The Humble app is now on the Epic Games Store, plus a new bundle

Recently Humble Bundle released the Humble app, a programme for playing the games attached to the Humble Games Collection (part of Humble Choice). Now this software can also be downloaded from the Epic Games Store.

Before now the Humble app could simply by downloaded directly from the Humble Bundle website, so what does this change actually offer users?

Well in the announcement there isn’t much reason given.

“Today we’re excited to share that the Humble app is now available as a free download on the Epic Games Store, giving the Humble community a new place to find the app—and giving even more indie gaming fans everywhere a whole new way to discover the great indie experiences in the Humble Games Collection,” the release reads.

We’re not sure simply being on the Epic Games Store puts any more eyes on indie games, especially as Humble has slowly incorporated more and more mainstream, bigger budget games into its catalogue.

One benefit to users is a limited-time promotion. Downloading the app through the Epic Games Store between now and 24th February will get you a 25 percent off discount on the first month of Humble Choice.

Attached to this news is also the release of a new Humble Bundle which can be found here and includes a total of seven games at the highest tier:

  • Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning
  • Mortal Shell
  • Saints Row: The Third Remastered
  • Shakedown: Hawaii
  • The Last Campfire
  • What the Golf?

To get all seven games you need to pay $15 (~R227.80) while the stated value of the bundle is $179 (~R2 718.37).

The default good cause here is the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, an organisation that fights racial injustice in America.

While we’re happy to see another bundle and more choices for people to access their content, we’re still not entirely sure that this partnership was needed or anything to get excited about.
