It's the first Friday of the month, so Humble Bundle's monthly bundle has been released! This month includes some Call of Duty, some party games, a bit of vampire hunting, and some mysterious puzzle platforming.
If you've been subscribed to the Humble Monthly Bundle then you already got the Humble Preview game, which is Call of Duty: Black Ops III - Multiplayer Starter Pack. This $15 game contains just the multiplayer portion of the most recent Call of Duty game. That said, you can upgrade to the full game at 67% off in the Humble Store until August 12th if you did get this.
There were seven other games included in this month's bundle. The first is The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut, a Diablo-styled action RPG that has you playing as the famous vampire hunter. This game is also a compilation of all three The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing games, including some new content as well. Next up is The Jackbox Party Pack 2, which is a pack of five party games such as Fibbage 2, Quiplash XL, and Bidiots. All the games are made to be played with your smartphone or tablet, so you don't need to get a bunch of controllers when you have your friends over.
The third game is early access 3D platformer Poi. A throwback to platformers of the 90's, in Poi you'll be exploring large worlds and swapping between different characters to get through challenges. Following that is Planet of the Eyes, a puzzle platformer about a robot investigating a mysterious planet. The game looks similar in design to indie hit Limbo. The last regular release is Starward Rogue, a top-down bullet hell/roguelite where you'll explore dungeons and fight robots. The Humble Bundle Monthly version of the game comes with some special additions, including a new special "HumbleBot" boss fight, a "Humble Mech" to pilot, and a new weapon that turns enemies into credits. You can watch our video review of Starward Rogue here.
The next game is the Humble Debut, a game that launches the same day that it's released into the Humble Monthly Bundle. That game is Random Access Murder, a multiplayer first person shooter where you get guns that cause enemies ram to fill up. The goal is to cause enough memory leaks and glitches so that the other player's robots crash.
The final game is the Humble Original, a game that is only acquirable in the Humble Monthly Bundle and nowhere else. This month its Disc Room, a dodge 'em up where you must enter rooms that spawn discs that attempt to kill you while you avoid them to move onto the next rooms.
As always the Humble Monthly Bundle is available on the first Friday of every month for $12.
Next month's bundle has had its preview game available for anyone who has bought into it. The preview game for the September bundle is SOMA, a first person horror game set under the water in a great lab. You can read our review of SOMA here.
