Too Humble To Handle: The Humble Jumbo Bundle

By Nathan Grayson on December 4th, 2013.

Are you tired of sales? Did Black Friday and Cyborg Monday beat your wallet to a penniless pulp? Well, TOO BAD. Games will continue going on sale from now until the end of time, and somewhere in between, you will cast off your mortal coil poor and probably alone. I apologize. That was too much. Sales just get me super amped up about mortality, is all. Anyway, the Humble Jumbo Bundle is composed of six games and tons of DLC. Standouts include Natural Selection 2, Sanctum 2, and Orcs Must Die! 2. Details below.

Humble Bundle Humbly Offers Its Own Autumn Sale

By Nathan Grayson on November 28th, 2013.

Launching your own sale during the same period as Valve is kind of like showing off your sparkly new canoe at a rocket-yacht convention. You will inevitably be overshadowed. But this is the Grand Season of Sales, so everybody and their rocket-yacht’s on-board AI programmed to speak just like Christopher Walken is doing it. That includes Humble Bundle, whose newly launched storefront has put a treasure trove of indies up for respectably slashed prices. Standouts include Kentucky Route Zero, Gone Home, the Crusader Kings II Collection, and Anodyne.

Picking Up Steam: Humble Launches Full Storefront

By Nathan Grayson on November 11th, 2013.

Well, this all feels a bit inevitable, doesn’t it? After oodles, kaboodles, and toaster strudels of bundles – not to mention “store” functionality utilized by many indie developers – Humble Bundle has finally launched a full-blown storefront, ala Steam or GOG. It’s not pay-what-you want, but ten percent of every sale goes straight to charity. Also, excellent deals are the order of the day, with the likes of Don’t Starve, Gunpoint, Natural Selection II, Prison Architect, Euro Truck Sim 2, and more undergoing ritualistic price tag severings in celebration.

Wayne Good Deals: Latest Humble Bundle Is Positively Batty

By Nathan Grayson on November 5th, 2013.

Next in the Humble Bundle, that is!

Bruce Wayne, billion dollar playboy who was recently declared Least Likely Man On Earth To Be Batman (Of The Year) by Time magazine, is at it again. He’s teamed with a gaming storefront known as the Humble Bundle to sell games largely focused on Batman for no specific reason. The proceeds of a pay-what-you-want bundle that includes that likes of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City will go toward a sprawling tunnel-based weapons facility beneath Gotham charities and game developers.

Humble Bundle With Android 7 Includes Bard’s Tale, Anodyne

By Nathan Grayson on October 16th, 2013.

There are so many Humble Bundles now! Why, back in my day, we had to wait 1417 years (uphill, in the snow, beset on all sides by lackluster deals and also wolverines) for fresh bowls of piping hot generosity, and we… well, I mean, we liked it, yeah, but honestly? We’re talking about great games on the cheap for good causes. So far, more has largely proven to be better. I mean, I haven’t really bought many of the Humble Weeklies, but I definitely appreciate that they exist. Really, my main issue is one of inevitability: the more games get bundled, the higher the likelihood is that I already own them. Case in point: most of Humble Bundle With Android 7.

Humble Indie Bundle 9 Expands, And In Style

By John Walker on September 18th, 2013.

The Humble Indie Bundle 9 has, as you would have expected, updated. And I feel safe in saying it’s now likely the best bundle there’s ever been. Before you could pick up Trine 2, Mark Of The Ninja Eets Munchies Beta, Brutal Legend, FTL and FEZ for just a few coins. It was already pretty astonishing. A week in, and over half a million sales later, it’s now added four new games, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, A Virus Named TOM, Bastion, and LIMBO. Good heavens.

Humble Indie Bundle 9 Is Go(od)

By John Walker on September 11th, 2013.

It’s not Android games, nor soundtracks, nor books about kettles. The new Humble Bundle is the original, the Humble Indie Bundle 9. And for a ninth time in a row, it’s a corker. With names like Mark Of The Ninja, FTL: Faster Than Light, and FEZ, you can see the dollar signs spinning already.

By Ben Barrett on August 29th, 2013.

Sound the alarm and lock up your wallets, those gents and gentesses at Humble Bundles are roving for your cash once more. After the stratospheric success of the Humble Origin Bundle, you’d think they’d calm down a bit. But no, their ever hungering need to supply you with cheap, brilliant games has flared once more. Paradox are up for it this time, with a selection of their titles available for a dollar an up, two more at six and every game they’ve ever published (excepting Europa Universalis 4 and DLC) for $125. Value. More details and what RPS thought of the various games after the cut.

Humble Origin Raising Millions, Adds Two More Games

By John Walker on August 22nd, 2013.

The Humble Origin Bundle is getting bigger. At the very moment you’re reading this, their team of slave-children are adding two more games into the mix, and they’re classics. Going into the record-breaking bundle are Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 – Uprising, and – coo – Populous. And at this point, Humble Bundle have revealed that since they began, they’ve raised a total of over $20m for charities in just over two years.

Beyond Good And EAvil: The Humble Origin Bundle

By Nathan Grayson on August 15th, 2013.

I can't turn back now. EA asked me to deliver medicine to all the world's orphans, and deliver medicine I will!

THE WORLD HAS GONE CRAZY. First Activision took some progressive (well, by Activision standards, anyway) steps with Call of Duty, and now EA’s teamed up with Humble Bundle to host a bonkers sale whose proceeds go entirely to charity. It consists of eight titans of electronic artistry (or whatever EA’s “A” actually represents these days) both past and present, which by the mega-publisher’s count comes out to a $215 value. The bundle is, as ever, pay-what-you-want, but this time around highlights include the likes of Mirror’s Edge, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Battlefield 3, and, er, Medal of Honor. Well, they can’t all be winners. Also, some require Origin. But still: ultra-cheap games for some really great causes! It might be EA, but today I must set aside my torchfork and don my giant rubber applauding hand.

Latest Humble Bundles Include Deep Silver & Positech

By John Walker on July 31st, 2013.

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.

Interview: Jeff Vogel On Bundles, Graphics And Pessimism

By John Walker on July 17th, 2013.

Jeff Vogel is the man behind Spiderweb Software, the studio that recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary of creating rich, deep RPGs. As a week-long Humble sale draws to a close tomorrow, we dragged Jeff away from writing content for Avadon 2 to talk about the amazing success of the sale and how it will put his kids through college, the changing nature of selling indie games over the years, and how feedback affects the RPGs he creates. You might also be surprised to learn whether he’d opt for flashier graphics if he could.
