Bundle Stars’ latest bundle is a shock to the system

system shock 2 (22)
Look at you, hacker: a pathetic creature of meat and bone, panting and sweating as you run through my corridors. How can you challenge a perfect, immortal machine?

I don’t think we’ve written about a games bundle for quite some time, but the latest Bundle Stars offer is a bit of a good’un.

The Aftershock Bundle, as it’s named, is offering you eight games for the princely sum of €2.59. No, I don’t know why it’s giving me the price in Euros either, but there you are. According to current exchange rates that’s around $3.52 USD or £2.07 GBP.

The Big Thing you get for your £2 is undoubtedly System Shock 2, a beautifully designed first-person horror/shooter/RPG/survival thing, in space. It’s so good we interviewed a few of the chaps who worked on it some time ago, and spent a long time discussing peculiarities of the design. This bundle is actually cheaper than buying the game stand-alone on GOG or Steam right now, even with their sales.

Of course, that’s not all. You also get UFO: Aftershock and UFO: Aftermath, a pair of slightly rubbish XCOM-alikes. You get Wizardry 6, Wizardry 7, and Wizardry 8, a trio of bloody hard old-school RPGs. You get fantasy turn-based strategy thing Ascension to the Throne, which I’ve never heard of before. And you also get Harvester, one of the creepiest, weirdest, goriest, and most insane point-and-click adventures ever made.

All of the games activate on Steam. You can purchase the bundle on the Bundle Stars website now.

He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
