Weird, the flagship game is a free game with ads lol...
Plus they don't have an installer like humblebundle does, and even that is a bit of a pain to use. I suppose we'd have to download apks and install manually... gonna pass.

Easy for me to say, last time I played an Android game was last year... and I quickly switches to the steam version.

Dumb question... how do you know the games contained in these bundle pre-orders? There's no list displayed

SOmetimes there are hints in the background images used.
Sometimes hints are given in chat

Yeah, sometimes it's just a matter of doing a Google image search on the bundle's banner.

The REALLY fun one, is Johnny's "renditions" of games for Be Mine bundles.

Hadn't been on Groupees since my post above... Got lucky I guess ;)
PS: I also recently realized I'd never downloaded a single album from groupees since the second Synthwave (my very first). That's a lot of to-be-downloaded stuff... I sure hope Groupees never pulls an IndieGameStand and allows us to download everything we're missing if they ever decide to call it quits...

Groupees is kind of dead right now. I missed a pre-order for Vocallective and for a big chip tune bundle and there's a big Dynamite comics bundle right now. But aside from that, not much going on.

Coincidentally, I visited Groupees earlier today for the first time since my post above (that is, 3 weeks), and was surprised that it still had a ton of stupid self-teaching video bundles (don't they ever expire??!), a couple of comic bundles, and nothing else... I mean, it's like they were bought by a video publisher, lol, it's even worse than the HB acquisition of IGN to me...[1]
And no new greenlit games either, although I only have a small portion of all of the Greenlight bundles they released. I think I can put those to rest now... It's unlikely we'll get new games now. Heck, I don't know if Groupees is still alive.

(Gosh, maybe I should go & download them all my albums now...)
 1. Seriously, IGN... One game bundle in three weeks?! Might as well call them the "Humble Nearly Monthly"...

Downloaded Synthwave 3 through 10 (I don't have the first one, and the second one I already downloaded but can't remember where), and apart from it taking it ages (really, no "download this whole bundle" links? Torrent not working?!?! Why provide them at all?), and there being a rebundle of "Cadence" in bundle 7 (it was already in bundle 4...), it went relatively smoothly.
For the curious, I downloaded the 320kbps MP3 versions only, and it *still* took 9GB of disk space. Wow...

I have downloaded all the things I really care about (my royalty free music, especially my Future 80s big bundle.) But yeah, good point about Humble Bundle, too. Hope the new year brings good things.

Ahah, don't get me started about HB... Tuesday they didn't have a bundle up at the usual time. So I thought, okay they're really getting away from weekly bundles and focusing on monthly ones now... And then the next day I see they added a new bundle the prior day -- no idea at what time, though, but what matters is that due to the inability to determine the proper bundle arrival time, it's also impossible to manipulate the BTA price & freeze it to something acceptable. Not a biggie in this case because it's a "take it all or leave it all" kind of bundle, but the next bundle might be a problem...

Ahhh, if only we had frigging notifications for them. Like, notifications that don't take hours to get sent.

YEP I noticed that too. HA. Tuesday I went looking for a bundle at the right time. NOPE. And then randomly... there's a bundle.

Bundle may have possibly launched Wednesday morning, which is the earliest I can find about it... (SG)
I couldn't possibly believe™ HB had a last minute issue with one of the bundled games, given they're all from the same publisher and they had 3 weeks to build it.
