Wow.  Humble is Indiegala now.


Actually I'd say it's more a bit closer to a cross between their own store frontpage and Groupees frontpage, but IG's not a bad comparison either.

You couldn't help noting with every breath that thousands of other people were very close to you and nearly all of them had armpits.

The good news: Darkest Dungeon was finally bundled.

 

The bad news...

And the wait for Darkest Dungeon continues. Hopefully it ends up like The Witness when that was in one of these.

 

I'd be up for this if at least half the games weren't multi-bundled garbage.

Yeah, there's a few interesting games in this bundle, but yeesh, lots of rebundled stuff (even if most of it is pretty solid).

This is the best Humble Bundle in ages. I can just pass on it immediately instead of F5ing every couple of minutes for an hour when I know I'm not going to buy it anyway!

Only 3 games have never been in a bundle and two of them are the literal highlights of it.

 

Not a great bundle unless you never buy bundles. The resale value on everything bar DD and Starbound is super low.

Starbound was bundled before in a limited high tier Humble. I think a lot of CAGs got it from that, still a highlight in this though.

Yea I was going off the chart in Steamgifts. I rarely buy high tiers.

I got my Starbound from when it was supercheap in a russian 4 pack or something.

 

I can't remember exactly because I haven't thought about the game after the 3rd world wipe they did in the first couple of months.

But it's not stickin' it to Trump, and that's why the we get bundle leftovers for $30.

$30 for a bunch of $1 tier games.

 

Starbound shamelessly cached in on the popularity of Terraria because it had the same artist.  The actual brains behind Terraria semi-retired and now teases people with ten year development cycles for Terraria 2.

 

Anyway, Starbound ain't even worth $1.

It's a very bland narrative experience.  It plays more like a 1980's Capcom platformer with crappier controls and tepid environments/enemies.  The crafting is only good if you're one of those Minecraft/I like building things for the sake of building things type.  As far as random loot/metroidvania/boss farming actual game games go, Terraria blows the doors off of it.

I just don't even know what to think of this. First click was Oh Darkest Dungeon is in a bundle, then I see the price and the rest of the bundle. X'd out of that so fast. It's like they are not even trying anymore.... well in a while.

Had my eye on The Park for awhile now, but man there is a bunch of garbage in there. Even at $15 I wouldn't buy this sucker. Rather save the $30 and put it towards a couple monthlies.

While I like the idea I wish they had done this in addition to a normal bundle rather than in place of one.

This bundle's price sucks.

FTFY.

This bundle sucks.

More than anything else, it continues Humble's pattern of undercutting themselves. 

If they were smarter, they'd bundle a game once and then let the dev go on their way. 

But if you work with a dev and put them in a Monthly Bundle and then 2-3 months later toss them into a low tier of one of your bundles (especially the dollar tier!) , you devalue both yourself and the perceived value of the devs work. 

Are they seriously so hard up for people to work with that they need to drastically undercut themselves every three months? So much of this is just perception, and Humble just seems to be in a rush to make themselves look two-bit. 

 

It's silly, honestly.

Maybe it changed, but when I played there didn't seem to be much of a point besides "gather stuff" and "build stuff".

I didn't mind this because I used to play Minecraft the same way.  I would just dig and "build" caverns and stuff.  Last time I played Minecraft I had a giant "room" carved out at lava level.

 

 

I feel as though this and "now featuring new and improved crappy pixel graphics" are the selling points of this weird sub-genre. I'm hoping they'll all die soon so people will go back to making actual games.

But crappy pixel graphics are easy and makes it easy to have a "game" where you can destroy the environment and build anything!

You should work for Mojang in marketing. Your ad copy is brilliant.
