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.

New Humble Bundle: Rocket League, Spelunky, Nidhogg

The latest Humble Bundle is a good’un, with games including Spelunky, Rocket League, Nidhogg, and Skullgirls going cheap. The first three of those are modern PC classics, I’d say, and Skullgirls isn’t half-bad either. The Humble Revelmode Bundle has more games too, obvs.

Sonic The Hedgehog’s Humble Birthday Blowout Bundle

Sonic the Hedgehog turns 25 on Thursday, which is a good cause to pull out the interactive photo book and look at how we once were. “Coo, remember when we hadta to fast?” you ask, jabbing at his cute pink belly in the picture. He frowns and tugs unconsciously at his neckerchief – give him a few years. “Ahh and remember when we wantedta go fast?” you ask, leafing through more pages. “Then… then we shouldnta gone fast. I’m sorry, I…” You take his gloved hand. “How are you really doing?”

All of which can only mean that Humble Bundle have a load of Sonic games in their latest pay what-you-want dealio. Some of them are quite good!

Her Story, Read Only Memories & Cibele For $1 In Humble Narrative Bundle

Wowee, isn’t this a nice little surprise to help us shake off the Tuesday Wednesday blues? The latest Humble Bundle – Humble Narrative Bundle – has kicked off and, as always, the first tier is in familiar “pay what you want” format, with Steam keys costing a minimum of $1. Thing is, this particular collection’s premier platform features one-time RPS Game of the Month and FMV Game of 2015 Her Story, cyberpunk retro point-and-clicker Read Only Memories, and Nina Freeman’s lovely semi-autobiographical adventure Cibele. Based on those alone this is probably my favourite bundle yet, but there’s more.

Humble Bundle: Grow Home, Gunslinger, Rayman For $1

The latest Humble Bundle is a repeat of one from February, but it’ll be a mighty wild day when I’m bored by seeing Call of Juarez: Gunslinger, Grow Home, and Rayman Oranges for less than a quid. Only one dollar for the lot! What a bargain! Paying extra can get you games like Far Cry 3 too but dang, each of those ground-level games is a stonker.

Humble Devolver Bundle: Not A Hero, Titan Souls & Talos

The games that fly under publisher Devolver Digital‘s banner are often funny, sometimes silly, and always quirky. Frantic shooter Not A Hero revels in its messy, hedonistic chaos; Dropsy tells the tale of sad, social misfitting clown; and The Talos Principle is a wonderful game about philosophy and mind-boggling puzzles, to name but a few. The Humble Devolver Bundle has them all and more and is live right now.

Sunless Sea, Else Heart.Break() In Humble Indie Bundle

While Brendan skipped around gaily like a cyberkid in a cybercandy shop, hacking that candy to receive godlike powers, John was less enamoured with Else Heart.Break(). If you were torn between those two opinions and passed over the sandbox RPG when it came out last year, hey, it’s in the latest Humble Bundle. It’s a mega-bargain, also offering Sunless Sea, Trine 3, Door Kickers, and more for as little as £6.

Humble Ubi: Grow Home, Gunslinger And Rayman For $1

The hours I’ve spent with XCOM 2 were enough to silence my inner-cynic for a while. It’s the king of sequels. Nothing sets him off on one of his diatribes quite like a Big Publisher Bundle though. What better place is there to cast off all of those unwanted spin-offs and fifteenth entries in series that became stale years ago than a cheap compilation package? What a surprise, then, to find that Ubisoft’s Humble Bundle packs in three of the company’s best recent releases in the $1 or more tier. Grow Home, Call of Juarez: Gunslinger and Rayman: Origins for the price of a croissant.
