Dredmor's levels are bigger than a journalist's ego. It's nuts.

Just throwing that out there.

I use steam as my main client, and just install any non-steam game to my 'games' folder and then add it to my steam client with the 'add non-steam game' option.

the only time i've run into problems doing this is when a game requires a batch file (rather than a .exe) to launch, but that's only been once or twice, and only with alphas/betas.


Yeah, but I don't generally keep them installed unless I'm playing them/getting ready to play them. I'm just looking at it from a convenience standpoint of not having to manage too many different sources for my uninstalled/yet-too-be-installed games. I've got games on Origin that are not available on Steam and just a handful of Amazon non-DRM games... everything else I've bought from other retailers have been simply Steam keys. I'm no fanatic... just reluctant to over-complicate my life.

I've hardly played any, the only one that I've really spent time on was Dungeons of Dredmor and that felt a little too "deep" for me. HSL seems simple enough for a roguelike-noob like me.

I've so far unlocked two new characters (they're unlocked by dying lots or competing quests (which I haven't done yet)) and both seem to be a bit easier to play with. Eg. The "Amazon" class starts with no armour but instead has a bow that occasionally leeches life or levels up with your archery skill.

Is there a demo? I don't want to oversell it, but it's just scratching my particular itch. Typical Marmite game :lol:


You should give Desktop Dungeons a try. The alpha/beta version is still free, if I remember correctly, and that's the one I played. They've released or are about to release a super-pretty version, completely updated... but the free version works as a solid start.

I recommend this because it's a deep rougelike without the depth. Each dungeon is only one level, and it's all about trying to figure out how to beat each of these levels with the tons of different character classes. End result, is each 'game' is pretty short, and the starting classes/dungeons are pretty easy, so by the time you're trying to beat a hard level with a meek character class you have a good sense of how everything works.

Even though it's completely different in structure from any rougelike i've ever played, i think it might well be the best introduction to them, since you'll never, ever have to suffer through the experience of having a character you spent 20 hours on die a quick, sudden, stupid death.

I haven't tried Desktop Dungeons but after reading this I think I might.

Thanks for the heads-up! :D

Yeah, Hack, Slash, Loot is a pass. Played it for about 45 minutes, died a zillion times. Not that I really enjoy roguelikes. But I try. I try.

Which reminds me of the Seinfeld episode, The Busboy.

JERRY: Who said you have to like it?

Bought just for Hack Slash Loot, with Defense Grid as a bonus..

But the thing I enjoyed most from this bundle is..
..The music album.

Seriously great album there.

Bought. Only tried Explodemon so far and am pleasantly surprised. Tortured myself by looking at previous bundles and am now kicking myself for not seeing them when they were on. Really would have liked the first, Zeno Clash, and Serious Sam ones. Oh well.

So apparently Indie Royale is doing away with Pre-ordereing. I took this from the indie bundle topic on SPUF. The poster apparently got it from IR's facebook page.

"No more guessing! Indie Royale is doing away with pre-orders. Check regularly at http://www.indieroyale.com/ to make sure you’re there when a new bundle of games drops. Remember: the earlier you buy, the cheaper your bundle will be. The free bonus album will be available to those who pay more than $5. Also don’t forget to sign up for the Indie Royale newsletter http://www.indieroyale.com/#newsletter so you’re the first one to know when a bundle launches."



If I had to guess, I'd say that this is because of complaints from people who pre-ordered and then learned that the bundle contained a game that they already owned. I personally only pre-ordered once (this last one, because I knew what was in it), but I'll be sorry to see it go. The more people who pre-ordered, the less competition there was to get the bundle as it went live.

I've just read that update on their FB wall. I don't really know how I feel about it to be honest.

I like that they insist on $5 minimum for the music album though as that's my standard buying price :D

Well all I can say is they better be ready for the server hit when those bundles go live if there were no pre-orders. The thing I like about pre-ordering is to not ever have to worry about any of that nonsense. Now we are back to that again.

Anyway, there were always leaks about the bundles so it was pretty much the worst kept secret. There wasn't much guessing at all if you snooped around a bit.

Wow, I actually pre-ordered at least two bundles from these guys and was never disappointed. I guess the difference between 3.99 and 4.70 or so isn't crazy but it will be a hassle worrying about trying to get in early on the bundles.

I have a handful of leftover July Madness Bundles - PM if interested

Yeah.. I hate it when I can't get the lowest price possible for these bundles so I started preordering when they changed the minimum preorder price to the launch prices for the bundles. Since then, I haven't been disappointed, but I'll probably be paying a bit more now that they won't be taking preorders.

Does anyone know if Survivors of Ragnarök has been in any bundles?
Why is it that I feel like I've heard about this game before?

For anyone who's drowning in their bundles....here's a pretty sweet wiki. Now which game was that bundle in again?

Since I usually end up buying these for the music and then take whatever the games are revealed to be as a bonus, I'm annoyed by the new $5 threshold to get the music as well as the games. I guess it doesn't matter to anyone who doesn't care for the music, but to me, this is another base price increase: First $3, then $4, now $5.

On the plus side, I'd figure that the people wanting to pay the extra dollar for the music, as well as those kicking in the extra fraction of a dollar to get there when the price gets close to $5 anyway, there's a good chance of the minimum price hovering in the mid $4.50 range rather than shooting up a full dollar or more in the hours following the launch.

This is basically how I feel. Although the prices have rarely exceeded $5 over the long haul (maybe for an occasional spurt of a few hours). That said, I've still yet to buy one to date... here's hoping the Spring Bundle actually has stuff I want.

It's not the price that annoys me, it's the fact that the last time they did not do preorders, their site crashed for a good portion of that day. I don't want that to happen again.

Does anyone know what King Arthur's Gold and Project Zomboid started selling at?

King Arthur is currently 9.99$ and Zomboid is 7.99$. Were they lower?
I remember I got on the minecraft train late and I was kinda torqued.
Has Unepic ever been on sale?

I guess in general is there a price tracker for Desura and/or indie games?

I'll take my question somewhere else. These games aren't indieroyale, its just that I'm interested in them.
I don't want to confuse things.

It's a service similar to Steam but with an indie/mod focus. The people who run it do this bundle which is why all games are always on Desura.

this is a great bundle! The three games from radiangames (not big on slydris) make it worth it on it's own!! Was looking to pick up depths of peril anyway, $4 for those 3 games, plus the other are just a bonus IMHO.
