Humble Bundle V organizers have added Lone Survivor, Braid, and Super Meat Boy to what in our opinion is the best indie bundle yet. The bundle already includes: Bastion, Limbo, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Psychonauts, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent as well as the soundtracks, but if you pay over the current average price – $7.98 at press time – you’ll get all the above. Those who already purchased the bundle, will get the additions as well. So far, 435,891 bundles have been sold, generating $3,340,127.23 and counting.

The latest Humble Bundle is rather kick-ass, if we say so ourselves. It comes with Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Bastion, Limbo, Psychonauts, and Sword & Sworcery as well as soundtracks. Right now you can pay what you want to get all the games, save Bastion which require you to pay over the average which is now at $6.39. As time progresses, surprise additions will be added. There’s a video for it below as well to help convince you, as if Amnesia wasn’t enough in our opinion.

Prior to their embrace of ever-reliable menus, Supergiant thought it would be cool if Bastion players upgraded their gear through gardening.

A US airman in Afghanistan going by the name of Richard on Reddit, was given a really great present by Supergiant Games in the form of Bastion on disc. According to the military fellow, the internet speeds where he is deployed are terrible, and after trying to purchase the game through both Steam and D2D, he gave up, and wrote the developer to see if a retail copy would be released soon. In response, the studio’s creative director Greg Kasavin sent Richard an email stating that while there were no plans to release the game on disc, he was making an exception for him, considering the situation. Kasavin’s only request, was that Richard purchase the game through Steam when he finally gets to return home. Kudos, to Supergiant. This was very nice thing to do, indeed. Thanks, Neowin.
