This week’s Humble Bundle sale stars 11 bit Studios, developer of Anomaly Warzone Earth, which also happens to be the headline game. The DRM-free, cross-platform, pay-what-you-want package also includes Anomaly Warzone Earth: Mobile Campaign, Sleepwalker’s Journey, Funky Smugglers and – for those who pay more than average – a bonus copy of Anomaly Korea and a pile of digital content.
