Humble's Latest Jumbo Bundle Is Pretty Decent

There's plenty of discounts and bundles going around. The latest to join that list: Humble's most recent Jumbo offering.

The Jumbo bundles are typically some of the better deals offered by Humble, and their tenth offering is pretty solid up to the second tier, even without the extra games due to be added in a week's time.

As is always the case, you nominate how much you want to pay and how you want it to be distributed. A minimum spend of $US1 is needed to get Steam keys, but even for that you can get plenty of value for basically bugger all.

Tier 1: Pay what you want

  • Grey Goo Definitive Edition
  • Epistory - Typing Chronicles
  • Oddworld New 'n' Tasty

Real mix of genres here. Epistory is a curious game where you play a young girl on a fox, and you type out words on the screen to uncover treasure, solve problems, and ward off enemies. It's not the friendliest game for streaming or recording, but if you want to get an idea of the gameplay Mikey showed some off last year:

As for Grey Goo, it's a competent enough RTS. I enjoyed my time with the campaign, although some of the later missions completely fell apart. The definitive edition has some extra story DLC, though. Oddworld New 'n' Tasty is a "reimagining" of the original Abe's Oddysee.

Tier 2: Pay more than the average

At the time of writing, you'll have to fork out just over $7.50.

  • How to Survive 2
  • Kingdom: New Lands
  • Prototype 2

This isn't the end of the list: more games will be added next Wednesday. But as is, Prototype 2 and Kingdom: New Lands is a pretty good pairing for $7.50.

How to Survive 2 is the kind of game you'll want to play in co-op. It's a third-person zombie game set in Louisiana with crafting and survival elements, so that may or may not be your cup of tea. It'll depend on how many friends you can round up, I suppose.

Tier 3: Pay $10 or more

Just the one game here.

  • Wasteland 2: Director's Cut - Standard Edition

A very traditional CRPG, the above screenshot is probably a good enough indication if this will be up your alley. Or, put another way: Wasteland 2 is a game for those who wanted a remake of the original Fallout games.

So that's the three tiers. Grey Goo is a fun muckaround for those who miss the old days of RTS, and Prototype 2 is still good fun today.

As a fun aside, if you had the choice of building out your own bundle - what would you include in it?
