Look, I realise that it’s been barely a day since I last told you a load of ace video games were on sale at pocket change prices, so I’m sorry if I keep banging on about this. I imagine you’re so bored of this sort of nonsense. “Blah blah Humble Bundle blah blah Gunpoint Luftrausers Papers, Please,” must be how your tired ears hear my droning, “blah blah Gone Home woopity doo Prison Architect.” But please, indulge my grotesque interest in telling people about rad games one more time.
The Humble Indie Bundle 12 does the usual pay-what-you want thing to get shovelling Metroidvania-y platformer SteamWorld Dig (wot John called “a really lovely, very fun time”), rogue electrician sim Gunpoint (“for a debut Gunpoint is enormously impressive” said Alec), and four-player co-op dungeon crawler Hammerwatch (review not found).
Beating the average price, which is $7.90 (about £5) as I write, also gets you paperwork sim Papers, Please (“peculiarly engrossing, darkly ominous, and a fascinating exploration of morality versus progress” said John), arcade dogfighter Luftrausers (“a hoot” is wot Alec thought), ’90s simulator Gone Home (“touching, unsettling, deeply honest, and enormously compassionate” –John), and something else Humble are keeping secret for now.
Oh, and paying more than $10 (£6.20) gets you Prison Architect too. Everything comes DRM-free, and with a Steam key as long as you pay at least $1.
Look, the point is that you can get some ruddy good games for very little money.
Psst, hey, the RPS Humble Weekly Bundle with some of our favourite games (and which we don’t see a penny of) is still on too.
