Humble brings back a bunch of boomer shooters for this game bundle

By - | Views: 36,317

In the new Back with a Vengeance: The Best of Boomer Shooters Humble Bundle, you can grab some hot action for cheaps and they all work well on Linux Desktop and Steam Deck.

As usual I will give you easy to read compatibility for Steam Deck and Desktop Linux via Deck Verified, ProtonDB and Native Linux listings. Each is also a Steam link to grab more info if you need before purchasing. 

Here's what's in the bundle:

ULTRAKILL - Deck Verified / ProtonDB Platinum

ULTRAKILL is a fast-paced ultraviolent retro FPS combining the skill-based style scoring from character action games with unadulterated carnage inspired by the best shooters of the '90s. Rip apart your foes with varied destructive weapons and shower in their blood to regain your health.

Turbo Overkill - Deck Verified / ProtonDB Gold

Turbo Overkill is complete and with many new updates (just in: spectacular ending credits). Clean up Paradise with your chainsaw leg, 15+ weapons & hovercar, and battle Syn (a super AI), bounty hunters, and cyberpunks aplenty. Apogee's most outrageous FPS since Duke Nukem 3D. Good hunting, Sir!

Forgive Me Father 2 - Deck Playable

Embark on a journey into the darkest nightmares to restore your sanity. Blast your way through hordes of possessed enemies, unlock an arsenal of deadly weapons and unearthly abilities, and get ready to face even more Lovecraftian madness in this action-packed FPS sequel.

Deadlink - Deck Playable / ProtonDB Gold

Get ready to put a sizable dent in the profits of megacorporations in Deadlink, a guns-blazing cyberpunk FPS with roguelite elements. Your mission is to conduct covert ops while piloting a humanoid combat shell. And no, "covert" doesn’t mean "quiet."

Prodeus - Deck Playable / ProtonDB Platinum

Prodeus is a first-person shooter of old, re-imagined using modern rendering techniques and technology. Experience the quality you’d expect from a modern AAA game, designed with retro aesthetics and gameplay that invoke the tech-imposed limits of older hardware.

Quake II - Deck Playable / ProtonDB Gold

You are humanity’s last hope to stop the Strogg, a hostile alien race waging war against Earth. Play this military sci-fi FPS, now upgraded for modern platforms with improved visuals, new campaign content, online multiplayer/co-op, and more.

POSTAL: Brain Damaged - Deck Verified / ProtonDB Platinum

POSTAL: Brain Damaged is a new, action-oriented take on the Running With Scissors’ cult game series with throwback graphics, and fast-paced, modern gameplay. Take a wild roller coaster ride through the twisted wonderland encased in the POSTAL DUDE’S messed-up mind.

Oh and if you like the Earth Defense Force series there's a fresh game bundle for those too!

Nice. I first got into classic shooters (DOOM, Quake, Blood etc) a little before games like DUSK, Amid Evil, and Ion Maiden released, but moved onto other stuff when they actually did, so now I'm finally doing a ton of catching up. I finished DUSK a few nights ago which was outstanding, and Ultrakill has been on my wishlist since launch, so this is an easy pickup. Cool to see Quake 2 in there but I would've thought they might as well just stick Quake 1 in with it.

On that note, DUSK made me want to replay Quake and I've gotta be honest, really not as good as I remember. The visuals are very one note, and while the soundtrack is great when it really gets going and compliments the tone nicely, it's very subdued. More importantly, man are some of the enemy types annoying in that game. Even though most are melee or projectile, they might as well be hitscan given how much I get hit by them. Shambler's in particular are just not fun to fight.

As I wrote on my review on steam: Prodeus is the most Doom since Doom, while not being Doom.

Glad to see Quake 2 on this list. The remaster is truly excellent.
An incredibly rare bundle in which I have none of the games, actively want a couple of them, and they're all superb.
