My personal take
Twelve games for the price of Bloodstained! What can go wrong?
For one, Humble keeps including for this month a game that is available on Steam, but is only delivered as a GOG key.
Unfortunately, GOG is a shop of questionable ethics (yes, we still remember when they announced their shutting down and then went BAZINGA you fell for another of our terrible practical jokes, and we won’t stop bringing it up), owned and run by people with questionable political leanings and associations.
So, yeah, it’s not just that most people like Steam better, it’s also that GOG and CD Projekt not only make no real effort to distance themselves from bigoted and hateful stances, they actually are all smug about it and actively revel in their smugness. They’re not naive little quirky folks, they’re part of the problem.
And that’s too bad, because Encodya looks like it could be a good game.
And the rest of the line-up, too, looks good, comprised of mostly unbundled games and including a couple of well-rated co-op games, first person puzzler Superliminal, RTS Cepheus Protocol and the whimsical Carto.
Even the few names I’ve just dropped are worth, at a very minimum, over twice the price of the Premium subscription, so this looks an uncontroversially good deal. YMMV, as usual.
