Square Enix is taking another run at the Humble Bundle (opens in new tab), this time with some slightly newer games including Hitman: Absolution, Supreme Commander 2, and, for those willing to pay a bit more, Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs, and Thief—but not one of the good ones.
"Newer" in this case is in comparison to the games in the Humble Square Enix Bundle from July of last year, which included fine fare like Thief Gold, Anachronox, Deus Ex, and the original Hitman. The Humble Square Enix Bundle 2 includes, for a minimum of $1, Hitman: Absolution, Supreme Commander 2, and Hitman GO, which is actually a puzzle game for Android devices.
Beating the average purchase price adds Murdered: Soul Suspect, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut, and the Thief reboot that came out last year. Kicking in $15 or more will net you Tomb Raider and Sleeping Dogs on top of everything else. As usual, more games will be added to the bundle "soon," which going by historical precedent means a week from today.
Speaking of Square Enix, earlier today the publisher invited indie dI think evelopers to pitch it new ideas for its Gex, Fear Effect, and Anachronox games. Other franchises may be offered up in the future, but for now, "we'll start with those and see what the response is like."
