New Humble Indie Bundle Will Blow You Away – UPDATED

It’s Psychonauts, Amnesia and more in the best Humble Bundle ever.

We’ve seen a lot of indie game bundles come and go, some good, some great and a few pretty forgettable, but I don’t think any of them can compare to the Humble Indie Bundle V. Check it out: Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Psychonauts, Limbo and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, all in a pay-what-you-want package, with a bonus of Bastion for anyone who pays more than the extra. And on top of all that, you get soundtracks in FLAC and MP3 format for all of them.

I’m not sure how to convey the sheer awesomeness of this deal without dropping f-bombs everywhere, but I’m not allowed to do that so I’ll just do my best. Amnesia is one of the most balls-out frightening games of all time, the sort of thing that most people can’t finish because it’s so horrifically unpleasant; Psychonauts is Tim Schafer’s masterpiece, an unparalleled work of brilliance and flat-out hilarity; Limbo is a stunning exercise in atmospheric 2-D platforming and puzzle-solving; and I’ve never actually played Sword & Sworcery or Bastion, but I hear they’re pretty good too.

As always, the Humble Indie Bundle V lets you split your money in whatever portions you wish between the developers, the Humble Bundle team, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play, and anyone who pays at least $1 (and good lord, you should be paying a lot more than that) can snag the games on Steam.

I don’t know what else to say. Every one of these games is more than worth its regular price, but all five together, for whatever price you care to name? If that doesn’t convince you that it’s time to throw money at the Humble Bundle folks, nothing will.

UPDATE: Good lord, there’s even more. As of right now, anyone who pays more than the average price for the Humble Indie Bundle V – still under eight bucks, by the way – will also get Braid, Super Meat Boy and Lone Survivor, the (relatively) new side-scrolling post-apocalyptic survival horror game that was four years in the making.

If you’ve already purchased the Humble Indie Bundle V, you’ll be given access to all three new games automatically. And if you haven’t, why not? Seriously, what are you doing? There’s a week left on the clock at – don’t miss out.
