The Humble Store Spring Sale Is Upon Us

That creaking sound you hear is your wallet tightening at the seams at the thought of another digital PC games sale. You should be used to it by now though, as there always seems to be a sale on somewhere. At the moment it’s The Humble Store’s turn. Its Spring Sale began only a couple of days ago and will run for two weeks, until Thursday May 21st.

You know the drill. Hefty deals, all changing daily, with some games up to 90% off. Which is basically free really, so it’d be rude not to.

Picking Up Steam: Humble Launches Full Storefront

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.
