Press release for immediate release

July 24 th, 2014 – Launched today, The Breakneck Bundle takes PC gamers on a white-knuckle ride through dystopian cities, claustrophobic labyrinths, and Steampunk wastelands!

Curated by Bundle Stars ( http://www.bundlestars.com ), a leading purveyor of digital games, The Breakneck Bundle is an adrenaline-charged collection of eight absolutely awesome indie games for Steam. The entry price? Just $3.49 (USD), slashing an incredible 94% off normal retail prices for a limited time only.

Vector plunges gamers into a dystopian future, where society is under complete control of Big Brother. Freedom is nothing more than a distant dream. But the player – as an exceptional free runner – starts to fight the totalitarian suppression!

Vector is a popular arcade-style platform game which has 50 million players worldwide. PC players can slide, jump and vault using extraordinary techniques based on the urban ninja sport of Parkour, while being chased by security agents, whose sole purpose is to capture and brainwash them. During the breath-taking escape players master over 100 lifelike stunts to overcome obstacles in more than 50 detailed levels. Awesome manoeuvres increase the player’s riches allowing them to buy new clothes, gadgets and Parkour tricks!

The giant future Megapolis and the character models are presented in full HD (1920x1080). Vector also has game controller support and two new game modes; Hunter Mode, which lets players switch to Big Brother’s side and hunt down opponents; and Level Creator, where gamers can build their own dystopian stage or even tweak the game’s rules!

Rush for Glory features challenging and rewarding tower defense battles, in which players are defending their base against an alien invasion. By strategically building towers and upgrading them, the player can keep his base safely and further progress through the extensive single player campaign. Rush for Glory includes offers over 30 types of enemy, terrifying level bosses as well as a wide variety of towers and upgrades.

Montas is a first person survival horror adventure that focuses heavily on exploration, immersion, atmosphere, story and interactivity. The player wakes up at the desk of Joseph Walker, an accountant working for a firm in the city of Montas. Normal life for Joseph has become a distant memory, haunted by nightmares of events that didn't happen, and cursed with unsettling hallucinations wherever he goes. Paranoia is growing, and the situation worsens when police begin to question locals about recent murders in the area. What is happening to Joseph?... and what is Montas hiding? Montas is a Steam Early Access game which includes full support for the Oculus Rift.

Steel & Steam takes the best elements from the fantasy JRPG’s of old and combines them with a touch of steampunk. The desert plague is spreading from the East: a reminder of a destructive past. Man has evolved since the wars of old, creating new ways to combat this deadly expanse. Some of the desperate seek out elemental guardians who sleep inside the planet and can be controlled to stop the desert. The legends speak of a chosen few who have the ability to tame these elemental beings and reshape the world.

Inspired by classics such as Breakout™ and Arkanoid™, Ionball 2: Ionstorm is a revolutionary update to the popular genre. Featuring stunningly beautiful 3D environments, crisp colourful graphics, incredible pixel explosions, and amazing special effects, the objective of the game is to survive and complete 60 levels of machine-blasting fun. With 3 unique boss levels, endless hordes of enemies, 7 uniquely destructive weapons, 6 life saving upgrades, a superbly designed experience points system and global leaderboards, even experienced players will be challenged to their limits!

Growing Pains gives the traditional platformer a shake up with psychedelic graphics, a thumping sound track and an ingenious twist that you’ve never seen before. The vessel which you control continually grows and expands leaving you in a permanent race to clear the area and escape before you get too big and find your butt wedged in a tight spot. Combine this with tight controls and levels crammed with devious traps and you’ve got a heart-pounding race guaranteed to leave you with sweaty palms and a sense of overwhelming satisfaction when you reach the goal.

Clockwork Tales: Of Glass and Ink is an intriguing adventure game in the steampunk genre. It’s a detective drama featuring action elements such as espionage, monster battles and even hang-gliding! A continuing string of strange earthquakes are causing the world’s cities to crumble to ruin. Dr. Ambrose Ink—one of the foremost minds of the technological revolution—hopes to expose the underlying cause of this supernatural phenomenon.

Sugar Cube: Bittersweet Factory is an innovative platform game with unique gameplay elements.  Flipping background tiles can make platforms appear or disappear, adding an addictive layer of puzzling to proceedings. With 90 levels, cute and colourful visuals and a catchy soundtrack, Sugar Cube breathes fresh air into the platform genre.

After redeeming their bundle keys on Steam (a free user account is required), gamers can download their games and start playing instantly. All the games in this bundle run on Windows. Clockwork Tales also runs on Mac and Linux.

The Breakneck Bundle containing 8 Steam games is available for a limited time for just $3.49, exclusively from http://www.bundlestars.com/all-bundles/reboot-bundle-5/.
