Indie Royale Returns For Charity

Posted on May 16, 2012 by Andrew Minott

Indie Royale returns with another low-priced bundle of indie games for your indie pleasure, this time benefiting charities chosen by the developers. The Indie Royale Lightning Round All-Charity Pack comes with an incredibly long name, and the following assortment of video games: physics bubbler Osmos, real-life cheatfest B.U.T.T.O.N., rabbinical RPG The Shivah, and Blueberry Garden, which they describe as a “short experimental game about curiosity and exploration.”

Currently, the base price for the bundle is in the low $4 range, and as usual the price will fluctuate based on whether or not customers pay more than the minimum amount or not. If you pay more than $7 (or the equivalent of such in your local currency), you will also receive three bonus music albums: Jake Kaufman’s FX4, Disasterpeace’s Level, and 6955’s IN1ep.

All of the proceeds from this sale will go to benefit Amnesty International, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, ActionAid, and UNICEF.

Should You Buy The May Hurray Bundle?

Posted on May 7, 2012 by Andrew Minott

Short answer: “yes.” Longer answer: “yes, why haven’t you done that yet?”

Previously reported here at BrokenJoysticks.net, Indie Royale’s May Hurray Bundle is available for the next three days. You should buy it. The price fluctuates as it sells by increasing slightly if someone pays that minimum price and decreasing slightly if someone pays more than the minimum, and as of this writing the minimum is $5.29. I’ll run you through the five games in the bundle, so you can know precisely why you ought to spend a value meal’s worth of income to make your life better.

May Hurray Bundle Giveaway

Posted on May 7, 2012 by Daniel Shannon

We were wondering about what to give away today. The Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation (today known as Sony) was founded on the seventh of May 7th 1946. Over 500 years prior to that auspicious occasion, Joan of Arc took an arrow to the shoulder. Instead of whining about it, Joan continued adventuring. In fact, she patched herself up and got back into the fight that very evening. Her forces would lift the siege of Orléans the following morning. We considered giving out games somewhat related to those events.

However, Broken Joysticks won’t allow the distant past to dictate our actions in the present. Instead of giving out Sony games or Medieval strategy games, we’ll be giving away copies of Indie Royale’s May Hurray bundle! If you’d like a copy of one of these bundles, please post in our comments section. Tell us which of the games included in the bundle interests you the most and why. Winners will be chosen later today and announced in the comments section for this post.
