Humble Indie Bundle 6 has arrived

Man, these Humble Indie Bundles. Not only do they just keep coming, they are also pretty much perfect for me, the psuedo-new PC gamer (on a Mac, yes) who has basically gone 75/25 indie. Oh, sure, I still play “big” games, usually something like a year after they come out, and I take my sweet, sweet time with them. But really, most of my playing time these days comes courtesy of crazy Steam sales and humble bundles, and I couldn’t be happier.

I’m sure you know the drill by now. You set your own price to receive 5-6-ish well-received indie titles from the recent past. Most of the money goes to the developers,but you can set it up so that the EFF and Child’s Play get a cut of your contribution, as well as the Humble Bundle service itself. So it’s a win-win-win: you get good games, you get them for ridiculously cheap (if you care to), and some of that money goes to charity.

Of course, none of this helps you if you’ve already got the games. This time around, the bundle includes Torchlight (which everyone loves), Rochard (which is excellent – I reviewed the PSN version back in the old GameShark days), S.P.A.Z., Shatter, Vessel, and Space Pirates and Zombies. If you pay higher than the average, you get Dustforce thrown in for good measure.

Everything works on PC, Mac and Linux. No excuses, people.

What I do for work: spend my days as the ACLU design/code/video ninja, write about games, make (tiny) games, teach digital media at Northeastern University. What I do for fun: all of the above, plus lots of running, fitness fun, filmmaking, outdoor exploration, world travel, sci-fi everything.

  1. After couple of Humble Bundles full of games I already had, I was surprised that I only had Torchlight from the new bundle. And it’s nice to finally be able to try some of those games which I’ve been eyeing for quite some time, couple of which haven’t even been on my radar, but turned out quite nice (Shatter seems great).

  2. SPAZ and Space Pirates & Zombies are actually the exact same game, one is just the acronym of the other :).

    I’d get this just for Dustforce if I didn’t literally own every other game in the bundle already.

    1. But… if you only pay $6 you get Dustforce which is $9.99 on Steam, $12.99 if you wanted the soundtrack version (which HIB includes). Plus, charity you know? Seems like a no-brainer to me.

  3. Hmm…I might just get this for S.P.A.Z.

    By the way, hurry up and play Mass Effect 3 so you can talk about it when you make your glorious return to the podcast 😉
