Feeling like your game library could use some growing? We have some good news for you then, as Humble Bundle has recently launched the Humble Indie Bundle 11 with 4+2 games. Like the bundles before it, it follows a pay-what-you-want strategy, allowing the customer to spend as much as they think the games are worth. You also have the ability to send specific portions of what you pay to the developers, to Humble Bundle, or to the two featured charities: Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
No matter what you pay, you will receive Dust: An Elysian Tail, Ginana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, Guacamelee! Gold Edition, and The Swapper. To encourage people to pay more than the minimum, two additional games are locked behind the average price. In this bundle those games are Antichamber and Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine.
All of the games come with at least one soundtrack, are available as DRM-free downloads, can be redeemed on Steam, and, with one exception, can be enjoyed on Windows, Mac, and Linux machines. That one exception is Giana Sisters, which will have Mac and Linux versions released later this year.
As the bundle is only available for a limited time, I am not going to take the time to play each game to completion, but instead play until I am confident I can write a review of the gameplay experience. How long that may take depends on the game.
By the way, for some of these games I did pull out my Logitech F310 controller. If I speak of using a controller, that is what I am referring to.
With so many games in the bundle, the question can be if any one title makes the bundle worth purchasing on its own? Let us find out.
