Devil Daggers & free Pony Island in new Humble Bundle

John might tell you that the highlight of the bargain Humble Bundle is a free copy of Pony Island, an “Oh I’d tell you what it is but even that would be giving too much away” game he declared the smartest game of 2016. Me, I’m here to tell you that the bargain bundle’s highlight is actually Devil Daggers, a deadly fast score attack FPS which feels like it escaped from an alternate timeline where everything’s all skulls and satans – and is RPS’s actual official Bestest Best game of 2016. Mate, you could have both of those — and more — for just a couple of quid. Mega-deal! Read the rest of this entry »

Humble Saints Row Bundle has other games too

The new Humble Saints Row Bundle is only about 50% Saints Row, puffed out with rusk and a little spice, but that’s a legally acceptable ratio for sausages and I suppose will do for a pay-what-you-want bundle of video games. It’s more like a Humble Deep Silver Bundle but shops don’t go calling pork sausages ‘pork, water, and rusk sausages’ either. If you’ve somehow avoided picking up the splendid Saints Row open-world silly crimefests before: 1) welcome to the Internet! it’s okay but watch your step; 2) you can now get them nice and cheap. They are fun video games. Read the rest of this entry »

Humble selling best Telltale games for 15 smackeroos

Oh boy, have we got sales news for you, vast gaping maw of collective consumerism. Isn’t it a beautiful day for buying things? The Humbler Bundlers have put together a bunch of Telltale’s better games for $15. Yes, everyone has probably already got their critically acclaimed zombies ‘n’ conversation games based on the Walking Dead. But has everybody got Batman? Has everybody got Game of Thrones? Has everybody got…

Humble Bundle packs Dead Rising, Resident Evil & DmC

The latest Humble Bundle is crammed with Capcom content for savvy bargaineers who fancy killing demons and zombies. The star game for me is 2013’s DmC: Devil May Cry, which can be had for less than a quid, though I suppose some folks would be far more excited about all the Dead Risings and Resident Evils. It’s a decent bundle, which you have another 13 days to grab. Read the rest of this entry »

Rain World and Glittermitten Grove on sale for $cheap

Here’s some cheapo games because you like cheapo things and you’re a cheapo person. Don’t give me that look, I’m just being honest. The same folks that do this sort of thing all the time are Humbling Bundling survival platformer Rain World together with Glittermitten Grove, which is a fairy management sim and definitely not hiding any other amphibious videogames inside its slimy belly sac, if that’s what you’re thinking. This is all part of the Adult Swim bundle, which includes some other bits and bobs.

Get Stellaris for just $12 through Humble Monthly

Stellaris header

Grand strategy game Stellaris [official site] throws up some pretty wild space stories – just read Brendan’s account of being a galactic robot dad or his tale of a peaceful race of multicultural turtles and you’ll see what I mean. It was one of the best games of last year and the recent expansion, Utopia, has taken it up another level.

The base game will set you back £40 on Steam but this month you can pick it up for just $12 through Humble Monthly, the Humble’s subscription service for a package of mystery games that releases (you guessed it!) once a month. That’s a sweet deal – and don’t worry, you can cancel after the first bundle.

Uurnog is a musical platformer from Knytt creator

I know an ‘Uurnog’ sounds like some gargantuan beast from Norse legend, but it’s not. Uurnog [official site] is really a newly announced, synthy, block-grabbing platformer from yer man Nifflas, aka Niklas Nygren, the creator of the Knytt series and NightSky among others. The aim in this one is to explore the world and “steal all the animals and keep them in the save room – the only place that doesn’t reset when you die.”

Humble Freedom Bundle adds even more games

The Humble Freedom Bundle has added another seventeen games to the mega-bargain bundle raising money for Doctors Without Borders, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the International Rescue Committee. These additions aren’t names as big as some of the bundle’s founding games, like Stardew Valley and The Witness, but there’s some gooduns and good grief, it’s a whole lot of video games to get for putting $30 (or more!) towards good causes.

