Talking about Braid today (and with my presentation with Iris coming up about Super Meat Boy), I just wanted to tell everyone about a cool collaboration called ‘The Humble Indie Bundle.”
Humble Indie Bundles in the past have included Braid, Super Meat Boy, and other popular games such as Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Limbo, Legend of Grimrock, and even copies of the movie previewed in class today, Indie Game: The Movie. To get a Humble Bundle you pay any amount you want, anywhere from $.01 to $1,000. There are incentives to pay higher than the average price (you get more games), but it’s still a great deal, especially for college students on a budget.
I think as the class goes on we’ll talk about a lot of games that could appear in Humble Bundles in the future (a new one comes out around every three months), and I wanted to let everyone know about it in case someone wanted to check out and play the games themselves!
Here’s the website: https://www.humblebundle.com/
P.S. It also supports charitable causes, which is especially cool.
