This week's irresistible Indie Royale bundle features five creatively diverse games to confound and delight. Knytt Underground, The Real Texas, Monday Night Combat, Satazius and Gentrieve 2 are all available with a clutch of soundtrack bonus items.

Knytt Underground

Available for Windows & Mac and comes DRM-free and on Desura.
Described by one critic as having "one of the most elaborate game worlds ever created" Knytt Underground is an expansive platforming game featuring over 1,800 dim-lit rooms each with its own tightly-wound puzzle to solve. Set within an esoteric, brightly coloured network of underground tunnels, you must run, jump, climb and swing your way through an intriguing storyline, all set to a mesmerising ambient soundtrack. Story-driven quests tie the puzzles together into a cohesive narrative in a game that propels you forwards into its deepest depths and secrets. Knytt Underground is in Greenlight right now so please give it your support on Steam.

The Real Texas

Available for Windows, Mac and Linux DRM-free and on Desura.
Creator Kitty Lambda Games explains The Real Texas as a mash up of Zelda: Link to the Past and Ultima VI. If that weren't enough to spark your interest, its cast of colourful characters look as though they've just stepped out of a Minecraft mansion. You play as Sam, an American holidaying in England when he falls into a blue portal that transports him to a town called Strange Texas. Here you meet the town's inhabitants, explore and help solve their problems as you search for a way to get home. Humorous, affecting and relatable, one critic called The Real Texas "a game that reminds me why I got into indie gaming in the first place." The Real Texas is in Greenlight right now so please give it your support on Steam. BONUS: Bundle includes The Real Texas' Original Soundtrack

Monday Night Combat

Available for Windows via a Steam key.
Uber Entertainment's Monday Night Combat is a class-based action game that pits two teams of combatants against one another in the "most lethal sport of the future". Four players (each assigned one of the game's six character classes) join together to build defensive turrets and take down the opposing team, and you must weigh whether to spend your resources on upgrading your defences or your own character's offensive capabilities. Described by Eurogamer as a game that "cherry-picks ideas from gaming's contemporary landscape and melds them together into something at once fresh and familiar" Monday Night Combat has proved itself one of the most enduring and exciting multiplayer games of recent times.


Available for Steam, Desura and is DRM-free on Windows.
Handsome side-scrolling shooter Satazius is set in the year 2051 on the long-abandoned eponymous planet. Created by indie developer ASTRO PORT (Gigantic Army, Armed Seven, Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser) the game features 13 types of upgradeable weapons, power-ups, obstacles and boss encounters for arcade veterans and newcomers alike. Customize your ship by selecting two side weapons that can be cycled and deployed at any time during the game while a charge attack rips across the screen obliterating anything in its path. Gamespot said Satazius is the perfect way to "scratch your shooter itch"

Gentrieve 2

Available for Windows, Mac and Linux DRM-free and on Desura.
Ambitious, daring and intriguing, Gentrieve 2 is a Metroid Prime-inspired FPS with procedurally generated worlds, puzzles and foes. In the year 3080 thieves have been stealing Mass Generators in an effort to create robot armies and fortresses. Their nefarious plans have come unstuck, as, due to poor programming, these creations have become uncontrollably hostile. You must clear out these fortresses and return the faulty Mass Generators before the world explodes. Each play-through provides a different experience in this ambitious and accomplished experiment in procedural-generation. BONUS: Bundle includes Gentrieve 2 Original Soundtrack

The Bundle $8 Bonus

Adventures in Pixels by Ben Landis - Adventures in Pixels is an album/comic hybrid from composer Ben Landis. Each comic page is embedded as album art for a particular track and the visuals tell a story reminiscent of the classic gaming era, accompanied by a nostalgic 8-bit chiptune soundtrack.

You can find more information on The Spring Sun Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, on its official website or via its Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages. As ever, the bundle is cheaper the sooner that you purchase it (unless, of course, some kind purchaser opts to lower the price for others) although there is tremendous value here whatever price you pay.

Okay, Satazius was crashing the Desura client when I tried to install it - to the point where it crashed the client whenever I tried to run Desura. :(

Anyway, my solution was to use the Satazius Zip in the "purchased downloads" section of this page, and move the resulting folder to my Desura/Common folder. While it still doesn't show up as being "installed" or able to run from the client, at least now the client runs without crashing again.

@InsertDiskII But of course! Right after Armed Seven,Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser, and Steel Strider! :)

Apologies, that last tweet about UNiB does need clarifying. A Steam release of UNiB is by no means confirmed. (Switch 'the' for 'a'.) #FGC

Jan 25 2015, 2:32pm

RT @ZackScott: There is someone impersonating me via"> I've received tons of YouTube messages from developers abo…

Jan 22 2015, 9:48am

@A_crimefighter @wilfooooooooooo Nope. We were just pursuing it and getting a lot of enquiries about it.

Jan 21 2015, 11:43pm

So UNiB update: ASW is now publishing directly to Steam, so it's most likely they'll handle the UNiB PC release rather than us #FGC

Jan 21 2015, 10:40pm

Apologies for the earlier bit of self-censorship - just (belatedly) erring on the side of caution. Cfm'd it's fine, so reposting now #FGC

Jan 21 2015, 10:38pm

@VicViper0 JASAP.

Jan 21 2015, 6:44pm

@geass0101 As much as we'd love to, it's unlikely.

Jan 21 2015, 6:43pm

Sorry, had to delete that last tweet for mis-info...

Jan 21 2015, 5:16pm

@Frostybolty Well, the effort was on the part of the players, not us, but we can't fault ASW for picking up a great game!
