OIO, a little guy made of wood, awakes in a subterranean world where all his compatriots stand frozen in time. OIO does not remember what led him and his people into this dark sleep.

He will have to collect informations to uncover the terrible truth while using the power of the seeds to progress to the top of this strange universe and reach for the sun.

OIO is a scrolling platform puzzler, with simple yet intricate game elements with its main goal to collect all the orbs and fragments on each level to unlock the mystery and piece the story together.

The player will guide OIO through a series of scrolling levels in the twilight domain, using the seeds he acquires to grow and combine wooden beams to solve increasingly intricate physical puzzles, master the propagation of fire in the wooden world, and climb ever higher.

OIO's power can be used in different ways, mixing classic platform gameplay and puzzle situations. He is able to combine up to three wooden beams at the same time. He will use them to climb cliffs, jump higher, solve puzzles and control the fire propagation. With his unique hand-made art style and original music, OIO will draw you ever deeper into his strange universe.

Fun indie games are always evolving. If you're searching for the latest in indie gaming, look no further than the Evolved Bundle from Indie Royale. It will give you hours of enjoyment and includes some great recently released games. Featured in this bundle are 5 indie titles, valued at over $55, including last summer's highly rated puzzle solving adventure from Talawa Games, Umechanical; an atmospheric horror game from Tale of Tales, The Path; the recently released squad based dungeon game, Krater from Fatshark; the full game of the IGF China 2010's winner, Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory from Turtle Cream; and an intricate scrolling puzzler, OIO: The Game from Uncanny Games.


All of the games in the Evolved Bundle are new to game bundles!

First up is the tricky, award winning, puzzle adventure game Unmechanical, available for Windows on Steam, Desura & DRM-free. It was developed by Talawa Games and is offered thanks to Teotl Studios. Unmechanical was only released in August 2012. You will explore an atmospheric world of flesh, rock & steel, journeying to freedom through a variety of puzzles with some very difficult challenges later in the game. Rock, Paper Shotgun called it "a near-perfect morsel of puzzling brilliance".

Next is The Path from Tale of Tales. A horror game that relies on your imagination, available for Windows from Steam, Desura & DRM-free. There's a Mac version in there too. The Path is a game about choices and wolves in the woods! Gamespot said it was "an extraordinary work of interactive fiction". Play the game but be careful if you stray from the path! The Evolved Bundle includes the game's OST from rock diva Jarboe.


Also featured is the recently released real-time squad based dungeon crawling game Krater, available for Windows Steam, from Fatshark. The game features fast paced combat, tactical squad management, crafting and questing all from a classis RTS perspective. It's set in a post-apocalyptic Sweden and includes the specially designed online co-op dungeons & bosses. The Evolved Bundle also includes the Character DLC.

The next game in this evolutionary bundle is Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory from Turtle Cream, available for Windows from Steam, Desura & DRM-free. This game is the full version of the IGF China's 2010 winner, Sugar Cube, including the OST. It's all about avoiding becoming a cookie! Multiple endings and achievements give the game a lot of replay value. Indie Game Magazine said "Sugar Cube presents a short, sweet, mind-working, challenge".

Last up is the nature themed scrolling platform puzzler OIO: The Game from Uncanny Games, available for Windows and Mac from Desura & DRM-free. It's simple but intricate and, with a metacritic of 75, it's definitely worth your time! Gamepro says of OIO "difficulty doesn't take long to hone itself to a sharp point" whilst IGN says it has a "truly gorgeous art style". OIO is in Steam Greenlight right now so don't forget to upvote it if you like this game.

Finally, those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Evolved Bundle will get an ambient electronic treat from Tim Wright of CoLD SToRAGE, the recently released 'SLIPSTREAM [volume 1]'. The album features 64 bit digital re-mix / re-masters of Tim's tracks from WipEout and WipEout 2097. Each track has been painstakingly E.Q.'d, compressed and spatially enhanced for the best possible listening experience. It's been a long time coming - we hope you enjoy it!


You can find more information on the Evolved Bundle, 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) so that you'll have hours of indie games to evolve your skills with!

Hi there everybody.
Sorry for the delay, the company is having big troubles right now, so we were pretty busy. In fact we have to dissolve Uncanny Games somehow and very soon :/
We will make an update soon, MAC version, all bugs fixes, saved options and bonus levels.
Stay tuned this week, it will arrive pretty soon.
Best regards and thank you all for playing our game.
And again sorry.

That's sad. You did such an amazing job making OIO. I hope that the situation has improved since the dissolution.

Is there a point to the Graphics Quality settings? I have a rather weak system (4500mhd), but the difference between "Fastest" and "Fantastic" seems to be literally 1 fps - and its not a CPU bottleneck, core usage never spikes close to even 80 on either core.. In most Unity games the difference in performance is huge, to the level where 1080p Fastest could perform as well as 1024x768 Fantastic. As it is, I'm only getting low 20s framerate on 512x384.

Also, after changing the settings in game, I no longer even get the resolution switch option on start up - always starts with 1080p default must then load a level before being able to open menu to switch resolution.

Seems the graphics quality DO make a difference on most levels, it's just the first level where they don't do anything. Also most levels so far (just beat 5) have significantly better performance, to the point where I can play sections at 1024x768 without slowdown.

As for my second issue, resolutions other than 512x384 are remembered. Maybe it has to do with my monitor not officially supporting 512x384 in full screen mode?

So, I bought this game before I noticed a bigger, fanicer version was (ideally) in the process of being greenlit on steam. Will you update this version when the time comes as well?
