Summerbatch: Volume One

Comments (3) | Views (2,077)


JohnBForget bundles, the real good stuff now comes in batches! Summerbatch: Volume One is a collection of indie adventure games from developers who have a habit of creating and releasing free games. Name your own price for this nice collection, scoring five adventure games for yourself (four and an action game, technically) and sending some monetary thanks to these very fine developers. And for every £500 raised, £50 goes to charity! As if you needed another excuse to grab the batch.

Here's what's included in Summerbatch:

Barely Floating - a point and click comedy adventure by Stemshock Interactive.
Jailbreak - a prison escape action game from Virtual Illusion.
Nancy the Happy Whore - another comedic adventure game, this one by Technocrat Games. Fun fact: you can choose Latin as the default language!
Patchwork - a fantasy-styled adventure game from Ivan Ulyanov.
Piss - a sci-fi themed point-and-click adventure from Ben Chandler.

Each of these games offers up several hours of entertainment with some fantastic writing and lovely low-res artwork. It's also worth noting that a few of them feature orange rated content, but you probably guessed that from their titles. Any one of these games would be worth a few slips of gold-pressed latinum on their own, so investing in the entire batch is absolutely a good idea!

Major bundle advantage--they are available for everyone (which is good for the devs because Mac and Linux users give more on average). Too bad the batch organizers don't require across the board platform compatibility.


Ack, the Summerbatch front page is a garbled mess on my Firefox. I had to search through the source to find the alternate 'noframes' link which seems to work well. Just add '/games/summerbatch' to the main page to get the 'noframes' page.
