Nuclear Dawn is the first game to offer a full FPS and RTS experience, within a single gameplay model, without crippling or diluting either side of the game.
As a soldier, explore war-torn post-apocalyptic landscapes, modelled on modern cities, and take the fight to your enemies as armoured, assault or stealth infantry, using various weapons across ten distinct load-outs to accomplish your objectives. The first person shooter action in Nuclear Dawn is hard, fast and unforgiving, with weapons that rely on skill and tactics more than on twitch reflexes and map memorization.
Then, take Nuclear Dawn above the action, and play as the commander. Organize your fellow players in squads, and assign them to tactical objectives. Plan the resource routes for your army, and production of your structures for forward deployment. Exploit the terrain and resource point locations to block your enemies’ advance, and crush their plans in an iron fist. Research and implement new technologies to give your soldiers the edge on the battlefield, and set up forward bases to lead the assault on your enemies, with a full complement of defensive and offensive structures to choose from, to build your perfect fortress.
Replay some of the greatest hits from previous Indie Royale bundles in the Replay Bundle Vol. 1. Back by popular demand - grab great titles that you may have missed the first time around! Included in this bundle are FPS and RTS hybrid experience Nuclear Dawn, futuristic tower-defense game Defense Grid: The Awakening, classic 2D adventure game Gemini Rue, and two fast-paced dungeon adventures Soulcaster I and II. Also included is a very special 56-track album bonus (a $20 value!) for those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during this bundle, the 8 Bit Weapon Collection.
First up is InterWave Studios' Nuclear Dawn, available for Windows and Mac on Steam, which offers a full FPS and RTS hybrid experience, without crippling or diluting either side of the game. Players can storm a building as an assault trooper, cling to the shadows with active stealth, or unleash incredible firepower from a high-tech suit of exo-armor, or lead as a commander, marshalling resources and deploying weapons and equipment for your troops. PCGamer praises Nuclear Dawn calling it a "surprisingly deep and well-designed FPS/RTS hybrid."
Also included is Hidden Path Entertainment's Defense Grid: The Awakening, an acclaimed, futuristic tower-defense game for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free. GameSpot calls it a "quintessential example" of the genre and "compulsively playable" for newcomers and skilled players, as they attempt to fight off hoards of increasingly complex alien assaults. Defense Grid includes *six* additional items of DLC: the Borderlands DLC, Resurgence Map Packs 1-4, and an upgrade from the first Indie Royale, the 'GLaDOS from Portal'-starring You Monster DLC! (The additional DLC is available for Steam only.)
Next up is Wadjet Eye Games' Gemini Rue, available for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free. A previous Independent Games Festival finalist, the Joshua Nuernberger-created title is a moody, classic 2D adventure game, with a futuristic sci-fi setting and hand-drawn backgrounds galore. IGN raves about Gemini Rue: "[w]ith (for the most part) seamless, intuitive gameplay, impressive atmosphere and one of most well-crafted and interesting storylines seen in recent years, Gemini Rue is a game not just for adventure fans, but for anyone who loves a good, gritty yarn."
Last up are two acclaimed retro RPG-defense games: Soulcaster I and II available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. 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. DIY Gamer says of Soulcaster II "It's simple, it's focused, it's compelling and it's just plain fun. The simple retro aesthetic works well, and the soundtrack is full of energy and toe-tapping beats. Grab it."
Again, for those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent for the Replay Bundle Vol. 1 get a chiptune masterpiece, the 8 Bit Weapon Collection from 8 Bit Weapon. This 56-track album covers over a decade of groundbreaking work by the chipmusic band 8 Bit Weapon and ComputeHer. Featuring 3 hours of chiptastic sounds, the tracks come from multiple albums, singles, remixes and rare demos, and previously unreleased tracks.

Anyone still play this online?
if so how many players on average?
2 full server now + 7 servers with players!
Nice game, but I feel for three thinks to add:
More customization, not as much as newer CoD titles maybe, but just one slot far gadgets, hm. Also more weapons etc. And a melee attack for any class.
An thing to end the game. Just for the point of a tie where one faction corners the other one, there should be the ability to build a structure that launches a bomb, rocket etc. that destroys the bunker in a single hit. Cost intensive for sure.
Timed charges for stealth kits. Sabotage kit is not even able to destroy a single building with it 3 red's. Nice sabotage...
Better would be if you could lay down 1 or 2 timed charges, and every enemy player has a chance to pick them up and defuse them. Maybe even with a little minigame or something, just et sure that this gets fixed.
Any way to get this? I own it on steam, or is this a non-tranferable game between the two?
If you already have the game then what more do you need ?
I personally use Desura for my in development games, and Steam for my regular complete games. It is just how I sort things. I always read game updates on Desura, while on Steam I don't really bother.
It requires Steam to run though.
between 2 what?
