Humble Bundle continues to be knocking out some impressive bundles these days, particularly for indie fans. The latest Humble Game On Bundle crams in some absolutely top tier adventure games, as well as a bonus AAA shooter for good measure. 

A measly $1 will net you Worms Clan Wars, 80 Days and Her Story. I’ve not actually heard of Worms Clan Wars so approach at your peril - if my life has taught me anything, it’s that the only way was down after Worms 2. 80 Days and a Her Story are both absolutely sublime short games; about 2 to 3 hours long each. 80 Days offers an inventive take on visual novels, while Her Story is detective work while crouched over an old CRT monitor. 

Anyway, that’s what you can get for the price of a chocolate bar, while the Beat the Average tier includes Grim Fandango Remastered, The Stanley Parable and Broken Sword 5 - The Serpent’s Curse. Grim Fandango has some of the greatest atmosphere I’ve ever witnessed in an adventure game, occasionally let down by one or two ridiculous nonsensical puzzles. I hope I see another pump machine in the woods until the day I die. The Stanley Parable is an acquired taste, however, it’s the sort of game which needs to be played multiple times in order to eke out its secrets. And Broken Sword 5, well, it’s more Broken Sword, courtesy of Charles Cecil. 

Lastly we have the $10 tier, which includes Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Day of the Tentacle Remastered. Both can be picked up fairly regularly in sales so I’m not sure of the value proposition here, but DotT is an excellent rework and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is a bit more-of-the-same for Borderlands fans.

If I didn't already have the pre-sequel of Borderlands I'd snap this up in a jiffy! :)
