Pony Island is a game John wants so much for you to play that if you fall asleep near him at a house party he will, after drawing a banana and two mouldy satsumas on your forehead in marker, he will tie you to a chair and force you to play. So do yourself a favour and check out the new Humble Bundle, whose tiers the ponies and other such treats as Day of the Tentacle Remastered and N++. It’s a pretty good bargain!The Humble Overwhelmingly Positive Bundle (all its games are rated ‘overwhelmingly positive’ on Steam, Humble explain) runs the usual way. It’s pay-what-you-want, with games divided between tiers to give you more as you pay more.
Pay anything at all and you’ll receive glitch-o-mystery-megametagame Pony Island (read Wot John Thinks too), throwback RPG Epic Battle Fantasy 4, and jump ’em up Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse. As ever, you’ll need to pay at least $1 for Steam keys.
Pay the current average price ($6.81/£5.60 as I write) or more and you’ll get revamped LucasArts adventure game Day of the Tentacle Remastered (see Wot John Thinks), supernatural arcade murderfest Deadbolt, and… some other games, who’ll be revealed next week.
Lastly, pay at least $10 (£8.20-ish) and you’ll also get cyberpunk bartending game VA-11 Hall-A (read Wot Sin Vega Thinks) and super slick platformer N++ (The Mechanic had a good rummage in its guts).
Those are some good video games! Some of them are new to me but on the whole, cool-o.
Oh, Humble have an Assassin’s Creed bundle on the go now too. That’s hundreds of hours of murder for $15!
