Having already kept the Bundle In A Box site alive for a year without launching a new bundle, Kyttaro Games has been looking for a solution for all the people who had loved our bundles and didn’t want to lose their games. Yes, we know, DRM-free games can always be downloaded and stored and many of our dear bundlers did this, but we needed something more permanent. And we found it! And no, we are not shutting the site down.
The lovely people of Groupees have volunteered to run Bundle In A Box themselves and try to keep its indie loving, DRM-free spirit alive and we happily handed them BIAB over.
For now, all the data, games and codes will remain on our servers and thus accessible the same way they have always been. Groupees, on the other hand, will be running new BIAB bundles on their site and eventually migrating everything to their servers, effectively merging BIAB into Groupees.
As for us, the Kyttaro Games (twitter, facebook) team, we hope everyone is satisfied with this solution. We did our best and are now confident we have found the perfect team to carry on our work. It’s time for us to focus on making games; an epic and wildly different RPG (with some amazing indie collaborators) for example.
Thanks for staying with us and enjoy the new Bundle In A Box!
Groupees Agrees to Take Over Bundle in a Box
Groupees will host Bundle in a Box accounts and run future Bundle in a Box Bundles
Portland OR USA, November 13, 2014: Groupees and Kyttaro Games have reached an agreement for Groupees to take over responsibility for the Bundle in a Box Bundle. Groupees plans to migrate all existing Bundle in a Box accounts to Groupees.com, as well as offer future Bundle in a Box promotions at Groupees.com.
“We are honored to keep the spirit of what Kyttaro Games created with Bundle in a Box alive and well,” said Thomas Brooke, Groupees’ Founder and CEO. “In a segment of the industry that has devolved somewhat into a race to the bottom, Bundle in a Box always stood for something more. Their commitment to shining the light on indie games and supporting indie development with their Indie Dev Grant should be commended. We look forward to continuing to support Kyttaro Games’ vision in future Bundle in a Box promotions offered at Groupees.com.”
“We are very pleased, as this deal with Groupees will allow Bundle in a Box to keep going and keep on supporting indie gaming,” said Konstantinos Dimopoulos. “We see Groupees as a real innovator in this space, and their community-first focus and understanding of the indie spirit makes them the perfect home for Bundle in a Box. For Groupees, like us, it was never about offering games at a cheap price. We look forward to watching Groupees continue to grow and for Bundle in a Box to be a part of its bright future.”
The Bundle in a Box website and customer accounts will be maintained until Groupees completes account and file migration. No official date has been set but the process is expected to be completed in Q1 of 2015. Further information about the process will be provided through Groupees and Bundle in a Box’s Facebook and Twitter channels.
