Will you buy this?
Missing a game.. And a documentary.. Hmm.. Idk.. suspicious about new bundle sites
"...susp[i]cious about new bundle sites..."
Omfg... I made a spelling error... <.<
For the record, I wasn't commenting about that. I'm not one of those people. ;-)
Now worries, I do them all the time! ^ ^
Doos u eithen tiep.....just messing xD
Hmm, unless that story is just a lie, they have some contacts with Devolver Digital (publisher of Hotline Miami or Shadow Warrior), so they might be legit.
Edit: Looks like story is not just a lie made up to make them legit.
tier1 cool, bought
For some reason, it says "This deal has expired" in a red button at the top for me. I even tried reloading after killing my adblocker. Still nothing.
And it appears the bundle has raised a whole $4.
Same here. They do have a rep on /r/gamedeals so the mods there have verified them at the very least.

You didn't leave that comment up long :P
I was asking for a link to the rep on reddit, but then I saw they posted right here in the thread. :-D
He's over here (if you still care). Site seems to have a working 'Pay What You Want' button again as well.
You shouldn't be getting the error anymore. The amount raised is the amount of money going to charity, it's not an active counter of the total amount that people have purchased.
Have everything so pass but this is the first I've heard about this site. I wonder who they are :/.
We are a brand new site and this is our debut bundle. Hopefully we can win your business with the next one!
Oh don't worry about it. I may have one too many games, so more often than not, I tend to own the majority of any given bundle :P. If it is any consolation, Pathologic Classic HD was on my wishlist before I won it :D.
After reading the info below (in the page, not here)... Are they giving 10% of the AD revenue or the bundle revenue (or both?) to SpecialEffect? O.o
We are giving 10% of the total Net Revenue (Amount paid minus taxes and payment processing fees) to SpecialEffect. That wording is provided to us by SpecialEffect in order to be in compliance with UK law. I am not sure why it says advertising revenue, but it needs to be there in order to be compliant.
Two steam movies that I don't already have? I might get this.
This is tempting for the cleaned up version of Pathologic classic, but at $4+ for the BTA, I'm not so sure.
10% is going to someone because Peter Molyneux screwed them over... that's almost a cause I can get behind.
Good guy Bryan Henderson asking for money to go to charity. Not many teenagers would take a pass on the cash like that.
Agreed, I've been talking to him on and off for 6 months now and I am floored by how mature he is. He has a big heart and a level head on his shoulders.
I am one of the co-founders of GameBundle.com. We can appreciate that it's hard to figure out whether a site is trustworthy or not, hopefully this link showing us as an official vendor for Devolver Digital will help ease those concerns: http://www.devolverdigital.com/static/vendors/
MatrixRaven, you definitely shouldn't be getting an error like that, we'll look into it.
The wording with regards to "advertising" is required wording from our agreement with SpecialEffect. It's boilerplate wording that must be used if we are going to specify a percentage amount which we have. I can assure you that we are giving 10% of the Net Revenue (Price paid minus payment processing fees and taxes)
Thank you for clarifying. Sorry if I sounded rude though, it was confusing to me!
No problem, we agree that the wording is a little odd :)
Not sure if it's just me but your counter is broken, it only shows $8 to me (the counter on the top).
Edit: or does it show the amount SpecialEffect is going to get? as I just saw it go to 9
Edit2: Yes, it does.. I am stupid.. It's clearly written over there, sorry =.=
No problem, you're not the first who has asked about this so don't beat yourself up :)
Hello, what is the last date of this bundle ?
The bundle will end on March 19th, we'll update the site with the end date later (we had an issue with our countdown timer earlier today)
I'm on Chrome, and i can't type in my email address... or choose a password in the sign up. Says "invalid email format". Also the password doesn't validate either
We were having server issues but they have since been fixed. You should be able to go through the login and sign up process efficiently now.
Oh no, no bitcoin option :(
Please accept bitcoin :)
Thanks, Bitcoin is definitely on our radar.
Can you give me a little more detail on the issues you're having with signing up? Can you try going to https://www.gamebundle.com/gb/register and let me know if you have the same issue?
Works like a charm now. What i did was i just typed each one in and waited a few minutes and it validated. Now it works great.
We were having some slight issues with amazon instances spinning up and down which was causing this problem. We think it's fixed now.
Pathologic Classic HD looks interesting, but not high enough on my want list to justify a $4 purchase on a new bundle site, especially since the rest of the games/movies aren't tempting at all.
Still haven't played Breach & Clear: Deadline from the Humble Bundle, and it cost me much more there! :(
Tempted for Pathologic.
