Just about one of the most impressive Humble Bundles in recent years has just gone live. The Humble Freedom Bundle is a little different from your usual bundles in that there’s a single fixed price, but the upside is that 100% of the proceeds go to humanitarian assistance for refugees. A total of over 40 games are included, comprising some surprising big hitters such as the likes of The Witness, Stardew Valley and Day of the Tentacle.

I can personally attest to a good 15 or so of those games being absolutely solid. Some of the smaller standouts are Song of the Deep, Mini Metro, Nuclear Throne and The Swapper. Not everything here’s going to be for everyone but there’s definitely an overwhelming amount of quality. Tot all the playtimes up and you’re comfortably looking at year’s worth of gaming all in one go here.

Ah, and the all important price. All of the games below are available in one giant bundle for $30, with the promise of more to come.

  • The Witness
  • Stardew Valley
  • Subnautica (Early Access)
  • Day of the Tentacle Remastered
  • Overgrowth (Early Access)
  • Nuclear Throne
  • Octodad: Dadliest Catch
  • Invisible, Inc
  • Super Meat Boy
  • World of Goo
  • Mushroom 11
  • No Time to Explain Remastered

  • ROCKETSROCKETSROCKETS
  • 2064: Read Only Memories

  • Streamline (Early Access)

    + More to come

Aaaaand I just watched the trailer for Overgrowth and I have no idea what the heck is going on.

Anyway, you can grab the bundle for yourself from Humble Bundle.


Who’s tempted to go all in on this one? Stone cold classics or rammed full of filler?

How is this bundle "one of the best"?I got a bundle a few years ago which contained Battlefield 3,Dead Space 3,Crysis 2,The Sims 3 and some expansion,Burnout Paradise,Mirror's Edge,Medal of Honor and Dragon Age Origins alongside some unknow indies.And i payed like 4 dollars for them.Now that was a good bundle.I think it was Humble Bundle's first ever bundle.But nothing can top that.

To each their own I guess. Depends on whether you think budget = quality. I don't like Burnout Paradise, Medal of Honor, Crysis 2 or The Sims 3 so that wouldn't be a great bundle for me.

Still,you would get a load of AAA games which were more than relevant at the time for next to nothing.Paying $30 on basically indie games even though you get a load of them,is not worth it in my opinion.

I loved every Burnout before it Tazz, I just couldn't stand the open-world. Though it really detracted from having well designed circuits you could learn. I still liked the basics of it but I found it a disappointing Burnout game overall. Sadly that's the last we saw of it and then Need For Speed decided to take the exact same approach.

That's funny, not that I disagree that this bundle's pretty good, but this exact bundle was also my retort, I also bought this bundle and pretty much everyone I knew did too, you just couldn't pass it up, don't think they'll ever top this because they "got big" from it and don't need to, I've never found Humble Bundle to be so humble since that.

Given the ratio of stuff I may actually ever play per dollar, I'm not even sure this is the best bundle on HumbleBundle right this minute. The Star Wars Bundle III has a lot of great stuff for a lower entry price, and isn't quite so fluffed out with stuff I've never heard of before.

Humble Bundle's first ever non-indie Humble Bundle was the Humble THQ Bundle which included: Darksiders, Metro 2033, Red Faction: Armageddon, Company of Heroes Trilogy, Titan Quest, Red Faction: Armageddon Path to War DLC, and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Game of the Year Edition, all for just $1.
