hib18 bundle twitter post


The Humble Indie Bundle 18 has been announced, and it contains some amazing new indie releases, along with some classic indie touchstones. The bundle is divided into three tiers: if you pay $13 or above, you’ll receive all the games in the bundle, along with the bonus items. If you pay the average or more, you’ll receive all games with the exception of D-Pad Studio’s Owlboy. And if you pay what you want, you’ll get the first three games in the bundle. So what’s in the collection? Find out below!


Pay $13 Tier:

Owlboy

D-Pad Studio


Owlboy is a 'high-bit' adventure game, where you can fly and explore a brand new world in the clouds! Pick up your friends, and bring them with you as you explore the open skies. Overcome obstacles and greater enemies, in one of the most detailed adventures of this era.


Pay The Average Tier:


Kentucky Route Zero

Cardboard Computer


Kentucky Route Zero is a magical realist adventure game about a secret highway in the caves beneath Kentucky, and the mysterious folks who travel it. Gameplay is inspired by point-and-click adventure games (like the classic Monkey Island or King's Quest series, or more recently Telltale's Walking Dead series), but focused on characterization, atmosphere and storytelling rather than clever puzzles or challenges of skill.

Goat Simulator: GOATY

Coffee Stain Studios


Goat Simulator is all about causing as much destruction as you possibly can as a goat. It has been compared to an old-school skating game, except instead of being a skater, you're a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff. When it comes to goats, not even the sky is the limit, as you can probably just bug through it and crash the game.

Beholder

Warm Lamp Games


Beholder is a simulation of the life of an ordinary human being at the frightening dystopian World where the State controls every aspect of private and social life. You are a State-installed manager of a busy apartment complex and your main goal is to spy upon your rentals so peeping and eavesdropping is a job. You must enter the dwellings of your tenants while they're at work or simply out of apartments, install hidden surveillance equipment, and search their rooms for anything that threatens the authority of the State.


Pay What You Want:


Ziggurat

Milkstone Studios


Become a neophyte sorcerer, and get ready for your rite of passage: Enter the labyrinth and face dangerous challenges to prove your worth and become a powerful wizard! The game focuses on fast-paced first person shooting, with an old-school vibe, and updated handling and game mechanics. Dungeon crawling and RPG/Roguelike elements are added into the mix, resulting in a fun, challenging and varied game, with lots of content to discover.

Image & Form


SteamWorld Heist is a space adventure with turn-based tactical shootouts, where you aim in real time and perform awesome bullet-bouncing trick shots. Join Captain Piper Faraday, smuggler and occasional pirate, as she recruits a rag-tag team of steam-driven robots and sets out on a daring adventure. With your hearty crew you'll board, loot and shoot your way through enemy spaceships. Overcome the challenges of the vast frontier by upgrading your robots with unique abilities, weapons, and even stylish hats!

And finally, if you Pay The Average, you’ll get the awesome soundtrack to Kentucky Route Zero, and if you pay $13 or above you’ll score Owlboy’s own amazing soundtrack, too.

Tried the download from your site, and the account creation failed. Is this game still supported online?

Interesting but tragic... perhaps the Desura alpha-funding program would have helped (then the Linux beta could have been posted up for us to test out), and Aren may have gotten something out of the project.

Edit: D'oh! Moron me, here, didn't notice it *is* in Alpha funding... sorry Aren! :-(

I just played the web demo, but it was quite a lot of fun. Very visually appealing, and looks like it has a lot of replayability due to customization.
