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 Indie Bundle 15: Gang Beasts, Skullgirls, More

Gang Beasts alone is easily worth £6.50, so the fact that the Humble Indie Bundle 15 will give you another six-plus games on top of the silly local multiplayer brawler for that price is… yeah, it’s quite the bargain. Also in the pay-what-you-want prize packet are X-COM ’em up Xenonauts, girl-puncher Skullgirls, and oh hey it’s RPS co-founder Jimmy Ro-Ro’s Sir, You Are Being Hunted. The bundle’s not all sunshine and roses, but dang, it’s still a fine deal.

No, Not Boo: The Humble InDIE Bundle

What's scary about being lost and alone in a church with pig carcasses on the altar?

I don’t know what’s scary enough about the ‘Humble InDIE Bundle 13‘ to warrant that extravagant stylisation. Are we to imagine ᴏᴜʀ ʟɪᴍʙs sʜᴀᴛᴛᴇʀɪɴɢ ʜᴏʀʀɪʙʟʏ as we virtually skate in OlliOlli? Will Jazzpunk make us ʟᴀᴜɢʜ ᴏᴜʀsᴇʟᴠᴇs ᴛᴏ ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ? Is the ɪɴᴇᴠɪᴛᴀʙʟᴇ ᴄᴏʀᴘᴏʀᴀᴛᴇ ᴅʏsᴛᴏᴘɪᴀ of Shadowrun Returns meant to be depressing? Do they really think we’re afraid of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs’ ʟɪᴛᴛʟᴇ ᴄᴜʀʟʏ ᴛᴀɪʟs? Are ɢᴜɴs terrifying enough to make you shriek at Tower of Guns? Should we quake at Risk of Rain’s ᴘᴏssɪʙɪʟɪᴛʏ ᴏғ ɪɴᴄʟᴇᴍᴇɴᴛ ᴡᴇᴀᴛʜᴇʀ? Do you fear Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet’s ᴛᴡɪsᴛʏ ᴛʜɪɴɢs? Is DIE a promise or a threat?

Luftpapersprisonpointwatchdighome: Humble Indie Bundle

Bundle purchase: approved!

Look, I realise that it’s been barely a day since I last told you a load of ace video games were on sale at pocket change prices, so I’m sorry if I keep banging on about this. I imagine you’re so bored of this sort of nonsense. “Blah blah Humble Bundle blah blah Gunpoint Luftrausers Papers, Please,” must be how your tired ears hear my droning, “blah blah Gone Home woopity doo Prison Architect.” But please, indulge my grotesque interest in telling people about rad games one more time.

Humble Indie Bundle 9 Expands, And In Style

The Humble Indie Bundle 9 has, as you would have expected, updated. And I feel safe in saying it’s now likely the best bundle there’s ever been. Before you could pick up Trine 2, Mark Of The Ninja Eets Munchies Beta, Brutal Legend, FTL and FEZ for just a few coins. It was already pretty astonishing. A week in, and over half a million sales later, it’s now added four new games, Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, A Virus Named TOM, Bastion, and LIMBO. Good heavens.

Will You Blendo? Latest Humble Weekly Is A Smasher

Not sure we’ve posted about the Humble Weekly Sale yet. This is because all we enlightened souls on RPS all dispute the concept of ‘weeks.’ It’s an artificial tyranny imposed upon us by the secret world government in order to keep us from the independent thought that would allow us to realise there are in fact 417 days in a year. The world leaders spend these hidden 52 days at a giant orgy the rest of us aren’t even aware of, let alone invited to, because we’re too busy working, paying the taxes which fund that immense, secret international flesh-fest. It makes me so angry! Thus, I’m sickened that the Humble Bundle guys feel they can make light of the insidious concept of ‘weeks’, that they can appropriate this tool of ultimate opporession for a pay-what-you-want bundle of awesome indie games. This week – OH GOD THEY MADE ME SAY IT – it’s the turn of the incomparable Blendo Games. Atom Zombie Smasher, Flotilla, 30 Flights and Loving and more are yours for a low, low, customisable price.

The Bundle Singularity Has Begun

And I will call him Bundlestein.

The day foretold in The Prophecy is finally upon us. Friends, countrymen, arch-nemeses, it’s time for us to lay down our slings and arrows and start wrapping each other in warm, tear-soaked hug blankets. Today, you see, the bundles have aligned. Humble Indie Bundle and Indie Royale both put out new offerings on the same day, and also I saw one awfully portentous-looking crow just kind of wandering around on street earlier. Clearly, there’s no other conclusion to be drawn: this is the end. I love you all. Except the terrible ones.
