April 5 th, 2013 –  The Catnip Bundle, the latest offering from Bundle Stars, is a generous serving of 10 instantly downloadable PC games, available for the purrfect price of “pay what you want”.

The Catnip Bundle proudly presents  Pushcat, an arcade game from indie studio Zut Games that harks back to the golden age of videogames, with crisp, multi-coloured pixel art and retro music. Gamers can purchase the DRM-free version as part of the bundle, and they will also receive Steam keys free of charge if Pushcat passes Steam’s Greenlight process for indie games.

The additional 9 titles, which vary from addictive puzzles to first-person shooters and thrilling adventures, are all redeemable on Steam®, giving gamers an intoxicating mix of indie titles.

The bundle is the sixth offering from Bundle Stars, the home of feel-good gaming. Gamers can choose to reward game developers and support their future projects as they wish with the “pay what you want” mechanic. Five per cent of Bundle Stars’ profits also go to the charity SpecialEffect, which helps children and adults with severe disabilities to play computer games and enjoy a better quality of life.

The games in this bundle are worth around over £60 when bought separately. All the games are Windows-compatible, while  Chains and  Pushcat are Mac-compatible, too.

Paying any amount above £1 (around $1) will get you:

Pushcat (Windows/Mac/DRM-free/Desura) is an arcade game that lets you get digging as the eponymous Pushcat, a purple cat who just loves silver coins - which he gets by combining gems of the same colour. This game harks back to the golden age of videogames with crisp pixel art and retro music.

Metal Drift (Windows/Steam) from indie developer Black Jacket Studios is a vehicular sport combat game set in an alternate future. Command a high-powered hover tank from the cockpit and engage in intense tank-on-tank team combat in a futuristic sports arena.
