The Indie Royale game bundle site offers a great catch of indie games in the Gone Fishin' Bundle, featuring seven independent games, including three games exclusively debuting on this bundle for PC!

The first bait on the hook is Seamless Entertainment's Unreal Engine-powered 3D space-action game: SOL: Exodus now available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. Save humanity from the dying sun by finding a new home, and blast your way through multiple missions while enjoying easy-to-grasp Wing Commander-esque controls and core gameplay alongside an involved story. Destructoid calls SOL: Exodus an "accessible, exciting spacefighter sim" and suggests that "(a)nyone looking for a good space dogfight should feel obliged to give it a try."

If that isn't enough to reel you in, Doublesix Games' undead-heavy topdown shooter All Zombies Must Die! will surely tempt you to bite. 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. For those who played All Zombies Must Die! on the PSN or XBLA, you'll be pleased to note that the PC release offers relief to zombie swarming by adding a new 'treacle' mechanic, "which will allow players to wade through otherwise impassible zombie crowds."

Also offered in this tempting bundle are two games from 3 Sprockets, led by Cubemen, an acclaimed tower defense title now available for Windows and Mac on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. Play out the epic battle between red and blue by placing pixel men on the board to defend your base across 35 levels. The Skirmish mode offers what Gamezebo calls "a refreshing twist on tower defense" where players get to play against the AI or in multiplayer mode across 25 additional levels. Also from 3 Sprockets is bonus game VectorGeddon 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.

Suitably included in this 'fishy' bundle is Squids from The Game Bakers, available for Windows and Mac on Desura and 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 that threatens to destroy civilization by building a team of heroes to fight epic turn-based battles against corrupted crabs and shrimps. Touch Arcade calls the iOS versions of Squids "kinetic, clean, charming, and particularly streamlined" and says the game "has a ton of character, fun, and unique constructs to share."

Last on the fishing lure are two PC debuts from Magiko Gaming: Platformance: Castle Pain and Platformance: Temple Death, both devious side-scrolling 'masocore' platformers available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. 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. Indie Gamer Chick notes that the series is "pretty to look at, sound wonderful, and (...) offers a legitimate challenge without going out of their way to be unfair."

Finally, those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent 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.

More information on Gone Fishin' Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, is available at its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages. And a final reminder - the people who buy, the more the price will go up, unless kind buyers drop the price, so take the bait and grab a bundle today!

Unlike everyone else the game ran just fine for me on win 7. The windowed mode didnt bother me since it matched th width of my screen perfectly while leaving a little at the top and bottom open, no big deal.
It was however not really my type of game. Very "I wanna be the guy". so if that sounds like your thing, then go ahead.

Anybody have problems trying to unistall this game. When I try to do it the window pops up but doesn't have the button to confirm the unistall.

So it turns out that the developers are completely unreachable for support. I have tried the following:

Message on Desura (fails because there are no users in the company 'Magiko Gaming')
Email to the address given on their Desura page (email gets bounced back)
Twitter (no response)
Email to magikogaming@hotmail.com (no response)

Was this game programmed by ghosts? Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I hate it when games have these "ClickOnce" application setups, or whatever they are called. I want to control where and how my games install, not have files scattered everywhere as soon as I click something. Please, either just provide the game files in a zip file, or provide a proper installer.

great game, both this and Castle Pain. But I managed to trap myself, assuming there is no alternative way to turn off the sunbeam . I managed to turn on the sunbeam then die spawning back at the checkpoint on the rope bridge. This during the second half holding grace belly. --> goo.gl/GBZqT

So everyone knows, this is not a problem with the developers game, but a problem with Desura servers.
For the ones that can't download anyway. For those that downloaded and have crashes, I'm not sure if this plays a part or not.
More info at Indiedb.com
They are currently working on this problem.

I second plysek, how do you make the game full screen? My screen is high enough resolution to play the game full screen, but not tall enough to accommodate the taskbar and window surround so I can't see the whole window.

So the game isn't properly playable to me until I figure out how to make it full screen. I don't believe the dev could have just missed it out...

Ok, so both of my attempts to contact the developer have failed. A PM on Desura didn't work because the developer group has no users in it. An email to the given address gave me a lovely mailer daemon response.

It is pretty ridiculous for a game that's 720p to be limited to windowed mode... If the game was smaller or the window was resizeable it'd be ok. Magical Timebean's PC ports are the best I've seen. Not one, but two full screen modes and customisable controls.
