FAQ

The Bundle In A Box Frequently Asked Questions:

 

What is this Bundle in a Box you are speaking of?

 

Bundle in a Box is a game bundle site that allows you gamers to purchase some of the best indie games for the price of your choice, provided, that is, you beat a seriously low minimum price of $1.99.  Paying above the average price of the bundle will get you even more excellent games.

 

As more bundles get grabbed amazing extras will be unlocked. Thus, well, spread the word!

 

What’s more, by buying those lovely games you’ll be helping both an important charity that’s close to our hearts and supporting indie developers via our Indie Dev Grant.

 

As this website has been set up by Kyttaro Games, an independent video game developer itself, we do actually care about the people that create games and do actually know our indie games very well indeed.  That is why we select those games that provide great experiences and can thematically fit together, and those developers that are truly worthy of your support.

 

That is also why we try and have a brand new game exclusively launched via each bundle.

 

 

Do you have one of those handy press kits available?

 

Why, yes, yes of course! We've created a press kit containing the Bundle in a Box logos, the game icons, a press release and more. You can grab it here.

 

 

What is the Indie Dev Grant?

 

The Indie Dev Grant is a grant designed to help indie game developers. For every 100 bundles sold, $15 are added to the grant. One indie developer voted by the esteemed fans of Bundle in a Box will get the grant at the end of the bundle.

 

No strings will be attached by either Bundle in a Box or Kyttaro Games. The grant can be used in any way the developer that earns it sees fit. The developer will in no way be obliged to co-operate with Kyttaro Games or Bundle in a Box.

 

 

Can I apply for the Indie Dev Grant?

 

Sorry. The submissions are now closed. 

 

 

How can I get notified of the next Bundle?

 

Oh, it’s pretty simple really. You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Google+. We also have a lovely blog. Oh, and do subscribe to our newsletter; you'll find it on our main bundle page.

 

 

How can I pay for the bundle?

 

Clicking the Buy Now! button will take you to our payment screen. From there, you can select any of the available payment amounts or enter your own, provided it is above the minimum price. Should you pay above average you’ll be entitled to more games, and should you be generous enough to make the Top Bundlers list you’ll be asked to enter a nickname or a link to your twitter account; should you so wish, you can always remain an anonymous benefactor.

 

You can then choose to pay via Google Checkout, Paypal, Visa or Mastercard (all credit card payments are handled by Paypal).

 

 

Why pay above the average price?

 

You’ll be getting even more excellent indie games for a tiny fraction of their cost, that’s why! You'll also be supporting the wonderful people that created the games, a charity and the Indie Dev Grant.

 

 

I’ve bought the bundle! Now, uhm, how do I access my games?

 

An email containing a unique url will be sent to the email you provided during checkout; click this url to access your games. Make sure you keep that email safe. Should you lose it though, you can get it re-sent here.

 

 

How do I activate my games on Steam?

 

Log into your Steam account and under the "Games" menu select "Activate a Product on Steam...". Follow the instructions and when prompted enter the activation code/key.

 

 

How do I activate my games on Desura?

 

Log into your Desura account and find and click the "Activate Key" link. Enter your activation code/key.

 

 

I bought the bundle but never got an email... What can I do?

 

Try the “Lost Key” link on the top main Bundle in a Box page and you'll be asked to re-enter your email address. Make sure you enter the email address you used to buy the bundle with and your unique url will be emailed to you.

You can of course buy more than one gifts.

 

 

How do I redeem my gift code?

I bought a bundle as a gift, but my friend never received it. Any ideas?

Can’t seem to be able to use my credit card/paypal.

 

Our sincere apologies! Please let us know via the contact page and we’ll get to it immediately. Try and provide us with as much detail as possible regarding the part(s) of the transaction that isn’t (aren’t) working exactly or the errors you may be receiving. NEVER send us your PayPal or Google Checkout password or credit card number.

 

Also, please do make sure that you've definitely entered your correct credit card or Paypal details at purchase.

 

 

The link you sent me doesn’t work. What can I do?

 

We are very sorry about that; shouldn’t have happened really. Please contact us with your email address, and we'll try and fix things as soon as possible.

 

 

How do I know whether a game is available on Steam, Desura and/or as a DRM-free download?

 

Bundle in a Box tries to offer you as many versions of a game as possible and always the option to download DRM-free copies of all the games on offer. Those games that are also available on Steam, Desura or any other service, will also come with the appropriate activation codes/keys. An appropriate icon also shows whether a game is available for Mac or Linux.

 

Looking under each game on the Bundle in a Box homepage, you’ll notice there are icons telling you exactly what platform each game is available on. Just hover your mouse pointer over the icons…

 

If a game is available (just to give an example) as a DRM-free download, on Steam and on Desura, it will be accompanied by three icons; hovering over the first will let you know of the download version, over the second of the Steam version and over the third of the Desura version.

 

 

If a game in the bundle is available on more than one services, will I get all versions mentioned on the bundle homepage when I buy the bundle?

 

Yes!

 

 

I missed the bundle, can I purchase it now?

 

Sadly, no. From the moment a specific bundle ends it is no longer available. You can obviously  still buy the individual games from the developers themselves and, of course, make sure you don’t miss the next bundle. Following us on Twitter, Facebook and Google + would make sure you won’t be missing the next Bundle In A Box.

 

 

Steam is saying my key is invalid. What should I do?

 

Make sure you have the latest version of Steam.  Try updating and even restarting  your Steam client for your key to work. Otherwise please contact us.

 

 

Desura is saying my key is invalid. What should I do?

 

Make sure you have the latest version of Desura.  Try updating and even restarting  your Desura client for your key to work. Otherwise please contact us.

 

 

How can I make sure I’ll know about new and forthcoming bundles?

 

Follow us on Twitter, Google + and Facebook. Also, well,the BLOG!
