Blink | Bounty #1

Blink | Bounty #1

You know how people say “don’t blink, you might miss it”? Well, there’s this eerie indie game, Blink, where you basically have to do exactly that. “Blink” and “miss it”, that is.

Two college students, Ryan Sligh and Loic Ferdinandi, are the brain and muscle behind a fledgling indie studio, nextReality Games.

Their debut indie game, Blink, demands that you use both twitch reflexes and lateral thinking to progress.

We’re pretty impressed with this little indie gem. nextReality Games has managed to augment fairly basic gameplay mechanics with slick level design, charming art, and classic storytelling.

If you want, skip the intro and scroll down to the bounty announcement further below or just start hunting now.

Best Deal for Blink

Blink is currently available in IndieGala’s Hump Day Bundle #63 for only $3.99. It comes with 9 other Steam games so you likely won’t find a better deal any time soon. Support our fine young college devs and pick it up!

Blink | Bounty #1

Blink – Intro

The story unfolds with a disturbing scene where your father mysteriously… disappears? It’s a pretty run-of-the-mill prologue, but Blink‘s focus isn’t actually the story itself.

The real focus is on the interesting mental tug-of-war that you have to play between light and dark. You perceive the world from the 2D vantage point of a supernatural ‘Eye’. The Eye’s “blink” temporarily renders everything around you immaterial, but it turns afterimages of light into solid objects.

You need to use this–often treacherous–ability to solve puzzles and complete the game’s challenges. It’s only 9 Steam Achievements to 100% and they’re pretty fun ones.

Light Fantastik | Bounty #1

You’ve heard that smart talk about using both sides of your brain, right? No? How the ability to shift rapidly between divergent and convergent thinking is the key to enlightenment? 🤓 I kid you not. Play Light Fantastik and find out for yourself.

The Turkey-based trio that make up the independent studio, Hayali, created the fun Light Fantastik. This indie game challenges you to “adapt to an inverted world” and “use both sides of your brain”.

As it turns out, this is quite the fun challenge. There are also 23 Steam Achievements to keep you company along the way.

So, what do you say? Are you ready to start down the path towards becoming a genius?

If you want, skip the intro and scroll down to the bounty announcement further below or just start hunting now.

Best Deal for Light Fantastik

Light Fantastik featured recently in IndieGala’s Friday Special Bundle #73. So, once again, if you’re a collector you might have it somewhere in your backlog.

Light Fantastik | Bounty #1

If not, you can pick it up on Steam for only $3.99 and support the budding indie game studio! (Good job, team!)

Light Fantastik – Intro

Besides its interesting gameplay, there is an abstractly illustrated folktale-like story in Light Fantastik.

You’re on a perilous platformer journey to find a wise old man. He’s the only person that might have an answer to the strange sickness that has broken out in your village. You’ve been infected yourself.

You’ll need to switch between a light world and a dark world to succeed. In the light world you can see clearly but you’re slightly less agile. The dark world is more obscure and your controls are inverted — but you can jump higher.

As you go forward on your travels, bizarre side effects will begin to manifest themselves in your adventure. The countdown timer in each level is a clear indication that a certain end awaits you…

Light Fantastik | Bounty #1

Below Kryll | Bounty Hunt #1

below-kryll-bounty-hunt-1

We’re hit with failures all the time — some more than others. But as you know, part of being an achievement hunter is relentlessly hitting that ‘continue’ button on ‘game over’ screens. This is why we give mad props to Team Kryll — the indie dev studio behind Below Kryll.

Below Kryll is by no means a failure. However, we have a hunch that the game devs really know a thing or two about the indie struggle.

Team Kryll pushed this project through a failed Indiegogo campaign and into a weak launch on Steam over 3 years ago. Chances are Below Kryll hasn’t even blipped on the periphery of your radar.

Still, trust us, you might easily become one of the fervent few who play it, love it, and own it. Don’t take our word for it, ask John Walker, Senior Editor at Rock, Paper, Shotgun. (You know, namedropping works sometimes. 😁)

Now, get ready for one helluva bounty hunt!

If you want, skip the intro and scroll down to the bounty announcement further below or just start hunting now.

Best Deal for Below Kryll

You might already have Below Kryll if you collected IndieGala’s Hump Day Bundle #56.

If not, we recommend supporting the devs — and the game’s awesome community — by picking it up on Steam where it’s only $4.99. (Extra GamerJuice for everyone who does this! 🍹)

below-kryll-achievement-hunting

Team Kryll has even put up a demo if you want to try it out first.

