Buy IndieRoyale bundles before the price goes up

Wednesday, 26th October 2011 22:46 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A new initiative from the team behind indie games retailer Desura offers bundles of well-received games at decreasingly thrifty prices as word of mouth increases.

The newly launched IndieRoyale collects a handful of indie games into a convenient bundle, and offers it for sale at an astonishingly low price.

As with many schemes of its kind, different bonuses may be unlocked as sales hit significant milestones, but most intriguingly, the bundle’s price goes up as it becomes more popular. That said, every user who pays more than the current minimum at time of purchase will knock the asking price down for future buyers.

The first offer, the Launch Bundle, features four titles: A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda, Gemini Rue, Sanctum and Nimbus. A piece of DLC for Sanctum will be unlocked for all buyers when the bundle reaches 10,000 sales. At time of writing, it’s priced at $2.82 with 1609 sales and four days on the clock.

Head on over to the site through the link above to watch the price seesaw back and forth thanks to generous patrons and happy opportunists.

Three more bundles have been announced, although their contents have not been revealed. Each bundle is offered for five days, and a new one is scheduled every two weeks. All games are made available for PC, through Desura, Steam, and direct download.

Thanks, RPS.

    They seem to be having some technical problems at the moment. Desura keys seem to be working fine, but the Steam ones certainly aren’t. I think I heard something about them giving out duplicate keys by accident.

    Teething troubles I guess.

    I don’t have any respect for the people putting it down for not having the charity element. I like the sliders on the Humble Bundle, but mostly because it allows me to give three quarters to the developers and one to the publishers.

    Personally I just like it when indies show everybody else how its done, all the way down to business models.
