In the week Telltale announces three new sequels, you can pick up most of their previous games for peanuts in the Telltale Humble Bundle.
Telltale Games make rather fine adventures. The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands, Batman: The Telltale Series – fine titles, every one of them (but they also made Game of Thrones, Minecraft Story Mode, and a bizarre thing called Bone) – are all available in the latest charitable bargain pack, the Telltale Humble Bundle.
You know the deal by now. You pay what you can afford, and you get games. If you pay more, above a certain estimated average, you get more things. Here’s the full details of what’s in the bundle, at the various levels:
Humble Telltale Bundle – pay $1 or more
- Sam & Max: Season 1
- Sam & Max: Season 2
- Puzzle Agent 1
- Puzzle Agent 2
- Bone – Episode 1 & 2
- Hector: Badge of Carnage
- Telltale Texas Hold’em
- Poker Night at the Inventory
- The Walking Dead: Season 1
Humble Telltale Bundle – pay more than the average (around $8.62)
- The Walking Dead: Season 2
- The Walking Dead: Michonne
- Tales from the Borderlands
- Game of Thrones
- The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (50% off coupon from the Humble Store)
Humble Telltale Bundle – pay more than $15
- Batman – The Telltale Series
- Minecraft: Story Mode
- Minecraft: Story Mode – Adventure Pass
At the time of writing, nearly 50,000 bundles have been sold, for a stonking figure just short of $400,000 US.
Keep in mind that final level, the $15/£12 tier, is less than what you’d pay for one brand new Telltale series at retail. And yes, some of the things in the Telltale Humble Bundle are oddities that you’re probably never going to subject yourself to – Telltale Texas Hold’em, really? – but it’s worth the price of admission just for the bloody brilliant Tales from the Borderlands and the first season of The Walking Dead alone.
The fact that you also help out some good causes, and get some other games thrown in too? That’s even more reason to get in on this.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
