TR Member Perks!

Humble Bundle has teamed up with various indie developers to create a new bundle of games. Dubbed the “Humble Nindie Bundle”, the “pay what you want” bundle has games for both the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

Currently, the default bundle includes Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition (Wii U), Whoa Dave! (3DS), and Mighty Switch Force (3DS). Those that pay more than $10 USD will also receive Stealth Inc 2 (Wii U) and SteamWorld Dig (Wii U/3DS). Paying more than the average ($9.23 USD as of this writing) grants The Fall (Wii U), OlliOlli (Wii U/3DS), Moon Chronicles Episode 1 (3DS), and more games that will be added Tuesday June 2nd at 11:00am Pacific.

Humble Bundle notes that without the bundle, the announced games would normally cost $88 USD.

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition describes itself as “a Metroidvania-style action-platformer set in a magical world inspired by traditional Mexican culture and folklore.” Whoa Dave! is an arcade-style platformer with the goals of fighting aliens and collecting coins. Mighty Switch Force! is a side-scrolling platformer about a futuristic police officer. Stealth Inc 2 is a platformer with various puzzles as a clone escapes a “sinister and high-tech testing facility”. Steamworld Dig describes itself as “a platform mining adventure with strong Metroidvanian influences”. The Fall is a side-scroller with puzzle elements starring an AI controlling a combat suit while the pilot is unconscious after a crash. OlliOlli is a platforming game where the player is on a skateboard and must pass obstacles while doing tricks. Moon Chronicles Episode 1 is a sci-fi FPS featuring on foot and vehicle combat.

As with all Humble Bundles, any proceeds will go to both the developers and to a charity, in this case, a non-profit that advocates and works for increased computer science participation in schools. A Humble Tip will also go to Humble Bundle themselves to cover server costs. Buyers are free to proportion the money however they wish.

Unlike previous Humble Bundles, these games are not region free. The only regions eligible for the bundle are North America and South America (Excluding Brazil). The bundle can be purchased on Humble Bumble’s website.
