Humble Bundle 9 Sweetens the Pot with Rocketbirds, Bastion, LIMBO, and A Virus Named TOM

The Humble Indie Bundle 9 just got even better! If you still haven’t grabbed this great lineup of indie titles, do it now. The already great bundle just added side scrolling action platformer Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken, unique puzzler A Virus Named Tom, hit indie RPG Bastion, and spooky, atmospheric platformer Limbo

Those new titles are added to the great line up that was already on offer, Trine 2, Eets Munchies, Mark of the Ninja and Brutal Legend (yes the one voiced by Jack Black). Spending over $4.62 gets you the 4 new games as well as last year’s cult space strategy game FTL and indie masterpiece FEZ.

This is an incredible lineup of games and a ridiculous amount of content for your 5 bucks. As usual, the folks at Humble Bundle have sweetened the pot with even more extras. Most of the included games come with downloadable soundtracks, and another mystery game will be revealed later in the funding period.

We’re big fans of the Humble Bundle here at IntoMobile. Since its first offering back in 2010, the Humble Bundle has provided a model for crowdfunding that’s a win for everyone involved. The consumer gets a great deal on a selection of games, the game creators are compensated directly, and charities such as Child’s Play get funding. Also, you can choose how much of your donation goes to each, as well as the “Humble Tip” which funds the continued work of the Humble Bundle folks with convenient sliders.

All of the games in this bundle will run just fine on Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs, and you can get Steam keys for $1 more. This latest Humble Indie Bundle will be available through the 24th, so get while the gettin’s good!

Check out the description and a trailer for the bundle below:

Check out these new additions:

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken

It’s chickens versus penguins in Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken. This side-scrolling action-platformer features clever characters and even cleverer gameplay. Play as a gun-toting chicken with the mission of taking down the tyrannical penguin faction. Besides some quick shooting action and stealthy duck and covers, you can also control a penguin with brain bugs and jet through the sky with rockets.

Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken is available DRM-free for Windows, Mac, and Linux and on Steam for Windows by paying over the average.

A Virus Named TOM

Created by a scientist seeking revenge, you’re a virus with a three-letter name in the fast-paced action-puzzler A Virus Named TOM. Feel your reflexes twitch as you rotate pieces to complete the circuit and spread the infection, but avoid the drones that’ll drain your energy upon contact. Infect with up to 3 friends in co-op mode, or, if you’d rather duke it out amongst yourselves, try out the versus battle mode.

A Virus Named TOM is available DRM-free for Windows, Mac, and Linux and on Steam for Windows by paying over the average.


The action-RPG Bastion won over the gaming public with its incredible attention to every detail — from the tight combat controls, to the inspired, narrator-driven storytelling in a novel, post-apocalyptic fantasy world. Players take on the role of the Kid, entrusted with the thankless task of restoring the world after a disastrous calamity. With a none-too-small arsenal of stylized weapons, jaw-dropping art, and amazing music, Bastion truly deserves its reputation as a must-play indie game by Supergiant Games.

Bastion is available DRM-free and on Steam for Windows, Mac, and Linux by paying over the average.


The captivating puzzle-platformer LIMBO is a modern classic, putting players in control of a boy’s journey through a tense and hostile world. The protagonist is as fragile and hardy as you’d expect of a young kid, making for a novel and sometimes surprisingly intense adventure. With incredibly tight platforming, detailed 2D graphics, and well-designed puzzles, LIMBO has rightfully earned critical and popular acclaim for the Danish indie studio, Playdead.

Limbo is available DRM-free for Windows, Mac, and Linux and on Steam for Windows and Mac by paying over the average.

Behold, the games!

FTL: Faster Than Light

Captain a spaceship delivering critical intelligence to the Federation while being chased down by rebels in the top-down space strategy game FTL: Faster Than Light. Manage your crew through one-on-one ship combat and life or death situations, while making sure they don’t die from lack of oxygen, fires, or shots from one of an arsenal of weapons. Random scenarios make each trip through the galaxy one full of surprises and challenges.

FTL: Faster Than Light won the Excellence in Design and the Audience Award at the 2013 Independent Games Festival. It was also named Best Debut at the 2012 Game Developers Choice Awards and Best Short-form Game of 2012 by PC Gamer.


Explore new dimensions (starting with the third), and see the world from a different perspective in the colorfully detailed puzzle platformer FEZ. Explore the world as Gomez, an adorable white little dude, who finds himself wearing a magical fez that grants him the power to rotate his world, effectively turning 2-D into 3-D. The universe is collapsing and restoring it has fallen entirely on your tiny little shoulders.

FEZ received the Seumas McNally Grand Prize at the 2012 Independent Games Festival. The game also received the Story/World Design Award and the Grand Jury Award at the 2011 IndieCade.

FEZ is making its Mac and Linux debut!

Trine 2: Complete Story

Immerse yourself in brilliantly rich graphics and a wondrous magical world in this side-scrolling action-puzzle platformer. You’ll need to make use of a wizard, a thief, and a knight and their unique abilities in order to complete puzzles and defeat nasty-looking goblins and frightening dragons in Trine 2: Complete Story. Play by yourself and toggle between all 3 characters or play with up 2 other friends in co-op mode. Trine 2: Complete Story includes the Goblin Menace expansion campaign and the Dwarven Caverns level.

Mark of the Ninja

Test your ninja stealth skills in Mark of the Ninja, a side-scrolling stealth game where the possibilities are endless. Learn new techniques and arm yourself with distraction and attack items, like darts, noise makers, and grappling hooks, that will help you distract and sneak by the guards. Choose how you want to play – will you slay all the guards or use your stealth to just sneak by undetected?

Mark of the Ninja is making its Mac and Linux debut!

Eets Munchies

A fantastic puzzle game for the whole family, Eets Munchies is a beautiful reimagining of the game that started Klei Entertainment. Featuring gorgeous animation, ridiculous creatures, and an amazing level editor, players help an adorable hungry creature devour cake in increasingly devious puzzles.

Eets Munchies is making its beta debut in Humble Indie Bundle 9!

Brütal Legend

In Brütal Legend, play as roadie Eddie Riggs (Jack Black) as you rock out and lead a band of head-banging minions to defeat some nasty-looking demons. Featuring a cast of characters voiced and inspired by heavy metal musicians including Lemmy Kilmister, Ozzy Osbourne, and Lita Ford, the game is soaked to the bone with metal. Get ready to have long, luscious locks, larger-than-your head biceps, and a freakin’ awesome electric guitar that spits white lightning. And if walking is too slow for you, you’ve got a sweet ride to traverse the terrain quickly and plow through nuns and urchins and stuff.
