New game debuts: all new McDROID & 6180 The Moon, new versions Cloudphobia & Wimp: Who Stole My Pants? plus Cognition Ep 1 & Master of Alchemy.

Posted by redblueq1 on Mar 9th, 2013

The Debut Bundle from Indie Royale has 6 games all of which are debuts of some kind; 4 are all new games or new versions, 2 are the studio’s debut game.

We’ve got: Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller - Ep. 1 The Hangman; McDROID; Master of Alchemy - Rise of the Mechanologists; CloudPhobia; Wimp: Who Stole My Pants? and 6180 The Moon.

We think it’s really important to back developers by bringing their new games to players; this helps them get their games noticed on Greenlight, by the press and, ultimately, to pay for the games we want. We hope you agree and show your support by going straight to Indie Royale to get The Debut Bundle.

The lead game in The Debut Bundle is Cognition: An Erica Reed Thriller - Episode 1 The Hangman from Phoenix Online Studios. This adventure game is the studio’s debut game and was first released about 4 months ago. AtomicGamer said of Cognition “an adult-level adventure game full of interesting mechanics, a professional voice cast, great music and a compelling heroine”. It’s a crime thriller with some very clever ideas. Cognition is available on Desura and Windows & Mac DRM-Free. We’ve also got the prequel comic and the game is in Steam Greenlight.

Following up, we have McDroid from the international Elefantopia. This is the game’s full debut; it’s never been released in this form before. This arcade RTS game is set in a colorful cel-shaded world in which you defend your shuttle against a variety of crazed alien species. It's available from Desura and on Windows, Mac & Linux DRM-Free. It is also in Steam Greenlight and we’ve got the soundtrack.

Next up is Master of Alchemy - Rise of the Mechanologists from Darkwave Games. This game is the studio’s PC/Mac debut game. It’s an original puzzle game with some clever game mechanics. We’ve got it for Desura and Windows & Mac DRM-Free.

Another debut is Cloudphobia from Rockin’ Android. It’s a beautiful horizontally-scrolling shoot 'em up that sees you protecting your mothership from destruction whilst trying to reach the boss before time runs out. Cloudphobia is available on Windows from Desura and DRM-Free.

Wimp: Who Stole My Pants? from Belarus’s Flexile Studio is the game’s debut on PC/Mac. Wimp is a cute platformer with over 80 levels of puzzling challenge. We've got it on Desura, Windows & Mac DRM-Free with the OST too.

Finally we have 6180 The Moon which was co-created by South Korea's indie game studios: Turtle Cream and PokPoong Games. In this very original platformer, the top and bottom of the screen are connected allowing players to make delightfully long jumps with no fear of "slipping" to their death. 6180 The Moon has never been released before and has been selected for this year’s experimental games workshop at GDC. We’ve got it on Windows from Desura with the OST. It’s also on Steam Greenlight now.

Those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Debut Bundle will get Fearofdark’s debut full chiptune album: Motorway. This album is available in MP3 and FLAC format.

All the games are available on PC with Cognition, Master of Alchemy, Wimp & McDROID also on Mac and McDROID Linux too. The Debut Bundle also includes a comic for Cognition, 3 tracks from McDROID and the sound track to Wimp and 6180.

There are interviews with some of the developers from earlier Indie Royale bundles on our YouTube channel; check in for the latest videos.

You can find more information on The Debut 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 new indie gaming to look forward to!

This is quite unexpected, that this bundle dont contain any Steam codes (at this time). As non-steam user i cant care less, butits still amusing.
Now, about games, its getting really funny (and annoying) this intersection with IndieGameStanddeals. Before they was repeatin your IR stuff, now IR repeat them - first Krunch, now Cognition and McDroid.

Well, it's difficult to already be on Steam for a debut unless you're quite high-profile, so that makes sense. What's surprising is a "debut" bundle containing several games I already own :P Oh well, it's a good selection and CloudPhobia looks great - and Indie Royale was thoughtful enough to release a bundle on my birthday - so how can I refuse? ;)

@Toyotame - I guess you are missing the point here. The bundle is to promote the games and make more ppl aware of them. Hence the repeats... Read the IR blog if you need more details...
Further, it is not unusuall for IR to host gaems with desura only keys.

Will Steam keys be provided if they do make it onto Steam via Greenlight?

Probably. They've added keys to old bundles as games became available on Steam in the past. Don't see why they'd stop now.

Pity that for me the status of Master of alchemy is "Preordered" and client does not allow me to download it.

I'm a little confused, does the bundle have just the first episode of Cognition, or will we get the other episodes later?

@pezhead53 it is written on IR that it is 1st ep only.
