The Humble Weekly Sale: Serious Sam

This week, there's a nice bundle for everybody!

It contains 8 games regarding the Serious Sam series, but only one of them is available for Linux also (and it's redeemable on Steam for Linux too!)... It is Serious Sam 3 BFE Edition, and it's available if you pay more than the average (at the moment $4.38).

- Serious Sam 3: BFE Edition: a glorious throwback to the golden age of first-person shooters where men were men, cover was for amateurs, and pulling the trigger made things go boom. As a prequel to the original Serious Sam: The First Encounter, Serious Sam 3: BFE takes place during the Earth’s final struggle against Mental’s invading legions. Set against collapsing temples and crumbling cities of 22nd century Egypt, Serious Sam 3: BFE is an exhilarating fusion of classic twitch shooters and modern gameplay features.

So, if you pay more than the average, you get 8 games (7 for Windows only and 1 for Linux also) and all the soundtracks!
So, what are you waiting for? Don't be stupid and be quick! You still have 2 days!

The Humble Indie Bundle 8

Joy and happiness for everybody! The Humble Indie Bundle 8 is here among us!

And, IMHO, this could be the best Humble Bundle ever released... Do you wanna know why?
Well, pay what you want, help charity, get some amazing soundtracks and.. If you beat the average, you get an incredible bundle with 11 (ELEVEN) astonishing indie games.
If you don't believe me, here are the games included!

You don't need to buy iPhone games anymore! On you can download free games for iPhone, iPad or iPod just in few seconds.

- Little Inferno: cloaked under the simple gameplay, Little Inferno is a thoughtful and clever satire on casual games. Channel your inner pyromaniac in this charming and witty sandbox puzzler.

- Awesomenauts: awesomely awesome, oozing with character and colorful cartoonish fun. This 3 vs. 3 multiplayer action platformer will have you attacking your opponents and their turrets while also defending your own base from attack across a variety of 2-D maps.

- Capsized: a 2-D platformer filled with colorful detailed landscapes and blood-thirsty monsters.

- Thomas Was Alone: it’s hip to be a square (or any other kind of parallelogram) in Thomas Was Alone, a minimalistic puzzle-platformer. Start out as Thomas, a red rectangle, then fall and jump through 100 levels as you discover new friends along the way.

Dear Esther: an experimental first-person adventure, strongly driven by a fractured narrative.

...Plus all 5 soundtracks.
But, if you beat the average, you get also:

- Hotline Miami: think quick and strategically in Hotline Miami, a 2-D top-down action game that rewards caution, tactics, and trial and error.

- Proteus: is a game of audio-visual exploration and discovery that has you wandering an exotic, mysterious island. Frolic across the landscape, revel in the changing seasons, lose yourself in the ambient sounds.

- Tiny and Big in Grandpa's Leftovers: play as Tiny, who's on a mission to get his magical underpants back from the bully Big. With a grappling hook, rocket launcher, and laser gun at your disposal, you can manipulate the environment to find your way to Big.

- Intrusion 2: suit up in a bright red scarf in this fast-paced 2-D action platformer. Culminating in a merciless and epic final boss fight, Intrusion 2 brings ragdoll physics to classic side-scrolling arcade shooters.

- English Country Tune: love a good challenge? Then you might be ready to take on English Country Tune, a geometric puzzler that might just push you over the edge.

- Oil Rush: in a world where oil is in high demand and there's a short supply, you must capture oil platforms in order to harvest precious resources. Undertake 16 missions in a single-player campaign mode and battle across 15 maps in multiplayer mode.

..And of course, all six soundtracks!
Well, you must admit it, this is at least one of the best bundles ever.
And all of these games are redeemable on Steam (but most of them are only redeemable on Steam for Windows)!
So, what are you waiting for? Don't be stupid and be quick!!!
