If you are an avid gamer or even a developer, chances are that you know well about the Humble Bundle. If you aren’t either, let me bring you up to speed. The Humble Bundle is a charity based safe haven for gamers who want to try new games but do not have the money to do so, or for people that would like some games and contribute to charity at the same time. Essentially, it is this: Pay what you want to play and the money is split up three ways, a section to charity, a section to the developers, and a section to the people of The Humble Bundle. It’s a pretty good deal considering you can even pay a penny for a good catalogue of games. Starting this summer, the Humble Bundle introduced a new concept called the Humble Weekly Sale, featuring independent developers wishing to display their games to the public. So without further ado, let me introduce to you the Weekly sale that will take place from August 8, 2013 until August 15, 2013
Uplink by Introversion Software
Uplink is a game that puts you in the shoes of a hacker tasked to retrieve information from corporations with insidious intent. The game is an arcade puzzle solving adventure set on core mechanic gameplay. To unlock this game on The Humble Bundle, you will need to pay at least $1.00 and it unlocks: Uplink the game, Uplink’s Sountrack, and Uplink’s Sourcecode.
Darwina by Introversion Software
Darwina is a game that combines arcade combat and strategy into a retro style gaming experience. Praised by reviewers, this masterpiece received a metascore of 84 and is available with it’s soundtrack, and sourcecode to people who pay $1.00
Multiawinia: Survival of the Flattest
Multiwinia: Survival of the Flattest brings all of the fun that gamers had from Darwina to a multiplayer platform. Allowing 6 gameplay modes to up to four friends (or enemies), you can obliterate each other in the same retro style that won favor by both critics and fans. For just $1.00, you unlock the game, it’s sourcecode, and its soundtrack!
Defcon: Everybody Dies
Nuclear war is no game… not if Introversion Software has anything to say about it. Defcon: Everybody Dies places you in the shoes of a commander of your own territory having to make the decisions of who you get to nuke and which people you save. Let’s try to keep Matthew Broderick away from this one. Pay $1.00 to play this game, listen to its soundtrack and use its source code.
Prison Architect: Alpha
The featured game on the weekly bundle, Introversion’s Prison Architect is currently still in development. For $19.99 (A 33% discount off of the initial price), you can manage your own prison down to the simplest things like where you post your guards. Along with that, you get constant updates to the game and keep in contact with developers on where the game is going and even have your own feedback considered towards the final product! Sounds like a fair price for 20 bucks!
