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.
