[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Selected by our fans; The Chosen Bundle from Indie Royale is a second chance to get the games from last year's popular St. Patrick's Day Bundle. Over 1500 people voted with St. Patrick's winning in a close vote over The Difficult Second Bundle. The poll was run on Twitter, our Facebook and Google+ pages.

Leading the Chosen Bundle is Hard Reset from Poland's Flying Wild Hog. Hard Reset is an action-packed, single-player shooter for the PC. Set in a cyberpunk city, Hard Reset emphasizes over-the-top destruction and gives you a huge variety of weapons to dispatch hordes of enemies. The Extended Edition is available from Steam or the regular game is on Desura & DRM-Free. You also get an artbook and the OST (mp3 & FLAC). The Extended Edition was released in July 2012 and is different to the version in the original St. Patrick's Day Bundle. Kotaku called Hard Reset "a sexy, cyberpunk shooter".

Next in the line-up of the Chosen Bundle is original 2D point and click adventure Jolly Rover (PC+Mac, from Steam, Desura & DRM-Free + OST) from Australia's Brawsome. Players follow the short and stubby tail of its canine protagonist across three wild and untamed tropical islands as he attempts to fulfil his dream of starting a circus. GameSpot reviewed it with the comment that "Jolly Rover is a swashbuckling canine adventure full of colourful characters and plenty of laughs."

Vertex Dispenser (PC+Mac from Steam + Vertex Vortex Remix &  Boss Fight DLCs) comes from one man game maker Michael Brough in the UK and is a fast-paced abstract strategy game with mathematical puzzle elements.

The last two games in this bundle are DLC Quest (PC+Mac, Desura & DRM-Free) and Lair Of The Evildoer (PC, Desura & DRM-Free) from Canada's Going Loud Studios, available for Windows from Desura & DRM-free with a Mac version too. With DLC Quest, the developer has made a game that mocks the games industry and its foibles whilst Lair Of The Evildoer is an RPG shooter which sees you escaping from Dr. Odious's evil doing lair!

Those who pay $8 USD or their currency equivalent during the Chosen Bundle will get Daniel Capo's O?.?S?.?T: Original Soundtrack in MP3 and FLAC format.

You can find more information on the Chosen Bundle, including real-time statistics and its current price, on its official website or via its Facebook, Google+ and Twitter pages. Grab this bundle now while the price is still low (unless kind purchasers lower the price) so that you'll have hours of specially chosen indie gaming to look forward to!
