After crafting some of the best games in the Xbox Live Indie Games program and branching out to both iPhone and PC/Mac development, RadianGames is ready to take the PC indie gaming scene by storm with the launch of not one but four brand new titles. Did I mention RadianGames is just one guy?
Luke Schneider is a glutton for punishment, as evidenced by his latest endeavour. He's following up on the success of Super Crossfire on iOS, PC and Mac, with a bundle of four new titles: Inferno+, Ballistic, Fireball and Slydris. It's a colourful little collection of titles, ranging from RadianGames' signature twin-stick shooter type games to a falling block puzzle that's just as odd as it is familiar.
Mac or PC gamers that preorder the game prior to release will receive all four games (completely DRM free) for a mere $US9.99, two dollars off the regular price of $US11.99, along with a bonus copy of Luke's Fun With Swarms tech demo.
Fans can also opt to pay a little bit extra. For $US12.99 they'll get the Super RadianGames Collection, featuring all four games plus Super Crossfire. Or they can shell out a bit more for the I Love RadianGames Collection, which adds beta access to Inferno+ and high-quality MP3 soundtracks of all four games.
That's a pretty sweet deal. No what makes it even sweeter? A percentage of every sale goes to Child's Play and St Jude's Children's Research Hospital. What percentage? Well that depends on how many he sells. It could be as little as five per cent for under 1000 copies, or as much as 25 per cent if the number tops 10,000.
So spread the word! Four great games bundled with support for the care of sick children is a pretty spectacular deal.
And hey, Luke? Maybe get some sleep once this is done?
