Indie Royale's First Bundle Hits 30,000 sales, Debuts New Bonuses

IndieGames.com and Desura, the two entities behind the just-debuted

Indie Royale game bundle series, are announcing a series of milestones

around the first-ever bundle, as follows:

- The bundle of four worthy independent PC games - Extend

Interactive's A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda, Wadjet Eye Games' Gemini

Rue, Coffee Stain Studios' Sanctum and Noumenon Games' Nimbus - has

now surpassed 30,000 total sales in over 3 days -- with just under 2

days to go.

- Minecraft creator Notch has heeded the call of his fans and donated

to 'Gold Star' level during the first couple of days of the bundle,

topping the 'most paid' high score table, and kindly dropping the

price $1 for everyone else along the way.

- The generosity of Gemini Rue publisher Wadjet Eye Games allowed keys

for the just-launched Steam version of the futuristic adventure game -

including Steam-exclusive achievements - to be added part way through

the bundle. All four titles in the Launch Bundle now have redeemable

Steam keys - as well as direct downloads and Desura keys where


- Thanks to Sanctum creator Coffee Stain Studios, organizers have made

the Violator and Killing Floor DLC packs available for the addictive

first-person tower defense title, after sales milestones were met.

Individual Steam codes for these are now available on the Indie Royale

bundle redeem page.

- Organizers are also planning to debut two further 'thank you' pieces

of add-on bundled content, to be rolled out to all Indie Royale buyers

before the end of the Launch Bundle. Watch the site's Twitter feed -

http://www.twitter.com/indieroyale - for more information on these

extras as they appear.

The Indie Royale bundle series runs on a unique model where price will

automatically increase as more people buy the bundle. Generous

purchasers, however, can help lower the price for everyone else by

choosing to pay more than the current minimum, earning a mention on

the front page of the site in the process. Organizers have confirmed

that there will be an Indie Royale bundle every two weeks.

The Launch Bundle for Indie Royale now has just over one and a half

days before it stops for ever, with plenty of price fluctuations and

extras likely before it ends. Check it out now at
