Heads up, folks, just go ahead and grab your wallet right now. That's because the latest Humble Bundle has arrived, and it includes a number of stellar titles from Double Fine. Here, you can name your own price for Costume Quest, Psychonauts and Stacking, and if you beat the average, you'll also score a copy of Brutal Legend. All payments of $1 or more will net you a Steam key for the games, which are available -- some for the first time -- on Windows, Mac and Linux. As a unique twist to the promotion, payments of $35 or more include early backer access to Broken Age, the crowd-funded game that was previously known as Double Fine Adventure. As always, you can allocate some (or all) of your payment to charity, which benefits the EFF and Child's Play. Click on through to the Humble Bundle and you'll find bonus incentives for doling out some cash.
DOUBLE FINE NOT AT ALL HUMBLE ABOUT HUMBLE DOUBLE FINE BUNDLE
NAME YOUR OWN PRICE FOR FOUR AWARD–WINNING DOUBLE FINE GAMES ON THREE PLATFORMS
SAN FRANCISCO - May 7, 2013 - Double Fine Productions exhibited a complete lack of humility in announcing the immediate availability of the Humble Double Fine Bundle, an incredible opportunity to receive four classic Double Fine games for-you aren't going to believe it-the price of your own choosing.
Astonishingly, the Humble Double Fine Bundle includes Psychonauts, Brütal Legend, Costume Quest, and Stacking as completely DRM-free downloads for-get this-Windows, Mac, AND Linux. It's the first time Brütal Legend, Costume Quest, and Stacking have ever been available for all three of those platforms. Incredible. Plus, we're throwing in Steam codes for those who pay a dollar or more. Excellent.
"It's true: We're amazing," commented Tim Schafer, president and CEO of Double Fine.
"We generally like to be a little more humble about these deals, guys. It's kind of our brand," said Humble Bundle co-founder John Graham, a total buzz-kill.
"I sometimes find it hard to fathom how great we are," Schafer added.
You probably thought those flavor quotes meant that's all there is to this bundle. Think again. Those who contribute $35 or more will gain Backer Access to Broken Age, Double Fine's upcoming crowd-funded adventure game. Backers get a new episode of 2 Player Productions' Double Fine Adventure documentary every month, as well as a wealth of development materials, ongoing updates, and private backer forums. Existing backers can gift their access to a friend because, let's face it, we all need a break sometimes.
Okay, now we're really done. Ha! Fat chance. Contributors at $70 or above will receive an exclusive commemorative t-shirt designed by Soundshapes and Polygon graphic designer Cory Schmitz. After all, we're innovators.
And not just innovators, but philanthropists. Customers can choose to donate any amount of their purchases to Child's Play Charity or the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Charity, innovation, platform independence. These values are what we're all about. It's nothing, really. We're doing the best we can, just like everyone else.
