Humble Daily #9: Aerial Maneuversby Jarred Walton on May 21, 2014 11:58 PM EST
Rolling on to day number nine in the two weeks of daily bundles, today there are three more games available for your donation, all with a focus on aerial combat. If you’re looking for a great value on a bunch of games, this is another bundle that’s going to disappoint, but purchased separately right now off of Steam the total cost for all three games would be around $26, so you’re still able to get three games at less than half price. You can also give everything to charity, which is always a nice draw. As with other recent offerings, there’s one core game for the bundle, a second unlocks if you beat the average, while the third requires at least a $10 donation. Here’s the short list of the three games:
- Race the Sun (79%, 08/2013): pilot your solar powered craft through a maze-like minimalist landscape and try not to crash or get caught in the shadows, competing against others on the daily leader boards; donate $1 or more
- Guns of Icarus Online (64%, 11/2012): a Kickstarter project involving online PvP gameplay with steampunk airships; pay more than the current average ($3.41) to unlock
- Strike Vector (73%, 01/2014): a multiplayer third-person aerial shooter, sort of like Unreal Tournament in the skies; $10 or higher donation required to unlock
Graphically, the games aren’t state-of-the-art, but they’re all 3D and the two unlockable games will push your hardware at least a little bit. That may or may not be a good thing – one of the aspects I like most with a lot of indie games is that most run great even with laptop iGPUs, so if you’re on the road and didn’t pack along a gaming notebook, you can still do more than play Facebook games and the like. If you're looking for lighter gaming options, Indie Royale has also posted their latest Mixer #4 Bundle that has eight games currently (with a ninth to be named later), for a current minimum price of $4.70.
