    GetGamesGo.com have launched a new pay-what-you-want bundle. The minimum is $1.50, although it is also available for free (to avoid paypal fees I'm assuming?), and it includes the following games:The games are distributed through a variety of methods, ranging from DRM-Free direct downloads to Steam, and the money is split between the developers and GamesAid.

    EDIT: in response to the sheer number of people whining about the emails taking a while to arrive, I would just like to point out that this is a small distributer which probably did not ever anticipate the amount of interest this bundle is getting. Please be patient, it took 2 hours for my emails to arrive, and could very well take even longer as time goes on.

    They seem to have taken it down due to the sheer demand for the bundle. I guess that's what happens when you start offering free games :\

    These are some good games, but unfortunately the email they supposedly sent me doesn't arrive.

    Only one of the games (Serious Sam) is on STEAM. The others say they're DRM free while they're not.

    My brother and I are both having the same problem. Only want one game from the bundle, and I need to deal with support already. Really wish these indie bundle upstarts would test things before they make them available to the world.

    It's back up now (I'm late with this one)
    Seems they're multiple emails, one per product. And mine have only just started arriving.
    Actually, torrents are far worse for bandwidth. Plus you get the satisfaction of actually knowing you own these games.

    Still not working here...
    I think that was Thesolcity's point - seeing as he can get the games so cheap/free, there's no need for him to torrent them, resulting in less bandwidth being used.

    If only I just got like $10 for these goddamn bundles. I already kinda kicked the shit with the Humble Bundle and only spending $.50 but I have nothing left. And this one's pretty good too, Serious Sam and Munch's Odyssey are worth it.

    See my previous two posts, their system is presumably getting hammered by people bagging free copies of these games. The emails took roughly two hours to arrive for me, and as this spirals in popularity could very well end up taking even longer.

    I am going to be honest I did pay a cent for this bundle but that us because I had every game except Serious Sam from previous Steam sells.

    I get why they did it, but the "pay what you want" should have an asterisk.

    I tried using your link... which gives an error (http://getgamesgo.com/Little-Big-Bunch) but adding "www." does work.
