Yay, Greenlight! Another themed bundle from Groupees, this one with seven games all looking to burst through the mighty gates and get onto Valve’s digital platform. What say we take a look at the lineup?
Not a lot has changed since Build A Doujin 2 and Build A Casual before that, so here we go: $0.75 for the first game, price increases with each additional title you so heartily desire. All six extras – once unlocked – are included no matter how many games you pick up, or how much you’re willing to spend (the listed amount is simply the minimum). First one is the Zigfrak soundtrack, and as always, time will tell what the rest are! Recommendations? Bree+ and Inverto for sure; don’t forget to vote!
Deo (Windows – Desura, DRM-free) Greenlight
This is the adventure of the little angel Deo, who has the mission to find the evil demon Lukas, who has stolen his magical crown. To succeed he must pass through five locked gates located across five worlds. The last gate leads to the Lukas’ Den, where Deo has to come face to face with Lukas to get his crown back.
Angvik (Windows – Desura, DRM-free) Greenlight
Angvik is a platform action game set in a joyful but unforgiving land. The castle has been taken over by a barbarian and no one else has the courage to confront him, so take up your father’s gear and set off on a wondrous journey! And you’re not alone: you’ll find many birds and items to aid you along the way, and you’ll encounter all sorts of creatures to fight as well. But watch your step! You have only one life, so if you die, you stay dead.
Inverto (Windows, Mac, Linux – Desura, DRM-free) Greenlight
Proceed all of the testing areas with your trusty gravity gun (some resarchers gently call it ‘Gravitron’). Prepare to explore Escher-esque spaces and solve navigational puzzles by changing gravity direction, employing body momentum and fighting nausea (only if you have weak vestibular system), pushing boxes and carrying a lot of different keys.
Man in a Maze (Windows – Desura, DRM-free) Greenlight
Man in a Maze asks a simple question – would you risk your life for a set of steak knives? Of course you would! Join our daring contestant as he uses his wits, tools and timing to overcome a progressively more complex and deadly set of puzzling mazes to win awesome prizes. Just watch out for the electrified drones, machine gun turrets and laser barriers.
Mr. Bree+ (Windows – Desura [soon], DRM-free) Greenlight
The game tells the story of a householding family pig that was captured by the wild boars and sent to work as a captive. Until the day he ran away. During his escape, Mr. Bree had a trauma and forgot about his family, the way home, and also his movement skills. So it’s up to the player recovering his movements, remembering the way home, and finding out what happened to his family. During his journey, Mr. Bree will face some mindblowing revelations.
Frozen Hearth (Windows – activation key) Greenlight
Set in our own unique, Dark-Fantasy world-setting, you can play alone, or co-operatively with a friend, through an epic and brutal campaign. Taking on the role of a powerful Avatar of the heroic, individualistic Danaan; you will try to save them from certain extinction at the hands of an immense horde of ravenous ice monsters – known as the Shangur –driven ever forward by an unstoppable wave of moving ice and snow that consumes everything it shrouds.
Zigfrak (Windows, Mac, Linux – Desura, DRM-free) Greenlight
Zigfrak is a space-based action RPG, featuring missions, exploration, and crafting. With an emphasis on loot and over-the-top items, it’s not a traditional space sim. Enemy ships explode like loot piñatas, spewing forth useful pickups. The game employs subtle humor to poke light at a dark situation – a human civil war on a galactic scale, complicated by the invasion of technologically superior aliens. During the campaign, players encounter clues and artifacts which could reveal ancient secrets of humanity.
Don’t forget that Groupees’ Build A Greenlight 4 will only be available for little less than eleven 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?
