Zeno Clash is an action/fighting game set in a punk fantasy world. The game blends the first person genre with the fighting game genre and the combat is generally up close and brutal. The original visuals, which make full use of the Source engine features, are a refreshing deviation from traditional fantasy games.


Engaging melee combat in first person:
The combat in Zeno Clash is up, close & personal. The new melee combat system allows players to perform a variety of movements like deflect & elude combos, knockback finisher punches and punishing grab attacks. The depth of the combat system will put player's skills to the test. Learn new attacks as the game progresses and confronts you with more formidable foes.

Fantastic visuals powered by the source engine:
Players will be immersed in a fantastic world, beautiful and disturbing at the same time. The unprecedented art style brings a fresh new approach to the first person genre. The surreal environments and characters will keep player's wanting to discover more.

Survival mode challenges:
Jump right into the action in engaging unlockable "tower challenges". The player must overcome enemy waves to progress through the tower levels. The game will rate the player in different categories like speed and performance. A leaderboards system will rank you against your friends, so the challenge never ends.

Deep storyline:
Zeno Clash is a story driven game. Player's will play the role of Ghat; the son of a impressive hermaphrodite creature called Father-Mother, whose children form the most powerful clan in the city of Halstedom. Ghat must escape from his family and start an incredible journey with his female companion Deadra, who will aid him in the dangerous lands of Zenozoik.

Bizarre weapons:
An unusual arsenal of weapons is available for those who can manage to keep the enemy at a range. The eccentric weapons are built from scraps and junk, but they are most effective when used properly. Hammers and clubs will be the most effective when fighting heavy characters that can only be brought down with extreme force.

Beautiful soundtrack:
The beautiful musical score is as varied as the game's settings. The original soundtrack will keep players immersed in the different environments and key parts of the story.

The Indie Royale game bundle site returns with the Valentine's Bundle, offering five stellar titles gamers can enjoy now, or gift to their Valentine to arrive on Valentine's Day.

A particular highlight of this bundle is Ace Team's fantastical first-person action-adventure Zeno Clash (on Steam for PC). Using Valve's own Source engine, and dubbed as 'Dark Messiah meets Double Dragon', its unique first-person fighting gameplay and exotic setting helped earn an Independent Games Festival nomination for excellence in visual arts in 2009.

Another visually stunning, IGF-nominated game in the Valentine's Bundle is State of Play Games' beautiful puzzle adventure Lume (on Steam for PC and Mac, Desura for PC and Linux, DRM-free PC, Mac and Linux download). Lume was filmed on a real-life set built entirely out of paper and cardboard. In this first episode, players navigate their way through puzzles to restore the power to grandfather's house and uncover a deeper mystery behind the town's blackout.

Moving on, a Valentine's bundle wouldn't be as hot without some fire. Therefore, Big Sandwich Games offers its scorching single and multiplayer arcade-strategy game Hoard (on Steam for PC and Mac). Players control a fire-breathing, high-flying dragon whose job is to hoard as much gold as possible, while destroying merchant wagons, buildings, and anything else that attempts to steal its stash. Making this Bundle even sweeter, two extended-play Hoard DLC packs (individual Steam codes for both PC and Mac) are unlocked at bundle start. Dynamite Roll! and Flame-Broiled SANDwich! offer players lots of new maps, enemies, powerups, achievements, and even an entirely new desert continent to scorch and scour.

Finally, Indie Royale is presenting the world premiere PC versions of retro RPG-defense games: Soulcaster I and II (on Desura for PC, and DRM-free PC download). Acclaimed indie developer MagicalTimeBean offers up two fast-paced dungeon adventures, where players tactically summon the powers of immortal warriors to battle hordes of monsters, discover secrets, collect treasure and buy powerful upgrades for their immortal allies.

As before, the Indie Royale bundle series runs on a five-day model where the price will automatically increase as more people buy the bundle. Generous purchasers, however, who choose to pay more than the current minimum will earn One Life Left's eclectic 'Music To Play Games By Too' compilation, available for the first time ever digitally.

Indie Royale was co-created by Gamasutra sister site and independent game download service Desura. More information on the Valentine's Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, is available at its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages - and remember check back during or after the bundle for more special bonuses for all buyers.

Are you playing normal, hard, or extreme? When I first encountered father-mother I just ran around the little columns and kept shooting with the fish guns. I don't think I lost any health, and it might be easier not to try punching when father-mother's crippled.

The first time I launched the game it kept minimizing and maximizing and all I could do to fix it was restart my computer. Otherwise, no.
