Humble Jumbo Bundle 2 Now More Jumbo, Adds 3 Games

By Graham Smith on August 27th, 2014.

Last week we wrote about the Humble Jumbo Bundle 2, because it was the best haul of games we’d seen in a Humble Bundle in a little while. Now that bundle has expanded as planned, and the three new games added are all good too. Pay more than the average of $6.62/£4 and you’ll now receive Legend of Grimrock, PixelJunk Eden and Orcs Must Die! 2.

This on top of a bundle which already included Galactic Civilizations 2, Terraria, Crusader Kings 2 and more.

Humble Jumbo Bundle 2 Is Great: GalCiv 2, CK2, Terraria…

By Ben Barrett on August 21st, 2014.

Who will become the King of Fabulous (13)?

Humble Bundle are always going to be of varying quality – sometimes including only a single quality game with some bonuses, sometimes of no interest whatsoever – but the latest, titled Jumbo Bundle 2, is quite the bargain.

For the low, low price of whatever-the-hell-you’d-like you’ll get space 4X Galactic Civilizations II with its expansions, side-scrolling undead violence-applier Deadlight and isometric action RPG The Incredible Adventures of Ven Helsing. Beat the average price however ($6.32 at the time of writing) and you’ll also receive 2D survival exploration Terraria, combo-heavy high-skill fighting game King of Fighters XIII and the story-spawning strategy-RPG Crusader Kings 2.

Thieves, Cyborgs & Hitmen: The Humble Square Enix Bundle

By Alice O'Connor on July 23rd, 2014.

This bundle does not include Killing Floor.

$15 is a very fair price for Deus Ex, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut, Just Cause 2, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and Kane & Lynch 2, if you don’t already own them. It’s still not bad even if you do have some. That you’d also get at least a dozen other games, ranging in quality from old Thief (at the high end) to Daikatana (on the low), is just gravy.

Square Enix are flogging 16 or so games cheap in the latest Humble Bundle, coming in three tiers depending on how much you fancy spending. It’s well worth a look.

Penny For Your BioShocks: The Humble 2K Bundle Is A Steal

By Nathan Grayson on July 9th, 2014.

Rarely do I effusively recommend a bundle made up entirely of games I already own, but it’s kinda hard to argue with every BioShock, Spec Ops: The Line, Mafia II, The Darkness II, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown, among others. The Humble 2K Bundle does come with a slight catch (a flat rate of $20 if you want a couple of the more recent games), but even then it’s a formidable deal. Unfortunately, this will technically count as purchasing The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, but don’t worry: I won’t tell anyone.

Bundles Bundles Bundles: Two Weeks Of Daily Humbundles

By Alice O'Connor on May 14th, 2014.

One of John's this, I believe

You’ve got to get your Humble Bundles out when guests come over, haven’t you. Show them the collection, that’s right. They always say they enjoy looking, don’t they, though they do ask why you never play any of them. They don’t get get it, do they, but that’s fine. You’ve got your collection, all tidy and shiny in those pewter frames. Those frames with a gap in the middle. That dreadful, gaping gap that creeps into your dreams and you awake screaming. The Humble Bundle you missed.

Chin up, chuck! You might catch it again. The Humble folks are running a fortnight of daily pay-what-you-want Humble Bundles–some old favourites and some new hopefuls–so fingers crossed That One That Got Away comes around again.

Steam Who? – Humble Bundle’s Spring Sale

By Nathan Grayson on May 7th, 2014.

Is there going to be a spring Steam sale? Or has Valve finally elected to give its wearied money counters – their abacuses gnarled and gnawed on, fear and desperation write large on waxen wood – a brief respite? I’m not entirely sure it matters now, though, as Humble has elected to fire the first shot with a sale of its own, and it’s off to a damn impressive start. Check it out for deep discounts on games like South Park: The Stick of Truth, Batman: Arkham Origins, Broken Age, Shadowrun: Dragonfall, and Thief. Tons more below.

Garry’s Mod And State Of Decay In Humble Bundle

By Alice O'Connor on April 11th, 2014.

HOORAY!

Say kid, how do you fancy being a YouTube sensation, a real livestream Liberace? “B-but where would I even start?” you ask, eyes wide with hope. A new Humble Weekly Sale offers almost everything you need to become an Internet megastar, minus the hardware and a dreadful persona.

Curated by ‘PewDiePie’ (he has YouTube’s most-subscribed channel, don’t you know?) the bundle packs a few games the exhausting manbaby personality has wailed obscenities over, including Surgeon Simulator 2013, Garry’s Mod, and State of Decay.

