What is the Humble Bundle?

So, if you don’t know about the Humble Bundle, every so often, the Humble Bundle team at https://www.humblebundle.com/ will come out with new bundles weekly or so that have all kinds of different games. Some games you get by donating just $1 (Yes, you pay in dollars. You can pay in GBP in the Humble Store, however), with more unlocked at $5 or $9, for example. It’s a great way to get games for a good value whilst being able to donate to charity.

Humble Bundle and Weekly Bundle

These are fairly straight forward. You see a list of games, as seen below, and you can choose which games you want at which price.


According to the Humble Bundle, the prices of all of this individually cost up to $325. However much, paying just $9 for eleven games like these is a bargain no matter how you look at it.

The Weekly Bundle runs for one week whilst the Humble Bundle runs for two weeks.

Humble Monthly

The Humble Monthly is a new addition to Humble Bundle, and it means you pay a monthly fee of $12 for a certain amount of games. The games in question this month are:

  • Legend of Grimrock 2
  • Towerfall Ascension
  • Besiege
  • Valkyria Chronicles
  • Lethal League
  • SanctuaryRPG: Black Edition
  • Saints Row IV


The total cost of these games individually is around $104, which is a huge price difference compared to $12.

The main issue with Humble Monthly is, since you don’t know what you’re getting, you might end up getting a game you already have, as I did with Saints Row IV.

Books Bundle

This is like the Weekly Bundle, but instead they sell all sorts of digital comics and books for low prices.

Mobile Bundle

This is also like the Weekly Bundle, but they sell Android-only games at low prices. Sorry, Apple users.

Humble Store

This portion is extremely simple. It’s basically a store that you can buy games from for usually less than what they are on Steam. What makes this better is that 10% of all sales go to charity. The Humble Store has thus far raises $3,660,000 for charities. The charities you can choose to donate to are in the thousands.
