Prepare yourself for a unique gameplay experience, as "QLIONE" shakes up and redefines what a 2-D shooter game can be. The psychedelic vector backgrounds, gorgeous, splashy explosions and even the enemy projectiles are constantly moving, bending, shape-shifting and flowing in the most unconventional directions, offering the player a game that's equally challenging and optically stunning!

Perhaps one of the most visually imaginative titles ever to emerge onto the doujin game scene, QLIONE is one of those games you must actually see to appreciate the aesthetic beauty of its overall look. In a strange other-worldly liquid space environment that's somewhat akin to watching colonies of microbes flagellating underneath a microscope, combined with the geometric entities reminiscent of the shooter game "Tempest," this game will have you marveling at the overall designs while at the same time dodging constant enemy assault at every stage.

Summer is over and fall is on the horizon; for many it's time to go back to school! But don't let the "back-to-school blues" get you down, Indie Royale's got you covered with the Back to School Bundle featuring seven great indie games, including an exclusive debut for Bunny Must Die! from Rockin' Android!


First up is a game where you can re-write history while you are studying it - Ronimo Games' side-scrolling real-time strategy game, Swords & Soldiers with the awesome Super Saucy Sausage Fest DLC, available for Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. [NOTE: Super Saucy Sausage Fest DLC is not available for Linux users - apologies!] This beautifully crafted game offers humorous wit and solid game-play while you take control of the brutal Vikings, the devious Aztecs or the crafty Chinese in their global quest to win the favor of the Gods. The Super Saucy Sausage Fest DLC offers ten new campaigns, an improved challenge mode, and plenty of new spells and units. GameSpot praises Swords & Soldiers: "its simple controls and abounding good humour are likely to engage even those who have never dipped their controllers into the strategy pool."

Next up is a space simulation game that's sure to inform your studies about the moon landing from Shovsoft, Lunar Flight available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. This full 3D game is a re-imagining of the classic Atari game Lunar Lander and offers mission types involving transporting cargo, acquiring data at survey locations and locating lost cargo in a 3D world. DIYGamer raves about Lunar Flight, stating that it "sets the bar for Lunar Lander-likes (...) Shovsoft have created a fresh-faced and wonderfully playable space simulator that I urge everyone to try."

As if that weren't enough, also featured is an exclusive debut that's sure to get your brain working with exploration-based platformer challenges, Bunny Must Die: Chelsea and the 7 Devils available for for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. This hilarious Japanese 'Metroidvania'-esque game is brought to you by Platine Dispositif and Rockin' Android, and features Bunny as she explores the Devil's' Labyrinth, using magical items like a Sylph Shooter and Hyper Heels to manipulate the fabric of time, solve puzzles and survive. You can't miss Bunny Must Die! which offers a comical style, hand-drawn 2-D graphics, a charming storyline and an unlockable character.


Also included is a clever game that'll stimulate both the right and left sides of your brain by offering rhythm action and role-playing-game spellcasting -- Sequence from Iridium Studios, available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. You'll play Ky, after he awakens imprisoned in a tower and has to ascend 7 levels of the tower guided with the help of a mysterious girl named Naia. With a standout in-game soundtrack that you fight along in time to, TruePCGaming praises Sequence for its dialogue developed by Jason Wishnov calling it "one of the funniest, well-written scripts that has ever graced a computer game."

Additionally, this bundle includes two more games from Rockin' Android never before available in a bundle - the hidden Japanese shmup gems Flying Red Barrel - Diary of a Little Aviator and Qlione, available for for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Orange_Juice's Flying Red Barrel offers colorful graphics and innovative scoring mechanics not to mention bullet hell shooting that's deliciously violent. Shindenken's Qlione is a unique 2-D shooter game that’s based on a lone amoeba and is equally challenging yet optically stunning, offering psychedelic vector backgrounds and gorgeous, splashy explosions!

Last up is a violent yet disturbingly cute game that offers a welcome distraction from studying, Cute Things Dying Violently -- brought to you by ApathyWorks (along with its OST!) available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. This goofy yet warped title, previously a critical hit on Xbox Live Indie Games, offers 60 mind-bending levels, half-dozen unlockable special levels, and according to Joystiq is a "delightful puzzle game" that you'll wanna try!


Don't forget, those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Back to School Bundle will get an entire chiptune music album! The featured chiptune 'BIAS', an 18 track album ($5 if purchased standalone) is from minusbaby (renowned chiptune artist best known for "exploring the diversity of a lo-fi, compositional aesthetic"). It's been praised by by fellow chiptune notable 4Mat as "the first chip album for me where there's no gimmick - it's a serious piece of work that's not ruled by the hardware it's made on.”

You can find more information on Back to School Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, on its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages. And remember, you'll want to get in early while the prices are still low (unless kind purchasers lower the price) so that you can supplement your studies with the Back to School Bundle!

Is it me, or does it seem like the game stops working if you leave Full-screen mode on with Windows 7?

To italian speakers "Qlione" is going to sound "odd", to say the least...

I had to set the compatibility to Win XP SP3 for this game to work on my Win 7 SP1 x64. Will review when I get time.
