Stained is a side-scrolling, platforming and combat action game set in an ancient, mysterious castle featuring detailed 3D environments with a continually changing game world. Events in Stained are triggered by breaking objects placed in and around the castle, and outcomes are determined by the combination of glass pieces that litter the ground, leading to a variety of experiences. Novel ways to break objects have to be thought of at times, which will keep the player guessing what the next puzzle will be. In any fight in the game victory is usually temporary, as defeated foes may form again, or reassemble to form entirely new ones. The gameplay is fully interactive and physics based – each character’s uncanny abilities have to be kept in mind to think of innovative ways to proceed through the game!

Hi Aythreuk, what is the main reason for not liking it so much? Any input is welcome so that we can try and improve.

@Uncomplex

I can't speak for Aythreuk, but for starters why is the (extremely restrictive) DRM for Tropical Heat not disclosed anywhere?

And on that same note, why would you include a game with DRM in the first place? There must be hundreds of game developers out there who have games they would love to be part of an Indie Royale bundle, who don't treat their customers like criminals.

I don't know if it's changed since you saw it, but currently the bundle page says: "Tropical Heat Jet Ski Racing for: windows (with limited use CD key), mac, desura". So it's sortof disclosed now, although the specifics aren't.

Scratch that - It has changed. It also does include the specifics in the details: "DRM PROTECTION ALLOWS 3 ACTIVATIONS PER PURCHASE". So it's disclosed *now*, but that doesn't help anyone who purchased already.

I was pretty upset about that DRM, too. I am actually happy with the bundle in general, though, as it doesn't include any of those hateful Steam-only games and the selection is good. These are games I had seen on Desura and considered purchasing. Seeing them in this bundle made my day. I hope you will contain to release bundles like this, but without games containing the nasty DRM that ThreeSon mentioned.
