Humble Weekly Sale

Latest Humble Weekly Sale is all rhythm games

Ian Birnbaum at

This week’s new Humble Weekly Sale features a bundle devoted to rhythm games. The funkiest of gamers—by which I mean, anyone who can actually bob their head in time and carry a tune—will appreciate the sick beats on sale in the form of Symphone, Sequence, and Bit Trip Runner. I’ve now used up all of the music-related slang I know, so we can all move on.


Humble Weekly Sale offers Codemasters games DiRT cheap

Phil Savage at

It's Codemasters turn to flaunt their goods on Humble's digital sale shelf. Seven games, including various DiRTs, Overlords and Operation Flashpoints, have been bundled together, in a genre mash-up that has tiny imps erratically driving rally cars away from hyper-efficient snipers. Okay, so it's not that - it's the more traditional bundle of games collected for a pay-what-you-want price.

It's a good package, specifically for the quirky Overlord series, the excellent DiRT 3, and the kinda-fun DiRT Showdown. Unfortunately, the bundle does still necessitate a warning. With GfW Live's rumoured July 1st shutdown, both Operation Flashpoint: Red River and DiRT 3 could potentially stop working. While Codemasters have confirmed that DiRT 3 will be getting the Steamworks treatment, they've made no comment on their plans for Red River.


Humble Weekly Sale takes a Bohemian turn

The Humble Weekly Sale's latest pay-what-you-want package is shining a light on Bohemia Interactive's catalog of war games, sci-fi, and zombie mayhem. With its inclusion of the first two entries in the Arma series, the Humble sale puts you in the hot seat for some of the most amazingly complex military simulations of recent years.

Jamestown, Shatter and other indie games available in the Humble Weekly Sale

It's 'Black Friday' in the US, which means prices are falling across the internet like drunks playing in a greased up bouncy castle. Given the deals that even Humble's own store currently hosts, the Humble Weekly Sale for this week seems almost pedestrian. Not that that should worry anyone who doesn't own these six indie games, and doesn't object to paying what they want to get them.


Humble Bundle now lets you gift extra Steam keys to friends and family

Patrick Carlson at

The Humble Bundle has added a new feature to its already-popular package of game sales and charity outreach: the ability to gift games to family or friends. Humble is calling the new option "experimental," according to an announcement on its blog, but it's likely going to be a hit due to the enormous variety of games we often see in Humble's various digital download offers.


Cipher Prime Studios Humble Sale debuts retro arcade shooter Intake

The latest Humble Weekly Sale features the colorful and exclusive launch of what new retro shooter Intake, which indie developer Cipher Prime Studios calls the “polychromatic love child of Dr. Mario and Ikaruga.” An arcade-style shooter, Intake joins three other Cipher PC titles in this week’s offering.

Terrible and obvious puns aside, the Humble Weekly Sale has various joints from Focus Home Interactive, covering RPGs, city sims, and detective stories set in Victorian London.


Humble Weekly Sale offers Egosoft catalogue, Indie Bundle gets more games

Phil Savage at

Dammit, Humble guys. We leave you alone for a few days, and you barf up more games all over your website. There are two Humble happenings right now. Firstly, their Weekly Sale ticked over - kicking out the retro shooters and replacing them with the cold, dark void of Egosoft's space obsession. The entirety of the X-Series is being made available, minus the upcoming, spectacle promising, X-Rebirth. Secondly, over in the Humble mansion's main wing, the Indie Bundle 9 has added four more games, including Bastion and Limbo.


Humble Weekly Retro Shooter Bundle revisits late-90s shooter classics for a fistful of dollars

The Humble Bundle continues to crank out the deals on a seemingly daily basis. Yesterday, Humble Indie Bundle 9 landed, and today the Humble Weekly Sale has arrived with a deal on some classic shooters like Shadow Warrior, Serious Sam, and Duke Nukem 3D. Paying more than $6.00 will also get you 2011’s flashy-but-troubled sci-fi shooter Hard Reset and the all-time classic System Shock 2.


Introversion break into the Humble Weekly Sale, offer cheap Prison Architect (if you're quick)

The orange jump-suited felons of Prison Architect have escaped, and are causing havoc around the home of the Humble Weekly Sale. It's Introversion's turn this week, with a pay-what-you-want offer that will secure their back catalogue, including Uplink, DEFCON, Darwinia, and Multiwinia. And, for the next few hours, you can pay $20 to get their early access prison management sim for 33% off its regular price.


Humble Weekly 1C sale offers Men of War and Kings Bounty for pittance

Phil Savage at

1C Company are the subject of this week's pay what you want Humble Sale. Not that you're being offered their full, expansive, and occasionally ropey back catalogue. Instead the bundle focuses on two of the publisher's more notable series. Included are a battalion of Men of War, and a king's ransom of King's Bounty. It's a great collection if you're looking for a large and meaty slice of turn-of-the-decade PC gaming.


Sword & Sworcery EP composer Jim Guthrie is star of the latest Humble Weekly Sale

Phil Savage at

If you're a fan of weirdly ethereal electronic bleeps, uplifting synthetic bloops, and occasional ambient strumming, the latest Humble Weekly Sale should be of interest. Rather than focus on a particular game series, or a developer's back catalogue, it features the work of Jim Guthrie: composer of the soundtracks to Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and Indie Game: The Movie - both of which are also available in their original non-soundtrack forms as 'beat the average' bonuses.


Alan Wake stars in the latest Humble Weekly Sale

Phil Savage at

Is it still a weekly sale if there hasn't been one for over a month? Does it matter when the upshot is a bunch of cheap games? Probably not. So instead of questioning their time-keeping, let's celebrate the fact that the Humble Weekly Sale has returned, and is providing a pay-what-you-want offer for Remedy's Alan Wake games.


First ever Humble Weekly Sale begins with Bastion, adds a ton of extra stuff

Tom Sykes at

The Humble Bundle has evolved. No, not into a Wartortle - the charitable pay-what-you-want initiative is set to get humbler and bundlier and even more regular with the announcement of The Humble Weekly Sale, which will offer a new game for your consideration every Tuesday. The first deal goes live now, with the wonderful Bastion. As ever you can pay what you want for a DRM-free copy of the game (on Windows, Mac and Linux), though a donation of $1 or more will also get you a Steam key. If you beat the average you'll get extra digital content; spend $25 or more and you'll get physical merch thrown in too, including an actual Bastion bandana. Just the thing for when you wake up in a world of floating islands, with Logan Cunningham narrating everything you do.
