Humble Bundle V - Brings Great Deals on GamesWe at Fellow Geek love games. I'm willing to bet you do, too. Which is why we're so excited that the Humble Bundle, the best source of budget quality indie titles out there, is back with another bundle. This time they are featuring some of the better-known indie games out there, too, and one game that isn't actually indie.
In the Humble Indie Bundle V are Bastion, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Psychonauts, Limbo, and Sword and Sworcery EP. Every single one of these titles are incredible games (yes, I own all of them. No, not from the bundle) that elevate the art of games to levels rarely seen. And you get the soundtrack to each in both FLAC and MP3, too!
Bastion is a classic hack and slash game based in a post-apocalyptic floating world. It combines gorgeous graphics with a gritty aesthetic, and tells the tale of those who survived the end of the world.
Amnesia: The Dark Descent is considered to be one of the best horror games ever made. It combines great ambience with unseen enemies chasing you and true tension-generating moments. This isn't yet another Dead Space or Resident Evil game.
Psychonauts is Tim Schafer's masterpiece, a 3D platformer that takes place in the heads of those who are insane. The off-kilter sense of humor, the clever writing, and the classic gameplay make this one of the most interesting games you will ever play.
Limbo is a masterpiece in minimalism. Like Psychonauts, it is a platformer. But it is everything Psychonauts isn't. The game is almost entirely in shades of grey, the controls are a little loose, any you frequently find yourself in odd, strange situations. The game is told without level breaks, and if you are good, you can beat the entire game without once seeing a loading screen.
Finally, Sword and Sworcery EP is a strange game that places ambience and novelty above all else. Ostensibly it is an adventure game, but it is so much more than that title lets on about. Oh, and the pixel art is pixel perfect.
If you want to get in on the bundle, you can still get all of these games for less than $10.00. Like all Humble Indie Bundles, this is a pay what you want ordeal, and you can split the money however you want between the games' makers and charity.
