Indie Royale, for those who are unfamiliar with it, is a website that offers a different bundle of indie games every couple of weeks for people to purchase together. This sounds pretty straightforward, but there’s a twist: the price of the bundle is more or less left up to the buyers. A minimum is set at the start of the sale, then rises as more people purchase the bundle; paying an amount over the minimum helps knock the price down overall for everyone. Think of it as a way of getting yourself some good gaming karma.
The current bundle out on the market is The Mash Bundle (named perhaps for the mishmash of genres found in this bundle; that, or whoever created the name had a potato craving). The games included within are:
Delve Deeper: A strategy RPG that has you delving deep into a mine.
Guns of Icarus Online: A first person shooter with a steampunk flavor.
Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior’s Rise: A beat-em-up based inspired by Chinese lore.
KRUNCH: An adventure game designed to test your reflexes.
Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People: A point-and-click adventure from the creators of Homestar Runner.
Not all games are compatible with all systems, but the majority of them are at least available for PC and/or via Steam. The Mash Bundle only has 6 days left before it makes way for the next bunch of games, so move quickly if you want to take advantage. The price was at $5.53 at the time this article was written; paying $8 or more will get you the album Parallel Processing by Danimal Cannon and Zef.
