The eighth Humble Bundle boasts an extraordinary line-up of recent indie royalty. Proteus, Thomas Was Alone, Hotline Miami, Capsized, Awesomenauts, Dear Esther and Little Inferno, plus their soundtracks. It seemed like the best one yet. So naturally they’ve added another four games.
It now also contains the flawed but often lovely Tiny & Big In Grandpa’s Leftovers, super-tough puzzle game English Country Tune, side-scrolling wolf-rider Intrusion 2, and excellent RTS Oil Rush. And their soundtracks. All four, along with Hotline Miami, are in the “pay more than” category, at $5.61 at the time of writing. A whopping £3.75 for ten games.
The bundle has already sold an incredible 365,000 copies, making a total of over $2m in just over a week. Remarkable numbers, although I note the Bronies have failed to outdo Notch in the Top Contributors column this time. That’s always a fun battle to watch, but they’re a no-show for this one, meaning Notch has only had to throw in $5k to keep the top spot. Boo.
