$5 for Her Story and Roundabout is a right bargain, so I’d heartily recommend the full motion video-tastic latest Humble Weekly Bundle for those alone. Her Story’s a crime mystery told through recordings of interview footage (see its Advent calendar entry, Adam’s Wot I Think, and our spoiler-filled discussion), while Roundabout is a delightful driving game with a constantly-revolving limousine and a charming silly story filled with FMV and stock footage (check out our Wot I Think). Good games!
On top of those two, the bundle also offers another eight FMV-laden games, including loads of futuregumshoe Tex Murphy. Not too shabby! Well, Tex himself is shabby. That trenchcoat must smell like a dead dog by now. The bundle’s good, I mean.
It’s the usual Humble pay-what-you-want tiered bundle deal. The base bundle offers the crowdfunded revival Tesla Effect: A Tex Murphy Adventure, along with the vintage Tex Murphy: Martian Memorandum, Tex Murphy: Mean Streets, Tex Murphy: Overseer, Tex Murphy: The Pandora Directive, and Tex Murphy: Under a Killing Moon, plus ’90s interactive movies The 7th Guest and The 11th Hour Pack, and the grim, gritty first episode of Missing: An Interactive Thriller.
Pay at least $5 and you’ll get Roundabout and Her Story on top of those. $5! Bargain.
All offer Steam keys and are on Windows, while some variously are on Mac and Linux and come DRM-free – check the small print if that matters to you.
The bundle will be sold until Thursday.
