Humble Bundle 5 Goes Live, is Amazing

The ground forms up under his feet as if pointing the way...

The fifth Humble Bundle went live today, featuring five games of various genres on a pay-what-you-want basis. The five games that are included are:

  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent
  • Limbo
  • Psychonauts
  • Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP
  • Bastion (provided you pay above the average)

This is the first ‘proper’ Humble Bundle released for ages, with the previous few bundles being developer-specific or specifically for Android. It’s also possibly the best Humble Bundle to date, featuring some utterly superb games. It’s worth more than the average price for Bastion alone.

You can buy the bundle from the Humble Bundle website, as ever. At the time of writing the average price is $7.15 (about £4.64) and it’ll be available for 14 days. Plenty of time, but can you bear waiting?

For more information on Limbo, see this week’s Cheap PC Gaming, which happened to coincide with both a Steam sale and a bundle featuring the game due to some cosmic coincidence. You should also see Blair’s excellent Steamlog from a month ago, in which he covered Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

    I just bought the Graduation Bundle yesterday too. Seriously, my Steam consists of only indie bundles these days, aha.

    Why don’t they do bundles like this on the PSN.

    Just paid £4.89 to get Bastion as well, though I’ve pretty much played it with my mate, but it’s ace!. Soundtracks included as well.

    Paid $12.34, just because the numbers were next to each other on my keyboard.
    All the games for €9.98? Bargain!

    This is their best one yet, fantastic. I threw a few dollars more than average just to pay a bit more so I won’t feel like a total cheapskate.

    My Steam catalogue now consists of 88 games, most of which are indie titles thanks to these bundles.

    Fantastic deal, not going to get this one as I already have Bastion and Psychonauts, and the other games don’t really interest me. To be honest it’s worth it for those two though, and I’m sure Amnesia and Limbo are brilliant if you like that sort of thing.

    Own them all already, but chipped in a little just to lend a smidgeon of support.
