Indie Royale returns in a flash with the Ninja Lightning Pack, an eclectic, Windows PC-compatible collection from longtime indie developers NinjaBee. Five full games from the veteran developers are available, starting at a total of just USD $2.99 and trending upwards or downwards until the frantic 100-hour countdown ends.


First up, NinjaBee brings side-scrolling, puzzle-platforming console hit Cloning Clyde, co-developed by Bacon Wrapped Games, to Windows PC users. Players use mutant Clydes (including Chicken-Clyde, Frog-Clyde, and Sheep-Clyde) to help the real Clyde escape the 40 levels of the evil Dupliclone, Inc. IGN considered the XBLA version of Cloning Clyde "one of the most extensive and enjoyable games available," and the Windows version packs an equal punch.

Players can also enjoy building and managing on land with the signature NinjaBee citybuilding title A Kingdom for Keflings. Playing as a giant, players progress by unlocking new blueprints, buildings and tasks on their way to constructing a Kefling kingdom, and the game includes the ability to build cities online cooperatively with your friends, as well as extensive customization to buildings, villages, and tasks for in-game citizens.

In the humorous space station sim game Outpost Kaloki, players must "solve challenges, entertain visiting aliens, keep your ratings high, defend your station against alien attackers, and rake in the money on your way to fame, love, and glory". With dozens of scenarios to play through and a number of "sandbox" environments to extend the experience, Outpost Kaloki has since expanded to Xbox 360 and iOS, but Lightning Pack purchasers get the Windows title that started it all.

Also available is Cloning Clyde's spiritual sequel, platform puzzler Ancients of Ooga. NinjaBee and Bacon Wrapped Games' 2011 title substitutes clones for fallen tribal chiefs with ancient, elemental powers necessary to clear over 50 levels, all full of new puzzles and platforms. Ooga also boasts a unique eat/carry/puke inventory management system. Eurogamer claims that the game has a "twisted humour and mutated style lending a pleasantly Oddworld vibe to proceedings," adding to the game's overall charm.

Finally, the SRPG genre gets a relatively rare Windows outing with Band Of Bugs, a fast playing, accessible tactics strategy game. The game, also an early hit on Xbox 360's Live Arcade service, features a full story-based campaign, online play, and a level editor that lets you design custom scenarios and share them with your friends, as well as allowing compatibility with bonus campaigns and map packs available for free online.

All five titles are available as DRM-free or Desura Windows PC downloads, with Steam keys included for the two games available on that service, Cloning Clyde and Ancients of Ooga. The Ninja Lightning Pack will run for just 100 hours, under the same pricing model as before: the price will automatically increase as more people buy the pack. Those generous purchasers who pay more than the current minimum can keep the price low or even decrease it.

I found the low resolution annoying and dug around and found by changing the file named gameInstanceSetup.ini in notepad to something like this:

[Resolution]
resolutionX=1920
resolutionY=1080

;fullscreen=1
fullscreen=1

;end of file.

the game runs in fullscreen and at a higher res thatn the default 1280x720 or whatever it was set on normally.

That's because you're trying to run it through Wine. Either use a Windows computer or wait for a Linux release.

Well there are People that run Crysis in Wine perfectly.

As for Myself, If I were to do linux gaming, I would install Windows in XEN and use VGA Passthrough. Not because I like linux better (but I do) but so I can save power.

When I'm not gaming high end games that need windows and my 4870, I can just unplug the power to my deticated card and use intergrated graphics for light gaming or no gaming at all. Because Windows goes nuts whenever I try to go back to intergrated.

But eventally, I will not only have to use wine, I'll have to use QEMU too. (like the Mac people use rosetta) One day, x86 wil be dead (arm will take over the desktop) and I don't wanna buy all my games again for Arm. By then, my 5-year-old games will work fine in wine and QEMU. (I know a guy that plays Quake 3 PPC on his mac pro, so this should be no problem)

I'm with you. There is usually an indication that there is a release for Linux. I say just wait it out as opposed to trying to put a round peg in a square hole.

It's also for any other linux users who were thinking of trying the same thing, not simply for the developers.
