This Tuesday: Humble Indie Bundle 21 \o/ …but it’s not for me
Click for group version
My personal take
If you’re an old hand like me - it’s hard not to be happy seeing the revered Humble Indie Bundle enter its 21st lap.
Even more, for it marks the return of “second week unlocks!” - can’t say how much of a relief this is: I had honestly considered removing that bit of code entirely.
If you’re an old hand like me… this bundle may also not be exactly for you. It’s a great bundle, make no mistake. Just not necessarily for me or you.
Buck tier comes with the absolutely amazing Hotline Miami, I played some of it last year and it’s still as mind-bendingly great as it was in 2012 as far as I’m concerned. And it comes with the lovely precision platformer Dustforce DX. With a couple of greatest hits like these, you’d be excused if you’re wondering what the hell is Beat Cop doing there as well: let’s just agree to not being needlessly picky.
Beat the average is a slightly tougher sell, at this time; see: Moonlighter and Gato Roboto are both very good games, but Moonlighter was a Monthly headliner and Gato Roboto, well, the usual people who must have all the subscriptions have it already!
What about the top layer of the cake ? Geocities-era mock-Internet Sim Hypnospace Outlaw is the big catch here; Starbound is also there: it’s a great survival’em, which I loved playing and is genuinely better than Terraria, in my book. Different, but better.
So Hypnospace Outlaw is definitely the one you’re most likely to not have. And it almost carries the whole bundle on its own. Almost! Add Gato Roboto and I would say it’s honestly good value.
Where it does turn into actual overkill is you’re NOT a wizened stockpiler of games. And that I think is why I can be very happy about this bundle while not entertaining seriously the idea of buying for myself.
