Returning to their roots with day four of their 14 days of bundles, Humble has decided to give people a second chance at a collection of up to eleven games from the Humble Indie Bundle 8 that happened…oh, about a year ago it looks like, so this is sort of an anniversary celebration. I personally like supporting indie developers, and even though I already own two of the games I decided to buy this bundle (if you want a copy of Thomas Was Alone or Little Inferno and you don’t want to buy the bundle, send me a note as I have an extra key to give away – first come, first serve basis). Here’s the complete list of games, in alphabetical order this time:

  • Awesomenauts (78%, 08/2012): 6-player MOBA
  • Capsized (80%, 04/2011): 2D platformer
  • Dear Esther (75%, 02/2012): Interactive story that’s more art than game
  • English Country Tune (~77%, 11/2011): Cerebral puzzle game; beat the average price
  • Hotline Miami (85%, 10/2012): Top-down 2D action (with lots of blood and death); beat the average price
  • Intrusion 2 (80%, 06/2012): Action platformer; beat the average price
  • Little Inferno (68%, 11/2012): Puzzle game involving fire – lots of fire
  • Oil Rush (67%, 01/2012): 3D hybrid RTS/Tower Defense game; beat the average price
  • Proteus (80%, 01/2013): An exploratory “experience game” with no clearly defined goals; beat the average price
  • Thomas Was Alone (77%, 11/2012): 2D puzzle-platformer with minimalist graphics, good voice-over, and a fun story
  • Tiny & Big: Grandpa’s Leftovers (75%, 06/2012): 3D platformer with graphics similar to Borderlands (sans violence); beat the average price

As you might guess given this is a revival of an indie bundle from a year ago, all of the games are at least a year old, but given these indie games are more about the experience than cutting edge graphics, they’re still worth a look. And as usual, your donation can go to charity, the developers, or Humble Bundle.

    Tiny & Big is NOT a 2D platformer. It's very 3D--the terrain is destructible. :)

    Sorry -- got stuck in the wrong dimension, as most "platformers" are 2D. :-)

    2D platformer just really implies side-scrolling, however they are usually done with 3D since ages.

    I tend to think of platformers as "jumping between platforms". Not all are 3D even today -- many indie titles are still 2D, though perhaps with a few aspects that are done using 3D techniques. Anyway, I use "platformer" as a genre in general, for better or worse, and I happen to have a soft spot in my cranky old gamer heart for platformers. Heh.

    Had a lot of these games already, but it was worth it for the two games I didn't yet. I can just send the duplicate Steam keys to some pals.

    This is the golden age of gaming right here. Everybody better enjoy it while it lasts.

    The bundles are so good for that... I've got to organize mine and figure out all the spare keys I've got for giving away, I know there's a bunch.

    Why are the hours so odd on these? I meant to pick this one up but missed it.
