This Humble Indie Bundle Just Got Ridiculous…

We’re used to Humble Indie Bundles featuring great games, and huge amounts of great games, but the Humble Indie Bundle 6 just got a little bit ridiculous…

The original bundle featured Rochard, Shatter, S.P.A.Z., Torchlight, and Vessel — which is already quite the haul — but now it has added some real firepower to the line-up with some absolute classics.

Pay more than the average ($5.94 at time of writing) and you now get Dustforce, BIT.TRIP.RUNNER, Gratuitious Space Battles, Jamestown and Wizorb. As I said: ridiculous.

Head here to pick it up.


  • It was good before, and it added more?!? They didn’t even email me to tell me I had 4 more games lol.

    DRM free copy of Jamestown FTW. Love that game.

    • Rochard seems to be platformer (I haven’t played it yet).

      Dustforce is a kind of puzzle platformer where you play a janitor sweeping up dust with as much speed and style as possible.

      Torchlight is an RPG/adventure game similar to old-style Diablo. Torchlgiht 2 recently came out and is very popular, so I plan to spend some time with the original to see if it’s my “thing”.

      SPAZ is a top-down strategy/shooter where you manage resources and explore the galaxy with an ever-expeanding fleet of ships, engaging in battles against Space Pirates and Zombies (and bounty hunters) and is quite addictive.

      If you’re not interested in a story, Gratuitous Space Battles enables you to build a fleet of ships within a set budget (and design your own ships) to do battle against other fleets of ships. It’s fairly addictive.

      Bit.Trip runner is a rhythm-based speed platformer where you run/jump/kick your way through various obstacles, and I highly recommend it, especially if you have a gamepad for your PC (keyboard controls are functional but a little clunky).

      Shatter seems to be kind of like Breakout in gameplay but there’s more to it than that. I haven’t played it yet but it looks interesting.

      I can’t tell you anything about Shatter, Jamestown, Wizorb or Vessel.

      • I wouldn’t call Dustforce a ‘puzzle’ platformer so much – it’s like a much friendlier, more stylish spin on the Super Meatboy style challenge platformer. Vessel on the other hand is a nifty physics based platformer where you manipulate liquids and control cores to make helpful critters to complete puzzles for you.
        Shatter is a pretty spiffy Breakout game – one of those ones that never really got the recognition it deserved.
        Jamestown is a bullet hell shmup set in 17th century British Colonial Mars – brutal but fun, and designed with co-op in mind.

        • In all fairness, I only played the tutorial. I think this is another one I’ll want to play with a gamepad (much like Super Meat Boy), but it doesn’t seem to support it natively, so I need to get a program to set up the inputs manually.

    • Nah man, your purchase is automatically updated so you should be able to download them all via your profile (and/or redeem a code for them on steam).

      Check your profile on the Humble Bundle site!

  • This is one of those ones which is a ‘humble’ bundle only in name – all pretty much top-tier indie titles!
    I already had them all on Steam but put in a few dollars for DRM-free versions and soundtracks.
    (this is a good example where sales and bundles don’t devalue these titles – they just split the income over multiple rebuys :p)

  • I already have everything that has been added to the bundle , good thing I bought it for what was in it not what could be added 🙂
