Indie Royale Alpha Collection Includes Three Early Stage Games

The Indie Royale game bundle site (www.indieroyale.com) has debuted its first-ever Alpha Collection, with buyers being able to play and help fund to completion three in-development titles, including the vaunted Dwarf Fortress-esque PC, Mac and Linux title Towns.indie royale alpha collection

This now-available bundle was handpicked to include three games with immediately fun, playable “alpha” versions and current or imminent PC, Mac and Linux versions. Each of the developers has committed to providing updates regularly to all Indie Royale buyers until the title is complete.

Leading off the Alpha Bundle is SMPís Towns, a city building and management game mixed with an RPG that draws inspiration from titles spanning Dungeon Keeper, Dwarf Fortress and Majesty. Instead of playing the hero who delves deep into the dungeon, players oversee the town that houses and caters the heroís needs. Players can craft unique weapons, obtain randomized loot and build a settlement capable of holding back the forces that rise up from the active dungeon upon which the town sits. Towns is available on PC, Mac, and Linux.

The second title being Alpha funded is developer Phr00tís 3079 -- an alleged lovechild of Minecraft and Fallout, with a block-like world, futuristic action, and role-playing elements played in a first-person perspective. 3079ís randomly generated areas, buildings, items, quests and characters make it an entertaining open-world experience, with Alpha funding helping to power many new additions over the next few months. PC, Mac, and Linux funders can dive into the single player and online multiplayer action now.

Finally, the Alpha Collectionís sleeper title, Wyv and Keep: The Temple of the Lost Idol, is a lusciously pixelated 2D co-op puzzle platformer from A Jolly Corpse. Dubbed as a more fiendish version of Blizzardís classic The Lost Vikings, players can control Wyv and Keep with one keyboard and two players can play locally or online.

Players use boxes and even their own bodies to traverse gaps, activate switches, collect treasures, and reach exits in dozens of levels. A Windows PC build is currently downloadable, and purchasersí contributions will help fund the Mac and Linux versions of the game. These are planned to become available for all Alpha Collection buyers in the next 3 to 6 months

The Alpha Collection launches with a recommended €/£/$10 for the titles, which are downloadable as standalone executables and also redeemable via Desura, but also with a fluctuating minimum that starts at $5 USD and moves up from there. Generous purchasers will bring the minimum bundle price lower over the seven days of the bundle.
