Straight Outta Japan: Doujin Bundle! Brings a Slice of Quality Indie Games

groupees doujin 3

Let’s see… one, two, three. Yup, this is indeed the third time Groupees have ventured overseas with their bundling efforts, and in my opinion, they’ve yet to disappoint! Also, bundles full of Japanese indie games (and soundtracks) are undeniably too rare, so show this one some support, eh?

$1 tier

dUpLicity ~Beyond the Lies~

dUpLicity ~Beyond the Lies~ (Windows, Mac, Linux, Android – Desura, DRM-free) Greenlight [trailer]
Yukina Kudou looks like your normal high school student, but she has a huge secret. She was ordered by someone to be the girlfriend of Youji Kataoka. She doesn’t know why, nor what the true purpose behind it is. Everything begins from a mistake of the past and continues on as an eternal lie. In the end, What will she find beyond the lies?

QUALIA 3: Multi Agent

QUALIA 3: Multi Agent (Windows – Steam, DRM-free) [trailer]
In Qualia 3, you take form of an evolving creature – a “Multi Agent”, comprised of three base creature elements. To become stronger and to overcome your adversaries, you will need to adapt and gain access to new forms. The only way to do this is to kill other creatures, collect their energy, and obtain trophies that unlock new forms. If successful, you will gain dominion over the deep sea and become its apex predator! Should you fail, your fate will be sealed as just another forgettable part of the food chain.

Akane the Kunoichi

Akane the Kunoichi (Windows – Steam) [trailer]
You are Akane, a Kunoichi ninja secretely loving her master Goro, a noble samurai. One day Goro is kidnapped by the evil Hiromi and her minions – you have to rescue him, but it won’t be an easy task! Many enemies will try to stop you, and you’ll have to be brave to fight against the evil ninjas and huge monsters loyal to Hiromi.

$4 tier

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (Windows – Steam) [trailer]
The first hi-res 2D fighter from the creators of the Guilty Gear series! BlazBlue is a traditional 2D fighter where two characters participate in a duel. The story of the game involves dissent and destruction among a powerful council, known unofficially as “the Library,” which controls a great power that once saved humanity, but which now wields its power in protective, some say repressive, ways.

RefleX

RefleX (Windows – Steam, DRM-free) + soundtrack [trailer]
Many years have passed since the ALLTYNEX incident and humanity’s resettlement of the Earth. The world’s nations have joined to form a unified economy and a global militaristic government. However, in opposition to the worldwide mass oppression, a resistance organization arose: Valkyness. The decades long conflict between the Global Unified Army and Valkyness is suddenly interrupted when an alien force arrives seeking vengeance on humanity for atrocities inflicted upon their people.

Danmaku Unlimited 2

Danmaku Unlimited 2 (Windows – Steam, DRM-free) [trailer]
Danmaku Unlimited 2 is an indie labor of love to bring classic Japanese vertical shooting action to modern HD systems. Inspired by Japanese doujin shooters and being authentic to a fault, the game features epic stages filled with beautiful but deadly bullet patterns, nail-bitingly difficult boss fights and seriously rocking soundtracks!

Stagelight

Stagelight (Windows – Steam (note: only non-Steam version, for now)) [trailer]
Stagelight is the Easy Way to Create Music. Stagelight offers you a simple, fun and intuitive approach to music creation – regardless of skill level.
