Tidalis is a block-based puzzle game with casual appeal, hardcore depth, and an addictive new "streams" mechanic. The basic rules of the game are this: blocks fall down into the board and have a color and an arrow direction. If a stack of blocks exceeds the height of the board, you lose. In order to clear blocks, you must right-click and drag paths through the arrows to set up chain reactions of like-colored blocks.

Post news Report RSS Shattered Haven and Tidalis Featured in Pure Indie Bundle

Shattered Haven and Tidalis are included in the Pure Indie Bundle and news on the latest updates on our titles -- including some new info on Bionic Dues.

Posted by on



Our puzzle games Tidalis and Shattered Haven are included as part of Bundle Stars' new
Pure Indie Bundle. It's $4, and beyond those two titles you also get: Brainpipe, Power of Defense, Data Jammers, Wake, Lunnye Devitsy and Gumboy Crazy Adventures (all titles come with Steam keys). You'll also receive in-game credit for free-to-play turn-based strategy game Iron Grip: Marauders.

While I can't speak to the rest of the games in the package (as I haven't played them myself), the total price tag represents a savings of $11 for the pair of Arcen titles alone. Don't wait to jump on the offer if it looks up your alley -- the deal, as is standard with this type of promotion, only runs for a limited time.

Elsewhere Around the Arcen Compound
To paraphrase how the guys on IndieDB put it: Skyward Collapse 1.4 -- An update so big, it has its own beta. A couple of beta patches have hit since, with the latest version introducing a pair of new defensive features.

Not to be outdone, AI War has received a weighty beta update of its own. The first significant patch since 7.0 launched last month begins tackling work on the winner of the "Big Items For 8.0" poll, among other items.

Lastly, we revealed a bit more info on our next full tittle. For those who didn't catch Chris's mention of it: Bionic Dues is "a turn-based tactical... kind of roguelike-ish... strategic... thing," currently scheduled for a beta in late August or early September and 1.0 in October. We'll have some more substantial updates on it as we progress closer to those dates -- including one I'm particularly excited about.
