They don't call the latest indie game collection the Humble Jumbo Bundle for nothing. The most recent addition to the Humble Bundle series is loaded with games, including Natural Selection 2, Sanctum 2, and Magika. If you pay more than the average, which sits at just $4.25 right now, you'll also get Sanctum: Collection, Cities in Motion 2, Garry's Mod, Serious Sam 3: BFE, and two Orcs Must Die! games. Here's the promo video:
Out of those titles, I've only played Serious Sam 3: BFE, which is easily worth five bucks on its own. Once you get past the slow start, BFE delivers classic shooter gameplay, complete with hordes of enemies to mow down.
Folks who plan to experiment with SteamOS should note that Serious Sam 3, Garry's Mod, and Natural Selection 2 are all available for Linux. Those games should run well on Valve's gaming-optimized OS, though I'm not sure any of them is really ideal for the living room. Serious Sam 3 and Natural Selection 2 are first-person shooters that favor keyboard and mouse control. Garry's Mod is more of a sandbox than a game, albeit an incredibly successful one.
Just over four days remain to get in on the latest Humble Bundle. As always, buyers name their own price and decide how much of the cash goes to the developers, charity, and the Humble Bundle team.
