Indie Royale Gets Serious
The Indie Royale Valentine's Bundle offers Serious Sam 3: BFE and five other games for less than the cost of a decent sandwich.
Serious Sam 3: BFE is a pretty sweet shooter by any measure, but for less than six bucks with all the other stuff you get in the Indie Royale Valentine's Bundle, it's a seriously good deal. (Okay, I'll stop saying "serious" now.) There's Shad'O, a tower defense game set in the mind of a nine-year-old boy, the old-school platform adventure Oozi: Earth Adventure, the intriguingly-entitled Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time, and Lunnye Devitsy and Wake, two games that collectively make up The Lunar Pack.
I won't say "that's not all" because we've done this before and you know it isn't. The bundle also includes soundtracks for Shad'O, Oozi: Earth Adventure, Doc Clock, Lunnye Devitsy and Wake, and paying a minimum of $8 will add the Slipstream Vol. 2 album by CoLD StoRAGE.
So what we've got here is a chance to score one of the most wildly over-the-top FPSes to come along in years and indulge in some indie goodness that you might otherwise never have heard of at the same time, all for well under a tenner. If you're a shooter fan who hasn't yet sampled the seriousness, you're probably not going to get it much cheaper than this. The Indie Royale Valentine's Bundle runs until February 20 at indieroyale.com.
That bundle is super lackluster. Literally every other game besides Serious Sam 3 is a waste of time in my opinion.
Thanks for the heads-up Andy, I needed to finish the Serious Sam trilogy anyway, I usually drop at least a tenner regardless for those struggling to live their dream. Shame that Indie Royale doesn't do charity, but I can't really complain.
Mostly platformers, huh? I wasn't going to get it but I might put up with buying Serious Sam if I get a decent platformer or two out of it.
