“Pay what you want” for hot new indie games bundle

Press release for immediate release:

March 5th, 2013: A digital games website is set to create a storm today as it releases its first pay-what-you-want bundle.

The Fire & Ice Bundle, the new offering from Bundlestars.com, puts buyers in control by letting them decide how much they want to pay for games.

The full 10-game pay-what-you-want bundle features a diverse mix of PC games that have never been bundled together before, from simulations to adventure games and from horror to sci-fi.

For a minimum of just £1.00, gamers can get their hands on two games including Tiny Troopers, which can be redeemed on Steam®. But buyers who pay above a higher limit will also have immediate access to six additional games, plus two mystery bonuses set to be revealed before the bundle ends.

By purchasing The Fire & Ice Bundle, gamers are doing their bit to support game developers and help charity. A percentage of Bundle Stars’ profits go directly to Special Effect, a charity that enables anyone, whatever their disability, to enjoy computer games.

Gamers who pay above the minimum may also find themselves rewarded in other ways. The top contributor will receive a 32-game PC CD-ROM bundle from respected publisher Iceberg Interactive, with a combined value of over £500.

The top five contributors will also receive beta keys for the highly anticipated StarDrive, granting them early access to the 4X sci-fi/strategy indie game that’s only currently available for pre-order. Visitors can keep track of the top contributions by following the new leaderboard feature on Bundlestars.com.

The Fire & Ice Bundle is only available for a limited period. Gamers can buy and download this bundle at www.bundlestars.com.
