Humble Indie Bundle 17: Lethal League, Nuclear Throne

Humble Bundles come every fortnight nowadays but the Humble Indie Bundle is still a rare treat, something a bit fancier than the rest – the flagship bundle. Numero diecisiete is now upon us (I know – diecisiete already! but it has been six years of HIBs), a pay-what-you-want bundle of games including Lethal League, The Beginner’s Guide, Super Time Force Ultra, Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, and Nuclear Throne.

As ever with Humble Bundles, you can name your own price and split it up between devs, charity, and Humble. All games come DRM-free for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and you get Steam keys too if you pay at least $1.

Pay anything at all and you’ll get ace ball-batting fighting game Lethal League, curious first-person breakdown The Beginner’s Guide, and pleasing roguelikelike space shooter Galak-Z.

Pay more than the current average price ($5.13 as I write this) and you’ll also get the Pip-enraging wacky physics ’em up Octodad: Dadliest Catch, fab co-op spaceship shooter Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime, time-jumping shooty platformer Super Time Force Ultra, and mystery bonus games yet to be revealed.

Lastly, pay at least $10 and you’ll get roguelikelike shooter Nuclear Throne too.

That’s a solid lineup – perhaps less spectacular than some but sheesh, it’s a heck of a lot of good gaming. You’ve got two weeks to grab it.

    Just wanna leave a comment to vouch for The Beginner’s Guide, considering I couldn’t convince any of my friends to play it. It offers some really beautiful storytelling, and I love it to death.

      +1 to this. Anyone who hasn’t given it a shot yet, should definitely take the plunge now. This guy knows exactly what he’s doing.

      I’d suggest people play it, especially given an opportunity like this, but personally I found it deathly dull and it didn’t really go anywhere.

      It worked on a meta level, but it needed to work on it’s own too, and it didn’t. A dry voice over narration carrying a virtually non-existent narrative. It felt like the whole thing needed a couple more drafts to better leverage some nice ideas.

    STFU is just amazing. So clever, so playful. Playable with m + kB too.

    Oh man, I love Nuclear Throne, but it’s a bit disingenuous of them to say it’ll never go on sale and then include it in a bundle like this at a discounted price.
