There seems to be a heavy narrative focus in the Humble ‘Game On’ Bundle, which includes some wonderful narrative-focused games.
This new Humble Bundle contains one of the most interesting narrative games of the last few years, Sam Barlow’s ‘Her Story’, in its ‘pay anything’ tier. This is an FMV adventure focused on plugging key words into a database search engine, but it’s far, far more interesting and enjoyable than the premise might have you believe. The excellent ’80 Days’, a game focused entirely on narrative choice, is in here too. I’ve not played Worms Clan Wars, but it’s a series you can’t go too far wrong with.
In the next tier up, beating the average (currently a very low $5.24) nets you Grim Fandango Remastered, The Stanley Parable, and Broken Sword 5. Grim Fandango is the standout here, but The Stanley Parable offers something new and the Broken Sword franchise is well worth getting into.
Finally, the fixed $10 tier also gets you Day of the Tentacle Remastered and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. As always, you can choose how to split the money between Humble, the developers, and the charities involved.
This is a fantastic bundle, up there with last week’s (still ongoing) Indie Bundle.
Additional games sometimes get added to these bundles as time passes – we’ll let you know if that happens this time.
