Rock Bottom: Groupees Bundle Includes La Mulana

By Adam Smith on December 21st, 2012.

The new Groupees bundle includes loads of games but I haven’t even heard of most of them. It’s a ‘pay what you want’ deal, although the minimum price rises as you add more games from the selection.

Those can be yours for $1, but spend at least $4 and you’ll get more, as detailed below.