Special Humble Bundle With 30 Games, For Brandon Boyer

By John Walker on March 13th, 2014.

You may well remember that last week we mentioned Brandon Boyer’s ongoing fundraiser to pay continuing bills for his cancer treatment, after getting horrendously screwed over by his health insurance. The great news is, he’s crossed the baseline to afford the $110,000 of bills he’s already accrued in an effort to not be dead. But the situation is ongoing, and what would be incredible would be to see this champion of indie games, bossman of the Independent Games Festival, and all-round good egg, have enough in the bank that he doesn’t have to worry about vital further treatment. And anything more he makes than he needs will be going to charities that will do the same for others.

Helping with that is a new mega-bundle from Humble, alongside the already-running Devolver bundle, which packs in an incredible 30 indie games (so far) for $25. And they’re good games. In there are the likes of VVVVVV, Thomas Was Alone, Actual Sunlight, Blocks That Matter, McPixel, Waking Mars, Proteus, Sokobond, Stacking, and World Of Goo. Yeah.

Humble Weekly Sale Offers PopCap Games For Charity

By Graham Smith on March 7th, 2014.

Very excellent.

This week’s Humble Weekly sale is a PopCap bundle, but with an added twist: EA are giving 100% of their cut to charity. Two charities, in fact, between which you can choose your split: the V Foundation for Cancer Research, and The Melanoma Research Alliance which specifically fights skin cancer.

Pay more than $1 and you’ll get a copy of Peggle (download size: one Peggle), zen-like match three puzzler Bejeweled 3, word puzzler Bookworm Deluxe, and two other games. Pay more than $6 and you’ll also get Plants vs. Zombies, Zuma’s Revenge and Peggle Nights. You’ll even get Origin and Steam keys for each one.

Maybe this is Kindness Week and we only just realised?

What’s Yours Is Charity’s: Humble Indie Bundle 11

By Nathan Grayson on February 19th, 2014.

Another Humble Indie Bundle? What a strange turn of events. I thought for sure that Humble was going to suddenly and inexplicably shut down their massively successful enterprise this time around. I mean, they’re on Humble Indie Bundle 11 now. What a gross number. Ten – nay, X – was so svelte, so confident. It plucked the olive from life’s martini glass just so, and we all just wanted its gaze to fall on us for a single precious second. So seriously, what’s even the point of having more Humble Bundles? Oh, right: amazing games and charity and stuff. This time around, the star-studded lineup includes Guacamelee, Monaco, Antichamber, and my personal favorite puzzler of 2013, The Swapper.

Amnesia Fortnight 2014 Offers 31 New Double Fine Pitches

By Graham Smith on February 7th, 2014.

Also Breach looks a lot like Heat Signature.

Amnesia Fortnight is two weeks every year during which Double Fine allow their entire staff to pitch and make game prototypes, with the goal of eventually expanding a few of those games, and maybe turning some into a full retail release. It’s the process through which Costume Quest and Stacking were born; it was opened to public voting and documenting last year, birthing Spacebase; and it’s now back for another while around.

As per last year, that means you can buy your way into the process via a pay-what-you-want Humble page. That let’s you vote on which of the 31 prototypes get developed (including 4 by Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward), and perhaps most excitingly lets you watch the 2 Player documentaries of the entire process.

I’ve embedded Double Fine’s introductory video a few of the best pitch videos and trailers for a couple of games below.

Civilised: Humble Sid Meier Bundle

By Adam Smith on February 5th, 2014.

The latest Humble Bundle offers the chance to own three complete Civilizations, as if you were trying to recreate the British Empire. Along with Civs III, IV, the lowest tier contains the recent Ace Patrol games, which are fairly lightweight, but clever, replayable and oddly adorable considering the World War dogfighting subject matter. All of that, along with the latest incarnation of Railroads! can be yours for any chosen price. Pay more than the average (at time of writing, $8.16) and you’ll receive Civ V, and the Gods and Kings DLC. More than $15 unlocks the Brave New World DLC as well. BONUS: approximately two days of a Humble Paradox sale remain.

I Very Much Roguelike The Humble Weekly Bundle

By John Walker on January 27th, 2014.

While the main Humble Bundle is diverting itself from gaming with a really quite splendid collection of audiobooks, it seems to have snuck out one of the best collections of games so far in its Weekly Bundle. Rather than showcasing games from one studio, this week it’s a collection of Roguelikes. (Everyone who wants to have a fight about the terminology, please do so here.) That’s Paranautical Activity, Dungeons Of Dredmor Complete, Hack Slash Loot, The Binding Of Isaac + DLC, Teleglitch Die More Edition, and Sword Of The Stars: The Pit Gold. Cor.
