If you were sitting on the fence over Humble Indie Bundle V, the addition of three new games might just tip you over to the other side.
The bundle now includes eight games — and, if you pay just US$8.12 (at the time of writing), they're all yours.
Included in the standard package, as described by HumbleBundle.com, are:
Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP: delivers a completely fresh adventure gaming experience, defying conventions to develop a unique kind of storytelling. The plot is unveiled in "sessions", each of which involves travelling through the countryside and solving puzzles and combat challenges. Every scene overflows with rich graphic and auditory details, featuring distinctive artwork by Superbrothers Inc, and music and sound design by Jim Guthrie
Limbo: the captivating puzzle-platformer Limbo is a modern classic, putting players in control of a boy's journey through a tense and hostile world. The protagonist is as fragile and hardy as you'd expect of a young kid, making for a novel and sometimes surprisingly intense adventure. With incredibly tight platforming, detailed 2D graphics, and well-designed puzzles, Limbo has rightfully earned critical and popular acclaim for the Danish indie studio, Playdead
Amnesia: The Dark Descent: Frictional Games' first-person, survival horror masterpiece, pitting a weapon-less protagonist against the dark secrets of the castle he's trapped in. With an emphasis on puzzle solving and maintaining sanity amidst unspeakable abominations, Amnesia's tense adventure breaks new ground for a well-loved, but challenging genre
Psychonauts: the acclaimed action-platformer Psychonauts bears all the marks of a mad Tim Schafer/Double Fine creation — a zany premise, standout characters and fun-above-all gameplay. In Psychonauts, you play as Raz, a psychically gifted kid at a summer camp/training facility for mentalist super agents. When the camp falls to a dastardly deception, it's up to Raz to traverse through the minds of various camp characters to save himself and his friends.
If you pay more than the average price, you also get:
Bastion: the action RPG Bastion won over the gaming public with its incredible attention to every detail, from the tight combat controls to the inspired, narrator-driven storytelling in a novel, post-apocalyptic fantasy world. Players take on the role of the Kid, entrusted with the thankless task of restoring the world after a disastrous calamity. With a none-too-small arsenal of stylised weapons, jaw-dropping art and amazing music, Bastion truly deserves its reputation as a must-play indie game by Supergiant Games
Lone Survivor: a psychological survival adventure, with art, design, and music by the one-man studio, Superflat Games. The surgical mask-wearing protagonist has survived a disaster, and must now face the world's twisted creatures, as well as the potential unravelling of his own mind
Braid: challenges players to solve incredibly clever platforming puzzles by manipulating the flow of time. It released to near-universal praise, surprising audiences with its refreshing gameplay, while also upending notions about game design and independent game development. As part of Humble Indie Bundle 2, and now Humble Indie Bundle V, Braid is absolutely a must-play among must-plays
Super Meat Boy: what you get when you mould a little man out of ground meat and put him in a world full of tricky gaps, slides and hazards. Plan to perish many times in the course of saving Bandage Girl from Dr Fetus, but prepare to bask in the glory of pulling off impossible platforming feats, unlocking secret characters and triumphing over 300+ levels.
Remember that you can also allocate a portion (or all!) of the money you spend to go to the Child's Play charity (although we think that the devs deserve something for their hard work, too).
Happy playing, and happy long weekend.
