Bundle in a Box - The Adventure Bundle

In case there's anyone reading my blog who somehow hasn't heard from a more prominent source, allow me to make a quick plug for Kyttaro Games' recent launch of a new "pay what you want" bundle of adventure games, the Bundle in a Box. For a minimum asking price of $1.79 (with the price set to drop even further as more bundles are purchased), you can get: Gemini Rue, The Sea Will Claim Everything, Ben There, Dan That!, Time Gentlemen, Please!, and 1893: A World's Fair Mystery. If you beat the (current) average price of $5.76, you also get: Metal Dead and The Shivah -- seven games for one low price.

Purchasing the bundle will give immediate access to direct downloads (100% DRM-free), and you'll also receive Steam and Desura keys for applicable games. For every 15,000 bundles sold, Kyttaro will donate $2,000 to the Indie Dev Grant, a fund used to help upstart indie game developers, with the winner determined by votes cast from bundle purchasers. A portion of the sales revenue will also be donated to Perivolaki, a non-profit NGO helping mentally ill children and their families in Greece.

I've had a chance to play a couple of games in the bundle and can vouch that these are really great experiences that any fan of adventure games would enjoy (I'll be writing official reviews shortly), and you'd be doing some good for indie developers and disadvantaged children in the process. If none of these games interest you (or if you already own most of them and don't wish to buy this bundle), keep an eye on the site anyway, because they'll be running other bundles after this one. The Adventure Bundle will be on sale until June 6th.
