First, expect a really short article, i’ve just bought this new Humble Bundle that has some titles that i was waiting for, from one great software house Introversion.
In case you have spent your last year away from a computer or from the net, i’ll repeat the Humble Bundle project slogan:
“Pay what you want. Support charity. Get awesome games. ”
So let’s take a quick look at this new offer that will be available for the next 14 days and that includes : Uplink, Darwinia, Multiwinia, DEFCON and if you pay more than the average of $3.63 (in this moment) you’ll get also Aquaria and Crayon Physics Deluxe!
In Uplink, players take on the role of a hacker for-hire, breaking into computer systems and nabbing valuable, secret information. The hacking gameplay in Uplink is textbook cyberpunk, with cracking software, credits, and nasty megacorporations. It’s like a puzzle-adventure, with all the action taking place between bits and bytes in cyberspace.
The award-winning Darwinia combines sweet bits of arcade action with engaging strategic gameplay. In environments reminiscent of Tron and Lawnmower Man, players must deploy and control combat programs to fight off a malicious virus corrupting the Darwinia network. Darwinia won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize, Technical Excellence, and Innovation in Visual Art awards at the 2006 Independent Games Festival and is a must-play, retro visual experience.
Multiwinia: Survival of the Flattest spins the core gameplay of Darwinia into six competitive multiplayer game modes for one-to-four players. The objectives for each mode vary, from the familiar capture the flag-style game mode, to the task-based “Rocket Riot” mode, which has players competing to be the first to leave the planet.
Inspired by the classic geek film WarGames, DEFCON emulates the experience of Cold War-era, global thermonuclear war on a “big board” map of the world. Up to six players compete as generals of various nations, with the basic goal of eliminating as much of the enemy’s population as possible while minimizing their own losses. As the DEFCON counter goes from 5 to 1, players can take progressively more aggressive actions against their neighbors, ending with cataclysmic nuclear launches.
i’m sure you want to beat the average and get also these 2 Bonus games:
Crayon Physics Deluxe is a physics-based puzzle game that won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize at the 2008 Independent Games Festival. In Crayon Physics Deluxe, your doodles and drawings transform into objects you can use to push, pull, slide, shield, and catapult the ball towards the goal in more than 70 distinct levels.
The action-adventure game Aquaria won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize at the 2007 Independent Games Festival with beautiful art, seamless exploration, and a clever, mouse-gesture magic system. Players traverse a massive underwater world with 175 unique creatures and discover ancient secrets that reveal the truth about the protagonist, Naija.
