April 10 th, 2013 – Bundle Star s will today reveal classic adventure game Scratches – Director’s Cut as a bonus mystery title in its latest game bundle, Catnip.

Bundle Stars, which is currently offering three cut-price bundles on its website, has kept hidden the first of its mystery titles to gamers until today.

Scratches – Director’s Cut, a mystery and horror adventure game, was named ‘Game of the Year’ by JustAdventure.com when it was released. Widely regarded as one of the best horror adventure games ever made, Scratches became a cult hit, selling over 250,000 copies.

Bundle Stars are giving gamers the opportunity to get their hands on the adventure classic ahead of the launch of a new game from Scratches’ lead developer, Agustín Cordes, later this year. Cordes raised over $119,000 in a recent Kickstarter project he created for Asylum, an upcoming psychological horror video game, demonstrating the game’s loyal fanbase.

Gamers who haven’t yet bought the bundle can still get access to Scratches – Director’s Cut, along with 9 other great downloadable PC games, as part of the Catnip Bundle now.

The Catnip Bundle, available for a limited time only from www.bundlestars.com, supports independent game developers, raises funds for charity and saves gamers over 90% off the combined retail price. One further mystery title will be revealed soon.
