Humble Bundle has new kind of bundle going around called Humble Staff Picks, bundles that include games picked out by members of Humble Bundle’s staff. This time around they’re focusing on games picked out by Humble Bundle employee Glen, who is apparently the “office gargoyle”.
The first tier is paying a dollar or more and includes three games. Competitive first person multiplayer sword-fighting game Chivalry: Medieval Warfare allows players to partake in 32 player battles in various game modes. The second game available is Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons. This puzzle game sees you controlling two characters at one time in an emotional journey to save their sick father. You can read our review of Brothers – A Tale of Two Sons here. The last game offered in the $1 tier is Ultimate General: Gettysburg. This RTS sees you controlling thousands of troops at once as you relive the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War in a game which saw its mobile port get involved in some controversy when Apple decided to pull down anything with the confederate flag. It should be noted that the $1 tier also includes a 10% off coupon for the Humble Monthly Bundle which can nab you a copy of Mad Max.
The second tier is the beat the average tier (which, at the time of this writing, is $6.43) and it also includes three games. For this tier you’ll be starting off with dictator management sim Tropico 5. Here you’ll have to create and manage a city while removing political rivals and keeping the people under your control. Next up is GRAV, an early access third person survival game where you and your friends can team up to hunt monsters, collect resources, and build bases. Finally, the last game available in the beat the average tier is Victor Vran. This action RPG sees you becoming a demon hunter trying to explore a cursed city. We have a review of Victor Vran up as well and generally thought it was a solid game. Much like past bundles, new games will be added to this tier next week.
The final $12 tier only includes a single game, that being Homeworld Remastered Collection. This contains remasters of both the original Homeworld and its sequel which are often considered two of the greatest RTS games ever made. We reviewed this game too if you want to know more about it.
As usual, Humble donates a portion of your choice to charities. This bundle gives the option to support Khan Academy, which is a non-profit organization devoted to teaching students anything from math to English. This bundle also supports the National Videogame Museum in Frisco, Texas. Of course, Humble Bundle also has the option to select your own charities to donate to via the Paypal Giving Fund.
The Humble Staff Picks Bundle: Glen is available for the next two weeks, with more games to be added next week.
