Really Big Bundle now available from Indie Royale

Indie game bundles seem to be the latest craze and I fully approve of the concept. The latest bundle to become available for the masses comes from Indie Royale, a site that was created by both IndieGames.com and the download service Desura. The appropriately titled Really Big Bundle features five indie games including Really Big Sky, Runespell Overture, Eufloria, Cthulhu Saves The World, and Breath Of Death VII.
 
Pricing for the Really Big Bundle is based on a five day system where the cost generally raises higher with more purchases. However, a buyer can decide to pay more and everyone else will be rewarded with lower prices. Also, anyone who purchases the bundle is recommended to check back towards the end of the sale for bonuses from the various developers.
 
The Really Big Bundle is available now at Indie Royale.


INDIE ROYALE DEBUTS THIRD ‘REALLY BIG’ BUNDLE
 
SAN FRANCISCO – November 29, 2011 - Following the success of its first two independent game compilation bundles, with almost 70,000 bundles and over 350,000 games sold in less than a month, the creators of the Indie Royale website (www.indieroyale.com) have revealed its third bundle, unveiling a line-up of five top PC indie games.
 
The 'Really Big Bundle' - which launches with nearly 10,000 'blind' pre-orders from fans of the first two bundles - is led by the title that gave the bundle its name - Boss Baddie's crazed space shooter Really Big Sky, packing a whopping 12 game modes into its beefy, feature-filled frame.
 
Also now revealed as part of this bundle is Dutch developer Mystic Box's underappreciated Runespell Overture (also available on Mac for bundle buyers), an RPG twinning collectible cards with poker-based combat in extremely playable and innovative fashion.
 
Additionally part of the bundle is the the PC version of Independent Games Festival finalist Eufloria (formerly known as Dyson), an acclaimed 'ambient space exploration' title that's been a staple of independent game showcases over the past couple of years. And finally, Zeboyd Games' cult indie RPG duo Cthulhu Saves The World and Breath Of Death VII - twinning Lovecraft-ian spoof with Japanese RPG pastiche of the finest sort - complete the five titles in the 'Really Big Bundle'.
 
The Indie Royale bundle series runs on a unique 5-day model where price will automatically increase as more people buy the bundle. Generous purchasers, however, can help lower the price for everyone else by choosing to pay more than the current minimum, earning a mention on the front page of the site in the process.
 
For this bundle, both already purchased blind pre-orders and those who drop the price during the bundle will also receive a bonus 'thank you' in the form of Fezcomposer Disasterpeace's chip tune concept music album 'Rise Of The Obsidian Interstellar'. In addition, all Bundle buyers should check back towards the end of the bundle for further bonuses from the creators of the games included in this pack.
 
Indie Royale was co-created by independent game editorial site IndieGames.com and game download service Desura, and more information on the 'Really Big Bundle', including real-time statistics and its current price, is available at www.indieroyale.com, or additionally via www.facebook.com/IndieRoyale  and  www.twitter.com/indieroyale.
