When one gives up living and using his soul, he can't only lose the soul but can also devote it to death... Before souls completely die they stick in The Void - an odd space between life and death. There is an outside chance to survive in The Void and even to come back from it. This chance is The Color - the only food of a dying soul wandering through the mournful realms of The Void, governed by monstrous Brothers and malicious Sisters, who are desperately struggling for the last drops of it. The Color is not only the sense of life of these mysterious creatures but also gives power and vital force to the whole Void. The Color gives you power to do almost everything even to get out of death clutches if you gain enough Color, but there is a great lack of it in the arid deserts of The Void. There is Color only for one. Be the one, get your lost soul back!

The Indie Royale game bundle site returns with the Graduation Bundle, offering five fantastic independent games available at a bargain, fluctuating price - including cult Russian first-person classic The Void, an exclusive PC debut for 8-bit zombie shooter Dead Pixels, and multiple copies of multiplayer murder mystery The Ship. Plus you get early Steam Beta access to hot F2P action-RTS AirMech with an Indie Royale-exclusive in-game item code!

Headlining the bundle is Ice Pick Lodge's cult classic action-adventureThe Void, available for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free. In this beautifully art-directed first-person game from the Russian creators of Pathologic, you must guide your lost soul through the Void, a space trapped between life and death. Use color as your health and ammo as you discover the dark secrets hidden by the beautiful Sisters and monstrous Brothers. PC Gamer UK called The Void, "An astounding world, and a flagship for the imagination and capability of independent game developers." Clash with golems, bloodthirsty predators and other spawn of the Void as you fight for your lost soul.

Next up is CSR Studios' retro zombie side-scrolling shooter Dead Pixels, available for the first time ever on Windows for Desura and DRM-free. In this conversion of the hit 8-bit style Xbox Live Indie Games title, a toxic waste spill has found its way into the water supply and the dead have risen from their graves. Take on waves of zombies as you make your way to salvation before it's too late. The city is never the same twice, so there's always something hiding around the corner! Featuring 22 types of zombies to blast, upgradable weapons and items, and all the free additions from the XBLIG version, such as the "Last Stand" and "The Solution" game modes, it's time to get your boomstick ready.

Also featured is Outerlight's first-person, multiplayer-centric nautical action game The Ship (now owned by Blazing Griffin), available for Windows on Steam only, and with each copy coming with two extra Steam keys to send to your friends! (Those copies each have one extra gift activation too!) Set in a 1920s cruise ship, players must murder their assigned target while at the same time avoiding the player hunting them. Be careful not to be spotted murdering your victim, or it's off to jail. Use all the weapons at your disposal, including crowbars, swords, flare guns, and many more. Featuring a unique bonus single-player story and an addictive online mode, Source Engine title The Ship is unlike any other first-person experience.

The bundle also includes The Odd Man Out's illuminating puzzle platformer 1000 Amps, available for Windows and Mac on Steam, Desura and DRM-Free. As Plug, you are charged with restoring the expansive Amp-Tree-System. You light up whatever you touch, and Rock Paper Shotgun says of the game, "It’s witty in its minimalist design, its use of sound cues is exemplary, the jumping is pixel perfect, and the ability to put a smile on my face with every single completed room is a joyous thing." Solve puzzles and teleport to new areas to bring light to the whole world!

Rounding out the bundle is Monster Jail Games' eccentric Metroidvania-ish 8-bit platformer LaserCat, available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Explore the castle of the evil Wizzord, as you search for the keys littered throughout the world. Featuring wacky trivia questions and a little cat ghost left behind every time you die, LaserCat has an uncommonly good sense of humor, with cues taken from games old (Jet Set Willy) and new (VVVVVV).


Included in the bundle is a special exclusive bonus, a Steam Beta key to hot F2P action-RTS AirMech with Indie Royale-only in-game item code - the Graduation Cap (+5% persistent XP)! NOTE: The Graduation Cap is redeemable in-game by clicking on "Store" and then "Codes." The much-hyped AirMech is in closed beta on Steam right now, making these codes very hard to come by, so infinite thanks to Carbon Games for partnering with us to offer these keys to all our valued customers. (And we'll be unlocking one more game for all buyers during the bundle itself - watch our social media feeds for info!)

Update - Bonus Game Unlocked! As if one bonus game wasn't enough, here's another one: Stolen Couch Games' entertaining puzzler Ichi, which is available for PC and Mac on Desura and DRM-Free. What started out as a challenge for Jay van Hutten to develop a puzzle game evolved into a seemingly simple one-button game that has 50 brain-twisting puzzles that require everything from teleporting to breaking blocks. Plus it has a level editor that can be used to create levels and share them across the globe.

Finally, those who pay $7 USD or their currency equivalent during the Graduation Bundle get Cheap Dinosaurs' self-titled album in .FLAC and HQ .MP3 - the long-awaited first official release from the chiptune prog rockers, and normally a $6 value on its own.


More information on the Graduation Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, is available at its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages. And a final reminder - the more buyers, the more the price will increase, unless kind buyers drop the price for everyone else, so hop on and buy soon to avoid disappointment!

When it comes to partial nudity, yes!

On the other hand, when it is about violence, you really never want your country to legislate what Germany does to all the gamers over here..

You are talking about WWII here all of a sudden? Are you retarded? The US and brits didnt make it to berlin because operation market garden was a "stretegic defeat" The US did help the ALLIES deeply in in africa and US did take france from germany but ur saying they did good because they know how to shoot? And ur saying they won the wars because of how good they are in games and germany should learn from us? Im american and ur making us look really bad!

Well, we won WWII NOT because we were the better country. No. Germany had us beat in terms of technology and possibly tactics. Rommel was quite possibly the best military strategist ever. Even Patton looked up to him, and Patton was a great military strategist. But America joined in late, Germany was spread too far out, their best troops were being killed in Russia, and we baited them into moving their troops into a terrible position. As far as every other wasr, we've been fighting poor countries that can't afford a long term war.

Russians in Berlin, holding the line in Stalingrad (nowadays Wolvograd) 100.000's of allied country soldiers (Canadian, English, Polish etc. etc.) dying in airborne drops, armored support operations, mechanical endorsements. America was, like ZeroShot13 just noted, part of the alliance, netiher were they small, or big. They were a gear in the greater allied machine. It's not America that won the war, it were the allied forces. Kudo's to ZeroShot13 for being a realistic American that hasn't caught the national-pride-over-everything virus in a country that confronts it's citizens with the concept 24/7.

This game is an odd one, presenting you with a complex, sometimes scary and morbid world and an equally complex and morbid character gallery. What begins as an adventure of exploration with a handful of spells at your disposal soon expands to involve some rather difficult strategy as you, the player, travel the game space, attempting to build up power by setting up farms and mining. The narrative is one of the more involved ones I have encountered in playing games, although it's complexity and the…
