The May Hurray Indie Royale Bundle

Featuring Dungeons Defenders, Containment: The Zombie Puzzler, Data Jammers: Fast Forward, Brainpipe - A Plunge to Unhumanity and Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space. I'll admit that I've never heard of sixty percent of those games, but we have continuously covered Dungeon Defenders and I am familiar with the fairly recent release of Containment: The Zombie Puzzler on Steam. Every month or so Indie Royale does a bundle and if you are unfamiliar with them they are not the same as many other Indie bundles. For Indie Royale you have to pay a minimum and none of the money goes to any kind of charity like the Humble Bundle, it instead goes all to the developers and website. They also usually have some kind of bonus for those who pay more than a specific amount and for this bundle that is $7. The current bundle price is at $5.07

So here are some quick overviews for each game. Dungeon Defenders is a multiplayer, co-op, based RPG that takes you through many various and gorgeous levels as you fight a large amount of fantasy based enemies. There are many classes and they all use a mix of tower defenses and abilities. Check out our review here. Containment: The Zombie Puzzler is well obviously a puzzle game about zombies. It is action based and does some interesting things with zombies, survivors and the puzzle genre. Take a look at this video of that in action. In Data Jammers: Fast Forward you are set on track that is continuously moving forward. It is a bit of action game in a retro-like environment, in which you travel along bit streams. Take a look at a short video of that here. Brainpipe - A Plunge to Unhumanity is an absolutely crazy game with a fitting name. It is a first person and you travel through a spiraling tunnel filled a hypnotic environment. Watch that in motion here. Lastly we have Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space. This is actually one of the most interesting game in the bundle since it is a science fiction adventure/strategy space again. It is a sequel to the game Strange Adventures and it is marketed as a game that can be completed in twenty minutes, but has the content to last much longer than that. Check out their website here. If you want to check everything out then head directly to the Indie Royale website to check out the May Hurray Bundle.  Thanks for checking it out.
