The competition for your hard-earned cash is hotting up as we approach the holiday season here in the UK, and NVIDIA are complementing their existing GeForce GPU game bundles with one for new owners of their mainstream Pascal-based GeForce GTX GPUs. The GeForce GTX Indie Bundle offers the choice of one of three Indie titles for new purchases of a GTX 1050, GTX 1050 TI or GTX 1060 GPU (from participating retailers), getting you gaming from the word go or just trying something outside your comfort zone.

NVIDIA's GTX 1050 and 1060-class GPUs are their best value models, intended for entry-level and mainstream gaming at 1080p. Furthermore, the GTX 1060 is NVIDIA's entry-point into the world of VR Gaming, replacing the GTX 970 in many recommended specification lists. The choice of games - from studios Finish Line Games, Survios and 34BigThings - reflect that.

Maize by Finish Line Games - Described as a first-person adventure game, Maize follows what happens when two scientists misinterpret a memo from the U.S. Government and create sentient corn. And that last sentence is pretty much the least ridiculous thing about the game.

Redout by 34BigThings - Fast-paced and unforgiving, Redout is a modern treatment of the principles embodied in classic racing titles such as F-Zero, WipeOut and Rollcage. Speed and verticality in track design are key to this uncompromising racing game.

Raw Data by Survios Raw Data is one of those rare titles built from the ground up for Virtual Reality, rather than retrofitted to VR from a 2D base. Featuring action combat gameplay, intuitive controls, challenging enemies, and sci-fi atmosphere, the game plays out as a 'technothriller' which you can experience with friends.


This trio of titles encompass a wide range of genres, offering something for almost everyone rather than a 'one-size fits all' bundle. We should note though that Raw Data, as a VR title, both requires an HTC VIVE carries the recommendation of a GTX 1060 due to the requirements of the platform.

A wide variety of outlets in the UK are participating in this offer, and both standalone purchases of a card as well as system builds qualify. Redemption is performed by entering a voucher code at redeem.geforce.com and requires a valid Steam account. For more information visit the GeForce GTX Bundle landing page.
