The Humble Freedom of Tons of Games
The Humble Freedom Bundle is one of original bundle site Humble Bundle’s most ambitious offerings. It includes $600 worth of games, books, films and music, and the proceeds all go to the ACLU, the International Rescue Commission and Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders).
The games alone make the bundle worth picking up. They include loads of IGR favorites, like The Witness and Stardew Valley, both of which made our list of the Top 10 Indie Games of 2016, and Invisible, Inc., which made the previous year’s list.
Other award-winners and cult favorites include the likes of The Stanley Parable, Guacamelee, World of Goo, AI War: Fleet Command, Waking Mars, A Virus Named TOM, Hand of Fate, 7 Grand Steps: What Ancients Begat, Potatoman Seeks the Troof and Mushroom 11.
Besides a number of games we here at IGR have played and enjoyed, there are a few upcoming games in Early Access that we’re very much looking forward to checking out:
from Wolfire Games
This one’s been in development for a while, but between the precision combat, physics-based violence and the fact that it involves ninja rabbits, Overgrowth looks like the most traumatic rabbit-based entertainment since Watership Down.
A game oriented entirely toward the online streaming community, this arena-based game involves both the players themselves and their online audience, who can bet on outcomes and even change the rules and environments in real time. An intriguing and ambitious concept, but will it find an audience?
Procedurally generated co-op and PVP madness in space, GRAV aims to be an online sandbox experience where nearly anything goes. Between base-building, exploration, crafting and combat, GRAV could be brilliant or it could be a massive flop like last year’s No Man’s Sky. Either way, we’re curious.
Limits May Apply
Despite the fact that this bundle only runs for a week rather than the usual two – not to mention the comparatively steep $30 price tag – Humble Bundle has already sold out of Steam keys for several of the listed items, including perennial platform hell favorite Super Meat Boy. And the deal only runs until the end of this weekend. If you’re planning on buying this bundle – and we think you should – get on it quick.
