Get Some Of The Best Mac Games Ever For Pennies With The Humble Indie Bundle 4

Get Some Of The Best Mac Games Ever For Pennies With The Humble Indie Bundle 4

The Christmas Holidays are coming up, and if you’re a gamer looking for a rare week spent pushing, punching and shooting pixels, we’ve got a great Yuletide bundle for you: the Humble Indie Bundle 4. Not to put to fine a point on it, but it’s a sick deal, some of my very favorite games on the Mac.

No collection of shovelware, this. You’ve got the fantastically funny platformer Super Meat Boy, and the retrotastic Canabalt-like, Bit.Trip Runner (which also has a score so good it’s always on my iPod). Shank is an action platformer, while Nitescape HD is an atmospheric, 2D puzzle platformer. Rounding out the bundle is Jamestown, a beautiful new SHMUP that takes place on the Martian frontier.

Nothing catch your eye? If you contribute more than the average bundle price (as of writing, it was about $5), you get the incredible sci-fi strategy game Gratuitous Space Battles as well as Cave Story++, only my vote for the greatest indie game ever.

As usual, you can pay what you want, and all of the proceeds are split between indie developers and various charities. What are you waiting for? Get on it.

    First of it’s NightSky, not NightScape HD, don’t know where you got that from.

    Also, while these are undoubtedly some really good games there must also without a doubt be better games for Mac… :p

    I find it funny to call Jamestown ‘beautiful’ when a single pixel of a game texture is the size of a penny on my 21,5 inch iMac. Haven’t tested the other games, however.

    this could sound silly but were is the link to actually buy the bumdle?.

    Actually, these are some of the best games you’re going to find anywhere. Period.

    Christ, only on Cult of Mac can you find people actually bitching about the Humble Indie Bundle, especially this most recent assortment, without doubt the best one yet.

    I think it might be time to finally give up on this place.

    Gratuitous Space Battles is a *very* good game, comparable in fun, complexity (of space battles, not economics) and sci-fi feeling with classics like Master of Orion, Sword of the Stars and the like. As a 4X gamer of 25 years of experience, I can safely endorse it. The rest of the games, I didn’t play them at all. But just for this one title, it’s definately worth it.

    And, “Also, while these are undoubtedly some really good games there must also without a doubt be better games for Mac… :p ” – this sentence is just so… artificial. You didn’t find anything else to whine about, so you tell things like this? Really? Are you personally interested in bringing down sales for charity, for Christ’s sake? In the Christmas period?
