Humble Very Positive Bundle 2 available now, featuring Oxenfree, Shadow of War, and more

Humble Very Positive Bundle 2

Have you heard the one about Humble making a new Bundle? It’s a good one. Rather, it’s a Very Positive one.

Following on from the original ‘Very Positive’ Bundle back in May this year, Humble has brought the idea back for another go – in the Humble Very Positive Bundle 2, funnily enough. The collection of games brought together here all feature Steam ratings of ‘Very Positive’ or above and while we can’t always rely on those ratings as proof of a game’s intrinsic qualities, as recent happenings have taught us, rest assured these games are quite good.

In this bundle, you’ll be able to get your hands on games like Rive, Neon Chrome, Oxenfree, Ultimate Chicken Horse, Death Road to Canada, Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition and even next month’s release of Middle-earth: Shadow of War, if you pay enough. As with all Humble stuff, a portion of the proceeds will go directly to charity – in this case, the chosen charity is Action Against Hunger, though you’re welcome to change to a charity of your choice.

On top of the games themselves, by picking up the bundle you’ll also be getting soundtracks to a few of the games, as well as 10% off your first month of Humble Monthly, which is a nice bonus as well.

Here are the games up for grabs:

Pay what you want
RIVE: Wreck, Hack, Die, Retry
Neon Chrome
Dungeon Souls

Pay more than the average
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Game of the Year Edition
Ultimate Chicken Horse
Oxenfree

Pay $10 (£7.40) or more
Death Road to Canada
Beat Cop

Pay $80 (£59.22) or more
Middle-earth: Shadow of War
Shadow of War T-Shirt

Yep, that last tier will even get you a Shadow of War T-shirt as a nice reminder that you did a good thing and are a relatively lovely person. Or that you really like Orcs.

    Yeesh $80.

    But I already own Shadow of Mordor. So I guess i’ll be giving that out to someone who likes stabbing orcs, and who doesn’t?

      To clarify, no one should get that $80 tier unless you’re doing it for charity.

      But the lower ones? Nice selection of games this run!

        Read it again, that’s for an as yet unreleased game + t-shirt for unreleased game.

          I’m aware.

          $80 is a lot for a promotional t-shirt and a preorder for a game.

            Plus 8 other games? And shipping for the shirt? No, that’s still a discount. It’s not $80 + $10 + pay more than the average.

            @Nauallis
            I suppose you are correct. Just sticker shock.

          • Vinraith says:

            A pre-order for a game that looks like it’s rapidly turning into microtransaction hell, incidentally. Every release regarding Shadow of War has made it look worse, and I say that as someone that really enjoyed SoM and had been looking forward to SoW.

      • Bilateralrope says:

        Select the $80 tier. Click the part to decide how much goes to each charity. Note this line:
        >To cover costs for the pre-order title and physical merchandise a deduction of $60 + tax will be made for qualifying bundles. Custom payment split ratios still apply to remaining payment.

        Again WB tries to hide important information regarding donations to charity.

    Really don’t fancy 60 quid for the microtransaction-ridden corpse of a brilliant game. WB’s frankly gross levels of avarice in this case have really put me off ever buying anything off them again. I’ll go down a step and buy the rest for sure though.

  3. Hyena Grin says:

    Don’t really care about tier one, already own 2/3 of tier two, and 80 bucks is too much for the preorder. =(

    Still humming and hawing over tier 3.

  4. Spider Jerusalem says:

    Neon Chrome is excellent.

  5. Alberto says:

    Death road to canada and Beat Cop are the stars here, I think.

    I bought Shadow of Mordor in a previous offer and I wish I could play the funnier, swearing, stronger, more interesting orc captains instead of [generic_revenge_male_heroe#24]. Also: parkour bullshit as in Assassins Creed, but much worse.

    But hey, for a few bucks, it’s ok I guess.

  6. Mechorpheus says:

    So they’ve decided that Shadow of War will be ‘Very Positive’ already? Quite presumptuous of them I think….

    Oxenfree is brilliant though.
