Pillars of Eternity is fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it just last month, and now, you can too, with the latest RPG-themed Humble Bundle. Also, it'll only cost you 6 bucks. Bargain!
The Humble RPG Bundle is a celebration of all things adventure-worthy, and it'll take you on a journey through space, deep forests, mountain caves, desolate battlefields and the unruly world of Pandora.
On the $1.49 tier, we have:
- HIVESWAP: Act 1 — A Homestuck RPG adventure featuring monsters, aliens and dimensional travel.
- Deep Sky Derelicts — A dystopian turm-based roguelite following the adventures of a space-faring outcast.
- Immortal Planet — An action RPG where strategic combat and space gods combine.
On the $6.09 tier, you'll get all of the above, as well as:
- Tyranny — A choice-driven Obsidian RPG where the player must bring order to a lawless world devastated by war.
- Pillars of Eternity — Another fantastic choice-driven Obsidian RPG where players lead their band of adventurers on an epic tale filled with magic, monsters and mysteries. It's great!
- Cat Quest — An adorable-looking RPG where protagonist Felingard must traverse a dangerous Overworld to protect the ones he loves.
The older I've gotten, the more discerning I've become. Gaming as an adult means finding time in the spaces between work, meals, the gym, curling into a ball and crying, and other responsibilities. You have to scrape in the couch for time to game, reach underneath cupboards, sometimes claw it back from your mates. Time is of the essence, and it's for that reason that up until last week, I hadn't really invested in an oldschool fantasy RPG like Pillars of Eternity.
And finally, the big daddy tier. For $22.34, you can unlock all of the titles on this list, as well as Borderlands: Game of the Year Enhanced.
This version of Borderlands (which I'm sure needs no introduction) includes upscaled 4K graphics as well as all the DLC, new weapons, loot and character skins.
Good stuff from Humble this month! All of these games come highly recommended, so hop to it, folks. (Please play Pillars of Eternity, it is so good.)
