First Bundle In a Box of 2014 Is Live With a Groovy Lineup

Bundle In A Box (Groupees)

Told ya it was coming, and here it is: Bundle In A Box is back! After a quick glance at the lineup, I can safely say that any concerns were unfounded – some good stuff in there. All DRM-free too, with the odd Steam/Desura key for good measure. So… new ownership with the same ol’ lovely Bundle In A Box style, as far as content goes. Groovy? Groovy.
