Humble Indie Bundle 8

Active: May 28th, 2013 – June 12th, 2013


Once again we were just sitting there. Then, all of a sudden, we get a new bundle from Humble Bundle and are just blown away by the sheer magnitude of the games that make up this edition. All the games included in the bundle are DRM-free, meaning you can buy it and then put it on as many machines as you’d like. They’re also, as often as possible, available on multiple platforms. Meaning you can play them both on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. Alongside the games you also receive the soundtracks to some of the games, and if you pay at least $1 you’ll receive Steam keys.

The more interesting thing about these bundles are the payment details. The whole bundle is posted as “Pay What You Want”, so if you feel that all these games together are worth only €1 then you can pay that minute amount and still receive the bundle. However, you’re required to match, or pay more than, the average payment other people have made to get access to the entire bundle. Not only that, you’re also in control of how your payment is divided between the developers (even down to the individual developers of each game), the selected charities, and the Humble Bundle itself.

For the first time we can offer you insights on almost all the games in the bundle. While we have yet to play Dear Esther and couldn’t really understand Proteus, we can vouch for all the other titles and say that this is an amazing bundle. Hotline Miami was one of our favorites from season 1 of Experiments and both Awesomenauts and Thomas was alone are in the running for being Best of the Bunch in season 2
