Wadjet Eye Games yesterday announced that the wonderful Gemini Rue has come to Steam. Indeed, it has already gone live as of yesterday. This is excellent news for people who like great games, but also only like purchasing their computer games through the ever dominant Steam platform. It’s there, it’s 15% off ($8.49), and it could be one of your more memorable adventures this year. So, non-owners, your excuses are running out.
Also, if you stroll on over to their twitter feed this morning you might snag a free activation code. You know what must be done.[UPDATE:] Wadjet Eye has just brought to my attention something called Indie Royale; they’ve just officially launched their project yesterday. Indie Royale is, in summation, another newcomer to the fast-growing world of indie game bundle-distributing, obviously taking cues from the huge success that has been the Humble Indie Bundle. They’ve got a rather neat idea, here’s how it works: the bundle– this first launch bundle including 4 games (A.R.E.S., Gemini Rue, Sanctum and Nimbus)– begins with a low minimum, opening price. As folks purchase the bundle at or around the minimum price, it slowly goes up one cent at a time. However, when someone makes a much larger contribution it will drive the price back down a notch.
Who couldn’t love this idea? And really, have you ever regretted a purchase that supported small, independent developers? As I write this the bundle sits at $5.67 (down from $5.70 – generosity is abound!). Ah the choices!
