TR Member Perks!

Update: While we weren’t looking it seems another game has been added, this being co-op beat ’em up Dusty Revenge. Additionally, Double Fine Adventure has been added to the bundle, this being a documentary that details the creation of The Broken Age.

Update 2: Two more games have been added to the bundle! One is action RPG/card game hybrid Hand of Fate, which you can read our review of here. The second game is classic styled SHMUP Super Galaxy Squadron EX. This brings the current content count to 57 games, 8 books, 1 movie, and 1 music album.

Update 3: Even more! The System Shock Pack, which contains both System Shock Enhanced Edition and System Shock 2 has been added to the bundle. 59 games now.

To say the Humble Freedom Bundle has been a success is a bit of an understatement. The bundle blew past its $300,000 goal (which Humble matched the donations to) in only an hour and a half and has now made over 4 million to donate to the three charities split based on how each donor wants between the ACLU, Doctors Without Borders, and the International Rescue Committee. It’s easy to see why: The original bundle contained 40 games and 7 books for the low price of $30. Well, Humble is now seeking to sweeten the deal, as 15 more games, another book, and a music album have been added.

As before, it would be overkill to describe every game in the bundle. As such, here’s a list of the 15 new games added, along with links to any reviews we may have of the game:

  • Guns of Icarus Online
  • Q.U.B.E.: Director’s Cut (Our Review)
  • Rituals
  • Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble
  • TIMEframe
  • JumpJet Rex (Our Review)
  • Potatoman Seeks the Troof (Our Review)
  • Ballistick
  • GRAV (Early Access)
  • Team Indie
  • Luna’s Wandering Stars
  • Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken
  • Chroma Squad (Our Review)
  • Shütshimi (Our Review)
  • Beat Hazard Ultra

In addition to this, they also added a new book in the form of Hands-On Intro to Game Programming, by Chris DeLeon. There’s also the bundle’s only album, Color Sky, by Ben Prunty, which is based off the music of FTL: Faster Than Light.

While the addition of new games is great, anyone buying the bundle now is missing out on one game, as Humble has run out of codes for early access underwater survival game Subnautica. They have also run out of Steam codes for Super Meat Boy, though a DRM-Free download is still available for the game. Earlier in the day they were also out of codes for Monster Loves You!, but it appears they have gotten more of those.

Regardless, there are now 54 games, 8 books, and a music album all available for $30. It’s a crazy deal that is worth jumping on.

    Still not interested in letting my money go towards the ACLU, and now anyone who willingly put their games into this.

  • Jean-Francois Fiset

    You can choose to send the money only to the other 2 if you want.

  • AgentBJ09

    Still not interested, as I said. I’ll just use the list as a who’s who of who not to support from now on.

  • Louis

    I’m willing to give some of these folks the benefit of the doubt and split it between “people who knew and put their games into this” and “people who put their games into this because supporting charity sounds good”. That said, it’s still a fine line.

  • DynastyStar

    Whats ACLU?

  • Jean-Francois Fiset

    Google is your friend.

  • GrimFate

    I had a problem with the ACLU, but I can’t remember why… Nevertheless, when I bought this bundle I just chose to split the money evenly between the other 2 charities.

  • BurntToShreds

    Damn. Kind of wish I bought it today instead of Monday. Or did they add the games to everyone’s Humble Bundle library regardless of when they purchased it? Gonna check on that.

  • Jean-Francois Fiset

    Yep, they added the games 😀

  • BurntToShreds

    Nice! Thanks for the info.

  • American Civil Liberties Union. They’re best known for stepping up to defend *most* of people’s civil liberties in court battles where other people wouldn’t. Notably, they don’t really support the 2nd amendment of the Constitution (guns), and that loses them a good deal of support from people (including myself).

  • FWIW that’s how all bundles work. If they add stuff later, it gets added to your bundle page if you already bought it.

  • Same, their lack of support for the second amendment alone is enough for me. It’s brilliant that they fight so hard for stuff like the first and fourth, but if they’re going to selectively defend civil liberties they won’t get a penny from me.

    They essentially state that the rights in the Constitution are individual rights except for the second amendment. Then they say that’s a collective right dependent on being in a militia. This, by the way, goes against case law on the matter all the way up to the Supreme Court as well as the original intention of the amendment as written in the Federalist Papers (surrounding documentation, essays, etc. that explain the reasoning behind the Constitution). And, you know, basic reading of it.

    Also, in b4 “guns aren’t a civil right”. Civil right = right of a citizen, and the second amendment absolutely is.


  • AgentBJ09

    It’s because they’re selective about what constitutes civil liberties. They play partisan when it suits them, and it shows. Giving support to illegals residents, criminals and otherwise, is just another reason why for me.

    Just as well, games are luxuries and not necessary for anyone. I’ve got no problem hardlining Humble itself here either.

  • AgentBJ09

    Hence why I’m drawing the hard line here. Games are luxury items and I can live without Humble.

  • DynastyStar

    Yeah, I was also hoping an answer on what they dislike about the ALCU, asshat. So wipe that smug grin off your face because no amount of google-fu will tell me what their gripes are unless I reply to them myself.

  • DynastyStar

    Is there anything else I should be on the lookout when it comes to them beside them not supporting the 2nd ammendment?

  • AFAIK that’s the big one, though I’m sure they’ve made other mistakes as well.

  • Jean-Francois Fiset

    I’m sorry, all I see is “What’s ACLU?”. Maybe there is a bug and I can’t see the whole question you wrote. Thanks for the polite response by the way 🙂

  • DynastyStar

    Well in the future, don’t be a smartass with your bullshit “Google is your friend” nonsense. You’ll come across as less of a moron next time.
