Daily News - 13th December 2011 - Incredible Humble Indie Bundle and VGA Announcements And Winners

This Humble Indie Bundle Is The Best One Yet.

The Humble Indie Bundle is usually an incredible bargain, but this one, goes above and beyond. This Humble Indie Bundle contains arguably the best games yet, and all for the cheap, cheap price of £however-much-you-want. The list of games in the bundle reads like a who's who of amazing indie titles, with almost every single one loved by critics. Read the list, and prepare yourself:

  • Super Meat Boy - One of the best games I've ever played
  • Jamestown - A game universally loved by critics
  • Shank - Gorgeous, hand-drawn 2D sidescrolling beat-em-up
  • Cave Story+ - The original Cave Story is an almost legendary Metroid-esque game
  • Bit.Trip Runner - The best of the Bit.Trip games and a nice, hard, rhythm-based platformer
  • Gratuitous Space Battles - Epic, fleet-based space battles with online multiplayer!
  • NightSky HD - A puzzle game with a style similar to Limbo

To be honest, if this bundle were JUST Super Meat Boy, or JUST Jamestown, or JUST Shank and then the rest of the game's were poo I'd still recommend this bundle, but to have them all and for less than £4?!? Dudes and dudettes, just fucking buy this now. Come on, don't be cunt. It's for charity and everything. Buy the fucker!!!

Honestly, it would be worth it for just Super Meat Boy alone
