Two new bundles just went live:
Groupees 1C
Pay at least $1 to get
Ascension to the Throne (DRM free)
Men of War: Vietnam Special Edition (Steam
And if you pay more than $4 you will also get
Konung 3: Ties of the Dynasty (DRM free)
King's Bounty: Platinum Edition (contains King's Bounty: The Legend, Armoured Princess & Crossworlds) (Steam & GOG).
First unlock will be, at 2500 sold bundles:
Death Track Resurrection (probably steam)

A rather solid bundle, Ascension to the throne is alright if you are starved for SRPGs, Men of War Vietnam is really good, and the King's Bounty series is excellent. I have not played Konung 3, so I can't comment on it.


The second one is is a "build a bundle" style bundle, where you get to pick which games you want, at a low price for each individual game and is called the Build a Meridian 4 bundle
You get steam keys for all of the games. And the games are:
Larva Mortus
Penguins Arena: Sedna's World
Crash Time 2
Pacific Storm
Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes
Scratches: Director's Cut
Greed: Black Border
Space Trader: Merchant Marine
Shadowgrounds
Obulis
Vigil: Blood Bitterness
Tank Universal

and at 750 sold bundles, you will also get RIP Trilogy


Overall, a weaker bundle, even if there are more games in it. Scratches is a really good adventure game, and Shadowgrounds is one of the better isometric action games that I have played, but it has been in so many bundles that I'm almost drowning in Shadowgrounds keys. Grotesque tactics is rather shallow, which makes it an uninteresting SRPG. Can't comment on the other games, as I have not played them, but I've not seen any positive comments on any of them. Pacific storm looks like it might have potential, for those who enjoy sea battles and strategy games & Penguins Arena is apparently dead (it is a multiplayer game with no players).
