Humble Indie Bundle V

Last night before I went to sleep, Totalbiscuit of CynicalBrit suddenly tweeted "@Totalbiscuit: If you like indie games you might wanna hold onto a bit of cash today. Something HUGE is coming". Then bam! An epic Humble Indie Bundle.

This bundle is so far the best indie bundle this season, featuring 4 epic games and a new, quite promising indie title:

  • Amnesia: The Dark Descent - Frictional Games' first-person, survival horror masterpiece, pitting a weaponless protagonist against the darkest secrets of the castle he's trapped in. With an emphasis on puzzle-solving and maintaining sanity amidst unspeakable abominations, Amnesia's tense adventure breaks new ground for a well-loved, but challenging genre.
  • LIMBO - The captivating puzzle-platformer LIMBO is a modern classic, putting players in control of a boy's journey through a tense and hostile world. The protagonist is as fragile and hardy as you'd expect of a young kid, making for a novel and sometimes surprisingly intense adventure.
  • Psychonauts - Bears all the marks of a mad Tim Schafer/Double Fine creation: a zany premise, standout characters, and fun-above-all gameplay. You play as Raz, a psychically gifted kid at a summer camp-slash-training facility for mentalist super agents. When the camp falls to a dastardly deception, it's up to Raz to traverse through the minds of various camp characters to save himself and his friends.
  • Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP - Delivers a completely fresh adventure gaming experience, defying conventions to develop a unique kind of storytelling. The plot is unveiled in "sessions," each of which involves traveling through the countryside and solving puzzles and combat challenges. Every scene overflows with rich graphic and auditory details, featuring distinctive artwork by Superbrothers Inc. and music and sound design by Jim Guthrie.

If you pay at least $7.52 you will also get:

  • Bastion - Won over the gaming public with its incredible attention to every detail—from the tight combat controls, to the inspired, narrator-driven storytelling in a novel, post-apocalyptic fantasy world. Players take on the role of the Kid, entrusted with the thankless task of restoring the world after a disastrous calamity. With a none-too-small arsenal of stylized weapons, jaw-dropping art, and amazing music, Bastion truly deserves its reputation as a must-play indie game by Supergiant Games.

Although I already got these games (except Sword &am; Sworceryh, it's still a buy! Having these DRM-free and cross-platform games is great. Also, this bundle includes the soundtracks of all the games in the bundle (sweet! -ed). The summer sale is coming and yet these great indie bundles are already draining the gamers' wallets! I'm really excited to play Sword & Sworcery today. If you buy this bundle, you can either split the money between the developers, charities (EFF, Child's Play) or Humble Bundle, Inc. So, how about we give this bundle a try? (amen, brother! -ed)
