Need a new game but don’t want to leave the comfort of home? These download specials might sort you out
Xbox LIVE, Steam, GOG.com, Indie Royale all have some appealing specials this week, along with some smaller digital outlets that could just be packing what you need.
Indie Royale Evolved Bundle
Indie Royale is back with another healthy dose of indie game titles. The Evolved Bundle features an award winning, puzzle adventure game Unmechanical; atmospheric horror game The Path; squad based dungeon game, Krater, including the character DLC; the full game of the IGF China 2010′s winner, Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory; and an intricate scrolling puzzler, OIO: The Game.
Drop US$8 or more on the bundle and you will get an ambient electronic album from Tim Wright of CoLD SToRAGE, called ‘SLIPSTREAM [volume 1]‘. The album features 64 bit digital re-mix / re-masters of Wright’s tracks from WipEout and WipEout 2097.
