Humble sale of the seven seas

This is a slightly unusual one. Typically, big sales are grouped into one of three categories: platform, publisher, or series. That means you’ll often find games on sale grouped by some sort of unifying feature. In this case, it’s, erm, water?

No, really, it’s water. And pirates. Water and pirates.


The Humble Sale of the Seven Seas features discounts on a wide variety of watery video games. Bit of an odd one, sure, but it features some splendid games, and with a greater degree of variety than the theme might suggest.

If you like pirates, there’s Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag on the serious end. If you prefer your pirates a little more “of the Caribbean” then you’ll want to check out Sid Meier’s Pirates!, or maybe even Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion.

If you prefer your underwater experiences more ecological and explorational, then the splendid Abzu and Subnautica will be right up your street. Alley. Canal?

Fancy something with a narrative undercurrent? Then folk tale Burly Men at Sea will fit the bill for most, but if you’re looking for something a little bleaker? Then Sunless Sea and its Zubmariner expansion from Failbetter Games will scratch the deepest, darkest depths of that particular itch.

The Humble Sale of the Season Seas is live right now. It runs through until Monday, July 15 at 10 am Pacific. That’s 6 pm back home in Britain. And as it always the case with Humble, all purchases made will raise money for vital charities.


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

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.
