Indie Royale begins pre-orders for 'The New Year's Bundle'
Indie Royale begins pre-orders for 'The New Year's Bundle'
January 2, 2012 | By John Polson

Indie game fans can now blind pre-order Gamasutra sister site Indie Royale's New Year's Bundle - which includes PC and Mac versions of all games - at a recommended //$5 to //$10 USD contribution, and a minimum of $3.99 USD.

The titles to be offered will include a premium blend of FPS and RTS (Steam for PC and Mac), an innovative single-player puzzle game (Steam for PC and Mac, Desura for PC, DRM-free PC and Mac download), an award-winning 2D platformer (Steam for PC and Mac, plus an enhanced version for Desura PC, DRM-free PC and Mac download) and a world premiere on PC/Mac for an acclaimed arcade shooter with a twist (Desura for PC, DRM-free PC and Mac download).

Those who optionally pre-order now will get game access as soon as the bundle launches, lock in their price, and receive as a bonus George & Jonathan's raved-about electronic chiptune funk album 'Beautiful Lifestyle' (this bonus is also available to those who pay more than the minimum price during the bundle.)

The New Year's Bundle will launch fully later this week at $2.99 USD and up - watch Indie Royale's Twitter feed or Facebook page for immediate notice at launch time.

[Indie Royale is co-created by Gamasutra sister site and Australian download site Desura.]

So first we're buying Minecraft and Voxatron before they're even finished, then we're paying people on Kickstarter because they have a good *idea* for a game, and now we're being asked to pay for games without even knowing what they are? i'm pretty sure this is how thought policing begins.

(Did somebody say "McDonalds"?)

i received a mysterious note cobbled together with clipped newspaper letters claiming someone would murder my family if i didn't contribute to at least 3 Kickstarter projects this year, so i find your comment extremely insensitive in what has become a very stressful time for me.

I have liked the indie royale bundles - because they have had a convenient size and price. Yes, paying less than recommended can happen, but being a total cheapskate doesn't appeal and I refrain because others probably have more time and less money than I do. However, I don't know how the quality will hold up with the frequent releases of any of these bundles. I am not preordering, because I rarely preorder.
