The third Humble Indie Bundle is now available. It's your chance to pay whatever you like for Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight and And Yet it Moves. A portion of each payment is allocated to the developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play. You can use sliders on the purchase page to decide the percentage that each party gets, and there's also an option to tip the Humble Bundle organisers. Each game works on PC, Macs and Linux systems, and comes DRM free. There are 13 days left to go on the deal, and more than 92,000 bundles have been sold. At the time of writing, the deal has made $437,366 already, and it's only been up for half a day. It looks as though this bundle is already set to break the records set by Humble Indie Bundles 1 and 2.
The Humble Indie Bundle 3 has expanded in all directions. The pay-what-you want package originally offered Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, And Yet it Moves and Hammerfight, then Mojang threw in a trial to let purchasers play Minecraft for free until August 14. Then rotating robo-blaster Steel Storm jumped in, but that still wasn't enough. Now, if you pay more than the average contribution (currently $5.22) for the Humble Indie Bundle 3, you'll get the Humble Indie Bundle 2 games as well.
The Humble Indie Bundle is a remarkable success story, since the third version of the pay-what-you-want scheme began last week it's already taken more than $1,000,000 in sales. The money is split between developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Child's Play and the cost of maintaining the bundle itself, with purchasers getting to determine how much goes to each. Now they've added a sixth game to the bundle: top down shooter Steel Storm: Burning Retribution, and made the introductory video you see above. The Humble Indie Bundle already contains Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight and And Yet it Moves, plus free access to Minecraft until August 14th. If you've already bought the bundle, you'll still get the extra game - you'll find it on the Humble Indie Bundle website. Those who have the bundle on Steam will see Steel Storm: Burning Retribution automatically added to their library. If you haven't bought it yet, you have seven days left before the offer ends.
A little while ago we threw a spotlight on this gorgeous model of a Minecraft village, ported from Minecraft into a CAD program, and then built with a 3D printer. Now, there's a video. A well-placed coin shows just how tiny the model is. It's total dimensions are just 360 x 250 x 60 mm. D'aww. If only 3D printing wasn't so expensive, we'd find a way to carve a model of the glorious constructions on the PC Gamer server. We could stick some cogs in it, add some tilt-shift and shoot a pretty good reconstruction of the Game of Thrones intro, only with more Nyan cats. The model above was created with the Zprinter 650. You can find plenty more images of tiny Minecraft worlds on the post apocalyptic research institute flickr account. Here are a few more choice picks from the recently uploaded sets.
OK, this is just getting silly. As if Humble Indie Bundle 4 wasn't star-studded enough to begin with, it's now added another nearly nuclear helping of bang for your buck. Specifically, the pot's been sweetened with five games from Humble Indie Bundle 3: Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVVV, And Yet It Moves, and Hammerfight.
I tend to get quite annoyed by pointless cinematic trailers for games, but this luxuriant CGI video for League of Legends won me over - and this is coming from someone too intimidated by LOL (or MOBAs in general) to play beyond the tutorial. Perhaps it's because the game has already been out for quite a while - this seems like a fun thing for the fans to pick over, rather than another cog in the marketing machine. The trailer's a battle royale of sorts between many of LOL's now-countless heroes, and unlike the game itself it doesn't involve too much furious clicking on stuff. Barely any, in fact. Instead, the likes of Garen, Katarina and Ryze duff each other up for our amusement. Have a watch below the break.
The Sky Pirates are invading Guild Wars 2! They might have done it sooner, but first they had to stop off at a steampunk convention. And then they had to stop off again to have a massive brawl in a watchmaker's shop. But now, finally, they've arrived in Tyria - cogs and all - to star in this trailer round-up of the features being added in today's update.
Assassin's Creed 3 has been the talk of the town at E3. We've had demos, screenshots and press conferences from the upcoming American Revolution sneak-and-slaughter title, but details on its multiplayer component have been few and far between. Until now. Three new screenshots have just been released by Ubisoft, and CVG have a little inside knowledge on the multiplayer. As well as a four versus four king-of-the-hill-style Domination mode, there are environmental kills, which mean you can topple trees on your opponents to squish them. There are also three confirmed characters: The Commander, The Carpenter and The Lady Maverick. Who we're going to assume feature in these screenshots.
Bioshock Infinite pre-orders are live. We've already had a peak at some of the bits and pieces that'll come inside the $150 Ultimate Songbird Edition, but there's more in store for early birds. Pre-orders come with a bonus puzzle game called Bioshock Infinite: Industrial Revolution which can be completed to earn in-game upgrades when Infinite is released on February 26 next year.
