For less than a dollar you can entertain your inner gaming masochist thanks to Humble Bundle's Weekly Roguelike Sale.
It takes a particular kind of gamer to enjoy a roguelike. The sort of gamer who doesn't mind grinding up against impossible odds knowing fully well that failure is pretty much an inevitability. The point, after all, isn't really to win. It's about leveraging your skill and experience to make it just the slightest bit further than you did the last time you played. Put shortly, even in the wide world of video games, there's nothing quite like a good roguelike.
Thankfully, for fans of the genre, there are plenty of options to choose from. That in mind, if you're looking to try a few, you might want to swing over to Humble Bundle sometime soon. The site, which offers regular packages of games can be purchased for as little as a dollar, has just recently launched a bundle of roguelikes. The base deal (minimum $1) will include the games Paranautical Activity, Dungeons of Dredmor Complete and Hack, Slash, Loot. Gamers willing to spend a little bit more (minimum $6) will also receive The Binding of Isaac, Teleglitch: Die More Edition Guns and Tunes and Sword of the Stars: The Pit-Gold Edition.
All in all, it's a really nice collection of games that should be more than enough to entertain roguelike fans for at least a few months, if not more. As always, proceeds from this Humble Bundle sale will be split between the site itself, the games' developers and non-profit groups like Child's Play and The Electronic Frontier Foundation. Customers can also design their own custom split to direct their cash to their recipient of choice.
