After the success of the Humble Indie Bundle V, independent game connoisseurs have another bundle to look forward to. Indie game bundle website IndieRoyale.com has launched the Gone Fishin' Bundle. The collection features seven independent games. This includes three games exclusively debuting on this bundle for the PC platform.
The main attraction of the bundle is Seamless Entertainment's Unreal Engine-powered 3D space-action game: SOL: Exodus. It's available for Windows on Steam as well as Desura and is DRM-free. The game puts you in a quest to save humanity from the dying sun by finding a new home. The game harks back to the old-school space sims and lets you blast through multiple missions while enjoying easy-to-grasp Wing Commander-esque controls and core gameplay alongside an involved story.
The bundle includes 7 independent games for cheap
Zombie fans will prefer Doublesix Games' topdown shooter All Zombies Must Die! Available for Windows on Steam, this game offers a smattering of role-playing and strategy features, an unexpected cartoon-like art style and witty dialogue filled with clever pop-culture references. Those who have played the game on the PSN or XBLA will be pleased to note that the PC release offers relief by adding a new 'treacle' mechanic, which will allow players to wade through otherwise impassable zombie crowds.
Also offered in the bundle is Cubemen , an acclaimed tower defence title now available DRM-free for Windows and Mac on Steam as well as Desura. Play out the epic battle between red and blue by placing pixel men on the board to defend your base across 35 levels. VectorGeddon is another title in the line-up that's available for Windows and Mac as a DRM-free standalone exclusively on Indie Royale. It's a fast-paced Missile Command style game where players spawn missile silos around the planet and target incoming asteroids to destroy them in order to keep the population of Earth from hitting zero.
The bundle also carries Squids from The Game Bakers, which is available for Windows and Mac on Desura and is DRM-free. Offering a clever mix of action strategy and RPG, this game is based on saving the world of the squids from an evil black ooze by building a team of heroes to fight turn-based battles against corrupted crabs and shrimps.
Finally, the collection includes two PC debuts from Magiko Gaming — Platformance: Castle Pain and Platformance: Temple Death, both devious side-scrolling masocore platformers available for Windows on Desura in a DRM-free form. Originally developed for Xbox Live Indie Games, these games are tough as nails but satisfying to beat. Platformance: Castle Pain stars a heavily armored knight who must overcome various challenging platform goodness to save the princess. Also debuting is Platformance: Temple Death, which is based on saving famous starlet Grace Belly by navigating though traps and challenges as an adventurer with a hat and whip.
Those who pay $8 (approximatey Rs 450) during the Gone Fishin' Bundle will get Pocustone the debut album from Floex (aka Tomas Dvorak), the Czech musician who created the lauded Machinarium soundtrack. This critically acclaimed album bridges relatively isolated genres such as nu-jazz, electronic and modern contemporary music, and appears in a bundle for the first time here.
