This Week In Indie: July Jubilee Bundle, Deals And Indie Freebies
Welcome to another glorious edition of This Week In Indie, and we’re getting straight to the point in this week’s edition. No more pansy-footing around and warbling on about the state of the industry, which is in dire need of your funding. That is all mere ‘poffy-cock’ and a haberdashery of nonsense. So what has this week in indie been about. Nothing much has happened, except perhaps an increase in bundle mania which is the norm nowadays in the indie scene.
I’m also twenty four now which is both a blessing and a curse. As usual, there are too many indie games to play, and the Summer Steam sale has raped the wad of cash that once sat in my pocket. More bundles, means more deals, which means more spending, which leads you into debt, crime and a life of danger and espionage. Oh wait, that didn’t come out right. Lets just talk about indie games.
First off the mark, is a new indie bundle and Indie Royale is back with the “July Jubilee Bundle” which consists of Puzzle Agent, Geneforge Saga, Oniken, Mutant Storm Reloaded, SWIFT☆STITCH and Unepic. The bundle costs, as of the publication of this article, around $5.50, but will gradually increase. If you pay $8 or more, you’ll receive a chiptune CD. Games can be downloaded for Steam and the awesome indie version of Steam ‘Desura’, which people should look into for great indie game purchases.
Deal-wise, there’s a great deal on the indie game Resonance which we reviewed and recommend to every indie fan out there. The game is having its price reduced by 10% on Steam and is on sale for $8.99 right through until the 1st of August.
In PSN and Playstation 3 news, Freeware indie studio Nifflas and production company Green Hill have just announced a partnership with Ripstone Publishing that will effectively bring the release of their latest game in the Kyntt series (pronounced Knight), called Knytt Underground, to PSN. The basic premise of the Knytt is that:
The Knytt was abducted by an alien! Traveling through space, the UFO flies into a meteor and crashes on a nearby planet. Luckily, the Knytt and the alien survive, but the UFO is a wreck. How can the Knytt possibly find its way back home again? Knytt is a free platform game for Windows featuring exploration, atmosphere, and infinite cuteness.
Knytt Underground will be a sequel to Knytt and Knytt Stories, which can be downloaded for free from here, and here. The game will also be coming to Windows, Mac and Linux. For more information, you can follow this link.
Now it’s time to announce the three winners of The Adventures Of Shuggy Steam codes, and they are: Dom van Blerk, Johan Rademeyer and Devon Ray Coetzee. Well done guys, I’ll send your Steam codes as soon as possible. I hope you enjoy the games.
Anyway, there’s no competition for the coming week as I’m sourcing more games for both reviews and the weekly competition. This is a necessary evil, and so don’t be sad. I’ll see you guys next week with some new indie games, indie giveaways and amazing announcements. I hope your weekend is stellar and filled with indie goodness. Remember to keep it ‘real’, and keep it indie.