Below Kryll – intro

When you first set eyes on Below Kryll, the burst of color and anachronistic juxtaposition (🤓 that’s the only way to describe it!) of items is a little weird.

To be honest, you wouldn’t be the first if you mistook it for some asset flipping clone. Luckily, what you’re looking at is one of the past 3 years’ true hidden indie gems.

On the one hand, Below Kryll is a single-player 2D side-scrolling action-RPG. But on the other, it’s an online, continuous world composed of developer and community-crafted adventures.

We know from experience that it takes a while for it to sink in just how rich Below Kryll actually is. So we’re not going to waste time with explanations.

If slick platforming immersed in elaborate stories, puzzles, action, beautiful pixel art, and upbeat music is your thing, then head Below Kryll now.

Like Team Kryll says, “there are literally hundreds of hours of quality gameplay”. We hope this bounty hunt adds to the fun of a few of them.

Ninja Pizza Girl | Bounty #1

ninja-pizza-girl-bountymode

“Disparity Games’ lovely Ninja Pizza Girl is probably the best game about being a good person which also includes ninjas, parkour, and pizza,” says Thomas Faust from IndieGames.com.

When you play Ninja Pizza Girl, whatever other sentiments you might have, you will get this warm, fuzzy feeling. And we’re not talking about all the running, jumping, and hot pizza.

This indie gem was made by an Australian family that have a story you should know. But the warm, fuzzy feeling comes from all the soul that went into the project.

Get ready to fall in love with ‘Gemma’s Story’ (actually one of the four cheevos you need to unlock) and use your ninja-fueled parkour skills to do something that the world would not be the same without.

Pizza deliveries!

If you want, skip the intro and scroll down to the bounty announcement further below or just start hunting now.

Best Deal for Ninja Pizza Girl

Ninja Pizza Girl has featured in Fanatical’s Spotlight Bundle 4, the Humble Freedom Bundle, and Groupees’ Girls Girls Girls! It may be buried in your backlog.

Otherwise, you can pick it up for 80% off on IndieGala which is an incredible price for this beaut.

Ninja Pizza Girl – Intro

This game is all about blazing across rooftops to deliver pizzas on record time. You’ll need to dodge obstacles and enemies and master fast, flow-based parkour mechanics.

Embedded within Ninja Pizza Girl‘s addictive, just-one-more-replay stages is a heartwarming story. Well, it could all actually be way too cheesy for your taste. 🍕

In any case, we’re not dropping any spoilers. If you’re always testing how nimble and quick you are, this is a bounty hunt for you.

Aritana and the Harpy’s Feather | Bounty #1

Aritana and the Harpy's Feather

We’ve just added a São Paulo vacation to our bucket list. You should too. It’s where the creators of Aritana and the Harpy’s Feather have their offices. It must be gorgeous if their debut indie game is any indication!

The Duaik brothers of Duaik Entertainment went from a graphic design firm to one of the most notable indie studios in Brazil. They’ve even got a sightly sequel coming up!

Regardless, Aritana and the Harpy’s Feather is still a hidden gem as far as the Steam community is concerned. If you haven’t got around to playing it yet, you’re in for an epic treat.

Boot your game machine and set it to #BountyMode!

If you want, skip the intro and scroll down to the bounty announcement further below or just start hunting now.

Best Deal for Aritana and the Harpy’s Feather

Aritana and the Harpy’s Feather has been in two IndieGala bundles. It could easily be somewhere in your backlog if you picked up the Friday Special Bundle #53 or the Indie Game Lover Bundle.

Otherwise, you can pick it up for $3.99 (-60% — a new historical low) from IndieGala (ends October 24th, 12:00 pm GMT).

Aritana and the Harpy's Feather

Aritana and the Harpy’s Feather – intro

With all the charm of a Pixar adventure, Aritana and the Harpy’s Feather thrusts you into a classic Hero’s Journey. Gameplay-wise, it’s a run, jump, combat and reflex-driven platformer.

Your tribe’s chieftain is gravely ill and you, against the Wiseman’s warning, set out to find the missing ingredient to his cure. That ingredient is the feather of a rare harpy. It’s also located in the treacherous lands of the man-eater, Mapinguari.

Aritana and the Harpy’s Feather tells a tale inspired by Brazilian indigenous culture. Your odyssey will take you through stunning, exotic and surreal locations accompanied by the drumming soundtrack of jungle rhythms.

