The Humble Choose Wisely Bundle has some adventure treats

By - | Views: 10,429

Ready for your next adventure? Looks like Humble Bundle has a reasonably nice set of games available in the Choose Wisely Bundle live now. Only two of the included games have a native Linux build, so as usual we shall let you know what to expect with Steam Play Proton for the others.

  • Beholder 2 - native Linux version available.
  • Between The Stars - has performance and stability problems with Proton.
  • Beyond: Two Souls - works with Proton.
  • Heavy Rain - needs a few fixes to be playable with Proton like WINEDLLOVERRIDES="xaudio2_7=n,b" as a launch option to fix out of sync audio. Performance is problematic though.
  • Kyle is Famous: Complete Edition - native Linux version available.
  • We Were Here Together - playable with Proton but the in-game voice chat doesn't seem to work. So you'll need to use something like Mumble or Discord.
  • 25% off Detroit: Become Human - playable with Proton.

See the full bundle if you're interested.

Other bundles they also have live right now include:

Liesure Suit Larry Collection

Nacon Space, Sports & Orcs Collection

Survive or Die

All 3 Quantic Dreams games for 20€ and a few other games on top is a steal. If you like this kind of games, of course.

Word of warning - Heavy Rain is quite harrowing... especially if you have children, but also trigger warnings for self mutilation and suicide. It's a very, very dark "game". Lots of quick-time-events too.

The only one from this list that interests me is Detroit: Become Human, but I'm not that interested, unless they suddenly decide to offer a native version.

Also, is it 25% off the already-discounted price of 55% off? In which case, that bumps the 55% off to 66% - a £30 game for just a touch over £10. It's not really clear. But regardless, paying £7 for the bundle to get £3 off a game? Since I'm not really invested in the other games, that really wouldn't be "choosing wisely".

I'm in €-Country and the 25% were additional. So it went from ~16€ to 11€.

All 3 games together are 80€ on Steam. With this bundle you get them for 20€. 75% off and a few extras.

I really recommend Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain. Something about them that (to me) just puts them on another level from other adventure games. In fact, to have them in the same category as the longest journey seems crazy to me. The Quantic Dreams games and others like Life Is Strange need a new category imho.

Bundle contains a "we were here" game. Since humble doesn't offer an option to deny a dev income, I'll have to so no to the whole bundle.

They took that out, but didn't they put it back in again?? But hidden somehow? Or is it gone completely? I've missed quite a few Choice bundles because of Denuvo-encumbered games.

If you purchase this, will all of the games be loadable into Steam via a key?

The custom option allows you to move the sliders around a bit, but they don't have a breakdown for the games any more - they just lump all "publishers" into one slider. Also, there is a fixed minimum for the Humble cut; you can't give all to charity (or all to the publishers) any more.
