Gas Station Simulator??

Maybe I'm biased, or dumb, or too close to the source material, but I don't really understand at all the appeal of these "blue collar/service" job simulators.

I mean if you're really into it, we have job openings. It's even like an RPG! You start off doing low level work like picking up roadkill and you get to choose you starting equipment (do you want a shovel.... Or gloves?)!!

You can even level up, but it still won't suck up dead animals. Side quest: unclog the Pelican. (Pro tip: pick gloves at the start!)

Lol i agree.....

Im waiting for "Office Worker Simulator"..... Welcome to the mind numbing world of Data Entry...... Work at the same company for three years without your boss even knowing your name........ Have daily fights with the printer that never works and has contant paper jams, even though IT says the printer is fine and no error messages appear it never works and keeps ruining your work...... Work hard and watch as you get passed over for every promotion as they are given to relatives/friends of the bosses...... Make one mistake and watch as your pay gets docked and get an email from any manager above you warning you that you are making to many mistakes..... Beg and plead to your new bosses that you are worthy enough to keep around during a corporate merger, spending months not knowing if you will have a job everyday you turn up for work...... Get escorted out of the building by security after getting fired for making three mistakes in the same calendar year..... ALL THIS AND MORE IN OFFICE WORKER SIMULATOR!!!

It's really funny how people seem keen to play games simulating jobs they'd never want to do in real life. I have seen a Lawn Moving Simulator, too. That's that involuntary weekend activity most of us constantly complain about...

People are weird. :D

That's the main one that looked interesting this month, but since I already have it, I think this month is a skip for me.

Try playing "Papers, Please" then. May you discover the joys and shenaigans that every job has.

I think The Ascent is pretty brilliant despite some jank and clunk. It combines twin-stick with ARPG and shooting. The story is fun. The atmosphere gritty.

There are plenty of white collar and "professional" simulators in this genre, just not this bundle. They're just casual sim-management puzzles with a theme. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I picked it up, it's nice to see a good bundle again.

I look forward to trying out Hot Wheels: Unleashed and The Ascent.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is a game I've already had on EGS (it was a freebie), but a Steam copy is always preferred. I'll have to complete this one for sure.

Other games seem quite interesting as well. Well, maybe not Gas Station Simulator - but the rest of the bundle is pretty solid.

It's well worth the 10€. I really wanted to have Hot Wheels: Unleased, and here I not only get it, but I also get some other good games along with it.

I had an inkling that Hot Wheels would appear one day in a humble bundle - it's good that I haven't pulled the trigger on it in the past.

Lol, can't say I deal with any of that here, I picked up the Union Member DLC subscription, only $1000 a year (totally worth it)!
