BundleCult – Summer Mayhem Bundle

BundleCult has launched their new game bundle pack, the Summer Mayhem Bundle, for Mac, Linux and PC. is not entirely honest and may be a complete scam.

CuveGames, makers of Quest Run, state on Twitter that they did not make any agreements to be involved in BundleCult’s latest offering, and not only that: they did not even have any communication with the team either.

As a soldier you will use various vehicles and defend vital bases on Earth against the invaders’ forces.  In the second one you will become a soldier of the alien species and protect your home world from the forces of the Human armada.

Lightfish – a highly addictive arcade game, where the user controls a small fish who lives in the abyssal deeps of the ocean… surrounded by deadly creatures. His objective is to destroy all the monsters who inhabit those dangerous zones by drawing lines onto unexplored territory. However, any enemy who manages to touch the Lightfish will kill him instantly!

Danger waits at every turn as you investigate the chilling mystery that threatens your homeland.

Gare Sapphire Mechs – a polished top down action shooter set in a digital like world with upgradable mechs.  Vitris-47 has been the central stage of many conflicts over the ages.  The Idalin empire rules over the planet with an ironhand and war is always present.  On the other side, there’s the resistance, trying to retake the planet to its former glory and you are part of it.

Orborun – a 3D action skill run & roll game!  Control your Orbot to collect the goods, avoid the obstacles and escape the hazardous Orbo-world.  Complete levels on perfect run to get more bonus.  More than 100 levels, local co-op multiplayer, feeling of speed and adrenaline, twisted levels in haste/puzzle and hazard shaped different worlds and cool Orbot skins makes this game fun to play for ages!

Depth Hunter : Deep Dive – offers 25 exciting missions in 3 huge locations around the world.  Players will hunt different fish species and face the difficulties of breath-holding spearfishing, an ancient fishing method.  Players will also have to find treasures and get the possibility to take underwater photos to capture the beauty of the simulated, detailed and lively underwater worlds they’re exploring also in an exploration mode.

and CuveGames’ Quest Run – a challenging, fast-paced tactical game with rogue-like elements, taking you to battle in various themed dungeons.  Progress as far as you can with your chosen heroes, die in agony and try again!  Apply new strategies, try new heroes, choose new perils and die anyway!  Untimely, premature deaths await!

BundleCult claimed to have have partnered with Strange Loop Games to offer free license keys for Vessel and Shattered Haven when you share the bundle offer with friends.

Looks like that wasn’t quite true either..

Leaving the info.. check out the games as they look awesome, but please buy them from elsewhere!

Vessel: Living liquid machines have overrun this world of unstoppable progress, and it is the role of their inventor, Arkwright, to stop the chaos they are causing.  Vessel is a game about a man with the power to bring ordinary matter to life, and all the consequences that ensue.

Vessel

Shattered Haven: an environmental puzzle game about family, grit and survival.  Grays roam the land, largely in the absence of human interference.  These aren’t your typical Zed – theirs is a very different sort of apocalypse.  Animals spontaneously transform into twisted, violent beings.  The earth decays, collapsing into a network of abysses.  The wilderness thickens.

Link to purchase removed.  Buyer most certainly beware!

    Don’t buy the Bundlecult stuff. The guy is a scammer.

    See here: http://www.corecode.at/macbundler/index.html

    Or do your own search and you’ll see the negative posts about devs not being paid and missing keys.

      Thanks for the heads up. I’ll take a look around and see what I can find.

      So far it looks like the BundleCult owner is claiming CuveGames made an agreement with him about keys for QuestRun under a previous business name, and while he admits he’d not be too happy in that situation, he’s not interested in respecting the developer.
      Strange Loop Games also say they did not partner with BundleCult to give away Vessel and Shattered Haven.

      I’ll not delete this post as yet – any other devs burnt by this bundle, feel free to message and I’ll shout out your new game too.
