I don’t know what’s scary enough about the ‘Humble InDIE Bundle 13‘ to warrant that extravagant stylisation. Are we to imagine ᴏᴜʀ ʟɪᴍʙs sʜᴀᴛᴛᴇʀɪɴɢ ʜᴏʀʀɪʙʟʏ as we virtually skate in OlliOlli? Will Jazzpunk make us ʟᴀᴜɢʜ ᴏᴜʀsᴇʟᴠᴇs ᴛᴏ ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ? Is the ɪɴᴇᴠɪᴛᴀʙʟᴇ ᴄᴏʀᴘᴏʀᴀᴛᴇ ᴅʏsᴛᴏᴘɪᴀ of Shadowrun Returns meant to be depressing? Do they really think we’re afraid of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’ ʟɪᴛᴛʟᴇ ᴄᴜʀʟʏ ᴛᴀɪʟs? Are ɢᴜɴs terrifying enough to make you shriek at Tower of Guns? Should we quake at Risk of Rain’s ᴘᴏssɪʙɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴏғ ɪɴᴄʟᴇᴍᴇɴᴛ ᴡᴇᴀᴛʜᴇʀ? Do you fear Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet’s ᴛᴡɪsᴛʏ ᴛʜɪɴɢs? Is DIE a promise or a threat?
You know the Humble Bundle score by now, don’t you? They offer a selection of DRM-free games on Windows, Mac, and Linux for a price of your choosing, which you can split as you please between developers, organisers, and charities. The games are divided amongst price tiers, and you get Steam keys if you pay at least $1 (what kind of MONSTER wouldn’t?).
Paying anything gets you OlliOlli, Shadow Planet, and Tower of Guns. Beating the current average price gets you Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, Jazzpunk, four copies of Risk of Rain, and some mysterious other games yet to be revealed. Pay at least $12 and they’ll throw in Shadowrun Returns too. Many of these are fine video games. The Bundle will be on sale until November 11th.
You can get Teleglitch: Die More Edition without paying even a single penny too. Bargain.
[RPS whipped together our own Humble Bundle earlier this year, but we didn’t see a penny from it.]
