Hey, can you expand a little bit for me? It seems to be a paid bundle. You buy the bundle, which gives you the right to get it's contents for "free" ? Am I misunderstanding? Shows as $38 for me.

Sorry, I forgot to add the youtube video.

You have to add the code GETTAFI at checkout. This will put the price to 0 when you checkout.
When the bundle is bought, you can buy each element (though not the last one) for free.

Hope there is still time for you to get the bundle.

That worked, thank you very much, and the last one also worked for me now and it was free, so I'm not sure if they fixed it for everyone.

Thanks. Note that the POLYGON Icon Pack is available on Synty's site for free (with code), and everything sold there is for both Unity and Unreal Engine.

UE already gave some Synty stuff in the past as freebies, but the icon pack is new. Perhaps it will appear in the September free content.

I don't think so. I believe the first asset pack I got was free at Unity but still I had to enter paypal information.
