The most original, exciting and interesting games on Steam are those developed by independent developers, and the results speak for themselves, with independent games outselling the latest triple-A titles. This year alone over 4,200 games have been released on Steam, and of those the overwhelming majority are indie-developed. Whenever possible we shine a light on the best of the best, helping boost their visibility amongst our millions of users. For buyers of new NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPUs, systems and laptops, we also include some of these indie games free with the purchase.
Today, we’re launching a new indie bundle, enabling buyers of participating GeForce GTX 1060 and 1050 graphics cards and systems, and GeForce GTX 1060 laptops, to claim a free copy of either Maize, Raw Data, or Redout.
Maize, from Finish Line Games, is a just-released first-person adventure game about what happens when two scientists misinterpret a memo from the U.S. Government and create sentient corn. Explore an abandoned farm and a not-so-abandoned underground research facility as you solve puzzles and uncover the mysteries around Maize, and possibly learn a bit about yourself along the way. With a colorful cast of characters and an absolutely absurd world, Maize offers up a unique experience that keeps the surprises coming.
Redout, from 34BigThings, is a spiritual successor to classic arcade racing games such as F-Zero, Rollcage, and WipeOut. It’s designed to be an uncompromisingly fast, tough and satisfying driving experience, with a physically-led driving and physic model that rewards skill with even faster speeds.
A sharp, low-polygon look is accentuated by the latest state-of-the-art Unreal Engine 4 shading and lighting effects, and a heart-pounding dynamic soundtrack gets your blood pumping for a classically-inspired, modern-day, futuristic arcade racer that can be played on or offline, and in all the latest Virtual Reality headsets.
Raw Data, from Survios, is one of the most immersive and exciting Virtual Reality games available (note, HTC Virtual Reality headsets require at least a GeForce GTX 1060). Take control of unique characters with special powers, weapons, and swords, and attempt to survive against waves of enemies on your own, or online with another player. Utilizing some of the best graphics and VR game mechanics seen to date, Raw Data is a breathtaking VR experience that’s getting better and better with each Early Access update.
Furthermore, GeForce GTX 10-Series users, including those who buy the GeForce GTX 1060 featured in this bundle, can activate NVIDIA VRWorks’ Multi-Res Shading, improving Raw Data performance by up to 30%. In turn, you can use that performance increase to enhance graphical fidelity, further improving immersion. Learn more here.
