Wake is the story of an engineer trapped on a sinking ship. His goal is to navigate through the ship and find his way to the surface above.
Valentine's Day is famous for wilting flowers and packed restaurants. Why not stay in and have some indie gaming fun instead? We can sort that! There are hours of very unromantic alien blasting, striking tower defense action & heaps of classic platforming to be found in the Valentine's Bundle 2.0 from Indie Royale. Together the 6 titles featured in this bundle are valued at over $65! At Indie Royale the starting price is just $3.99.
Leading this Indie Gaming love-in is the latest installment in Croteam's phenomenally popular series: Serious Sam 3: BFE.
Serious Sam 3: BFE is a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs and pulling the trigger made things go boom. It's available for Windows, Mac or Linux on Steam. It was developed by Croteam, is offered thanks to Devolver Digital and was released in November 2011. The game serves as a prequel to the original indie sensation, Serious Sam: The First Encounter. 1UP said of Serious Sam 3: BFE that it's "a game that deserves to be played, because it shows what shooters were and could have been. It shows that there's more to the genre than what AAA developers have shown us in the past decade". For the hopelessly romantic among you, Serious Sam 3: BFE includes a great co-op mode!
Next is Shad'O from Okugi Studio. A unique tower defense game that will immerse you in the story of William, a 9-year-old boy lost in his own mind, fighting to save his memory. He will get help from his luminous companions in his struggle to remember what happened to him. Available for Windows from Steam, Desura & DRM-free. Shad'O is a beautiful game about light and dark. IGN said "it distinguishes itself through its striking art design and compelling narrative". Shad'O was only released in September 2012. We've got the Collector's Edition which includes the game and the soundtrack.
Another recently released game in the Valentine's Bundle 2.0 is the pure 2d platformer Oozi: Earth Adventure, available for Windows on Desura & DRM-free with the OST. It was developed by Awesome Game Studio. The game has a lovely hand drawn art style tied to some hardcore, old school platforming. Gaming Nexus reviewed the game with the comment that it's an "adventure that really conjures up memories of classic platformers from the 8-bit and 16-bit days". Oozi: Earth Adventure is in Steam Greenlight right now so don't forget to upvote it if you like this game.
The next game in this bundle is Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time from Stickmen Studios, available for Windows from Steam, Desura & DRM-free with a Mac version too. This game is the first Doc Clock time travelling adventure in which you can invent almost anything out of everything you find, from catapults to incredible flying machines. The game features sarcasm, misguided robots and a cat! There are wallpapers for the game included in the Valentine's Bundle 2.0.
Last up we have 2 games from Boss Baddie: Lunnye Devitsy and Wake. Together they make up the Lunar Pack. Lunnye Devitsy is a mystery puzzle platformer about a little alien who falls off the moon and has to make his way back. In Wake, an engineer is trapped on a sinking ship and he has to navigate his way to the surface above. Both games are available for Windows on Desura & DRM-free and we've got the OST. Both games in the Lunar Pack are new 2013 versions launched in this bundle.
Finally, those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Valentine's Bundle 2.0 will get an ambient electronic treat from Tim Wright of CoLD SToRAGE, the recently released 'SLIPSTREAM [volume 2]'. As with SLIPSTREAM Vol. 1 from the last Indie Royale bundle, this album features 64 bit digital re-mix / re-masters of Tim's tracks from WipEout and WipEout 2097. It also includes some special remixes and exclusive bonus tracks that weren't on WipEout. These tracks were created around the same time, so they share a similar flavour. This album is available in MP3 and FLAC format.

So will Desura/Indie Royale owners be getting Steam keys, like most devs opt to do?
This was discussed in the steam thread. Originally, the developer was not going to release steam keys, but then backpeddled and said that keys were coming...
"We're not giving out Steam keys, the Desura games are DRM-free however so they're not tied to any platform."
"Good point! Backpeddle begin! I've started the ball rolling on getting Steam keys out to IR bundle owners."
However, if you own the IndieGale IV, you will not get it...

Well, I see your point. I respect your decission.
On the other hand, Going Loud Studios, the maker of DLC Quest, will release Steam keys for the buyers of the Saint Patrick's Day bundle (a year old). And the game has had a major update.
We did something similar for people who bought Big Sky, all their copies were upgraded to Really Big Sky for free. Prior to DLC Quest on Steam they also sold that extra content on XBLIG.
They really need to fix the configurator.
It said press shift to jump, it's actually a. It said press space for sprint you actually press f. Good luck gesing what illogical buten lets you climb because i did it ones by mashing keys but gave up after that.
Patch has been submitted :)
Working on a fix for that at the moment, if you enter your keys and press save it will work fine in the game. Or if you don't use the keyboard config at all the default keys are listed in the manual (W for map, A to jump, S for item, D to run).
COOL could i get a copy of the game to try it out for me it looks AWESOME!!! the trailer is very cool so i would like to try before i actually purchase it?THanks anyway :)
There's no demo that I'm aware of, but you can get an older version of the game for $1 on indievania if you want. Indievania.com
