The IndieGames and Desura co-created bundle site Indie Royale, a sister website to Gamasutra, has announced semi-blind pre-orders for its latest April Fools Bundle, including five independent titles and a pre-order music album.
Headlining the bundle, which will debut later this week, is a title currently described as an acclaimed tower-defense game with a free built-in expansion (for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free). Featured alongside it is a retro turn-based dungeon crawler (for Windows and Mac in a Steam debut, Windows and Linux on Desura, and Windows/Mac/Linux DRM-free).
Also available in the April Fools bundle is a pair of titles from the same developer spanning platformer shooter and horizontal shmup (for Windows on Steam, Desura, and DRM-free), and rounding it off is an incendiary 2D action platformer (for Windows on Desura and DRM-free).
In addition, those who pre-order the April Fools Bundle receive an awesome vocoder-heavy bonus: Sexy Synthesizer’s Japanese ’80s-style chip album Rock: Deluxe Edition, available in .FLAC and HQ .MP3 file formats. Those who pay over the minimum while the bundle is live will also receive the bonus.
Indie Royale’s April Fools Bundle will launch officially later this week, when the full set of games available in the Bundle will be officially revealed. The bundle series runs on a multi-day model where the price will automatically increase as more people buy the bundle.
