Indie Underdogs in final push, team up with Rogue Records of America
The six teams of developers that make up the crowd-funding bundle, the Indie Underdog Pack, are hoping for new interest and support with a new offer and a new bonus reward. For the contribution of one dollar , you will receive all six DRM-Free games, including the award winning titles Caveman Craig, Magi, Koya Rift, Infernal Edge and more! Plus, as an added bonus, all contributors will receive High-Quality Mp3 tracks from the newly signed (by Rogue Records of America), Those City Lights.
All games and music are available for download immediately after contributing, via 8-bit Funding or as a direct contribution for non-paypal users (from our website). Prefer Steam? Don't forget that you can simply add our games to your Steam library with the click of a button! Support of $25 or more earns you pre-order access to the games in development (as downloads, Desura or Steam codes). This includes the highly-popular Caveman Craig 2 (currently on Desura, potentially on Steam soon).
Here are the bundle games: For full details and trailers, please visit: http://IupBundle.org
The updated special edition of the acclaimed and award winning game, Caveman Craig, by Parabox Games. This real-time strategy game brings you back to the time of dino-frenzy caveman action. Build your tribe, take down t-rex and dine on the delicious meat or squish berries with your feet!
If addicting strategy is what you crave, then Magi, by MoaCube has the wizard dueling action that is right for you. Select your mage, enhance your stats and blast your opponents with a huge variety of magic spells!
For the more casual player, Potion Master by EpicVessel Games is an alchemy themed match-3 with a twist. Discover the Elixir of Life as you blast through potions with spells, orbs and scrolls. Play this game for a minute or play for a few hours.
Koya Rift, by SunnyKatt, is a fun way to waste a few hours. Destroy the dangerous spirits as you conquer an alien planet. With procedurally generated levels, weapons and difficulty level, its like a Rogue-like with guns...lots and lots of different guns!
If you have the urge to strap animals to jet-packs and send them flying through the air (usually resulting in a hilarious explosion of fire and seared meat), Animal Blast by Virtanen Games is a hilarious winner. A note of caution, its a tough game that challenges you early.
As if six games weren't enough already, the Best of Lazy Brain is a compilation of ten games, all in NES fashion. Infernal Edge, Mecha Spider Island, Sky Scream and more. Each one is a play-it, beat-it, forget-it, but the games are each unique and a ton of fun. Perfect for those of us who have a list of games yet to be played.
About the Iup Bundle: So what, this is just like another cheap bundle?
We are being seen this way, which is really cool, don't get me wrong we love seeing our games listed along the likes of the Humble Bundle or Indie Royal, but we aren't that. We are six teams who want you to see what we are working on; we want you to invest in us. None of us are big industry names, but each of us have been doing this for years. Our combined experience is something like 150 years developing commercial quality games, but that's not an accomplishment in itself, it just means we love doing this and want to keep doing it. We don't need your help to quit our jobs (that's probably not going to happen) but we do need your help to stay relevant and give our games the boost they need to reach a high level of quality. It only takes a dollar to keep our dream alive (you get some cool games too)!
