The Humble Bundle provides people who love to play video games with an excellent offer. Pay what you want. Decide how much of the money you spend goes to the game developers and how much goes to a charity. The current Humble Weekly Bundle is called Leading Ladies 2. It features games that have prominent female characters in them. At the time I am writing this blog, this Humble Bundle has 4 days left.
Pay what you want to get the first three games in the Bundle. Triune 2: Complete Story is a game of action, puzzles, and platforming. One of the playable characters is Zoya the Thief.
Lumino City is sequel to Lume. It begins where the first game left off. Lumi needs to explore the city in order to find out more about her Grandad. The game involves exploring, and players must figure out puzzling mechanisms.
Hack ‘n’ Slash is a puzzle action game that is about “hacking” (reprograming object properties, global variables, and creature behaviors in the game). The game is currently in early access.
Pay more than the average of $4.27 and you unlock two more games. A City Sleeps is an action game driven by an experimental hip hop / electronic soundtrack. The main character is a woman named Poe who uses ghost familiars to interact with the world.
The Marvellous Miss Take features Miss Sophia Take. Players must reclaim sculptures and paintings. The game involves stealth and distraction and combines a puzzle game with an action game.
Pay $12.00 or more, and you get two additional games. Gravity Ghost is a gravity hopper where players run, jump and orbit their way through a galaxy. There’s no killing, no dying, and no way to fail.
Sunset features the character Angela Burnes, and players discover her thoughts as they play the game. She is a US citizen at the end of the 1960’s who was inspired by the Black Power and civil rights movements. It is an adventure game.
As always, you get to choose how much of what you spend goes towards the developers and how much goes to a charity. This time, the charity is Girls Make Games. It is an educational company based in San Jose, California. They provide girls with access to knowledge thorough their games and programs, including their Girls Make Games summer camps and workshops.
