Report article RSS Feed Indie Underdog Pack Launches Second Bundle

The IUP's second bundle has launched, featuring five Desura games for a bargain price

Posted by ifss on Jun 11th, 2012


After the initial crowd-funding bundle earlier in the year, the Indie Underdog Pack (IUP) has returned in a fair bit of style, using imaginative promotional ideas such as a comic book and secret messages to unlock bonus content that can be solved by a decoder ring.

The bundle features 5 indie games (detailed below), all redeemable on Desura, for a minimum price of $3.99.

However, those who choose to pay over $8.00 for the bundle will also get immediate access to the bonus content: three more games (available as downloads, for Windows only), two chiptune albums, four soundtracks, and artwork.

These bonuses will also be unlocked for everybody as and when certain milestones are reached - the chiptune albums by Slime Girls and EvilWezil were unlocked when 250 bundles were sold.

Since underdogs should support underdogs, 10% of the IUP bundle's takings will be donated to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).


The games:

Screenshots

48 Chambers (Windows, Discord Games)

48 Chambers is a simple, yet challenging 2D game about movement and timing. Race against the clock for the high score as you collect orbs, dodge bullets and blades, and attempt to reach each chamber's exit in one piece.

Defeat 48 increasingly difficult and treacherous levels to become the master of the 48 Chambers!

Clone Wolf screenshots

Clone Wolf: Protector (Linux/Mac/Windows, Jarnik)

The multi-bearded adventure game where you get to control up to 32 player characters simultaneously! Meet Wolf, a bearded carpenter, who has lost his family and decided to wander the world and protect anyone in distress. He owns a magical medallion that can instantly create his double to aid him in his fight.

The game combines the 2D platformer and tower-defense genres: defend each village from incoming monster hordes, using the combined strength of your player character clones.


Drains screens

Drains (Windows, Pathea Games)

One day, a man known only as the "King of the Seas" led a huge army and conquered the undersea world. Not stopping there, he closed the six drains of the world, causing the ocean to steadily flood over everything. With no place to go, the land dwellers are getting hopeless. Now, it's up to you to save the day!

Level editor

Ichi (Mac/Windows, Stolen Couch Games)

Ichi is an easy to play but challenging one button puzzle game. Don't be deceived by the game's simplistic look, it’s a brain-twister for sure!

Collect golden rings by rotating objects, using teleporters, breaking blocks and more. If that isn’t enough, the game includes a level editor that allows you to create your own levels and share them with anyone around the globe!

Version 1.0 Screenshots

Tesla: The Weather Man (Windows, Thoughtquake Studios)

The year is 1891 and the triumph of alternating current has sent Edison into a violent rage. It is up to you, playing as Nikola Tesla, to defeat an army of DC-powered robots and prove that you are the true greatest man of science!

Wield the powers of lightning, levitation, rain, sun, and snow to solve physics puzzles and put a stop to Edison's destruction.
