Indie Royale - Similar to Humble Indie Bundle
« on: October 31, 2011, 01:56:24 AM »
I was just heading for bed when I noticed nobody has mentioned Indie Royale here on DC yet. Since there are only about 11 hours remaining I thought I should mention it real quick. It's similar to the Humble Indie Bundle.

I'll do a better job of explaining this later. But for now, if you're at all interested, click through to find out more.

Thanks!  It seems to work a little different than the Humble Bundle, with contributions driving down the price rather than driving the average up, and there being a minimum buy in.  But still a good deal, even if I already had ARES and Sanctum.

I bought it.

Have tried...

A.R.E.S - feels like a rather generic Turrican / Abuse clone. I felt the screen was a bit zoomed in meaning I couldn't see enough of the environment.

Nimbus - played the first dozen levels of this, and enjoying it greatly. At its heart it is a well crafted puzzle game, but the mechanics also require good reactions and quick thinking.

..but not looked at the other two yet.

Yes it is different from HIB. There is a minimum price to pay, and as more people buy the package, it brings the price up. But if someone is generous and pays more than the minimum, they can drive the price back down for everyone else.

There will be a new bundle every 2 weeks. And there's no charity involved. This appears to be strictly an experiment of a new business model (made by the folks responsible for Desura).
