Humble Bundle loses it, ushers in the end times

This is it. The end times are upon us. Humble Bundle has started offering its ridiculously thrifty packs on a daily basis. Empty your hard drives.


“Have we lost our minds?!” Humble wrote in an email announcing the scheme. Yeah, guys? Maybe.

Starting this morning, the bundle portal is offering a bundle every day for two weeks.

Happily for those of us whose hard drives are already brimming with cheap games, these bundles are mostly repeats – old favourites and success stories, with maybe a few extras thrown in to tempt you to part with your $5 again.

Today’s returning star is the Humble Deep Silver Bundle, which originally launched in July 2013. Pay what they want for Saints Row: The Third, Saints Row 2, Risen 2: Dark Waters and Sacred 2: Gold Edition. Beat the aeverage price for Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition, Saints Row: The Third – The Full DLC Package, Metro 2033, Risen and Sacred Citadel. Fork over $9 or more for Dead Island: Riptide – Complete Edition – well down from the $25 buy-in required the first time this bundle graced us.

This Deep Silver bundle is up until 11:00AM PT May 14, when it will be replaced by the next offer, which will last 24 hours before being replace – and so on and so on, for two whole weeks. Oh my god. I need a new HDD.

As ever, it’s all pay-what-you-want, with a slice of the revenue channeled to various charities at your discretion, and there are various DRM-free and multi-platform options available depending on bundle. Really, is there any reason not to buy into Humble Bundles?

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.

Buy our t-shirts, yeah

They're far more stylish than your average video game website tat.
