Also included in the bundle are Vampire: The Masquerade- Coteries of New York, Strange Brigade, Fun with Ragdolls, Lethal League Blaze, Evoland: Legendary Edition, Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, Catherine Classic, The Shapeshifting Detective, and The Occupation.
Humble advertise all that at a massive total of $278 worth of Steam games in one bundle (or £195.93/$253.91 at current Steam prices), though your value for money will depend on your Humble Choice tier package.
For the uninitiated, Humble Choice is a unique offering from the Humble Bundle store that provides a monthly list of 12 available games. The number of games that can be picked up as part of the subscription is based on how much you choose to pay. The Basic tier costs $14.99/£11.99 per month, or $134.99/£104.99 per year, and grants access to 3 games of your choosing each month. The Premium+ tier costs $19.99/£15.99 per month, or $179.99/£142.99 per year, and grants access to 9 games of your choosing each month. There is an additional Lite tier that costs $4.99/£3.99 per month, or $44.99/£35.99 per year, but this tier only grants access to the Humble Trove, a selection of DRM-free games that can be played only whilst your subscription remains active.
Lite and Basic tiers also grant 10% discounts in the Humble Store, whilst Premium+ includes 20% discounts.
August’s special deal returns for September as Humble Choice offers their Premium package at just $9/£9.66 per month and, for a limited time only, all Premium subscribers get full access to all 12 of the games listed above!
The games offered in Humble Choice are redeemable on Steam via CD key or giftable to a friend and are yours to keep— regardless of whether you stay subscribed to Humble Choice or not. Humble Choice allows you to purchase the bundle at any time during the month to gain access to the games that you select.
If you’re signed up and looking for suggestions, September’s offering is a particularly odd one, with a focus seemingly on co-operative online games.
Strange Brigade is a third-person action game taking hints from Valve’s Left 4 Dead, with up to four-player co-op against AI swarms. Stylistically, it’s a 1930s horror setting as players take on the role of bounty hunters looking to secure treasure and survive the ancient terrors guarding it. We gave Strange Brigade an 8/10 and said, “The game feels like a cross between Left 4 Dead and Tomb Raider but with even more puzzles to solve. It is an all around beautiful game that offers a bit of cheese.”
Generation Zero is a similar players-versus-AI experience for up to three people, this time set in 1980s Sweden. Hostile robots roam the streets, and players must survive them in the open world whilst picking up missions and working cooperatively to survive.
Golf with Your Friends is a more lighthearted affair as up to twelve players take part in a wild and wacky series of crazy golf events. This isn’t your grandpa’s golf though as pitches throw explosions, swinging saws, and more insanity than you’d expect to see on the green.
Forager drops the co-op element, instead offering a single-player dungeon exploration experience with aspects of survival and open-world crafting and searching across a variety of biomes. Perform archaeology, farming, animal care, and runic alchemy in this bizarre fantasy hybrid. In our review, we gave Forager a 9/10 and said it, “-won’t be for everyone, and if you don’t like grinding in games, this might be on the avoid list. For the genre though, this is fantastic and highly recommended.”
Don’t overlook some of the non-headliners either. Lethal League Blaze is the follow-up to the successful multiplayer baseball battler, turning the spherical toy into a deadly weapon in high-speed dodge-and-parry combat. Catherine Classic is a mature action-puzzler adventure game with some bizarre story twists and turns and no fear of a little Japanese raunchiness. Evoland: Legendary Edition contains both Evoland and Evoland II: A Slight Case of Spacetime Continuum Disorder in one great package of tongue-in-cheek fantasy open-world gameplay that both honors and pokes fun at the RPG classics that inspire it.
