GOG’s Spring Insomnia Sale is still running, and even if it’s an interesting concept, the novel concept is wearing off. Despite some genuinely great offers, the scarce amount of free games and the restocking of past ones are a bit disappointing, even if it’s a great way for people who missed those which sold out in near seconds (a sight worth watching it for, anyway).
But there also other great ways to get games for less than they sell in retail or at the developers’ websites for an often fixed price. One such way has always been Humble Bundle. It has been a while since I last wrote about them (mainly due to time constraints, lots of reviews, and of course Indie Royale), but now it’s time to cover which offers they have.
The Humble Daily Bundle can be found on their main page and starts with the Deep Silver Bundle. Some might already have that, but it’s a great opportunity for those who haven’t, and who knows what tomorrow or the days after will bring? It ends today, Wednesday, May 14 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
Every week Humble Bundle have a Humble Bundle Weekly Sale, and this time it’s with some classic conversions by Night Dive Studios. For just paying a minimum of 1 Dollar, you get RPGs Wizardry 6: Bane of the Cosmic Forge, Wizardry 7: Crusaders of the Dark Savant and horror action-adventure Shadow Man. Paying 5 Dollars or more unlocks point-and-click horror adventures I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream and Harvester plus FMV adventure The 7th Guest.
If you want to play the sequel The 11th Hour and also get Wizardry 8 and the timeless action-RPG-adventure System Shock 2, it’s a bit more: 9 dollars.
As is usual with Humble Bundles, there is also a fair amount of bonus content like soundtracks or in the case of Shadow Man a comic. The games are often DRM-free and include Steam codes as extras, but as Night Dive Studios focus on Steam distribution, there are no separate downloads here. Still, the selection of games is quite good. Some have already been covered in individual articles here, and they’re definitely classics in their own rights which have to be played at least once in order than one gets to know a bit about gaming history. So don’t wait any longer before the Weekly Bundle changes into the next one tomorrow.
This has already been running for over a week and it’s therefore halfway finished, but still worth mentioning. Until May 21, the Humble Spring Sale has daily discounts starting at 10 AM Pacific Time. In addition, there are various flash sales which offer some games for a very cheap price. With a wide range of titles, often DRM-free games and an interesting mix of AAA, classic and indie games, this one is worth checking out the Humble Store for each day.
