Indie Royale Stuffing Bundle Packs Five Titles For Cheap

Enjoy a post-meal gaming session with any of the five titles featured in the bundle, The Dream Machine Puzzle Agent 2, Children of the Nile: Enhanced Edition and more.

Featured in this tasty bundle are the first 3 chapters in the point and click adventure from Cockroach, The Dream Machine, available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. Play as Victor and Alicia, who have just moved into a new apartment during a major transition in their life (they have a baby on the way) only to find that the quiet unassuming apartment may have more to it than meets the eye. Set in both reality and an unforgettable dream-world, one of the most distinctive features of the game is that all of the cast and sets are hand-made from clay and cardboard. This labor of love only adds to the other special gameplay elements in this point and click adventure: interesting dialogue, item collection, and puzzles, along with atmospheric music and a compelling story-line.

Also included is Layton-esque puzzle adventure sequel from Telltale Games, Puzzle Agent 2, available for Windows and Mac on Steam, Desura and DRM-free (you may remember that Puzzle Agent 1 was featured in our July Jubilee Bundle!). Play FBI puzzle agent Nelson Tethers as he tries to uncover what’s really going on with the mysterious disappearances in the tiny town of Scoggins, Minnesota, after the FBI has closed the case. Offering unique puzzle mechanics, Puzzle Agent 2 uncovers additional mysteries via new plot additions such as haunting visions of astronauts in the woods while wrapping up unresolved mysteries from Puzzle Agent 1. Features of the game include excellent voice acting, unique art from Graham Annable and puzzles abound. Don’t forget your chewing gum!

The next game in this bundle is city builder Children of the Nile: Enhanced Edition from Tilted Mill, available for Windows on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. It’s built on a different premise than most city builders in that the game is an accurate simulation of life in ancient Egypt and centers on the citizens instead of the buildings. Play as the Pharaoh and build up prestige over thousands of years by exploring and building monuments using surplus bread (currency) which you receive in the form of taxes. The more your citizens thrive, the more bread you’ll receive, which enables you to build out your empire and achieve immortality.

The next dish in this bundle is 11 Bit Studios’ unique post-apocalyptic game Anomaly: Warzone Earth, available for Windows, Mac and Linux on Steam, Desura and DRM-free. The title offers a unique twist on tower defense: rather than building towers to force units through a path, players create a path for units to destroy towers. While having no direct control over the convoy, gamers use power-ups, careful resource management, ability management and route planning to save the world from an extraterrestrial invasion. Play the commander of the 14th platoon of a futuristic British army whose sole purpose is to keep the earth safe from extraterrestrials by finding and destroying alien structures in Tokyo and Baghdad.

The last dish to save room for in the Stuffing Bundle is retro-inspired platform adventure from ScaryPotato, Adventure Apes and the Mayan Mystery, available for Windows on Desura and DRM-free. Play as Mitch as he quests through the jungle to stop Horatio Hawk from escaping the Mayan temple with a magical artifact. This game flawlessly executes on platform exploration, offering challenging bosses, fun graphics and hours of gameplay.

Those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Stuffing Bundle will get a chiptune album with soothing synthesizer melodies, jazz fusion and progressive rock sensibilities Tree of Knowledge from yogurtbox, a $10 value on its own. This unique album, available as part of an Indie Royale partnership with seminal chiptune label Ubiktune , was developed as an homage to distinctly retro Japanese PC-98 game soundtracks.

As with all Indie Royale releases, more buyers means a higher price, unless generous buyers pay more than the minimum cost and drop the price for everyone else. Don’t miss out! Find more information on the Stuffing Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, visit the official website and the Indie Royale Facebook and Twitter pages.

Don’t forget to tune into Streamlicious, a 100-hour indie game stream for charity on November 23. Viewers will be able to watch gameplay for all of the games included in this bundle and become eligible to win one of 10 donated Indie Royale Stuffing Bundle keys!
