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.
