Bundle Stars’ Fully Loaded bundle offers you Wrack, The Detail, Z, Silence of the Sleep, and plenty more.
The latest Bundle Stars offering contains a whopping 10 games – nine of which I haven’t actually played – for the grand total of €5.21. Let’s go through them in order, shall we?
Wrack is a gorgeous first-person shooter based around combos and kill-chains, and has generally had a pretty good reception. Dark is a stealth-action game about vampires, which is reportedly excrement, although Peter (Parrish) tells me that its protagonist is voiced by the same chap who does The Witcher‘s Geralt. Blazerush is an “arcade racing survival game”, which I think means it’s a top-down combat racer, and it apparently works rather well with the Oculus Rift DK2. Onikira: Demon Killer is an Early Access 2.5D beat-’em-up set in feudal Japan. Super Toy Cars appears to be Micro Machines.
Whew, that’s half of them! Let’s take a quick break before we tackle the last five. How’re you, anyway? We never really talk much anymore. Weather’s a bit rubbish, isn’t it?
Okay, let’s crack on with the last five. Magnetic by Nature is a side-on platformer without any platforms, presumably focusing on magnets pushing and pulling you away (or into) hazards instead. Silence of the Sleep is a side-on horror adventure with lots of puzzles and not very many enemy encounters, and – judging by the screenshots – some really nice art. The Joylancer: Legendary Motor Knight is an old-school action game with a retro aesthetic, currently in Early Access. The Detail appears to be a Telltale game created by people other than Telltale and focused on crime noir in the modern day, and Peter quite liked it, as you can read here. Finally, Z is an ancient RTS with some unique zone control mechanics, which was recently re-released onto digital storefronts.
Okay, I think that’s the lot! I’m assuming that The Detail on offer here is just the first episode (as that’s also all that’s up on Steam), but it should give you a pretty good taster. Without having actually played any of these but Z, I’d probably guess that The Detail and Wrack are the stand-outs, but I suspect at least one of the racers will provide some solid entertainment, and I’m actually pretty intrigued by pretty much everything else in there. Yes, even Dark.
If you fancy picking this bundle up, you can do so on the Bundle Stars website for €5.21.
It’s worth noting that Bundle Stars are currently running a Bundle Fest promo, with two bundles going up every day for the next five days. I suspect they’re going to be time-limited, so it might be worth keeping an eye on their site to see what goes up.Related to this article
