Anyone have Jonny Cappuccino's email? I might as well shoot him an email directly considering that support hasn't been responding.

So I guess they've added a new goal. It's now Goal 6, and the former Goal 6 has been bumped to Goal 7.

Anyway, the new Goal 6 is this:

If we reach $50k, then for the first 24hrs of Build a Bundle 2, we’ll discount game and bundle prices by 40%! BAB2 launches next week.

It's a great bonus, but I don't think we'll meet the goal. We're getting around 100 sales per hour.

Build a bundle! Yeah!!!! If they could restrict the discount to only people who bought 3 I think that would drive sales, but sounds too complicated.

I welcome another "build-a-bundle", but doesn't it seem odd that it appears that it's gonna run during the expected run time for the Steam Sale? Isn't it gonna be overshadowed by steam sale fervor?

Also, if you're a dev/publisher, aren't you looking at a situation where people will essentially be able to buy your game for a buck? Wouldn't you rather only have that option available to people after the Summer Sale ends? After a certain number of people have bought your game for more than a buck?

I guess that depends on the games in the bundle. If it's a bunch of games like Caster (which is only $5 and goes on sale during the big sales for about a buck), then I guess it doesn't really matter.

Maybe I'm the only one, but ever since bundles took off, I can't say I've given a damn about Steam sales.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Interesting.

I'd say 90% of the games I play are from indie bundles. I hadn't thought about that until just now.

yeah, I was just thinking this the other day... I'm at the point of I'll take free crap Valve throws my way but my backlog of indie games has grown quite large. I'll probably just do the achievement stuff from all the games I've already got and just wait for the next bundle.

Try private chatting with Jonny Cappuccino (when he's available in the chat on their site). He said that they haven't been getting very many support emails, so I'm guessing most of the emails are getting blocked or filtered. If you chat directly with Jonny you can provide him with your account info which should speed up the process.

I got my gift URL emailed to me on the 5th, but it's probably because I gave Christian (an admin) my account info. I doubt they received the emails I sent to them. It's a huge mess, Groupees need to sort out the bugs with their site and email before they decide to do anything like this again.

Same here. Emailed them 3 days ago and haven't heard anything back. Their support is awful.

Per twitter, it appears that their "Customer Service" is one guy, and he has been in the hospital.

OK, I just checked over on Groupies site to see if there was anything new. Apparently they had originally wanted to launch the Build-A-Bundle2 either yesterday, or today. But obviously it wasn't yesterday, and it won't be today either. According to Jonny Cappuccino, the delay is due to somebody being a bit slow to give them some keys. He hopes to get the bundle up within a week. So I guess it could be any day now. But it wont be today.

So far, confirmed games that will be in the BAB2:
Tiny Bang Story
Alien Breed Impact
Syberia 2
Iron Grip: Warlord (just revealed)

Supposedly they're using the delay in getting this bundle up and running to try and acquire some more games to choose from. JC said that it might be as many as 12.

Oh yeah, one more thing. Even though we didn't hit the $50,000 mark, they're still apparently gonna offer a discount over the first 24 hours. It wont be 40%, but JC said something about being able to maybe buy 3 games for $2. I guess they're regularly gonna be $1 a game.

You forgot Hammerfight, that was also confirmed.

They were, Jonny confirmed it in the chat the other day. I'm disappointed that it'll be in BaB2 :cry:

Well on the upside, it's a Build-A-Bundle, so none of us will be forced to buy it.

I'm guessing that you already own it because of HB3, right? That's were I got it from. I still haven't tried it yet, so I have no idea if it's any good. All I know is that I already own it so it's one game that I can safely skip.

Yeah, I got it from HB3. It's nice that we can skip it. Someone on SPUF said that there are 7 out of 9 games that havent been in bundles before.. if that's true, we only know of one that has been in a bundle (Hammerfight). The other hasnt been announced. I personally never saw the 7 out of 9 thing stated by the Groupees staff though, so I don't know how accurate that info is.

In for Syberia 2 at least. If the others are repeats I'll just pick and choose 2 more that friends might like.

Oh, I thought it said Tiny Big! That would be a good one. Tiny Bang Story and Syberia 2 have my interest. Didn't a bundle just have Syberia 1 in it?

Yes so it's good timing on Syberia 2. Those two Syberia games have never dipped below 50% on Steam so getting either of them plus other games for $4 or so is a decent deal.

If you haven't received it by now, you won't receive it without nagging them.
