Humble Mobile Bundle 5 and Humble Weekly Sale


It's a Humble Bundle double dose today for all you fans of great indie games. First up is the latest bundle for mobile games, Humble Mobile Bundle 5. This batch is full of particularly odd (in the best way) games:
  • Bag It! by Hidden Variable Studios: Anyone who has worked part time in a grocery store will have a leg up in this unique puzzle game, where knowledge of how to pack bags (heavy items on the bottom, duh) proves itself as a practical skill once again.
  • R-TYPE II by DotEmu: The classic scrolling shooter with a few new touches.
  • Aralon: Sword and Shadow by Crescent Moon Games: A fantasy RPG in the vein of Ravnesword and The Elder Scrolls, which makes sense, as those parties were involved in the creation of Aralon.
  • The Cave by Double Fine Productions: Double Fine has proven itself time and time again, and The Cave is one of their most criminally-overlooked games. You choose a team of three adventurers with unique abilities and explore a cave in all its puzzle-platforming glory.
  • The Room Two by Fireproof Games: Described as "a physical puzzler, wrapped in a mystery game, inside a beautifully tactile 3D world," you get your hands dirty to solves puzzles in a creepy setting.
  • Carcassonne by exozet: If board games on video games are your thing, you'll enjoy playing against either AI opponents or up to 4 other real life players.
  • Paper Monsters by Crescent Moon Games: A delightfully charming platformer. It's a classic walk-and-jump game with a cute cardboard protagonist, making it a great play for all ages.
  • R-TYPE by DotEmu: Can't get enough of R-TYPE? Go back to the original with this port.
  • Enviro-Bear 2010 by Captain Games: I know that goat simulator has been getting a lot of press recently, but let's not forget about the original animal-sim game. You know, the one where you're a bear and have to drive a car through the woods. Yeah, that one.
So that's the latest bundle. If you're a fan of Humble Bundles, though, you've probably notives that they offer Humble Weekly Sales which, as the name implies (or, rather, explicitly states), come out weekly. You should check them out each week, but this week's offering is really impressive. Six bucks gets you Thomas Was Alone (which recently surpassed one million total sales), Dustforce, VVVVVV, Cave Story+, Reus, and Limbo. Each of those are worth more than that price on their own. When you throw in Puzzle Bots, Cthulu Saves the World, Mutant Mudds Deluxe, Lone Survivor, and Element4l, the deal gets even sweeter. Plus, for just ten dollars, you also get the amazing Teslagrad (speaking of which, expect a review for it soon). Even with the added cost, that adds up to less than a dollar per game, a deal you can't beat.

With both the weekly and mobile bundles, you of course get to split your payment up how you wish, can donate to charity, and get soundtracks. If you've been waiting to pick up these critically-acclaimed games, you're running out of excuses!
