Micron is a game with a unique blend of puzzle and rhythm gameplay. Place pieces on the board to deflect bullets of energy that fire to the beat. Guide the bullets to the exit through 51 challenging levels featuring a variety of distinctive soundscapes. Your solutions create the music.

Micron began as a game created for Kongregate's 'Project Eden: Experience the Music' game contest, in which it won 2nd place. The judges included Tetsuya Mizuguchi, creator of REZ and LUMINES, and representatives from Ubisoft, Gamespot, and Kongregate.

"Classic visual like the Famicon but experiencing the process of sound effects evolving into the music felt really good. The harder the game, the more exciting the music gets--this was blended perfectly." - Tetsuya Mizuguchi

Indie Royale presents the out-of-this-world Lunar Bundle. Featuring the recently released Pid & Cargo Commander, Telltale's Back to the Future: The Game and last month's newly released Dungeon Hearts. There are 3, so far unannounced, bonus games. This week's tantalising bundle from Indie Royale includes over $60 worth of games.

Available for PC and Mac. Steam & Desura.
The recently released Pid is a beautiful and creative adventure. It's about a young boy named Kurt who finds himself stranded on a peculiar planet, from where he must find his way home. Finding help from unlikely allies and the curious tools in his backpack, Kurt must use gravity-defying beams to conquer every platform and solve every puzzle on this strange journey. Featuring over 12 hours of action-adventure gameplay and fully-realized co-op, players are poised to experience a beautiful world set to an evocative soundtrack. With twenty-two different locations, dozens of foes and hundreds of secrets, Pid is like your world... only different. Gamespot said "Pid presents a wonderland of sights and sounds". Check it out in The Lunar Bundle.

Cargo Commander
Available for PC and Mac. Steam only. 1 Bonus Track.
Alone in space, light years away from your family, armed with only your FistcannonTM, Platform Drill and the meanest cup of coffee in the sector; you are Cargo Corps' latest recruit, a Cargo Commander. Your responsibilities are simple: travel through the vast reaches of wormhole-filled space salvaging priceless cargo from alien infested... in keeping with our Lunar theme, this is a great space platformer.

Back to the Future: The Game
Available for PC and Mac. Steam, Desura & DRM-Free. Mac is Steam only.
The Future is Back and this time it's playable. Marty McFly and Doc Brown return in a new Back to the Future adventure set six months after the events of the third film. In this exciting new cinematic adventure game - from the award-winning Telltale Games, creator of The Walking Dead - the DeLorean Time Machine mysteriously returns to Hill Valley, without a driver in the seat. Marty must go back in time and employ the help of a resistant teenage Emmett Brown in this unique chapter in the film series.

Dungeon Hearts
Available for PC, Mac and Linux. Steam only.
Bright, vibrant but with a fiendish soul, Dungeon Hearts is a Puzzle/RPG hybrid that fuses the strategy and pattern matching of puzzle games with the breakneck pace of action games. Described by Destructoid as "clever, inspired and enjoyable", you must align magical runes to attack, defend, and conjure magic in frenetic battles against a bestiary of fantastical creatures. A unique and exciting fresh take on the match-3 genre from Cube Roots / Devolver Digital.

The Sea Will Claim Everything
Available for Windows. Desura & DRM-Free.
The Sea Will Claim Everything is a whimsical, sharp, somewhat inscrutable adventure game on Steam Greenlight now. Creator Jonas Kyratzes describes the game as "literary, political, personal, silly, serious, and somewhat obsessed with details." But it also enjoys a childlike quality as you delve through a portal to the Fortunate Isles, where the sinister Lord Urizen is using the debt crisis to impose his will on the people. Unusual, quirky but also utterly unforgettable.

International Snooker
Available for Windows & Mac and Linux. Desura & DRM-Free.
The latest entry to Big Head Games' well-loved snooker series, International Snooker offers players the chance to shine on the green cloth in what many consider to be the most realistic yet approachable take on the sport. Featuring a Career Mode in which you play a full year's calendar of events earning world-ranking points in a bid to become world number one, International Snooker boasts cross-platform compatibility between PC, Mac, iOS and Android players not to mention 8ball and 9ball pool modes.

Available for PC, Mac and Linux. Desura & DRM-Free.

I finished all stages except for 49.. Am I really expected to hit all 4 switches at the same moment??

Btw, stage 51 mirror sounds sound kind of off-tune, ruined the otherwise nice climatic final stage for me :/

I've solved all levels except 49 - every couple of weeks I give it another try, but I'm still not able to hit all four switches at the same time. Driving me nuts...

You have to meet four balls inside one portal. Let them exit in the axis of the four switches. Good Luck mate.
Kudos to the developers for such a great game.

I realized that all four balls have to enter one portal and exit out the other at the same time but just couldn't figure out how to do that. Thanks to your comment, I went back and tried a few more times and finally got it. Great puzzle game!

I have a little problem. When I played in this game I had this error: "GetThreadContext Failed" two times . I worry about this because I have played two short times.

Are you using Kaspersky antivirus by any chance? Apparently it can cause this error in games that were made with Unity (such as Micron).

No, I'm using Avast antivirus. Last time I didn't have this error but I played once after problems with game.

Unfortunately, this is a core issue with the Unity engine and it is known to happen with various antivirus programs. Unity says they'll have a fix in an upcoming update (no date given but I'm guessing it's a few weeks away, at least). The best thing I can do is release a new version of Micron when the Unity update becomes available. Not sure how useful this is to you but there's more info here:

Thinking about it, this game reminds me a lot of Laser Light, and old DOS game I used to play.

That's pretty cool. I've never played Laser Light though. :)

I'm uploading an update now to fix those bonus levels (hopefully).

@Raytreau But I've received a few requests for a soundtrack now so I might have to start thinking about putting one together.

@Raytreau Sorry about those levels. :) Glad you're enjoying the music but I don't have a soundtrack currently, just short clips of audio.
