TR Member Perks!

For $12 a month you can sign up for the Humble Monthly Bundle, which delivers a pack of games to you on the first Friday of every month. This month’s games are in, and it includes some strategy, some typing, and a healthy helping of robots.

First up is the Humble Monthly Preview game, which you get as soon as you buy the bundle. This month it was SOMA, a horror game where you’re trapped in an underwater research facility with a bunch of killer robots. You can read our review of it here.

Epistory (3)

Epistory – Typing Chronicles

The bundle has five other Steam games included in it. First up is The Banner Saga, a tactical strategy RPG where you need to guide a group of Vikings away from a war and to a new home. You can read our review of it here. Next is WWE 2K16, a wrestling game that focuses on Stone Cold Steve Austin’s career, and has a rather authentic fighting system. We have a review of WWE 2k16 as well. The third game is Sheltered, a survival game where you must explore a post-apocalyptic wasteland and partake in turn-based combat to keep you and your family alive. The fourth game is Epistory – Typing Chronicles. A game where you ride a giant two-tailed fox, typing words to defeat enemy bugs while solving environmental puzzles. You can read our positive review of the game here. Finally, you’ll also get Town of Salem. A take on party games like Werewolf and Mafia, Town of Salem sees you trying to catch killers, or kill other players.

The Humble Monthly Bundle also includes an exclusive demo this time. Players will get an exclusive look at The Uncertain – Episode 1: The Last Quiet Day, an episodic adventure game about a robot who is overly curious about the now-extinct humans.