Man, you should've seen the number of metaphorical hoops I had to jump through this morning to get my laptop on a stable internet connection. How fitting, then, that today also marks the announcement of Contraption Maker, a sequel of sorts to the excellent Incredible Machine series of yesteryear! Will the year 2013 bring any simple new (and needlessly complex) tasks to carry out?
TimeStill 2 is a grainy, atmospheric little platformer from Zack Banack. All you have to do to do is collect the stars within each arena to progress to the next, but it's never simple when time manipulation's involved. Add swinging blades, lasers and pools of acid and you have yourself a real humdinger of a platformer, and all for the price of an 8MB download.
UPDATE FROM THE FUTURE: Woah, that was fun. Everything's all weird here in the past. Skyrim's not even out yet. A dark world indeed. Below you'll see some words and facts from months long gone. Be careful not to talk to them, that could cause a space-time implosion that could destroy the Internet. Instead let's observe that Valve held a potato sack sale once before, and it contained 13 indie games, and it was pretty cool. Where we're from, June 13 2012, the same sale is happening all over again. The wheel of time is turning, what once was will be again and all that. Anyway, you can get details on each of the games by clicking on the list of links below. Then, when you're ready, come with me, BACK TO THE FUTURE.
Some games should not be played alone. World of Warcraft. Counter-Strike. Kiss-chase. Hide the sausage. Add to that list Jamestown: a 2D top-down pixellated scrolling shooter set on Mars. With four friends in co-op, all figuring out how their different space-boat-ship things work together and using the ‘Vaunt’ ability to protect each other, it’s riotous fun. On your own, less so.
When we last checked in on Gaslamp Games' steampunk sandbox Clockwork Empires, Technical Director Nicholas Vining spoke of such wonders as carnivorous birds blending hapless humans into edible giblets and the soul-searching presence of useless machinery. In a new entry charting the rise of Empires' endearing quirkiness, Vining exposed more of the cog- and steam-work guts powering building construction and plumbing, and a small invasion of plant-like humanoids.
European settlers are taking your land, and armed resistance has proved ineffective. What do you do? If you’re the Xhosa people of southern Africa, you put your trust in a millennial prophesy, slaughter all your cattle, and wait for divine assistance. If you’re a native faction in AGEOD’s breathtaking colonial behemoth Pride of Nations, you pray the player will get tired of the lengthy turn processing times and quit the game.
As Noddy Holder once screeched, "it's Chriiiiiiistmaaaaaaaas" next week, so the next time you see me rounding up the week's best free PC games it'll be either just before or just after the New Year. No bother, though: before then we'll be counting down the top 10 PC freebies of the year, and this week there's a nice collection of titles to get stuck into, including a gorgeous platformer, a point-and-click adventure set within an angry space station, and a game I enjoyed but in which I have no idea what the hell happened.
"Behold the horn!" is the tagline for Dota 2's latest hero, Magnus. He's a cross between a horse, a rhino and a rug, and belongs to a species that call themselves the magnoceros, though he himself identifies as a "magnataur." His tale is a violent one that mostly involves impaling enemies on his massive horn, which is interesting, because in the game he favours charging down the lanes wit a great big stick. It is best not to question the mysterious ways of the magnocerus..ses, magnoceri, magnataurs, magna- oh nevermind. Let's see what he can really do.
In the process of PRing and promoting the 4.3 patch for World of Warcraft, the Blizzard development and art team are showing off some new features. We’ve seen the new raids and dungeons, new mechanics (yay transmogrification!) and new areas. Now, finally, we’re starting to see new art; in the form of the Tier 13 armour sets. With the pictures come a few smart bits of insight.
You can accommodate a million players but you can’t craft a million stories. It’s the quandary that faces every MMO: how do you keep things personal when you’re treading in another player’s footsteps? World of Warcraft focused on looting and grinding, The Old Republic put you on one of eight paths. Ragnar Tornquist, The Secret World’s creative director has has his own take. Don’t pretend your players are anything special: “You’re not the chosen one. You’re a cog in a wheel. You’re part of an army.” My army is the Illuminati. Unlike crusader fanboys, The Templars, and chaotic extremists, the Dragons, my faction are gas-masks and rifles, cash and research. I don’t look like a soldier and I probably don’t smell like one. At the start of my story I’m wearing a waistcoat and fingerless glove in my New York apartment. Just like the Templar’s intro, The Illuminati’s begins with a bee entering my mouth. Three days later, I’m juggling a ball of energy as a hipster/yuppie/salesman cross enters my trashed apartment . I probably smell like musky aftershave. “Your talent is raw but obvious” he says, before beginning the hard sell: “Protection, power, and the best parties in the biz” are all on offer. All I need to do is attend an appointment in Brooklyn the next day. “Later Gator,” he signs off. “Twat” I think to myself.
