Humble Bundle is back at it again with The Humble Very Positive Bundle, a bundle of games that all share a "Very Positive" Review Score on Steam.

The Pay What You Want tier has a variety of genres represented:

  • Super Mega Baseball by Metalhead Software Inc. is a cartoonish baseball game with local co-op support for up to four players.
  • The Deadly Tower of Monsters Special Edition by ACE Team and ATLUS, a game where players star in a retro future movie and blast their way through terrible space monsters with Action RPG gameplay.
  • They Bleed Pixels by Spooky Squid Games, a brutal action platformer with simple controls where players must navigate through a game world positively brimming with deadly traps and enemies.
The Beat The Average Tier has three games in it just like the previous tier and also includes an ARPG:
  • Hacknet by Team Fractal Alligator & Surprise Attack has players putting on their black hat in a hacking simulator as they try to discover the reasons behind the mysterious death of one of the world's greatest hackers.
  • Crashlands by Butterscotch Shenanigans has you taking on the role of a space trucker who has crashed onto an alien planet and must fight (and craft) his way through the world while fighting enemies with ARPG-style combat.
  • Underrail by Stygian Software is a turn-based isometric RPG where you must work your way through a post-apocalyptic underground rail system as one of the few remaining survivors of humanity.
Finally, we have two games in the Pay $10 or More Tier of The Humble Very Positive Bundle:
  • Stephen's Sausage Roll by Increpare Games is a simple 3D puzzle game where players endeavor to cook sausages. (No, really - the puzzles are all about trying to cook sausages.)
  • The Curious Expedition by Maschinen-Mensch, a roguelike expedition simulator set in the 19th century where players lead an expedition through a procedurally-generated world in search of fame and fortune.
If some of these games interest you, you have a bit over 12 days to pick up The Humble Very Positive Bundle.

Quick Take

Underrail has always interested me, but I've been hesitant to buy it only because I haven't been very good at working my way through classic turn-based RPGs like that. As for The Curious Expedition, quite a few people on staff at TechRaptor speak nothing but praise for the game so that's probably a good indicator that it would be a good thing to check out if it seems like the style of game you'd like to play.
