Show of hands, who’s in the mood for another Indie Royale outing? Since it has some fun games, budget gamers could do much worse than to increase their backlog by picking this one up!
Interesting lineup for sure. Plenty of cross-platform stuff, single player excitement and multiplayer mayhem. Some in space, some in a fantasy realm – there’s even a game in which you rule over… everything! Price of admission? $4.50 at the time of writing, but you can pay more and lower the minimum for everyone else. Lineup includes seven games and if you pay at least $7, n00bstar’s operat0r album gets added to your basket. Oh and as always, there’s a yet-to-be-revealed mystery game.
Gravi (Windows, Mac, Linux – Desura, Steam) [Early Access]
Gravi is an intense puzzle-platformer that will test your tolerance for pain. Shoot and swing your way towards victory as Gravi, an adorable blue ball of energy. While you’re launching through terrorizing traps and bending gravity to your will, Anti-Gravi, an atomic ball of rage, is barreling down on your position.
Skyward Collapse (Windows, Mac – Steam)
How do you balance — and indeed encourage — a war between factions without letting either side obliterate the other? How do you rule over gods, creatures, and men who refuse to obey you? How do you build a landscape of villages when bandits and mythology are conspiring to tear it down? Skyward Collapse places you into the role of The Creator, and frees you to tackle these problems your own way.
3089 (Windows, Mac, Linux – Desura) [ALPHA] – impressions of an earlier build
3089 is a futuristic, procedurally generated, open-world action role-playing game. All terrain, enemies, weapons, items, quests & more are uniquely generated. You are a promising robotic android design, made by the Overlord, placed on planet Xax. Your performance in common combat, support & intel scenarios is being closely watched. However, will you become too much for them to handle? What else on planet Xax exists that the Overlord doesn’t know about?
Survive (Windows – Desura)
Survive is a first person zombie survival shooter set in a procedurally generated open world. The idea of the game is what would you do in the zombie apocalypse. You are put in a random house in a huge completely procedurally generated world. You have to explore the procedural world to find the food, water, and guns you will need to survive the zombie horde.
Freedom Fall (Windows, Mac – Desura)
Freedom Fall is a diabolical down-scrolling platformer set in a prison tower so tall it touches the clouds. Presented with hand painted art, its old school vibe mixes with fast-paced free falling action and a story with both dark wit and heart. With the promise of freedom for those who escape, find your way through the traps and mechanical monstrosities set up by a twisted princess who you’ll wish was in another castle. As your bid for freedom continues you start to see that things aren’t quite as they seem.
Starpoint Gemini (Windows – Desura, Steam)
Starpoint Gemini is an RPG tactical simulator focused on the control and strengths of individual vessels. In SPG ship captains and their skills make the greatest difference in large-scale battles. The games is set in a science-fiction universe where various thriving technological directions exist side by side. After spending almost twenty years trapped in the so-called Stasis rift anomaly, unaware of the passage of time, player reemerges into normal space to find Gemini and indeed everything he knew, had changed beyond recognition.
Starvoid (Windows – Desura, Steam)
Take control of a mercenary commander in the outer rim of the galaxy as you vie for control of a precious star fuel known as Starvoid. Using an arsenal of combat robots, vehicles and special abilities, it is up to you to defeat rival mercenaries. Deployable machine gun turrets, minefields, repair nanoids and orbital rocket strikes are only a sampling of the tools at your disposal. If your commander is eliminated, fast respawns refill your assets and ensure you’re kept in the battle. Easy Job, they said… ain’t no such thing out here.
Don’t forget that Indie Royale’s The Sigma Bundle will only be available for little less than thirteen days, so don’t wait too long; unless you enjoy paying full price for indie games, that is. Nothing wrong with that, but since a bundle has been made available and all – might as well, right?
