Last week the multi-platform Humble Bundle launched, giving gamers a great opportunity to expand their game collection whilst directly rewarding the game’s developers and their chosen charities. All games included in the bundle are available to download for Android, PC, Mac and Linux.
Initially the bundle included the fantastic Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Eufloria, Splice, Crayon Physics Deluxe and graduate of Steam Greenlight, Waking Mars, along with their soundtracks. Those who paid more than the average also grabbed Machinarium.
So far so good, but the folks who put the bundle together haven’t stopped there and have added even more titles to the bundle for those that pay over the average, which is currently a rather measly £4. All this means you can now grab eleven fantastic DRM-free titles for your PC, Mac, Linux or Android device direct from the Humble Bundle site.
Swords & Soldiers HD
Swords & Soldiers HD is a vibrant, side-scrolling strategy game. Players must spawn the right units to gather resources and overrun the opponent’s base. Three diverse factions, multiplayer, and challenge modes provide gobs of colourful gameplay.
Cogs is a much-lauded 3D puzzle game that gives the player mechanical structures that need to be fixed in order to function properly. The puzzles involve creating the right arrangement of gears, pipes, and other Victorian-esque technologies in order to strike bells, turn propellers, and channel steam.
Canabalt is an indie parkour platformer by Adam Saltsman. It involves running through a city during an alien invasion and jumping from rooftop-to-rooftop.
Avadon: The Black Fortress
Avadon: The Black Fortress is the RPG fantasy saga from Jeff Vogel’s Spiderweb Software, an indie studio well-known for sprawling experiences and intricate plots. It layers on the best of classic RPG elements to create a true epic: four classes, hundreds of items, dozens of spells and abilities, secret quests, and multiple endings.
Zen Bound 2
Zen Bound 2 is a ground-breaking, meditative puzzler that defies convention. Players are given a wooden figurine, which must be wrapped in twine through a process of creative rotation. The twine triggers splashes of paint that cover the ornament, and players are loosely rewarded for using as little twine as possible to cover the object.
