Humble brain tickler bundle

Humble's latest bundle is mixing an interesting lineup of indie games together. It has a collection of 12 titles split into three tiers.

The bundle begins with copies of Super Mutant Alien Assault and The Count Lucanor as the starters, available in the $1 tier. Going up a tier gets you Western Press, We Should Talk, Desert Child, Hiveswap Friendsim, and Elden: Path of the Forgotten for the current average price of the bundle.

The third and final tier costs $9 and adds GONNER2, Etherborn, Mosaic, Beasts of Maravilla Island, and Jack Axe to the collection.

Continuing the bundle streak, Humble also brought in its new Brain Tickler collection this week offering several puzzle, sim, and adventure games.

There are only six games included in the bundle, and paying $1 gets you one of them, a copy of Heal. Stepping up to the second-tier costs as much as the final tier with all games, so let's jump to that one. For $10 you get copies of Lumines Remastered, Mars Horizon, Retro Machina, while True: learn() Chief Technology Officer Edition, and The Signifier Director's Cut.
