The itch.io Summer Selects Bundle 2023 has some real indie gems

By - | Views: 14,691

Another chance for you to pick up a few sweet games while also saving your pennies. The itch.io Summer Selects Bundle 2023 is live. This time around the choices are pretty good and a few of the games included are true gems, some that get often overlooked amongst the crowd. So here's what you can get.

Included are:

  • APICO (Linux Native) - a laid-back beekeeping sim game about breeding, collecting, & conserving bees!
  • Heck Deck (Linux Native) - a bullet hell card game where time only moves when you do.
  • Backpack Hero (Linux Native) - the inventory management roguelike! Collect rare items, organize your bag, and vanquish your foes!
  • Residual (Linux Native) - a survival platformer from Orangepixel. In a forgotten galaxy full of strange planets, a lone explorer crash-lands on one with an ancient alien secret. Venture forth from the shipwreck across a harsh, unpredictable, procedurally generated world.
  • CANNELÉ & NOMNOM (Linux Native) - a fantasy comedy interactive fiction game. Players follow an amnesic individual who hires a duo of disastrous detectives in order to investigate three mysteries.
  • Midnight Scenes - This is the third in a series of short horror tales with adventure elements by Octavi Navarro, creator of the critically acclaimed games The Supper and The Librarian, and artist on games like Thimbleweed Park and Photographs.

Check out the bundle here available for $9.

I'm a big fan of APICO, Heck Deck and Backpack Hero - the bundle is worth it just for those three!

It was definitely there when I looked yesterday, but apparently that was an error.

If you scroll to the bottom of the bundle description, you'll find this bit:

That's a shame.

Btw. APICO is excellent.
