Five for Five Offers More Fun-per-Dollar than Anything Else You May Have Been Considering

RALEIGH, North Carolina - June 22, 2011

Independent developer Lunar Workshop, in conjunction with indie teams around the globe, today announced the Five for Five bundle, a collection of five independent games offered for five US dollars. Beginning today, players can download five engaging and unique titles for less than it would cost to watch some jerk fly around with a magic green ring for two hours.

"I'm always looking for new ways to please our fans, so I wanted to bring these fun indie games to a broader audience,” said Jorge Rodriguez, Lunar Workshop CEO and organizer of the sale,“For the cost of a quick lunch or a movie rental, you're getting countless hours of entertainment. I challenge you to find a more fun way to spend your next five dollars."

With games that range from casual to hardcore, Five for Five offers something for everyone while showcasing the talents of the global independent developer community. The Five for Five bundle includes:

    <*> Delve Deeper enmeshes players into action-strategy dungeon excitement. The game pits a player and up to three rivals against monsters as they build an ever-changing dungeon map and compete to pilfer loot as quickly as possible. Developed by Lunar Giant Studios. <*> Digitanks is an artillery strategy game in which players build an army of tanks and fight for control of digital resources. The game features two unique gameplay modes for extended replay value: fast-paced Artillery mode and grognard-worthy Strategy mode. Developed by Lunar Workshop. <*> Mactabilis is a high-definition shooter with RPG elements. Featuring two-player co-op and deathmatch modes, players can customize their own ships and select from an array of weapons (or create their own) as they fulfill the ultimate gamer’s dream: Blowing up everything, ever! Developed by Blazing Bit Games. <*> Spring Up Harmony combines the familiar gameplay of Pachinko and Breakout in an action puzzler that will appeal casual gamers and hardcore high-score fanatics alike. An entirely new addiction that won’t ruin your teeth. Developed by Frozax Games. <*> Steel Storm: Burning Retribution is a top-down action shooter with score-oriented competitive gameplay, hordes of smart enemies, destructible worlds and ground-shaking explosions for up to 16 players online. Did you get all that, or should we mention that you can make, share, and play customized missions? Developed by Kot-in-Action.
