The newest from Humble – the Humble Gems Bundle 2 – is a wierd grab-bag of simple indie suggestions, protecting the gamut from 16-bit horror journey, a cat-cafe relationship sim and certainly one of my favorite action-roguelikes lately. With eight video games spanning a bafflingly broad vary of genres, there’s one thing right here for almost everybody.
The minimal of $1 gives you:
- The Count Lucanor
- Hustle Cat
Beating the typical ($6.40 at current) will internet you:
- Slayaway Camp
And the total $10 (or increased) will get you:
It’s a wierd choice with no actual unifying theme apart from being good video games, so here is a fast run-down of what you are getting:
The Count Lucanor is a horror journey recreation impressed by the darker aspect of previous fairy tales, drawing mechanical inspiration from a broad vary of classics equivalent to Silent Hill and Yume Nikki. Hustle Cat is a really extremely rated romantic visible novel about working at a magical cat-cafe, and allows you to choose each the gender and romantic desire of the protagonist, so there’s smooches for everybody.
Tattletail is a first-person horror recreation about surviving the night time whereas being stalked by a sentient, probably murderous Furby-esque toy. While it clearly takes some inspiration from Five Nights At Freddy’s, the free-roaming nature provides Tattletail its personal really feel. Pinstripe, whereas ostensibly horror-themed, is a considerably extra easygoing platform journey with a vein of depraved humor operating via it about coping with your inside demons – clearly much less scary than Furbies.
Slayaway Camp is a block-sliding puzzle recreation about being the villain of an 80s slasher horror film. Carefully choose your strikes, and (actually) bump off each sexy teenager you will discover, whereas avoiding threats equivalent to armed police. Apotheon is a platform motion recreation set on the planet of Greek delusion and legend, held along with a beautiful and distinctive artwork fashion; The complete recreation is rendered within the type of a standard Amphora portray.
In the $10 bracket, you get Has-Been Heroes, a novel little RPG/puzzle factor from Frozenbyte, builders of the Trine sequence. Part Plants Vs Zombies lane-control, half Darkest Dungeon, you handle a celebration of heroes regularly marching into hazard, making an attempt to match up the precise individual and the precise ability to deal with no matter threats stand in your path.
Personally, my high choose of the bundle goes to Alientrap’s Cryptark. This is a current private favorite, and a simple suggestion as long as you don’t thoughts a bit little bit of high-intensity twin-stick taking pictures. Cryptark is a tactical roguelike shooter, the place you pilot a mech via derelict alien spacecraft, disabling subsystems and safety drones within the hopes of efficiently salvaging the ship and turning a revenue.
While no slouch in both graphics and audio, Cryptark’s best power lies in its cleverly scaling issue – cash makes the galaxy go spherical, and if you’d like the next payout and the next rating on the finish, you’ll have to chop corners and full hazardous optionally available goals. Sure, this subsequent mission is a cakewalk for those who’re simply breaking even in your tools loadout, however for those who low-cost out, convey rather less ammo or ditch the vitality defend, revenue margins soar whereas your life expectancy plummets.
The Humble Gems 2 bundle will probably be out there till Friday, October 13th. Make certain you get your spooks in early.