Run like a jaguar. Attack like a snake. Fly like a harpy. Are you ready to face the Mapinguari and save your chieftain?

Heckpoint | Bounty #1

heckpoint-achievement-hunting

You know that what-the-heck mood when you just wanna run, gun and blow up everything in your path? Now, there’s an app for that. Oops, we mean a game. Just another game. Heckpoint.

The indie team — NODACOY  — that created Heckpoint aren’t pretending to be original. “…We are huge fans of classics like Castlevania and Diablo, and it’s gonna be really kinda hard for us not to add those elements to our games.”

And that’s absolutely fair, because usually we want the same thing just not the exact same thing. Why on earth are we getting philosophical here? 🤔

Totally uncalled for, folks. We apologize.

Do you want to dispatch some baddies and unlock some cheevos or what?

If you want, skip the intro and scroll down to the bounty announcement further below or just start hunting now.

Best Deal for Heckpoint

Heckpoint was in IndieGala’s Black Friday Special Bundle last year. If you’ve got that long of a backlog you need to get your priorities straight. Are you an achievement hunter or not?

🤭 Just kidding. Seriously, playing Heckpoint just puts one in that kind of mood.

If you want to support the devs (and they clearly need a lot of help) the game lists at $7.99. But what the Heckpoint, right?

(It’s really hard to tell if all of this sounds encouraging, actually.)

Heckpoint

Heckpoint – intro

For the record, we absolutely love Heckpoint but each time we open our mouth… that is… tap our — you know what? Here’s how NODACOY describes it (paraphrased):

“Part bullet hell, part hack ‘n’ slash, part rogue-lite action-packed insanity with over 70 perks to unlock, 6 worlds to destroy and 7 unique characters, set to a completely original soundtrack.”

Heckpoint
Just interrupting to show you a typical day in Heckpoint.

“Fight back the hordes [of interdimensional conquerors], unlock powerful and devastating weapons. Customize your load-out and head out into the glitch for heart-pounding brutal action. Destroy the world, your enemies, everything. Find the obelisk. Can you reach the HECKPOINT?”

Heckpoint is also a pro-gen, side-scrolling, shoot-em-up. You know, just making sure we tick all the right buzzwords.

OMG! Why can’t we make it sound like we like it?! We’re “glitched” for sure.

Heckpoint

Achievements

We’re putting out a bounty for the following Heckpoint achievements:

On Rusty Trails | Bounty Hunt #1

On Rusty Trails | Achievement Hunting

We flipped when our friends at IndieGala suggested On Rusty Trails as one of the games for our first lineup of bounties.

Not only have we been fans of Black Pants Studio since Tiny and Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers. We knew that On Rusty Trails had to be their absolute most underrated game.

We get a dopamine kick if you discover hidden gems through BountyMode (it’s true!). So we hope you enjoy the On Rusty Trails Bounty Hunt #1. The game is, without a doubt, the ‘rustiest’ gem with a sparkle that we know!

If you want, skip the intro and scroll down to the bounty announcement further below or just start hunting now.

Best Deal for On Rusty Trails

On Rusty Trails is now available on IndieGala at 85% off which is a new historical low (at the time of this writing). It even comes with a neat little digital comic DLC!

On-Rusty-Trails-Card-Victory-is-ours

Double-check first though, chances are that you picked it up in Humble Bundle’s Yogscast Jingle Jam 2017.

On Rusty Trails – intro

On Rusty Trails is a modern, illustrative platformer, set in a prejudiced world that is ever suspicious of appearances.

In interviews, Black Pants Studio has explained that On Rusty Trails is actually a game about racism.

You are Elvis. Home owner, triangular metal person and lover of dryness. A sudden thunderstorm leaves your house dissolved into a pile of rubble. Only lightning-fast reactions will keep you from a looming rusty funeral.

But there’s a war brewing between two tribes: rusty reds (you’re one of them) and hairy blues.

Don your Shifty Suit to incognito yourself and and walk among suspicious hairy folk. Perilous puzzles and prejudiced platforms will bar your way in this deceptively complex gaming experience.

On Rusty Trails

BountyMode Beta: Everything You Need To Know

bountymode-achievement-hunting

It’s time to play Steam games in #BountyMode!

The coolest game mode to never exist — up until the BountyMode Beta, that is!

Unlock Steam Achievements and win rewards on BountyMode

That’s right. From now on, you’ll earn rewards (free PC games, DLCs, exclusives, etc.) for unlocking Steam achievements!

