Today is a great day. Why, you ask? Because the Humble Indie Bundle program just announced something awesome: their first ever Humble Bundle to include Android versions of 5 excellent games. First, let me tell you about the Humble Indie Bundle:
The Humble Bundle Inc. puts together gaming bundles which feature notorious indie games which are “donated” by their respective developers. The bundle is then sold with a name-your-own-price model and you get to decide where the money goes — to the developers, to Humble Bundle Inc. (so they can continue doing what they do), or to charity (or to all three). So not only is it a good cause (if you direct your money toward charity), but it’s also a great way to get some excellent games on the cheap! What’s more, the games are cross-platform, DRM-free, and redeemable on Steam if you’re that sort of gamer.
All Humble Bundle games have been cross-platform for PC/Mac/Linux, but this is the first time where Android versions of all the games are included as well.
The list of games for this bundle includes nothing but award-winning heavy-hitters:
- Anomaly Warzone Earth HD by 11 Bit Studios (rated 4.5 stars on the Android Market)
- Edge by Mobigame (rated 4.5 stars)
- Osmos by Hemisphere Games (rated 4.5 stars)
- World of Goo* by 2D Boy (rated 5 stars)
*World of Goo is only unlocked if you pay more than the average price paid for the bundle, which currently sits at $5.47
I’ve played all of these except Anomaly, and can confirm that they are great games. Did I mention that the soundtracks come along with the purchase as well? Really, you can’t go wrong here. Of course you should try these demos first to ensure the full games will run acceptably on your Android device. This is a limited offer which will only run for another 14 days. What are you waiting fo? Get ’em while they’re hot!
