The Best Humble Indie Bundle Yet Includes Bastion and Psychonauts
The Humble Indie Bundles, which are sold for any price the customer decides, are great for a variety of reasons: They allow the spotlight to be placed upon a small number of indie games, they get games in the hands of gamers for almost no money (depending upon how generous they’re feeling), and they support charity. While they may also devalue games, as they get gamers in the mindset of potentially being able to pay a single penny for a handful of games worth many, many times that, there are still clearly many upsides to them. With that in mind, the latest Humble Indie Bundle — launched just earlier today — might very well be the best we’ve ever seen.
Despite being referred to as The Humble Indie Bundle V, there have been more than four in the past when accounting for the Frozen Synapse, Frozenbyte, Introversion, and Android bundles, among others. The best of these, in my opinion, was the fourth one, which included Super Meat Boy, Jamestown, Bit Trip Runner, Shank, NightSky, and, for those who exceeded the average sale price, Cave Story+ and Gratuitous Space Battles. Soundtracks for these games ended up being released to buyers, too, as were the games included in the third Humble Bundle. Not too shabby.
