January 15 th, 2013: A new website specialising in digital game deals shows that it’s possible for games to do good. The Indie Jam Bundle, available today from bundlestars.com, supports independent game developers, raises funds for charity and saves gamers up to 95% off the combined retail price, all at the same time.

The indie game sector is in the midst of a creative boom, driven by solo developers and small teams who are producing exciting and highly innovative titles. Gamers who pick up the new Indie Jam Bundle will gain access to eight incredible games designed by indie developers.

The games, which are all compatible with Microsoft Windows® and can be downloaded immediately, are Dead Horde, Future Wars, Greed: Black Border, Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes, Stellar Impact, Trapped Dead, Twin Sector and Unstoppable Gorg.

In addition, two more mystery titles will be unlocked before the bundle ends, taking the total to 10 games for less than £4.

The diverse range of titles means there’s something for everyone. Zombie shooters keep company with futuristic strategy and adventure games, while RPG parody Grotesque Tactics rubs shoulders with the critically-acclaimed tower defence game, Unstoppable Gorg. And with several co-op and multiplayer games in the mix, including the online strategy game Stellar Impact, bundlers can game together.

Furthermore, a donation from Bundle Stars’ profits will go directly to Special Effect, a charity that enables anyone, whatever their disability, to enjoy computer games. Special Effect have experienced first-hand what a kick-start effect games can have on rehabilitation, inclusion and quality of life for disabled children and adults alike.

To get their hands on Indie Jam, gamers simply purchase the bundle at www.bundlestars.com, then redeem and download the games through Steam®, the world’s leading digital game store.

The Indie Jam Bundle is only available for a limited period. Gamers have until February 11 th to get their hands on the bundle at www.bundlestars.com.