$8 max tier with a maybe good maybe awful game is too risky. If it was an bta game I'd look into it, but no thanks for the moment. Maybe once that game is announced, it will be worth a shot.
We have an upgrade system in place so if you only want to commit to BTA price right now, and you like the additional game that will be revealed on March 7th you can upgrade at that time.
That's good to know. Thanks.
I remember when there were only like 4 bundle sites. And there was only a bundle for each other like every other month.
Now there are like 10 and they have a new one every week. lol
Some very good games (at least Guacamelee that I've played, but Breach & Clear: Deadline also looks good, just haven't had a chance to play it yet.), but already own most of them so not sure. Only one I'm missing that I'm interested in is Pathologic Classic HD.
$1 for breach and clear, absolutely must buy for me.
I paid $1 for the first tier. There was an error message saying the transaction had been unsuccessful but when I checked my accounts onsite library I had received the keys. I've added 3 of them successfully to my Steam library - the other was for a game I already had. I received an email from paypal confirming the correct amount was charged to my account. I also noticed that there were more entries on the leader board than it showed for bundles sold ..
So in summary seems a legit site so far even if the web site maybe needs a bit of TLC on the development front ;)
If I bought $1, can I pay more later to unlock higher tier?
Yes, there is upgrade functionality on the site if you haven't purchased the highest tier.
I have upgrade buttons available for both higher tiers so looks like upgrading is an option
I'd love to get Pathologic but the BTA is too high.
I wonder… Train Fever managed to avoid bundlification when it was at Tier 3 at HB, will it also survive this one?
I think they forgot to put any god games in the bundle
The "Forgotten God" is a real person, read the info on the site.
Except how many people are going to know or see that, or care for that matter? Now take that number and compare it to the number of people that were expecting god games to be in the bundle. So from a practical standpoint it's only going to serve to confuse people O_o
Well, it's on the same page where you view information on the bundle and/or make a purchase, so...hopefully everyone?
I initially assumed it was god games too but they had a reason to name it what they did. Although "Forgotten God Bundle" would have been less confusing.
Edit: You completely changed the meaning of your post 5 minutes after I replied, so...
I'm not saying it's a perfect idea. I just replied because you didn't seem to understand the name.
going to grab for Pathologic, might upgrade after the mystery game is revealed..
Oh boy is Pathologic tempting. Has the BTA been around $4.35 the whole time?
BTA was $4.17 a few minutes ago, but now it's going back up again. So it is changing.
Pathologic in a bundle? Sweet. Going to get this one.
Doesn't hurt to have another bundle site. Not convinced that it's a good deal compared to other bundle sites, but we shall see what the future holds. I'm not sure about the mystery game though. Doesn't say when the bundle ends. If the reveal is before the end of the bundle, that's okay, but if you are stuck going in blind, meh.
Ahh, two of them are videos. That's a big meh.
The last day of the bundle is March 19th we had an issue with our countdown timer earlier so we took it down. We'll replace it with a static end date when activity on the site slows down a bit (possibly tonight). The Mystery game will be revealed on March 7th so you'll have plenty of time to make a purchase decision after it is revealed.
Well thanks for the information, very helpful. Good luck with the site, I wish you every success and I look forward to seeing what you can deliver. I hope I didn't come across as ungrateful.
Not at all, we appreciate all feedback :)
Can I ask what the rationale was for putting the mystery game in a static price tier? It seems like it makes better business sense to put mystery games in the BTA tier. With a mystery game in BTA, the implicit message is "If you're interested, beat the average now, because it's going to go up once we reveal this awesome mystery game!" and that pushes people to BTA when they normally might not. Obfuscating a top price tier game just seems like it'd lead to losing revenue due to people hesitating and then forgetting about it, especially when the reveal is more than a week out.
Great question and the honest answer is that we probably should have put the mystery game in a different tier and changed the games up a little bit. It's a learning experience for us as well.
The good news for our customers is that we have an upgrade system in place and if they think the game is worth it when it is revealed then they'll be able to easily upgrade their purchase.
Thanks fo rthe feedback, we appreciate it.
Thanks for your answer. It seems like you guys are making a great effort to provide unique, worthwhile bundles, so I'll be keeping an eye on you and hoping you do well. (Personally, you had me with Pathologic on this one, and not just because it's never been bundled before.)
I did notice the upgrade feature. Are you planning on sending out emails to people who purchased the lower tiers when the mystery game is revealed? I could personally use a reminder.
Yes, when we reveal that game we'll be sending out an email to all of our subscribers letting them know which game it is and that if they've already purchased they have the ability to upgrade.
