There are so many bundles.  There have been countless bundles.  Many that don't come with steam key codes, and a few that do.  And a lot of gamers look for bundles that include the steam keys, because a majority of them have steam and prefer to keep their games all in one area.  And steam is a good updater, much better than having to go look for it on your own and keep up to date with every one of the games you play or own...  Here are some that are out now, or will be released with in the next two weeks, that will include steam keys!


Firstly, as I've posted before, the humble bundle is out now!  It is for the android, pc, linux, and mac!  Comes with steam keys for three (or four games if you payed more than average!) and soundtracks for each game.  As a refresher the games are as follows: Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Osmos, Edge, and (above average) World of Goo.  You can purchase here


Next, we have the indie gala!  I've never mentioned this one when it first came out, but... here's the second one!  With the option to get the first one along with it.  Now this bundle is a bit confusing.  At least, it sort of is for me.  But one thing that's cool about it, is that it comes with music!  The first bundle came with some music by The Flashbulb, whom I enjoy.  This bundle, like HIB, supports charity.  The two charities they support are Child's Play and Save the Children.

The games that are available here are:

The Carebear Bundle
If you pay anywhere between 1$ and 5.50$ you get:
  • Critical Mass
  • Fortix 2
  • Bunch of Heroes
You also get the following albums: Skitter EP, Comfort, and Beautiful EP.

The Big Saver Bundle
If you pay anywhere between 5.51$ and 9.63$ you get:
  • Critical Mass
  • Fortix 2
  • Bunch of Heroes
  • Roboblitz
  • Greed corp
You also get the following albums:  Skitter EP, Comfort, Beautiful EP, Square, Thank You, and Fit the Paradigm.

The Epic Gala Bundle
If you pay 9.64$ or more, you get 11 games and 7 albums.  6 of the games are from the first Gala Bundle, and the eleven games are as follows:
  • Critical Mass
  • Fortix 2
  • Bunch of Heroes
  • Roboblitz
  • Greed corp
  • Zombie Shooter
  • Zombie Shooter 2
  • Your doodles are bugged
  • InMomentum
  • Hacker Evolution: Duality
  • Hacker Evolution: Untold
The albums are:  Skitter EP, Comfort, Beautiful EP, Square, Thank You, Fit the Paradigm, and Doodads.

You may also gift this bundle to friends, getting not only a discount for purchasing more at one time, but also receiving bonus content!  This bundle is ending soon, so pick up as soon as you can if you're interested!


Once again, we see the face of Indie Royale.  They've recently finished their bundle for serious sam, which I didn't make a post on.  However, they're having the valentines bundle next:

You will be able to preorder this bundle soon enough, but as of now... there's not much information on it.  That I know of at least.  I'll update it once I learn more and inform those who may wish to pre-order that it is available for pre-order..

EDIT:  More info and is now available for preorder @ 3.99$!

Quote
You can now blind pre-order Indie Royale's Valentine's Bundle at a recommended €/£/$10 or €/£/$5 USD contribution, and a minimum of $3.99 USD.

The games offered this time include a fantastical first-person action-adventure game (Steam for PC), an IGF-nominated puzzle adventure title (Steam for PC and Mac, Desura for PC and Linux, DRM-free PC, Mac and Linux download), a 'scorching' single and multiplayer arcade-strategy game (Steam for PC and Mac), and a world premiere on PC for a pair of retro RPG-defense games (Desura for PC, DRM-free PC download).

Those who optionally pre-order now will get game access as soon as the bundle launches, lock in the lowest price, and receive as a bonus One Life Left's eclectic 'Music To Play Games By Too' compilation, available for the first time ever digitally (this bonus is also available to those who pay more than the minimum price during the bundle.)

The Valentine's Bundle will launch fully later this week at $3.99 USD and up - watch our Twitter feed or Facebook page for immediate notice at launch time.


EDIT:
The bundles is now live!  Here are the games that you get with it:

  • Zeno Clash for: steam (pc)
  • Hoard for: steam (pc and mac) *BONUS* Includes keys for two DLC packs.
  • Lume for: windows, mac, linux, desura, steam (pc and mac)
  • Soulcaster for: windows, desura
  • BONUS: Soulcaster II for: windows, desura

It is currently priced at 4,55!



Here we have another bundle that includes music!  This one is released by yawma.net, who has also released "groupees" (bundles with games and music) in the past.   Although, none of those included steam keys (at least not that I know of..).  This one, as well, isn't going to be released until valentines!  What exactly comes with this bundle, I'm not for sure.  However, I do know that you get the following games:
  • Wasteland Angel
  • Sideways New York
  • Xotic
  • BEEP
  • The Ball

This bundle seems like it'll be one that will be worth picking up!  It is "PWYW" but so long as you pay 1$ minimum.  It apparently comes with some other incentives as well, and 20% goes to Child's Play!




_______________________________________________



As I'm sure some may have noticed, there is a minimum now of 1.00 for all the bundles (although indie royale runs differently, so this doesn't apply to it).  This is because of all the coal farmers.. But, it can be a good thing they have kept it.  Each bundle comes with a number of games, and most are for charity... Should be willing to pay at least a dollar!

I'll update for the last two bundles when they're released.

groupees one looks like the best one as of yet.  Though indie royale seems like it may be worth picking up as well.. we'll seeeee.

Anyway, updated about indie royale, they released some information and also have pre-order now available.  If you pre-order you also get some music (as they've done before).  They have a suggested price of 5, but minimum is 3.99....
Which is apparently the start price of the bundles... I could have sworn the started out at 1.99... then went to 2.99.... and now? 3.99.... Maybe I have poor memory, or maybe they're increasing the price slowly...  Which, I suppose is fine, especially for them if people still buy.


EDIT:

uhh apparently, according to their twitter, 3.99 is the lowest price... Whether they mean just as pre-order or actually... I'm not completely sure.  I'm thinking they mean actually, mainly because they keep saying "Lock in the lowest price" and.. well if that's true then... a bit annoying.  :|

EDIT:

Trying to see if I can figure out what games they're talking about...

I'm thinking scorching arcade-strategy game is hoard.
Maybe penumbra for adventure-puzzle igf nominated game... (but no linux on desura..) maybe amnesia?  I think it was igf nominated as well, and has linux on desura.  I'm going to go with Amnesia I think..
I have no idea for the world premiere.
First person one idk...  was looking around and people are thinking zeno clash, which I could see.  I wasn't (and still am not) really sure at all!
I dunno I'm probably way off on all of these anyway..  They did say:
Quote
Nope, that's correct - we want to give those who pre-order an advantage, and this bundle has a _lot_ of value in it.

we'll see though.

The be mine one is out now!  However.... they're relaunching it tomorrow because it just now got put on... "hold" in a sense, because they are boosting their capacity! 

They also have another bundle (that will be back) but doesn't have games that I know of!  Just in case anyone is interested in music.  There's also a game music bundle out there.  I'd pick it up but don't really have the money (and I have 2 or three of the albums in the basic bundle) , but it's nice for anyone who's enjoys music from games. http://www.gamemusicbundle.com/
