If you play games on PC, Humble Bundle offers the chance to grab a bunch of great games for cheap while also benefitting charity. The latest Humble Bundle is dedicated to indie games on Steam, including Hotline Miami, Starbound, Gato Roboto, and more. By default, Humble Indie Bundle 21 benefits Traveling Stories, a nonprofit that builds libraries in underserved villages across the world. You get to choose how to allocate your money, though, whether that be to the publisher, a charity you like, or a mix of both.
If you pay just $1 or more, you’ll unlock Hotline Miami, Beat Cop, and Dustforce DX. If you haven’t played Hotline Miami, the $1 tier is more than worth it for Devolver Digital’s punishing and stylish top-down action game. Beat Cop is an investigative adventure that harkens back to ’80s TV shows and features gorgeous pixel art. Meanwhile, Dustforce DX is an endearing platformer starring a handy janitor.
The second tier of unlocks requires you to pay the average contribution (currently $7.33) to also get Moonlighter, Gato Roboto, and a mystery game that will be revealed next week. Moonlighter is a lovely mash-up of town simulation and roguelike dungeon crawling. You play as a shopkeeper by day, but by night you restock your shelves by waging war against monsters. Gato Roboto, another Devolver Digital title, is an adorable monochromatic platformer in the vein of early Metroid games.
Pay $15 or more, and you’ll also get Hypnospace Outlaw and Starbound. Hypnospace Outlaw takes place in an alternate history 1999, where you play as an Enforcer tasked to police the internet (known as the Hypnospace). It earned an 8/10 in GameSpot’s Hypnospace Outlaw review for its witty writing and clever puzzles. The highly-regarded Starbound is a sandbox side-scroller set in space that lets you build the world and explore as you see fit.
More PC game deals
Even if you already own a couple of these games, Humble Indie Bundle 21 is a stellar deal seeing as most of these games regularly go for $10 to $20 each. It also feels great to help a good cause, which sweetens the pot even more. There are tons of great gaming deals this week beyond the latest Humble Bundle. Fanatical is hosting a huge May Madness sale; GOG is discounting a bunch of zombie games; the Xbox Store has dozens of racing games on sale; and a mix-and-match Steam bundle lets you get three great games for $10.
