We haven’t mentioned before now, but the current Humble Weekly Sale is a clutch of Cliffski’s Positech games, which have already netted over $100k, with a day and a half to go. Beers are on Cliffski! (Just don’t mention piracy.) And now a new fortnight-long Humble Bundle proper has launched, this time showcasing the products of the decidedly not indie Deep Silver. Four of their games (including Saints Row 3!) for pay what you want, two more for over the average, and the rather average Dead Island Riptide if you throw in $25.
I’m sure people will share their feelings about international publishers taking up spaces on the Humble rota, especially when there are no Mac or Linux versions, in the comments below. But I imagine everyone will also be tempted to throw in a buck to pick up Saints Row: The Third, Saints Row 2, Risen 2: Dark Waters and Sacred 2 Gold. Put in $5 (at the moment) and you’ll also get all the Saints Row 3 DLC (some of which is worth having), and Dead Island’s GOTY Edition. And as I mentioned, $25 will get you Dead Island: Riptide, although since you’d already get the far superior Dead Island for a fifth of the price, I wouldn’t bother.
It’s been running for less than a day, and already an utterly extraordinary $765k has been made.
It’s unquestionably a great bundle. Of course, Deep Silver are also the publisher who refuses to respond to us whenever we ask about their Dead Island torso bullshit.
