Crayon Chronicles
Crayon Chronicles offers a relatively short but action-packed RPG experience that randomly generates the level layouts each time you play.

The Bundle Album $8 Bonus
The bundle bonus album is from Stephen Pearlman (Haberdashery) who has been crafting synth-pop since 2004.

Hi Aythreuk, what is the main reason for not liking it so much? Any input is welcome so that we can try and improve.

I can't speak for Aythreuk, but for starters why is the (extremely restrictive) DRM for Tropical Heat not disclosed anywhere?

And on that same note, why would you include a game with DRM in the first place? There must be hundreds of game developers out there who have games they would love to be part of an Indie Royale bundle, who don't treat their customers like criminals.

I don't know if it's changed since you saw it, but currently the bundle page says: "Tropical Heat Jet Ski Racing for: windows (with limited use CD key), mac, desura". So it's sortof disclosed now, although the specifics aren't.

Scratch that - It has changed. It also does include the specifics in the details: "DRM PROTECTION ALLOWS 3 ACTIVATIONS PER PURCHASE". So it's disclosed *now*, but that doesn't help anyone who purchased already.

I was pretty upset about that DRM, too. I am actually happy with the bundle in general, though, as it doesn't include any of those hateful Steam-only games and the selection is good. These are games I had seen on Desura and considered purchasing. Seeing them in this bundle made my day. I hope you will contain to release bundles like this, but without games containing the nasty DRM that ThreeSon mentioned.
