Yes they ran out a day or two ago. They will refill and allocate to those who do not have them before end of the deal (hopefully).

Looks like they closed the bundle with about 10 hours left on their countdown... ugh! I was going to buy it tonight... oh well.

Thank goodness I didn't wait until the last minute to buy like I've done with several of their recent bundles. I was thinking about picking up a second copy of the $1 tier so I could get some cheap games for my secondary account, but I'll live without that.

Kinda weird that they'd just do that out of the blue like that. Was there any announcements before hand?

I think they posted something on Twitter about it coming to an end soon, but I don't follow them there. They also didn't adjust the countdown. I'm guessing that they might have run out of keys at 25k bundles, but at least announce that on the website, if that's the case! Way to communicate with potential customers, guys...

They probably announced it in their chat. Groupees is weird like that where they disseminate most of their important info through a chat room on their page.

It's really irksome because it's quite difficult to scroll back through the jibber jabber and find the important stuff but Groupees has this fascination with having direct live contact with a very small subset of their customers rather than actually posting the info somewhere easy to find for everyone else. :-P

Wish I would have known about the early ending of the sale. I forgot about this for days until this afternoon since I made a mental note it was ending tonight.

I only really wanted The Cat Lady and maybe Edna & Harvey, though.

Balls. I was keeping track of the time left by the countdown and was going to get it when I got home today. Well, I guess that's what I get for not following them on twitter or searching through their chat. Silly me.

I guess it's off to the dark pit of the Steam Trading Thread to wade through the many, many posts of "Have: Paypal, Want: Skyrim $5" in order to find some leftover keys from this bundle.

So that was a last minute addition? It wasn't there last night when I went to bed. How the hell did they run out of keys for it so fast but they had keys for everything else that has been up for weeks 1-2 weeks?

Have they said if they are going to give keys to those who didn't get one? Because I don't have one in my account.

*Edit: I guess there is some weird shenanigans going on with that game because some people in the Groupees chat said they got Steam keys for it even though it hasn't been Greenlit and isn't on Steam yet.

Also something similar was mentioned on the greenlight page for Galactic Arms Race.

Wait, how did you give steam keys away on Steamgifts if it wasn't greenlit....

I won a key for GAR on Steamgifts about a week ago when the developer gave away something like 10k keys. I can confirm that it's on Steam, but there's no store page for it, so you can't actually buy it yet.

I can't believe that's the thing that made them take the bundle down early, ignoring their own countdown. I'd gladly still buy the bundle without that game. I want to give them money, and they don't want to take it!

I bought the bundle fairly early (a day or two in afaik), and I don't have a key (or even a download) under the GAR entry on my purchase page. :hot:

Somebody in chat said it's 'coming soon' but it wasn't one of the slugs so I am not taking that as an official word yet.

I really only bought the bundle for the Cat Lady, Two Worlds II, and Eschalon Book 2, so if you're looking for some of the other keys, shoot me a PM.

Same, i bought it day 1, seems if you dont redeem the key as soon as it is available, it doesnt matter what order you purchased....

Has this been confirmed somewhere? Or is it just speculation?

Because I can't seem to find any concrete info as to why they ended the bundle early.

I couldn't find anything official but the timing of this game being added and then the bundle abruptly ending right after would seem to suggest it.

I scrolled through their damned chat a bit and found some other users saying it was due to GAR but I didn't feel like scrolling all night through it to see if I can find some official word from Jonny or the slugs, if there even was any. If someone else wants to try they are welcome to. :-P

Clearly there is one clear reason: to remind sinners during Lent that Sloth is one of the Seven Deadlys. :lol:

Just speculation. I don't think there was any info about it about it on the chat. All I could find about it is Shifty's last words:

We want to thank everyone for their wonderful support of the Be Mine Anniversary Bundle. As a thank you we added an extra bonus game for everyone who bought the bundle. This is also your last chance to get your hands on it so act fast. Ignore the counter, this sale is about to end.


Ending it early because they ran out of GAR keys makes no sense to me, they could just reorder keys and populate accounts with them later. If there were issues with the game.. they could just pull the game from the bundle. It was a last minute gift to everyone that bought the bundle, not an incentive to buy it..

Shifty Slug has shown up. He confirmed that they had to end the bundle early because they only had 25k copies of some of the keys.

haha yeah cause people read all the things we write correct


That's his response to questions as to why they didn't let people know that it was gonna end early. Unbelievable.

And of course, they've got a couple of groupees groupies defending them.

Instead of setting a time limit they could set number of bundles limit. Because of that I have missed a quite great bundle :(

Seriously? Wow... that's a bit unprofessional. Hopefully the Groupees people learn a lesson about communication from this. It's perfectly reasonable to stop selling the bundle because keys run out, but the right thing to do would have been to change the countdown clock and/or to make a note of this on the bundle page, not to leave potential customers in the dark and frustrated because they felt misled.
