Developer Calvin French of Kitty Lambda Games cites 'Ultima VI' and 'The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past' as strong influences.

It's got a bit of a blocky aesthetic -- even 'Minecraft'-esque to a degree -- and there's all that domestic looting that 'Skyrim' players have become accustomed to.

Offered by IndieGameStand until July 5, the pleasingly surreal adventure can be nabbed by site visitors for a mere $0.25.

In keeping with established bargain bundle tradition, those who pay $1 or more obtain download codes for Desura and GOG, two popular online game retailers (it's already a Steam Greenlight hopeful).

Beating the average payment, which has been floating at around $1.50, unlocks a bonus package.

It contains 'Paradise Perfect,' an episodic, experimental boat rescue game which is the latest from Calgary-based Calvin, as well as papercraft designs for 'The Real Texas' cast of characters and its OST.
