Last chance to save on the Humble overwhelmingly positive bundle

Humble bundle gradient

The Humble overwhelmingly positive bundle is a collection of games linked by just one thing: their rating on Steam.

Steam ratings aren’t the most consistent indicator of quality. In theory, user reviews are great, like Tripadvisor or Yelp. It’s become second-nature to check what Joe Public reckons about the thing you’re about to buy. But user reviews can be subject to abuse, vendettas and axes for grinding.

And Steam – with its fairly widespread review-bombing problem – is one of the trickiest to navigate.

Luckily positive reviews are much easier to parse. You’re far more likely to see funny business with rapidly racked up negative reviews, but if a game is able to stay with a positive rating – and has more than a handful of reviews, to rule out sock puppets – then it’s a good sign.

Humble has been keeping an eye on games that have been well-received on Steam, and this year, has been running another Humble overwhelmingly positive bundle.

If you pay just $1, you’ll get Wuppo, Simulacra, and robot commuter narrative detective game, Subsurface Circular.

If you pay more than the average – at the time of writing, around $7.30 (or about £5.53) – you’ll get Lisa, Momodora: Reverie Under The Moonlight, Nuclear Throne, and the thoroughly brilliant horror game, Soma.

Pay $15 (around £11.36) you’ll also get a key for Opus Magnum, the brilliant machine-based puzzle game. You’ll also get a $2 Humble Store wallet credit, if you’re a Humble monthly subscriber.

You’ll have to be quick, though: the Humble overwhelmingly positive bundle closes today. Specifically, that’s 11am PT (7pm BST). That’s less than twelve hours to rack up a bunch of very well-received games for not a lot of money, and also do your bit to raise money for charity.

We may receive a small commission for purchases made from online stores.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
