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!

Great game and I hope to be able to finish it. At the moment it keeps crashing once I beat the gaurdian. Hope it's just a setting I have somewhere.

I remember this :) Great to see it on Desura, loved your soundtrack from gamemusicbundle! I'll probably try and get this later, though.
