If you like indie bundles, then you’re in luck because I have an one that’s so huge and full of awesome indie games, you’ll simply have no choice but to buy it. This is the largest indie bundle ever, with a whopping 24 games included. This bundle is different from the rest because it offers a fairly unique purchase style; Instead of simply paying for every game in the bundle, you have some options.
Also, in the spirit of this bundle, you get 2 writers instead of 1. How freaking cool is that!?
Don’t worry though, if you’re one of those avid bundle buyers such as myself, have no fear. There are rumored plans in the works to add a fourth purchase option, one where you pay for all of the games in the bundle. That option is not available just yet, but it is supposedly coming soon, so if you’d rather just wait and pay for them all at once, you can probably do that.
Want to learn more about the games within the bundle? Read on for a blurb about each game!
Dark Scavenger: This is a Sci-fi RPG much akin to old school RPGs like Ultima. The game is driven heavily by the loot you find, the characters you have and the gear they create (thus the “scavenger” in the title). Normally, this game is $4.99 on GamersGate.
Survivor of Ragnaroks: What do you get when you cross Terraria, a RTS and demon chickens? You get Survivors of Ragnarok, a lovable 2D side-scrolling RTS game. SoR would normally be available for $9.99
Star Prospector: Call it a RTS, call it a Tower Defense game(it’s actually both!), just please don’t compare it to StarCraft. You can expect to spend lots of time perfecting your own niche of outer space with Star Prospector, normally $9.99!
Shepherd Slaughter: What is this? I don’t even… This roguelike game that has your splitting duties attending to your flock and being an adventurer.
