Humble Indie Bundle V

We at Frictional Games are but again part of a Humble Indie Bundle and this time it is very the pack. Our contribution is Amnesia: The Dark Descent and it is joined by Limbo, Bastion, Psychonauts and Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery. This pack of games is presented to a price tag of your own selecting, and portion of the income, you chose how significantly, will go to charity. This video will explain more:

I think the all of the games that Amnesia share the bundle with are really unique, and are all actually worth playing if you have not yet.

Sword and Sworcery was my prime from final year and there is a lot to understand from playing it. Foremost, it has this magical blend of music, gameplay and graphics that actually shows of the strengths of the medium. It is clear that this is not a game that has been designed to be some sort of competition, but to produce a specific, mystical experience. This is anything we need a lot more of.

Limbo manages to generate a really tense atmosphere, but more importantly it how to use a very simplistic manage scheme to produce excellent range. Today, game often require you to understand tons of buttons, but in Limbo you recognize all required controls after a handful of minutes of play. And yet the game manages to give you varied activities from begin to finish. It also in no way takes away control from the player, permitting for a extremely interactive narrative expertise.

Bastion is outstanding in the way it builds up its fiction. The continuous voice over offers meaning to your actions and also let you see the world in a quite diverse way than you would have otherwise. As the flowing narrative unfolds, enemies cease being cannon fodder and alternatively really feel like proper denizens of the planet. By small means a  lot of depth is added to the game, and I highly recommend it in a lesson on how to do story exposition.

Lastly, Psychonauts paint up a vibrant planet filled with quirky, interesting and but human characters. What I liked very best about it is how the core theme of the game, to enter people's minds, really merges each gameplay and storytelling. Actually playing the game does not basically servers as some filler between plot points, but in fact adds depth to the narrative.

Also, note that the sound tracks of all games comes along with the bundle! I imply, the amazing sound track from Sword &  Sworcery is sufficient cause to get the bundle alone. The music from Bastion is not poor either...
