2:47 pm pst
Physics-Based Puzzle Platformer Game and Winner at GDC 2010's Independent Games Festival Comes to Xbox Live®Arcade
KONAMI ANNOUNCES PUDDLE NOW AVAILABLE FOR XBOX LIVE® ARCADE
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. –
January 27, 2012 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that Puddle, a winner in the 2010 GDC
Independent Games Festival Student Showcase Division, is now available for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video
game and entertainment system from Microsoft. A brilliantly designed physics-based puzzle platform game, Puddle initially
began as a project from six students from the French videogame school ENJMIN, and was ultimately picked up and developed by
In Puddle, players must guide a puddle of fluid to its target destination, not by moving the
fluid, but by tilting the game world. A new experience based on physics and liquid properties, players must work with friction,
momentum, and the unique properties of each type of fluid and environment to send as much of each puddle past fires, rifts,
spills and more. The challenge lies in the fact that the fluid motion is realistic. If players tilt too quickly, droplets
are left behind and if tilted too slowly, they may not be able to make certain jumps. Players also have to control their fluid
and safely navigate through pipes, plants, laboratories, a human body, a sewer, a rocket, a foundry and a power station. The
end goal- avoid being evaporated away. With endless twists, turns and surprises, Puddle tests puzzle fans like never
before in an unparalleled physics-based puzzle platformer title.
Puddle is rated T for Teen by the ESRB
and is now available for download on Xbox® LIVE Arcade for 800 Microsoft Points. Puddle will also be available for
PlayStation® Network on January 31 for $9.99. For assets and more information please visit www.konami.com/download and www.konami.com/puddle.

01/24/2012 - Indie Royale Serious Sam Lightning Pack Released
3:19 pm pst
The Indie Royale game bundle website is launching a new series of 'lightning packs'
- more focused, 'niche' collections of PC games with a shorter time-limit to buy.
Indie Royale's Serious Sam Lightning Pack Launched
The first surprise pack,
the Serious Sam Lightning Pack, is available to buy immediately, with a starting price of $2.99 and a total of six Serious
Sam-themed games, including four new indie-developed games riffing on Croteam's gonzo FPS franchise, plus the two original
games in the series.
Serious Sam's recent indie spinoffs were commissioned by rogue micropublisher
Devolver Digital and franchise creator Croteam (still an independent developer themselves!) around the launch of Serious Sam 3: BFE, but gained some notoriety thanks to their entertaining spinoffs of the
Of the previously available titles in the bundle, Serious Sam: The Random Encounter -
available on PC as a DRM-free download, on Steam, and on Desura - is a refreshing take on the RPG genre, developed by acclaimed
indie developer Vlambeer (Super Crate Box, Ridiculous Fishing). Its gameplay is a clever pixelated hybrid of turn-based
battles with real-time, run and gun offense and defense maneuvering.
Also part of the pack, Serious
Sam Double D - available on PC as a DRM-free download, on Steam, and on Desura - is a hand drawn, side-scrolling
shooter featuring over-the-top gameplay and chaotic action from arcade-loving indie Mommy's Best Games (Weapon Of Choice,
Next, making an exclusive debut on PC in this Lightning Pack is a DRM-free download and
Desura PC version of Serious Sam: Kamikaze Attack. Developer Be-Rad Entertainment's offering (originally available
exclusively on smartphones) is an Canabalt-style action-platformer where players control the Headless Kamikaze
enemy, striving to accomplish the bad guy's dream of blowing up the vile Serious Sam on every level.
a world exclusive Indie Royale debut, Serious Sam: The Greek Encounter is an 8-bit, top-down "demake"
of Serious Sam, specially commissioned by Team Fortress Arcade and Halo/DJ Hero demake
author Eric Ruth. It's available for PC as a DRM-free download and on Desura, and sees Serious Sam in ancient Greece battling
the relentless hordes of Mental's army in an all-new retro 8-bit adventure.
And as a special bonus, Croteam, the
indie team who originated the Serious Sam franchise, offers the original Serious Sam: The First
Encounter and Serious Sam: The Second Encounter games for PC, redeemable on Steam. These two
original titles are packed with the arcade-action style first-person shooting that the Serious Sam series is known for, including
gonzo single- and multi-player modes.
This new Lightning Pack will run for just 100 hours, under the same pricing
model as before: the price will automatically increase as more people buy the pack. Those generous buyers who pay more than
the current minimum can decrease the price for other purchasers.
Indie Royale was co-created by Gamasutra sister
site IndieGames.com and independent game download service Desura. More information on the Serious Sam Indie Series Lightning
Pack, including real-time statistics and its current price, is available at its official website or via its Facebook and Twitter pages.
