Valentine's Day is famous for wilting flowers and packed restaurants. Why not stay in and have some indie gaming fun instead? We can sort that! There are hours of very unromantic alien blasting, striking tower defense action & heaps of classic platforming to be found in the Valentine's Bundle 2.0 from Indie Royale. Together the 6 titles featured in this bundle are valued at over $65! At Indie Royale the starting price is just $3.99.


Leading this Indie Gaming love-in is the latest installment in Croteam's phenomenally popular series: Serious Sam 3: BFE.


Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom. It's available for Windows, Mac or Linux on Steam. It was developed by Croteam, is offered thanks to Devolver Digital and was released in November 2011. The game serves as a prequel to the original indie sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter. 1UP said of Serious Sam 3: BFE that it's "a game that deserves to be played, because it shows what shooters were and could have been. It shows that there's more to the genre than what AAA developers have shown us in the past decade". For the hopelessly romantic among you, Serious Sam 3: BFE includes a great co-op mode!


Next is Shad'O from Okugi Studio. A unique tower defense game that will immerse you in the story of William, a 9-year-old boy lost in his own mind, fighting to save his memory. He will get help from his luminous companions in his struggle to remember what happened to him. Available for Windows from Steam, Desura & DRM-free. Shad'O is a beautiful game about light and dark. IGN said "it distinguishes itself through its striking art design and compelling narrative". Shad'O was only released in September 2012. We've got the Collector's Edition which includes the game and the soundtrack.


Another recently released game in the Valentine's Bundle 2.0 is the pure 2d platformer Oozi: Earth Adventure, available for Windows on Desura & DRM-free with the OST. It was developed by Awesome Game Studio. The game has a lovely hand drawn art style tied to some hardcore, old school platforming. Gaming Nexus reviewed the game with the comment that it's an "adventure that really conjures up memories of classic platformers from the 8-bit and 16-bit days". Oozi: Earth Adventure is in Steam Greenlight right now so don't forget to upvote it if you like this game.


The next game in this bundle is Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time from Stickmen Studios, available for Windows from Steam, Desura & DRM-free with a Mac version too. This game is the first Doc Clock time travelling adventure in which you can invent almost anything out of everything you find, from catapults to incredible flying machines. The game features sarcasm, misguided robots and a cat! There are wallpapers for the game included in the Valentine's Bundle 2.0.


Last up we have 2 games from Boss Baddie: Lunnye Devitsy and Wake. Together they make up the Lunar Pack. Lunnye Devitsy is a mystery puzzle platformer about a little alien who falls off the moon and has to make his way back. In Wake, an engineer is trapped on a sinking ship and he has to navigate his way to the surface above. Both games are available for Windows on Desura & DRM-free and we've got the OST. Both games in the Lunar Pack are new 2013 versions launched in this bundle.

Finally, those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Valentine's Bundle 2.0 will get an ambient electronic treat from Tim Wright of CoLD SToRAGE, the recently released 'SLIPSTREAM [volume 2]'. As with SLIPSTREAM Vol. 1 from the last Indie Royale bundle, this album features 64 bit digital re-mix / re-masters of Tim's tracks from WipEout and WipEout 2097. It also includes some special remixes and exclusive bonus tracks that weren't on WipEout. These tracks were created around the same time, so they share a similar flavour. This album is available in MP3 and FLAC format.

You can find more information on the Valentine's Bundle 2.0, 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 lovely indie gaming to look forward to!

I'm not the biggest fan of tower defense, and feel its an oversaturated genre right now. That being said, this game has a lot of charm, and much to my confusion, seems to get FAR lower scores than it deserves.
It's a fairly solid game, made even better by the whimsical and memorable art style.

It would have gotten better scores if it was a voxel game with crafting and no other gameplay. That is how you get a good score on Desura. Make a Minecraft clone. Sad but true.

I would really love to buy this game if there was a native linux version.... since it's made in unity, that shouldn't be too difficult, right?

If there will be a linux client I will definetly buy it! Please port the game to Linux. I know many people how would buy the linux version, too.

And you are right, should not be to hard to port it due to the Unity engine! :)

Loved the video so took a punt and bought it, loving it so far. Really feels different to most tower defence games, in fact most of the time I forget it is one. Being able to unlock more powerful options and spells depending on your preferences is great. And the idea is refreshing too.

I would have to say good job but there is a major bug/glitch problem I seem to have noticed and it does affect the game greatly.

MY companion the "Puncher" seems to slam down on the enemy egg shells and they seem to take no damage at all.

Nevermind just closed the game, opened it again and it ran better. Punchers did damage.

Disappointed, disappointed, disappointed..... I don't have other words to express my disappointment. All the videos were tempting, screenshots were attractive, key features were original. The game is far below my expectations: the gameplay is not well-ordered, the story is not very interesting, the dubbing is quite average, I sweated blood to play the game, the fog donesn't bring much to the game. On the other hand, the companions are cute, the whole atmosphere is out of the ordinary for a TD, but…
