Earlier this week, I wrote an article in which I shared some of my strategies to save some money on games. One of those strategies was waiting for a new Humble Indie Bundle to come out. Hopefully, you liked the article, took into account some of those strategies, gathered some patience and waited for a while. If you did, congratulations, you are being rewarded with the fifth iteration of the Humble Indie Bundle. In fact, this package is probably one of the best (if not the best) ever released as it includes copies of Psychonauts, Limbo, Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP, Amnesia: The Dark Descent as well as their respective soundtracks. And if you’re willing to pay above the average price ($7.64 as of this writing) you get a digital copy of Bastion and its soundtrack.
It’s worth pointing out that apart from the main four Humble Indie Bundles there have been some exclusive ones such as the Botanicula Debut, Frozenbyte and Android bundles. As an avid supporter of DRM-free version of games, I must admit that I have been following these bundles for a while now. So far my favorite ones have been the second bundle which included Braid, Machinarium and Osmos, among some other games, and the forth one which featured Bit.Trip Runner, Jamestown, Shank, Super Meat Boy and Nightsky. Nevertheless, I think this might be my new favorite Humble Indie Bundle as the quality and value of these games is simply staggering.
This initiative is perfect for those who have a limited budget to spend on games (check,) love DRM-free titles (check) and enjoy playing independent games (check.) In the meantime, you’re also contributing to charity so this is like the perfect deal. In addition, you may choose how much of the money you pay goes to developers and how much to charity. All the aforementioned titles are cross-platform (Windows, Mac OSX and Linux) and DRM-free. For more information about the Humble Indie Bundle V visit its official website.
