Crack open your wallets folks - the Humble Indie Bundle 19 is here according to a news post on the Humble Blog.
Humble Bundle offers up bundles of digital products (and sometimes physical products) in a three-way split between Humble Bundle, the content creators, and charities. While they've put out bundles of AAA games, comics, and software, some of their most notable bundles (and arguably their flagship series) are those that feature indie games. The Humble Indie Bundle 19 is the latest in a long line of great deals on games and it's got some pretty awesome titles in it this time around.
Halcyon 6: Lightspeed Edition is the first game in the Pay What You Want tier. It's a lovely little game that is part space station management, part turn-based RPG. The derelict space station Halcyon 6 was simply one of many interstellar points of interest until a massive alien fleet decided to make a beeline directly for earth. Now the station is the best hope for defending Earth from these invaders. It's up to you to revive the sleeping station, explore worlds, and forge new alliances so you can keep the New Terran Federation from going under. The Lightspeed Edition includes the original game along with all of its DLC and some additional improvements to the base game.
Next up in the Pay What You Want tier is Mini Metro, a game that has a rather straightforward name as you'll be building a mini metro. You're in charge of a city's subway system and it's up to you to plan out the lines to meet the needs of an ever-growing city. There's no complex city-building here, just a lovely game with colorful rail lines. This game includes Normal, Endless, and Extreme gameplay modes.
Rakuen is the last title in the Pay What You Want tier. A little boy lives in a hospital, and in this fantastical adventure game, he'll be heading to the fantasy world from his favorite storybook with his mother. His sole desire is to have a single wish granted by the Guardian of the Forst. To receive his wish, he must help his fellow neighbors in the hospital with their various problems.
Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes recently had a Mod Update which further enhances the possibility for blowing yourself up because you cut the wrong wire.The first game of the Pay More Than The Average tier is Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes, a game that's all about defusing bombs with asymmetrical information. One player is stuck in a room with an explosive device while the other player must pass them information about how to defuse it by completing a series of mini-games. Here's the catch - the expert and the bomb defuser can't see one another's information. I've played this game myself and found it a good bit of fun from either side.
SOMA is a science fiction survival horror game from the creators of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Set in the underwater facility Pathos III, you're one of a few remaining people that still have all of their marbles. Learn more about the horrors of Pathos III while dodging terrifying creatures, murderous robots, and humans that just aren't quite the same anymore. Check out our review of the game to read more about it.
Poly Bridge is the final title in the Pay More Than The Average Tier. In short, it's a cute little game about building bridges. Vehicles need to cross a span, and it's up to you to build something that can get them across without falling apart - all while keeping the cost below budget. The core game features a few dozen levels, and players who enjoy a challenge can try to work their way up the leaderboards for each of the individual levels by building better and better bridges.
More games will be coming to the Pay More Than The Average Tier in roughly 6 days. The last game on the list is SUPERHOT in the Pay $14 or More tier. In SUPERHOT, time only moves when you do. You'll be beset by enemies on all sides, but you have the advantage of taking plenty of time to figure out just exactly how you're going to brutally beat down twenty bad guys with a broken bottle and a few hastily confiscated weapons. Aside from the game's campaign, there are also opportunities to really test yourself through Challenge Mode or Endless Mode. You can see our thoughts on SUPERHOT by having a look at our review.
That's it for the Humble Indie Bundle 19! You have just over 13 days to pick these games up for a pretty solid discount. Head on over to the Humble Bundle website to check out the Humble Indie Bundle 19 if you want to snap it up before it's gone.