No, we’re not kidding. Why? Do we look like we’re kidding? 🤨

Whether you’re a casual clicker or a hardcore completionist, the BountyMode Beta has a spot for you.

Unlock Steam Achievements = Score Rewards

It’s really that simple. But of course we’re not just talking about any Steam achievements. That would be way too easy. 😈

No-ho-ho-ho, take it easy. We’re not talking about those impossibly difficult rewards that take eons to unlock either.

What we do at BountyMode is curate an interesting lineup of Steam achievements from handpicked titles that we challenge you to unlock. If you do — and you must be on time — you score rewards.

Rewards exist in two tiers — “Limited” and “Unlimited”.

You guessed right! Limited Rewards are more valuable. During the BountyMode Beta, we’ll aim for anywhere between 100-1000 Limited Rewards. We’re looking forward to increasing that number when we’re out of beta.

If you’re sore about the Limited Rewards, then you should know that the more bounty hunters, the more prizes.

So be the bearer of good news. Share, tweet, and email your friends. Here: you can retweet our welcome tweet right now.

Limited Rewards will simply be given to the first X number of players that meet a bounty’s requirements.

Slower bounty hunters will get the unlimited rewards. But there’ll always be GamerJuice for everybody. Toast to that! 🍹

Plug & Play: no profiles needed

Gamers won’t find a more docile companion app than BountyMode.

All you need to do is connect your Steam account, provide your email address, select a bounty, and go play!

You don’t need to worry about creating a profile or checking a leaderboard or anything. Bounties will be delivered directly and securely to your inbox.

You will need to make sure your Steam account settings are set to “Public”. But that’s all the tinkering you’ll need to do.

After that, just play, sit back, and wait for our magic emails.

(As a note, there will be profiles in the future, but BountyMode’s core functionality won’t change.)

The coolest PC gaming newsletter on the planet.

Please believe it!

OK. We may not be there yet officially (ahem) but it’s a reality in the pipeline.

No spam. No spitballing you with offers you couldn’t care less about. Just hard-earned bounties, stuff you like, and, of course, GamerJuice. 😋

You can just sign up now or learn more about Why PC Gamers <3 The BountyMode Newsletter.

Some say it’s the coolest delivery service for gamers since Paperboy. 🤥

Hey! We said some. But you could be one of them!

Weekly Cheevo Challenges

Because that’s what it’s all about! Getting some direction on what to play next, experiencing games fully, and clearing that Nile-long backlog.

We’ll also have flash challenges, shorter, and maybe even longer duration challenges, but our Weekly Cheevo Challenges will be right up most people’s alley.

…Right up most people’s alley. Did you feel that? That tingly sensation of how connected we are? We did. 🧘

At BountyMode, we believe that overcoming challenges defines us as individuals. We can’t wait to meet all of you legends out there.

If you’re  curious about what a bounty looks like, check out our first series.

Discover Hidden Gems

You’ll find plenty of disdainful rants about all the achievement spam games that there are on Steam. We agree, and we’ll generally steer clear of those game-shaped objects.

Keep in mind, this isn’t to bash any GamerJuice-blooded, leave-no-witnesses achievement hunters. But when we say we’re going to curate challenges we intend to do just that.

The truth is, you just don’t hear enough about all the hidden gems there are on Steam.

By now the term “hidden gem” sounds like a cliché — but trust us; you’ll be surprised. We heartily encourage you to try out new games and especially support indie development.

We’ll try to point you in the direction of good deals if we spot any but, honestly, there are far greater apps and communities for that.

The BountyMode Beta has prerequisite Steam Groups.

This is the BountyMode Beta, after all. I mean, we had to roll out the red carpet for you at some sort of gateway.

In order to join the BountyMode Beta you will need to belong to all of these Steam groups.

Why? Well, the first one is obvious. 😉 But 100pAG and Astats are the perfect ushers (and brawny bouncers!). 💪

The 100pAG and AStats communities are all about achievement hunting. They cheer you on and give you tips for reaching your goals.

Rumor has it they also have cheater snipers (may perpetual light shine upon their blessed hearts — *nudge* — chant with us) who’ll pop a wig faster than you can say “Steam Achievement Manager”.

Don’t even dream about cheating.

Not even daydreaming about cheating gets a pass.

In fact, we kept this part for last hoping we’d lose some cheaters down the line. Why, how we’d love to catch and drag their humbug asses out to the public square for shaming. 🤬 cheaters.

