Video games are still stirring from their Yuletide slumber, yawning and stretching, putting their clothes on back-to-front by accident, looking for their keys, and trying to remember how they ever got made. I suppose I’ll tell you about some which are already out and you can buy and play right now. Two pretty respectable bundles are going on at the moment, for those not all spent-out after Christmas sales, including a number of games we’ve enjoyed like Year Walk, Secrets of Raetikon, Eidolon, and Fract OSC.
These week’s Humble Weekly Bundle is dedicated to “eye candy”, with perambulating puzzler Year Walk (our review), pretty FPS Lovely Planet, and arts & crafts shmup Blue Flamingo for whatever you want to pay. Beating the average, which is only $4.86 (£3.20) as I write, would also get you platformy action-RPG Dust: An Elysian Tail, Mind: Path to Thalamus (review), and explore-o-survive ’em up Eidolon (watch John die slowly). Lastly, pay at least $10 (£6.60) and they’ll throw in Fract OSC too (review).
It’s the usual DRM-free-and-Steam-keys-where-available dealio. Do note that bundle’s only available for another day-and-a-bit.
The other’s the latest from Bundle Stars, dedicated to the abstract. £1.99 gets you Secrets of Raetikon (John thinks you should play it), punch ’em up Megabyte Punch, twitch ’em up Velocibox, roleplaying roleplaying game Knights of Pen & Paper +1 Edition, engineering puzzler Great Permutator, top-down shooties in Meltdown, arcade shmup Pulstar, tower defense PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate, the fluid-simulating PixelJunk Shooter, and the weirdness that is Vangers.
That one’s running for two weeks, and all games come as Steam keys.
