This story takes place in a place vaguely reminiscent of modern-day Japan. In the twenty years since the first Human Tank was developed, the war raging between the Empire of Japon and the Kingdom of Japon has turned into a proxy war fought between Human Tanks on both sides.
The Empire of Japon once ruled the entire land of Japon. Now diminished and cornered, the Empire prepares to make its last stand as the tanks of the Kingdom of Japon draw close to its capital. Shoutaro Daihon’ei, Lieutenant of the Imperial Army moves out to the battlefield, followed closely by the loyal Human Tanks in his company.

The Mighty Bundle from Indie Royale has 6 super strong games for you. We've got Waveform; Avadon: The Black Fortress; Zafehouse Diaries; Derrick the Deathfin; Tidalis and War of the Human Tanks.

First up in The Mighty Bundle is Waveform from Eden Industries. This fantastic game sees the player navigate the beauty and hazards of the solar system while riding on a wave of light in an innovative action-puzzle game. Gaming Nexus said "controlling a wave of light is executed flawlessly through beautifully rendered levels and a challenging, but addictive gameplay experience". Waveform is available on Windows and Mac from Steam, on Desura and DRM-Free for PC, Mac and Linux.

Next we have Avadon: The Black Fortress from Spiderweb Software. This epic role playing fantasy saga sets the player the task of protecting The Pact to save the day. RPG Fan said it "reminded me of some of the best games I've ever played" and gave it an Editor's Choice award. It's available from Steam & DRM-Free for Windows, Mac & Linux and on Desura. We've also got a hint book if you need it!

Next up is Zafehouse Diaries from Screwfly Studios. It's a tactical game of survival, planning, resource management and problem-solving. Zafehouse: Diaries uses a text diary-based interface for a game which is different every time you play it. We've got it for Windows on Desura and DRM-Free.

Following along in The Mighty Bundle is Derrick the Deathfin from Different Tuna. An underwater papercraft game that's also a fast paced arcade game. Derrick the Deathfin is available on Windows through Desura and Windows & Mac DRM-Free.

Another strong game in The Mighty Bundle is Tidalis from Arcen Games. A block-based puzzle game with casual appeal, hardcore depth, and an addictive "streams" mechanic. Eurogamer said "Tidalis is a charmingly lo-fi package that positively drowns you in content." The game is available for Windows from Steam.

Finally we have War of the Human Tanks from Fruitbat Factory. In this story driven strategy game that pits the group of Human Tanks commanded by the player against the opposing Commanding Officers and their forces. We've got it on Windows from Desura. It's also on Steam Greenlight now and we've got the soundtrack.

Those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during The Mighty Bundle will get Darkman007's heavy chiptune album: Chiptunes 2012. This album is available in MP3 and FLAC format.

We've started to put interviews with some of the developers whose games we've featured in different Indie Royale bundles on our YouTube channel; check in for the latest videos.

You can find more information on The Mighty Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, on its official website or via its Facebook, Twitter and Google+ pages. Grab this bundle now while the price is still low (unless kind purchasers lower the price) so that you'll have hours of heavy-weight indie gaming fun to look forward to!

Any way that we could get Steam keys for this if we already own it here?

Hey umm... I love the concept of this game, but unfortunately... its unplayable for me because the visual-novel style text messages at the bottom of the screen flash like a strobe light. I can still read them...

but this rapid flashing isn't good for me as I DO have epilepsy.

So yeah... this bug is preventing me from safely playing the game.

Any way to fix it?

I'm running this on a Windows 7 laptop if that helps.

Hi, sorry to hear you have trouble. Have you tried in both windowed mode and fullscreen? You can switch from System->Fullscreen.
Haven't heard about that problem before, brings to mind how windows sometimes behave when you get a popup like Skype atop a game. So please make sure you aren't running some other program in the background that could be causing it.

Just tried it with steam off.

Same result.

Already tried both. The only other background programs I'm running are Steam and Desura.
With me appearing in offline mode to my friends on Steam. And I haven't added anyone on Desura yet.

I could try it with steam off I guess... but I'm not sure if that's actually going to make any difference.

Try running this without the Desura client.

I'm not encountering the rapid flashing you're describing.

You can do this by clicking the play button on the Desura website and selecting Direct Download instead of the Desura client link.

Did you try running it in a window instead of full screen?

Voted for you guys on Greenlight. Just got this from the Groupees bundle, really worth it. The story is pretty funny so far, actually made me laugh aloud a couple of times. Keep up the good work :)

Hi, what kind of problem was it? Please try re-downloading, you can try both Desura client and standalone download too.
