A malicious being named The Devourer has swallowed the great pantheon of gods. Seeking escape, the trapped gods have deceived great warriors, zealous adherents and placed them on a faceless world called FORGE, designed sacrifice the weakest of these warriors in order to grow their own power. Choosing one of five unique warrior classes, the player must battle head-to-head with other players in a bid to free their god from the clutches of The Devourer. Armed with a set of powerful and unique abilities as well as a powerful and deadly ally, each warrior must overcome the varied challenges of Forge where every kill is a sacrifice and every sacrifice brings them one step closer to freedom.
The Hammerhead Bundle is the latest ferocious collection in Indie Royale’s on-going quest to bring you the hottest and most interesting indie games out there in the wilds of underground development.
This week’s bundle is worth in excess of $70 when purchased separately and brings together Primordia, Pressure, Forge, Richard and Alice and Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage.
Wadjet Eye’s Primordia is a modern adventure game set in a far distant future where humans are extinct and robots rule the world. Described by the magazine Games Master as “a throwback to the genre's glory days” this smart, philosophically minded journey sees you accompany Horatio Nullbuilt and his sarcastic helper Crispin as they attempt to fix their starship in order to leave the planet. With humorous, intelligent writing and a striking art style, Primordia offers an adventure everyone will want to chase through to its dizzying conclusion.
Primordia is available for Windows on Steam, DRM-free & Desura.
By combining an over-the-top arcade-style racing game with shoot ‘em up mechanics, Pressure is, as one critic put it, the “2D shooter evolved”. Set in a vibrant steampunk world, you play as Morgan, tasked with collecting and returning water to his river after it's been stolen for use in a "uber-spa" by the evil Count Soap II. Race through checkpoints destroying enemy vehicles in order to keep your ‘pressure’ gauge filled as you compete across 30 levels. A local and online multiplayer mode allows you to team up with others in this unique and comical blend of game styles.
Pressure is available for Windows on Steam, DRM-free & Desura.
Forge is an online, class based multiplayer shooter set in a distinct fantasy universe. Forge features only the best aspects of MMO and FPS class based combat to provide a multiplayer gameplay experience unlike anything you've played before. Armed with a set of powerful and unique abilities as well as a powerful and deadly ally, each warrior must overcome the varied challenges of Forge where every kill is a sacrifice and every sacrifice brings them one step closer to freedom.
Forge is available for Windows on Steam.
This minimalist tale of two prisoners trapped in an underground facility was described by Destructoid as “thoughtful, slow-burning [and] poignant.” Through a series of affecting conversations, the pair -- one of whom has been incarcerated for murder, the other for deserting the military -- open up about their backstories drawing one another, and the player, into their lives. At the heart of this often bleak, melancholic game lies an appealing warmth, one that stays with you long after the story is concluded.
Richard and Alice is available for Windows on DRM-free & Desura.
Take to the open road in Gas Guzzlers: Combat Carnage, a fast-paced 3D combat racing game that features a host of different vehicles, weapons, upgrades, on-track bonuses as well as distinctive and highly detailed environments. Start your career with a beginner’s performance vehicle and work your way up the rankings by earning money in a series of challenging races. Along with developing your driving and fighting skills, you must invest your hard-earned money wisely in order to maximise your chances on the track.

This is Free on Steam, do not buy
I thought this game was FREE on steam?
Or is this a diffrent game?
It is free, I guess desura didn't update that.
Not bad game, but it's always kinda irritating seeing a game here that says "Requires Steam to run". Been on sale a lot on Steam, as well as in bundles. I suppose they have to add a storefront for it, seems to be required for IndieRoyale games but I'd really rather they just add an info page, but without the option to purchase it.
But then again, another place that sells games is good for the devs. though if they really wanted that they should have just did the work and made a Desura uploaded one to justify it if we purchase individually here.
they are indie games not steam games go cry away
yea i got this on gamersgate MONTHS before it was even mentioned on steam. its an ok game, just not worth 20$ (thats the bend me over and call me honey price). i think they only put the MSRP @ 20$ so they could make it look like it was on sale constantly.
Just a heads up currently on Indie Royale as part on a bundle
Indie royale confuses the hell outta me
in that case perhaps videogames are NOT the hobby for you.. may i suggest the putting the square peg in the square hole game instead.
This is a great game, despite it's currently unfinished state - it's a work in progress. However, I don't understand why Steam games are being sold through Desura. Just buy it from Steam, don't support this trend of selling Steam games through other services. It's pointless to buy from other sources anyway since you will need Steam regardless of where you buy. Do buy it though, it was worth the $20 even in its alpha/beta state - buy it from Steam, though.
**** steam! if anything buy it through the developers directly, why the hell would ANYONE buy ANYTHING through steam if they could avoid it? they have the worst prices ANYWHERE because they take 30% of the price of the game right off the top.
stupid people shouldnt have keyboards.
