The first batch of Humble Choice games has been announced, and if you saw the leak then it’s almost exactly what you expected.
Almost. One major change has been made. FPS roguelite Void Bastards has been replaced by Viking RTS Ancestors Legacy. Otherwise, the choices are what you’d expect. That means the headliner for this batch of games is Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the final game in the reboot trilogy. If you ever wanted to see how Lara Croft became the Tomb Raider, this is where you want to be.
Of the rest of the games, there’s a little something for everyone. Blasphemous brings you 2d pixel art with Souls-styled gameplay and a creepy aesthetic. Phantom Doctrine is an Xcom-styled strategy game that takes place during the Cold War and trying to stop the war from getting hot. Dead in Vineland is a tactical survival game where your Vikings crash on an island and need to manage their food and supplies while going on missions to grow their town and explore the island.
A pair of racing games help with the package. Horizon Chase Turbo is a classic-styled racing game that has you driving cars around a track, while Dark Future: Blood Red States looks like a racing game but plays more like a tactical combat game. There’s also a pair of tower defense games with X-Morph: Defence having you invade Earth and destroy cities, while Aegis Defenders combines 2d action platforming with tower defense. Finally, Desert Child rounds the package out with stylish SHMUP action.
Depending on your plan you’ll be able to pick either 3, 9, or all 10 of these games to keep. So make sure you give each one a look and figure out what meets your fancy.
