Another set of cheap indie games has been bundled up to help you through the summer slump. The seventh Indie Gala bundle is offering three games with a fourth to be unveiled later, along with even more bonus games for paying more than the rolling target average.

The three games in the bundle include Rig'n'Roll, Space Rangers, and Reign: Conflict of Nations. The fourth game is still under wraps, and will be announced in the second week of the sale. If you pay more than the average (currently around $6.90), you also snag Death to Spies, Death to Spies: Moment of Truth, King's Bounty: Armored Princess, and UFO: Afterlight, plus another game to be announced. All in all you could score nine games out of this deal.

Your funds can go towards the disabilities organization AbleGamers and the Italian Red Cross to assist with earthquake relief.

Intriguing space sim-cum-RTS-cum-shooter-cum-trading sim-cum-RPG-cum-text adventure Space Rangers 2 is getting jazzed up in an expanded revamp, named Space Rangers HD: A War Apart. Announced today by publisher 1C Company, is slated for release on PC in Q4 2012.

A War Apart "remasters" Space Rangers 2: Rise of the Dominators and its expansion pack Reboot, and brings a new story too, revolving around space-pirates. Other shiny things include new spaceship upgrades, planetary battles, text quests, and hyperspace engagements, widescreen support, and updated to the graphics and interface.

Space Rangers is a genre-spanning curiosity, with turn-based space sections, planetside real-time strategy battles, text adventures, trading sim bits, and RPG-like character progression. SR2 reviewed well when it came out in 2006 but didn't garner too much attention, so a little polish should help it find more players.
