leave a comment »

Fresh on the heels of Humble Bundle’s controversial THQ bundle, they’ve released a new bundle that includes 6 games, and a movie.

The movie, redeemable through Steam, as are all the other games, is Indie Game: The Movie, the award winning documentary which explains the independent game market while profiling some of it’s biggest stars.

All other games are, in true Humble Bundle fashion, available for Mac and Linux as well, with games such as Shank 2 and Legends of Grimrock making their debut on those operating systems.

The bundle will be available to purchase for two weeks, and has, in it’s first day, already raised over half a million dollars. Check it out here.

 

Humble Bundle Announces THQ Bundle

leave a comment »

Humble Bundle today announced it’s newest bundle titled “The Humble THQ Bundle,” which includes the games Saints Row: The Third, Red Faction: Armageddon, Metro 2033, Darksiders, and Company of Heroes, CoH: Tales of Valor, and CoH: Opposing Fronts.

While other Humble Bundles allow you to pay whatever you want in order to get the games, down to one cent, this new bundle requires that you pay at least one dollar. In order to unlock Saints Row, buyers will have to beat the average price consumers have paid, which at time of post is $5.29.

All these games work exclusively on Windows, and separately would cost almost $190.

The bundle so far has raised over $400,000, and with 13 days left that number is sure to grow. Head over to the Humble Bundle website in order to throw your support behind this amazing opportunity.

Double Fine Announces Amnesia Fortnight

leave a comment »

Double Fine Productions recently announced it’s first public ‘Amnesia Fortnight’ event in conjunction with Humble Bundle.

The process, introduced and outlined in the video above, consists of all the developers at Double Fine dropping what they’re working on and devoting 2 weeks to work on a game that for the first time the public gets to vote on.

The last few minutes of the video details the different game ideas, and to support those ideas and see them more in depth, you can vote for them here.

Some game ideas include climbing a tower to escape a nefarious forest, a Mario-like platformer where you design the levels, and a game where you have to escape an office building after pooping your pants.

As with all Humble Bundle deals, consumers are allowed to pay what they want in order to gain access to the prototypes.

New Humble Bundle announced

leave a comment »

One of the games included in the bundle.

Today the Humble Bundle for Android 4 was announced, containing 6 games that could be played on your Android phone, Mac, PC, or Linux machine.

Contained in the bundle are a few previous Humble Bundle games, including Crayon Physics Deluxe and Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP.

All together, the items included in the bundle would cost $119 if you were to buy them all separately. However, the Humble Bundle lets you set your own price. If you want the game Machinarium however, you’ll have to pay more than the average, which is at time of post $5.93.

So far, the bundle has sold more than 50,000 units and raised over $300,000.
