The Indie Royale website has launched its fifth iteration, the New Year Bundle, initially featuring four Windows and Mac supported games.
RadianGames debuts XBLIG and iOS hit Super Crossfire
for PC and Mac exclusively on Indie Royale. While clearing out huge waves of enemies, players warp with ease between the bottom and top of the screen at any time with simple, intuitive controls. Combined with a massive upgrade system, intense gameplay, visuals, and audio, Super Crossfire
is the next evolution in the arcade shooter genre and is available on Desura and as a DRM-free download.
InterWave Studios' Nuclear Dawn
, available on Steam, offers a full FPS and RTS hybrid experience, without crippling or diluting either side of the game. Players can storm a building as an assault trooper, cling to the shadows with active stealth, or unleash incredible firepower from a high-tech suit of exo-armor, or lead as a commander, marshalling resources and deploying weapons and equipment for your troops.
From Cipher Prime, the acclaimed team that brought PSN, PC, and Mac users Auditorium
and iPad users Pulse: Volume One
, comes Fractal
, an enthralling music puzzler experience. Players can push, combo, and chain their way through a pulsing technicolor dreamscape all the while expanding their consciousness at 130 beats per minute. Fractal
is available on Steam, on Desura, and as a DRM-free download.
Finally, Press Play's award winning Max and the Magic Marker
is a physics based 2D platform game that has been a hit on iOS, WiiWare, Nintendo DS, and the PlayStation Network. While Max enables good old platforming fun, the marker provides the game's signature feature: the ability for the player to draw directly inside the game world where everything drawn becomes physical objects.
Press Play's title comes in two forms. The standard edition is available on Steam, on Desura and as a DRM-free download. The HD version, released for the first time on PC and Mac, includes updated graphics and a completely different level structure and is available on Desura and as a DRM-free download.
As before, the Indie Royale bundle series runs on a five-day model where price will automatically increase as more people buy the bundle. Generous purchasers, however, who choose to pay more than the current minimum will earn as a bonus George & Jonathan's raved-about electronic chiptune funk album Beautiful Lifestyle
. (This bonus was also available to those who pre-ordered.)
Indie Royale was co-created by Gamasutra sister site IndieGames.com and independent game download service Desura, and more information on the 'New Year Bundle', including real-time statistics and its current price, is available at its official website