*Clears throat.*

We are firmly against cheating and we believe we don’t have to spell out what that means.

If you’re truly not certain what qualifies as cheating, just follow the AStats guidelines to be safe. Also, read our FAQ to be clear about bounty eligibility.

“Fair play” is a value we hold at heart and cheating is the antithesis of the achievement hunting spirit we want to foster at BountyMode.

The word “bounty” stems from the Latin “bonitās”, meaning “goodness”. Please keep that in mind.

We will ban any Steam account that gets caught cheating, and that was all she wrote.


Thanks for reading our introduction to the BountyMode Beta. We’re really excited to see where this goes and we’re thrilled you’re on the adventure with us!

If you have questions (we’re sure you do), write to us via team@bountymode.com or you might want to check out our FAQ first.

Carpe Diem!

Why PC Gamers HEART the BountyMode Newsletter

A delightful fiction that will soon be your reality

So you beat the boss level, unlocked a few cheevos, and decide to call it a night. You’re about to shut down the system (because you’re eco-conscious like that) when it happens…

One of those hard-not-to-click email notifications raids your attention. You almost blow it off, but a glimpse of the subject line makes your eyes pop. Indeed, it would make any gamer’s eyes pop…

“…Achievements Unlocked. Claim your bounty…”

The sender is BountyMode, and that’s when — gaspingly — you remember! Now you get prizes in your inbox for unlocking Steam achievements!

Your nimble-fingered gameplay, quick-thinking, and refusal to give up in the face of morale-crushing “game over” screens will never go unrewarded again!

Why PC Gamers <3 the BountyMode Newsletter

The BountyMode Newsletter: gamers’ most beloved delivery service since Paperboy

Alright, that may be a bit of an overstatement but we’re very stingy with those. Most of the time.

What we can promise is that BountyMode is a hassle-free, plug-and-play reward system for Steam games. If you’re a gamer, you’ll never be matched with a more docile companion app.

What this really means, in the most sophisticated of expressions, is that the BountyMode Newsletter doesn’t run that spam bullsh*t.

Expect only these 3 ingredients from any BountyMode Newsletter:

(1) Bounties

Actually, our main purpose for sending you an email will be to deliver your bounty. That is, to make sure you securely receive a reward you earned by unlocking achievements in our challenges.

The only other time we’d send you an email would be for administrative purposes or feature updates. BountyMode is currently in beta, and we’re responsible for keeping you informed of changes.

Other than that, you won’t catch us littering your inbox. Mostly because we really don’t have any need to. Plus we’re cooler than that.

N.B.: If you go and ace our challenges all at once, there’ll be a delegation of messengers from BountyMode making a ruckus in your inbox. But that’s different and of a more pleasant nature.

(2) Stuff You Like

Ahem… As a matter of fact (and we forgot to mention it just now) you might receive a promotional newsletter from us once a month. But don’t close the page before you hear us out!

Still here? Phew.

You see the thing is, you’ll probably want to hear about new challenges as soon as we release them. Every challenge has a deadline on it after all, so the sooner you know, the faster you can act.

Still, we’ll track challenges that you participate in and we won’t send you notifications if we don’t strongly believe it would interest you. And only once a month at that.

Our goal is to never send you stuff that you don’t like. You can quote us on that.

(3) GamerJuice

GamerJuice is a delicious cocktail of our own creation. You’ll find it in every email and it’s always on the house. Are you ready for your first serving? Just sign up today!

Want to help make the BountyMode Newsletter and our platform great?

Once again, BountyMode is in beta — the reason why everything’s still so clunky.

If you’d like to join us on this journey of building the #1 reward platform for Steam gamers, there are a couple of simple things you could do:

  • Write to us through team@bountymode.com with feedback and ideas. Tell us what we’re doing wrong, right, and what we could do better.
  • Join us where you’re most comfy: SteamFacebookTwitter
  • Chat with us on Discord: You’ll catch us hanging with 100Pals or on our own server.
  • And of course, play through lots of our bounties!

Thank you for reading and go on being the stuff of legend that you are!

Carpe Diem!

Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!

But why would we delete it? This has gotta be the best “Hello world!” post a Steam gamer will ever see! 🤥

Alright. This Pinocchio nose thing probably won’t play out well for us in the long run.

Since this is the BountyMode Blog, you’ll probably want to start right about here.

You are here to learn more about unlocking Steam achievements and scoring free PC games and other loot, right?

Carpe Diem!
