Don’t miss these eye-catching indies from today’s Humble Games Showcase

Humble Games held its first gaming showcase today, and presented a variety of gorgeous-looking, diverse set of indie games, with a particular highlight being the reveal of Wizard of Legend 2.

The original Wizard of Legend is an intense magic-bit roguelike created by Contingent99 and Humble Games in 2018. Its sequel, aptly titled Wizard of Legend 2, has upgraded visually from pixel art to a silky smooth isometric 3D look that still captures the intense pace from the original.

The sequel is developed by Children of Morta developer Dead Mage and not Contingent99 because the latter wanted to focus on different projects. Still, Contingent99 has been consulted during the game’s development. Wizard of Legend 2 is in development for PC.

That wasn’t the only new game to be shown, though. A new game from animation studio Exit 73 Studios called #Blud is a beautifully animated action game where players fight back against vampires secretly taking over their town. For those scorned by Redfall, #Blud looks like it will provide a more refined — and more pretty and cartoonish — zombie-slaying experience when it’s released for PC in 2024.

Two other games in the showcase also featured outstanding animation. The first is Breeze in the Clouds from developer SrBilyon Harris, a weather-based brawler that draws from fighting games. The other is an action platformer inspired by Japanese folklore called Bo: Path of the Teal Lotus, which will come out in 2024 for PC. 

The showcase also featured some more minor updates, like a behind-the-scenes look at last month’s Myth and Music: An Evening With Stray Gods event and the announcement that proceeds from Protodroid DeLTA’s day one DLC will be donated to the Girls Make Games Scholarship fund. Humble Games also confirmed that Supraland: Six Inches Under has launched today for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. It is also in development for Nintendo Switch, which will it release sometime this summer.

The showcase wrapped up with two new game reveals. The Mageseeker: A League of Legends Story developer Digital Sun Games teased its next title, a real-time strategy game centered around fortress-building titled Cataclismo. Finally, Humble Games announced a partnership with Surgeon Simulator developer Bossa Studios for a new multiplayer called Lost Skies that’s in development for PC.

It’s a pretty diverse lineup of games, many of which sported really impressive animation, especially when you consider that these are coming from smaller teams. Humble Games is certainly starting to cement itself as an indie publisher worth keeping an eye on, like Annapurna Interactive of Devolver Digital.

best board game deals 2023 playing 7 wonders

Some days, it can feel like board games are the only remaining way for adults to play in a thoughtful, engaging manner that don't involve a computer or phone. They can, depending on the game, also be great for children and overall encourage a great sense of social communication in the land of the physical. Unfortunately, those physical components can be quite expensive and it isn't rare to find some of the best board games selling for $40, $50, or even more. But board gamers are tactics masters and know the art of holding off and striking when the time is right. For the purchasing of board games, that means waiting for board game deals to come around before making a purchase.

The following deals are divided into the two categories of under $25 and over $25, as that is a dividing line for many people in terms of what they're willing to pay for a game. However, a deeper look will see the following deals provide games across different genres, complexities, and age ranges. You'll find everything from casual party games to real brain burners. Enjoy.

Fortnite Banana emote code: How to get the Nanner Ringer emote for free
Nanner Ringer emote in Fortnite

Chapter 5, season 1 of Fortnite is underway with a whole new map and tons of fresh content for players to dive into. While most of the new stuff can be earned or purchased in-game, there's one special emote Epic has created that will require you to put in a code on the Fortnite website, and that's the Nanner Ringer emote. There's a catch, though: Only the first 25 million players to redeem the code will actually be able to claim the emote. Afterward, the code will expire, meaning there's a high probability that you'll never get an opportunity to get this one again, so make sure you act fast if you'd like to add it to your emote collection.
How to get the Nanner Ringer emote for free
When you're ready to claim the Nanner Ringer emote, follow these instructions.

Open the Fortnite website and sign in to your Epic Games account.
Select the profile icon in the upper-right corner of the screen.
Select Redeem from the drop-down menu.
Enter the code "BANANNANANANA" in the text box.
Select the yellow Redeem button to complete the redemption.
