Humble’s Eye Candy Bundle is rich in retro PC style

Humble Bundle’s latest pay-what-you-want collection of Steam-redeemable PC games features a lineup of richly detailed, retro-styled 2D games, including standouts like Towerfall: Ascension and A Boy and His Blob.

Buyers have the option of claiming a small portion of the bundle’s featured games for a minimum price of $1, and remaining titles can be unlocked by meeting or exceeding the package’s average purchase price.

All bundle buyers will receive Steam codes and downloadable DRM-free copies of Human Resource Machine, a unique puzzler from the creators of World of Goo and Little Inferno. Human Resource Machine features puzzles that incorporate elements of computer programming, requiring players to devise precise, calculated solutions.

Bundle purchases of $1 or more also include Steam copies of WayForward’s exploration-driven 2D action game Shantae: Risky’s Revenge — Director’s Cut and A Boy and His Blob, a recently resurrected puzzle-platformer that traces its origins back to the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment System.

Buyers who beat the bundle’s average purchase price will additionally receive Steam codes for Towerfall: Ascension, a competitive run-and-gun action game for up to four players. Taking place within the confines of a single-screen arena, Towerfall: Ascension features gameplay that’s fast and frantic throughout, and recent updates have added a significant amount of new content not featured in the game’s initial release.

Other beat-the-average incentives for this month’s bundle include Dinosaur Polo Club’s subway route design sim Mini Metro and Mushroom 11, which Humble Bundle organizers describe as “an award-winning anti-platformer where destruction is the only way to move.”

Pitching in $10 or more for the Humble Eye Candy Bundle will unlock the package’s final reward tier, which offers up Steam and DRM-free copies of Shiro Games’ retro-styled RPG Evoland 2. The Humble Eye Candy Bundle will be up for grabs through May 17.
