    you may or may not of heard of it but indieroyale is a clone of humble bundle. it has A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda, Gemini Rue, Sanctum, and Nimbus. also for every 10,000 bundles sold they will include a new sanctum DLC for everyone(including those who already bought it)

    it is a pay what you wantish system. you have to pay a minimum based on how they sell things if the sell at minimum price they will increase the price but if the sell for more than minimum they will decrease in price.

    just thought id spread the word

    It's trustworthy?

    Edit - It's not even working. It either tells me I need to fill in the missing Country field, or it says "Page Not Found".

    Now here's something interesting. Indie Royale, a new website dedicated to selling indie games in bulk, is testing the waters with an interesting pricing tactic. You basically set your own price, much like the Humble Indie Bundle deals, but the price you choose to pay can raise or lower the minimum price of the product.
    The site launches with what they're calling their "Launch Bundle," which includes sci-fi noir adventure game Gemini Rue, first-person tower defense title Sanctum, 2.5D platformer Nimbus, and side-scroller-shooter A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda.
    Basically, the game pack starts at a low figure, and the more people buy, the higher that number goes. Naturally, buying early means you pay less, but here's the thing: you can influence the minimum price based on how much you choose to pay. The more folks purchase the pack, the higher the price goes, but paying more than the set minimum actually lowers it for others. So the more generous people are, the lower the price remains, and the site's leaderboard already shows certain folks paying nearly $50 for the four games.
    That's pretty much what you get for paying above the minimum: self-satisfaction and a spot on the leaderboard. At the time this article was written, the price was floating around $2.65 USD.

    Pretty cool concept, and the games look decent-to-good/interesting. I recommend hopping on this deal as soon as possible, because the longer you wait, the more you pay. They're having problems with Steam code distribution at the moment, but they assure us it will be fixed shortly. Also, for every 10,000 bundles sold, they're giving everyone with the bundle a free DLC for Sanctum. The bundle has been going for just under 8 hours as of this posting, and the sales already tally higher than 15,000 so we're likely to get several free Sanctum DLCs.

    They fixed their issues, and Steam and Desura keys are now available for distribution.

    OP, thanks for the share! I enjoy these kinds of bundles, it'll give me something to do some day.

    I think you can pay via paypal.

    Also that is a pretty awesome concept - pay more than the current price to drop the price for others... Seeing it's only 3,66 right now, you can easily pay a bit more..

    A.R.E.S and especially Nimbus look great. Well worth some moneys.

    Good news and bad news.

    Goods new is 20,000 reached! Says we'll get 2 Sanctum DLCs, which is great.

    Bad news is the next DLC will only be released if the sales reach 70,000. Damn their curveball. :rofl2:

    That kinda pissed me off. The home page clearly stated that we'd be getting 1 DLC for every 10,000 sales. We reach the second DLC, then suddenly they change it so we need 5x what they originally claimed was needed. Sounds like Coffee-Stain didn't have much faith in this, and now realizes they'd likely be giving away all of Sanctum's DLCs by the end of the bundle if they didn't change the free DLC policy. I'm appreciative of the cheap games, but changing the rules part-way into the game always seems like a dick move to me, especially when the bundle doesn't seem to have been executed or managed very well. Oh well. Free shit.
