My personal take
The latest outing by Humble might not be exactly the strongest bundle ever to make it to the front page, however it makes up for that, by being one of the most intriguing I’ve seen in a while.
Humble returns to roots, showcasing a thematic selection of indie games, and secondly, it does so while avoiding the pitfall of repeating too many Humble Monthly or Choice games.
If like me, you had Castle Story on your wishlist, during the heyday of the indie wave, you might be surprised to see it headlining: and it’s a very pleasant surprise, even though last time I checked, the story of Castle Story didn’t quite pan out, and its ratings were quite low, something that doesn’t seem to have improved substantially.
Top tier also comes with Tales of Candlekeep (freebie alert), former Choice Mages of Mystralia and Speed Brawl, previously only in the COVID19 Charity Bundle. This isn’t a bad quartet, but also not one that will make believers, however it is redeemed by an unusually low price, $9.
BTA, yours for only about 5 bucks, is fatter thanks to new-to-bundles Light Fall, Crew 167 and Epic Manager, as well as bundle veterans Jotun: Valhalla Edition (freebie alert) and Knight Squad.
Finally, buck tier comes with roguelite Leap of Fate, and two local co-op party games, Aeolis Tournament and Toto Temple Deluxe.
Circling back to our opening conundrum, it’s not the most persuasive assembly of games out of Humble’s gates, although one I would rate as having plenty that’s interesting, and quite a few not never-before-bundled or lightly bundled games, to make it worth a second look for the indie aficionado.
This Humble is consciously priced, and will not break the bank: with some luck you might find the unacquired are in sufficient numbers to make the deal one worth hitting the Pay button for.
