The only games in the bundle that piqued my interests are A Dance of Ice and Fire, Baba is You, Sky Rogue and the few shmups. Still far better than the BLM bundle.

Protip: Pause your membership and get an 4 dollar off coupon for hanging on ;-)
How long do you need to stay unsubbed for that? I never got one...

New choice bundle starts always on the first tuesday of the month, CC gets automatically charged a week earlier, on the last tuesday of the month.

To get a 4$ discount you have to pause a month and then attempt to pause another month just before the card gets charged, I do it a day before, I don't know how wide the window really is, probably a week, if you try too early you'll get only 2$ discount.

I alternate two classic plan accounts so all choice bundles I buy cost me 8$.

Said I wasn't gonna do recommendations but I do have to cheat once again to mention Don't Escape 4 Days to Survive. That's a really nice little point and click adventure game with extremely logical "Puzzles" which most of the time aren't puzzles and are just "Did the player think X would happen because it would make sense" and punishing you if you didn't, and there's even varying degrees of success and some C&C. Didn't notice that one in the bundle at first but saw it as I've been continually digging and if you like adventure games at all it's damn good.

Only about a third of the way through the list and I've found a solid handful of promising stuff and a whole fucking lot that looks worth a download to check out. Going to have to download one of those singleplayer pen and paper strategy games, too. Have no fucking idea how that would work or be any fun but with this I guess I'll see. As an example, this: https://blackwellwriter.itch.io/umbra-a-solo-game-of-final-frontiers
Paper, pencil, and deck of playing cards. Dude did a Dorf Fort and a Dungeon Keeper version too, both also in the bundle. I assume 90% of the pen and paper RPGs in here are "Get together with friends and use your imaginations!", particularly the ones that mention no/light math, but some sorta base building strategy game solo play thing needs to be checked out. Eventually.

I remember Don't escape 1-3 being free flash games on newgrounds or sth. They are brilliant. Also recommend Deep sleep series from the same guy (scriptwelder).

Itch IS steaming elephant diarrhea but go to https://itch.io/my-purchases and click "Bundles" and that has your link, and you have to manually add things you're interested in to your library by clicking the download button on each individual thing from there.

I'm actually glad they don't automatically add it to your library. Saves me from having to hide a bunch of crap in my Playnite client. There's some addons/scripts that do it for you if you want but I wouldn't recommend cluttering up your library with crap you're never gonna play.

Yeah, once again Humble is beat at their own game. Funny part is there are a number of games in both bundles.

Nice bundle but I think I'll pass on it. Satisfactory's the only game in there that really catches my eye, lotta good games in it but it feels like most were in other Humble bundles so I'm already set on most of 'em.
I know it’s for charity but the two that most interest me, Satisfactory and Pawnbarian, at full price together are less than the cost of the bundle. Hmmmm. Gotta think about it a little more.

Yeah. Too good to pass up even if a lot are STEAM. I'll just have to sacrifice a laptop to the STEAM CLIENT.

I already had this one. Not sure if anyone can redeem it.


Skullgirls 2nd Encore
0QQYX-NLCYB-B23YQ

What's really funny is the bundle includes a DLC
Dagon: by H. P. Lovecraft - The Eldritch Box DLC

I can't redeem it because I don't have the main game... which is free but I can't add it to my collection? Uh what?

Click "Install game" from within Steam itself, it'll pop up a window asking where you want to install it to, how much space it'll take, etc. When that window comes up you can cancel out of it and not actually install the game, but starting the process like that ties the game to your account. Once the game's on your account you should be able to add the DLC to your account.

Another shit-skipped month. At this rate I'll cancel altogether soon.
