The latest Humble Bundle is headlined by solid adventuring in the form of Broken Sword 5 and Cognition, amongst others.
The Humble Weekly Bundle: Adventures! – named just to annoy those of us who hate putting terminal punctuation marks in the middle of sentences – is the usual tiered affair. $10 nets you the whole lot, but let’s see what you can get for cheaper.
Well, the Pay-What-You-Want-As-Long-As-It’s-$1-If-You-Want-Steam-Keys tier (and I really need to find a shorter way of saying that) will net you the superb Broken Sword and Broken Sword 2, The Whispered World: Special Edition, and Detective Grimoire. I bought Detective Grimoire ages ago, and I still haven’t played it, because that’s basically what I do. It looks interesting, but I can’t comment on its quality.
If you pay more than the average ($3.99 at the time of writing) you also get the Peter-approved The Detail: Episode 1, A Golden Wake, and Cognition, an adventure series that you lot gave a Readers’ Award to several years back. For Best Adventure, if I remember correctly!
Finally, paying $10 nets you Broken Sword 5, a game that is significantly better when played as one solid whole rather than as two episodes. I’d also argue it’s better than Broken Sword 3 and 4, so for $10, you basically get the best Broken Sword games in the series – and it’s a rather good series. Let’s not forget that Broken Sword 5 is still sold on its own for around £20, too.

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