The Humble Freedom Bundle is a ridiculous bargain

Humble today launched perhaps their best bundle yet. The Humble Freedom Bundle will cost you a minimum of $30 but that price gets you cracking games like Stardew Valley, The Witness, Invisible Inc, Mini Metro, Subnautica, Super Meat Boy, and over thirty (!) more, along with some digital books and… this is a goodun all right. It’s for a good cause too, with all money going to Doctors Without Borders, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the International Rescue Committee. Read the rest of this entry »

Star Wars Humble Bundle 3 is full of stars, wars

It’s cold outside. There’s no kind of atmosphere. You’re all alone, more or less. But Humble want to let you fly far away from here. They’ve launched another Star Wars Humble Bundle full of fun, fun fun, in the suns, suns, suns. This time, the pay-what-you-want bundle has a couple of TIE Fighter and X-Wing games, some of the finest space pew-pew sims, along with your usual assortment of Jedi Knights, Rebel Assaults, Knights of the Old Republic, and so on. That’s a lot of pew for your pennies. Read the rest of this entry »

New Humble Bundle includes Pony Island and N++

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!

Weather warning: Steam’s winter sale comes storming in

Batten down the wallet hatches, stow the pounds below deck, eat the fivers – barely a month after the closing of the Autumn sale and its awards, the Winter sale has descended on Steam like a terrible maelstrom, demanding tithes and sacrifices, disappearing all who stand in its way and eating their hearts. I don’t know where this metaphor is going. The sale is either a storm or an Aztec god. Make up your own mind.

New Humble Bundle includes Grimrock 2, TIS-100

If you’ve any pennies left spare after the bargain blowout of A Good Bundle and premature ‘Black Friday’ sales, do have a look at the latest Humble Bundle. Paying anything, anything at all, will get you Zachtronics’ ace programming puzzler TIS-100 and the pretty throwback dungeon crawler Legend of Grimrock 2, for starters. Paying more can get you more games, including The Secret World and Grim Dawn. Read the rest of this entry »

Humble Unreal Engine Bundle: Ethan Carter, The Culling

Games including The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Killing Floor, Shadow Complex Remastered, and The Culling are going cheap in the Humble Unreal Engine Bundle. It’s a curious thematic grouping but hey, after curating 200-odd bundles you’d be reaching too. Here’s a suggestion, Humble: the Humble Unreal Engine Versus Quake Engine Bundle. Let’s dust off our best pointless arguments from 1999. Read the rest of this entry »

Humble Bundle-O-Rama: Clickteam, Company Of Heroes

Another Humble Bundle is offering friendly game-making tools for cheap. Following a GameMaker bundle last month, now they’re back with the the Humble Clickteam Fusion 2.5 Bundle. As you might guess, the pay-what-you-want bundle is built around the game-making software Clickteam Fusion, also packing some games built with it – including Metroid ’em up Environmental Station Alpha, jumpscare ’em up Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, multiplayer adventure The Yawhg, and citybuilding puzzler Concrete Jungle.

And now for something completely different: Humble also has loads of Company of Heroes games bundled up, celebrating ten years of the fine WW2 RTS series.

Devil Daggers & Prison Architect In New Humble Bundle

In case you’ve not picked up on all the hints: Devil Daggers [official site] is my favourite new game of 2016, and I’d say the best-looking game in yonks too. Devil Daggers is Geometry Wars thrown against a satanic altar in a darkened room made of Quake [see me -metaphors ed.]. I do recognise a leaderboard-climbing first-person shooter in skull-filled satanarena is a hard sell for some so here, look, it’s in the latest pay-what-you-want Humble Bundle along with Prison Architect and more games. Maybe that makes it cheap enough for you to give it a try?

Do It Yourself With The Humble GameMaker Bundle

We may have, at times, given you the impression that all video games are made by a many-armed, many-faced god named Ian Video Games. You probably imagined a deity like a Bayonetta boss or something. We may have misled you. Just a tad. In truth, video games are made by people. Simply people, like you or I. And you or I could even make games ourselves. Not from dust either – from electricity, using computers.

GameMaker is fine software for making games and right now it’s mega-cheap too. Packed into the pay-what-you-want Humble GameMaker Bundle is a haul of game-making software plus actual games and source code too. (Infinite arms not included.)

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.

Humble 2K Bundle Offers Spec Ops The Line For A Dollar

The latest offering from Humble Bundle is a stack of 2K games, including third-person horrors-of-war shooter, Spec Ops: The Line [official site] in the lowest tier. That’s yours for a dollar or more but (the horror, the HORROR) you’ll have to take a copy of Duke Nukem Forever as well. The Darkness 2 is the much more palatable final third of that one dollar selection. Jumping to the next tier, with a minimum buy-in of $8.37, gets you a copy of Civ V, NBA 2K16, Mafia II and…a Battleborn skin pack. Civ V is decent, even without the expansions, but I’d be tempted to wait until October for the sequel.

Spec Ops is the star here. At that price, it’s close to unmissable.
