Great news for gamers who love to play indie titles: the Humble Indie Bundle just turned 18 and it’s offering 7 indie games for… well, pretty much next to nothing.

The Humble Indie Bundle 18 currently features 7 games, with some extra games scheduled to be unveiled next week. You can get all these games for just $13, which is a steal considering that they'd set you back more than $125 if you were to buy them from Steam.

Pay $1 to get Ziggurat, Windward, and SteamWorld Heist

Just $1 dollar for 3 games that would set you back $40 if you were to get them from Steam.




Ziggurat, a first-person shooter dungeon crawl video game that was released in October 2014, asks you to become a neophyte sorcerer and undergo a dangerous rite of passage. You must enter the labyrinth, complete challenges, and prove your worth. In order to become a powerful wizard, you will have to get through rooms filled with traps and fight dangerous enemies using an arsenal of magic and alchemic weapons.

Ziggurat is currently priced at $15 on Steam and discounted by 75% on the Humble Store, meaning that you could get it for $3.74 instead of $15.

Winward, an action-filled multiplayer sandbox game that was released in May 2015, puts you in control of a ship and asks you to sail a procedurally generated world filled with towns that need your help and pirates that want to fight you. As the towns grow, they’ll offer more quests; and as you venture further and further, you’ll meet dangerous pirates that will attempt to take what's rightfully yours.

Winward is currently priced at $10 on Steam and discounted by 65% on the Humble Store, meaning that you could get it for $3.49 instead of $10.

SteamWorld Heist, a turn-based strategy action shooter that was released in June 2016, puts you in charge of a steam-driven pirate crew and asks you to lead them into battle. What makes SteamWorld Heist different from other games of this kind is that it lets you manually aim the guns. All the levels are procedurally generated, your robots can be upgrade with unique abilities, the gameplay is focused more on skill rather than luck.

SteamWorld Heist is currently priced at $15 on Steam and the Humble Store.

Quick recap. If you were to purchase Ziggurat, Windward, and SteamWorld Heist from Steam, you’d have to part with close to $40. Since Ziggurat and Windward are discounted on the Humble Store, you could get all three games for $22 and some change. But why would you do that when you could get all three for just $1 via the Humble Indie Bundle 18?


Pay $7.5 for Kentucky Route Zero, Beholder, Goat Simulator GOATY, and more

Pay more than the average of about $7.5 and you’ll get 3 games that would normally set you back $63 dollars. Right now, you can get Kentucky Route Zero, Beholder, and Goat Simulator GOATY. More games will be added to the list on Tuesday, May 23, at 11PM Pacific Time.




Kentucky Route Zero, an episodic point and click adventure game that was released in January 2013, is based on the premise that there’s a secret highway in the caves beneath Kentucky and there are mysterious folk who travel it. The game delights with its atmosphere, unique art, and haunting score.

Kentucky Route Zero is currently priced at $25 or €23 on both Steam and the Humble Store. Please note that the game is split into five acts and the final fifth act has yet to be released.

Beholder, a video game that was released back in November 2016, takes place in a grim dystopian future where the state controls every aspect of private and public life. You play as Carl, a landlord whose main task isn’t to make life easy for the tenants, but to spy on them and report anyone who might be plotting against the state. Will you do what the state asks and basically become a cog in a totalitarian machine, or will you cling to your humanity and empathize with others? Your actions and decisions have consequences and will influence how the game ends.

Beholder is currently priced at $10 on Steam and discounted by 55% on the Humble Store, meaning that you could get it for $4.5 instead of $10.

Goat Simulator, the video game that was released as an April Fools' Day joke back in 2014, lets you control a goat, explore an open world, and try to do as much damage as possible. If you’ve ever dreamed about being a goat, then this game will make your dreams a reality.

Goat Simulator GOATY, which includes the base game and all DLCs, is currently priced at $27.85 on Steam.

Quick recap. To get all 6 games presented so far, you’d have to part with more than $100 on Steam. So why pay that much when you can get them for close to $8 via the Humble Indie Bundle 18? And don’t forget that more games will be added to the bundle on Tuesday, May 23. Everyone who pays more than the average price will automatically receive these games.


Pay $13 for Owlboy

Anyone who pays $13 for the Humble Indie Bundle 18 will unlock Owlboy, a game that’s regularly priced at $25, and all six games presented so far, which are worth more than $100 on Steam.




Owlboy is a platform-adventure video game that was released in November 2016. The main character is Otus, an owl-human hybrid who can fly. But Otus is a mute and he has problems living up to the expectations of owl-hood. To make things worse, sky pirates have attacked Otus’ village in the sky. Obviously, this means that Otus has to overcome his problems to save his friends and village from the pirates.

Owlboy is currently priced at $25 and €23 on Steam and the Humble Store. The Collector's Edition, which contains the Owlboy game and original soundtrack, is priced at $35 and €26 on the Humble Store. On Steam, the Collector's edition is discounted by 10%, priced at $32 and €30.

If you really want the Owlboy game + OST, then pay more than $13 for the Humble Indie Bundle 18. You'll get the Owlboy OST and the Kentucky Route Zero OST as a bonus.

All 7 games that are part of the Humble Indie Bundle 18 are offered DRM-free and also via Steam key. The games can be redeemed for PC, Mac, and Linux.
