Latest Humble Bundle games work in a web browser


— 6:00 AM on October 16, 2014

The Humble Bundle is back with a new collection of PC games at a pay-what-you-want price. And this time, there's a new gimmick. In addition to being available in DRM-free downloadable form (and, in most cases, via Steam), the latest crop includes browser-based versions of each title. You'll need at least Chrome 28 or Firefox 22 to take advantage, though the official site notes that "other browsers capable of executing JavaScript or mobile browsers may also work but are not guaranteed."

Mozilla's asm.js JavaScript variant is credited for powering the browser-based magic. Asm.js was also used to bring the WebGL port of Epic Citadel to life and for a slick Unreal Engine 4 demo earlier this year, but the games in the Humble Mozilla Bundle have a decidedly more indie feel. Take it away, Humble announcer guy:

The latest haul includes Super Hexagon, Aaaa! for the Awesome, Osmos, Zen Bound 2, and Dustforce DX. Folks who pay more than the average are entitled to Voxatron, FTL: Advanced Edition, and another game that will be added to the bundle at a later date. Big spenders who shell out more than eight bucks get a copy of Democracy 3, as well.

As usual, buyers can split their bill between the developers and several charities, including the Mozilla Foundation, the Maker Education Initiative, and CodeNow. Don't forget to tip the Humble crew for helping to keep PC gaming incredibly affordable.
