Humble Bundle’s never ending quest to fill up PC gamer’s backlog continues, and this time they’re playing with developer Telltale Games, offering both current and past games by the now huge developer.

The first level, which you can get as cheap as a dollar, includes six games. First up is Back to the Future: The Game, Telltale’s love letter to the famous Back to the Future movies. Here you must play as Marty McFly and discover why the DeLorean Time Machine has reappeared without anyone driving it. Next up is Sam & Max: Devil’s Playhouse, Telltale’s third run at the Sam & Max series and the series’ most recent entry. The third game is the Sam & Max/Team Fortress 2/Penny Arcade/Homestar Runner poker crossover game Poker Night at the Inventory. Following that is a bundle that includes Puzzle Agent and Puzzle Agent 2. Both games follow an agent from the U.S. Department of Puzzles that must solve mysteries by, well… solving puzzles. Finally the last game in the first tier is The Walking Dead – Season 1, the game that arguably put Telltale on the map for the general populace. By signing up for this tier you’ll also get a 10% coupon for the Humble Monthly Bundle if you haven’t signed up for it in the past.

The second tier requires you to beat the average (presently at $8.18), and it includes three games and some DLC for one of the earlier games. The DLC would be The Walking Dead: 400 Days. This is a sixth episode for the first season that helps tie the two seasons together. The first actual game available is The Wolf Among Us where you play as Bigby Wolf as he investigates a murder in Fabletown. You can read our review of that game if you’re interested in more. The second game is the second absurd poker crossover Poker Night 2. This one includes characters from Borderlands, Sam & Max, Portal, Venture Bros., and Army of Darkness. Finally, you can also get Tales from the Borderlands in this tier. A recent game by Telltale, here you get to be entertained by the absurd yet deadly world of Borderlands. You can read our review of it here. As usual for the beat the average tier, more games will be added in a week.

The last tier requires a flat price of $12 and adds on two more recent Telltale games. First is Game of Thrones, Telltale’s take on the extremely popular TV series/book that has been taking the world by storm. We have a review of this game as well. The second game is The Walking Dead – Season 2, the follow-up to the extremely popular first game. This is another game we have reviewed.

Not interested in Telltale’s games? That’s okay, as the Humble Staff Pick Bundle from last week is still going. Even better, two new games have been added to it. You now also get Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered and Knight Squad with the bundle. Fahrenheit is an earlier story-driven game from 2005 and one of Quantic Dream’s first big hits. Knight Squad is an arena-based party game for up to eight players to mess around in.
