game that offers a gameplay experience unlike any other—cerebral challenges fill uniquely designed picturesque worlds. The player must maneuver a sphere by using realistic physics to advance; each of these worlds is broken into different areas. The original soundtrack by experimental jazz musician, Chris Schlarb will further heighten the surreal experience.

Four great games, one crazy low price, all available on Steam, Desura and direct download. Indie Royale is a new indie games deal site inspired by the awesome HiB (run by us! in partnership with In this bundle we have Fate of the World, a tough and extremely addictive strategy game from Red Redemption that asks you to save the entire world from crisis. We have NightSky, a fantastic arcade puzzler from Nicalis and a past IGF Seamus McNally Grand Prize finalist.

Next up is Scoregasm from Charlie's Games, a brilliant space shooter that will get you a little hot under the collar with its hordes of bullets, enemies and explosions. Finally, we have the Ben There, Dan That! and Time Gentlemen, Please! adventure game combo, both from Size Five Games. That's right - this bundle has 5 games in it, rather than 4!

That's over $40 worth of games we've got for you right there, and we recently added all DLC for Fate of the World and two bonus games from Charlie. To grab it, Indie Royale is the place to do so.

If you have problem with sound just remove form lib or lib64 and install it on your system manually :D

I bought this game on the Humble Indies Bundle #4 and I managed to have it on my account using the installed games wizard. Will it stay there?

Yes, 64bit version freezes. But the 32bit version on 64bit system works flawlessly.

Neither work for me on my 64-bit Lubuntu system... but I noticed that it freezes at the point where the sound would start. Maybe it's another one of those games that breaks if you use bare ALSA rather than PulseAudio.

I can play the Windows version on Linux using Wine, but that's really not something I like having to do.

(I had to remove PulseAudio because, at unpredictable moments, it starts pegging one of my 3.2Ghz CPU cores at 100% load until you kill it)

I have the opposite problem. I bombs out at launch with ALSA pcm device and socket errors (I'm running Pulse) when I run the 64-bit version. I've not tried the 32-bit binary yet, but I'm about to try it...

32-bit binary also has problems, in that it requires libraries not provided by the ia32 library support package. I'd need to build a few 32-bit libraries to make it work. Very frustrating.

Ugh. Well, for the record, it works beautifully in Wine if you get fed up with fighting with a shameful port that was probably only sloppily written to qualify for the Humble Indie Bundle.

Flawlessly until a Wine update breaks it on me. At least I'll have some gameplay, though. Thanks for testing that and reporting back!

You could always use PlayOnLinux to set up a Wine prefix that'll stay on a specific version of Wine. (Among other things, PlayOnLinux can automate downloading specific versions of Wine and installing them inside folders in ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/)

I used it as an automated way to set up a Wine prefix for the copy of Legend of Grimrock I bought off

My only caution is that their "stable" release isn't always as stable as the "old" version your distro packages.
