After a week the Humble Nindie Bundle has raised over $500,000 and sold more than 58,000 bundles; eShop gamers in the Americas have had the option of paying whatever they want for three games, or adding an extra five titles by paying just $10 - some have been voluntarily paying much more, of course. It's a first for Humble Bundle in tackling consoles, and has emphasized Nintendo's eagerness to take a punt with new eShop ideas.
As Humble Bundle aficionados know only too well, though, the opening batch of games is always boosted with additions during the campaign. The Nindie Bundle is no different, and it's now confirmed that three new titles are available for those that pay over the average amount (currently a little over $9); the additions bring a mix of Wii U and 3DS options.
- Sportsball (Wii U)
- BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien (Wii U)
- Gunman Clive (3DS)
The mid-promotion deal often drives a second wind of sales momentum in these bundles, so it'll be interesting to see whether that'll be the case here. It's worth noting that if you paid over the average when you previously bought the bundle you get these extras automatically, so they're an extra bonus on your purchase.
Are you a happy Nindie Bundle owner with these extras, or are you tempted to hop off the fence and join in now that the list of games has expanded? Let us know in the comments below, and you can check out full details on the Humble Bundle website; remember the deal ends on 9th June.
If only it was available in the UK...
Eh, I'm probably going to take a pass on this bundle then. I was hoping for Shovel Knight, and I already own Gunman Clive 1.
On the plus side, I did pick up the weekly bundle. One less game off my wishlist.
Eh, the only one I want is Gunman Clive, and that's only $1.99 on the eshop. Oh well. This was still an awesome thing.
3 games I don't have! Awesome for me. Guess I need to download these.
Alrighty!!!!!!! Glad to see Bit Trip (I've been meaning to get it forever...) and now that we're although all the games, here are my final thoughts. In terms of 3DS games...wee bit disappointing, but hey you know what??? They're all great games and sure I had almost all but two (OilOil and Moon) I've got plenty of 3DS games to play so I'll be set for a long while. (And I am the HandheldGuru...after all so I guess that is understandable) Now the Wii U, I sadly seldom play it, but after this bundle I'll be in 7th Wii U heaven for a long time to come. Some really great games, that I can't wait to play. Thank god summer starts tomorrow!!!
Nice. I was expecting Bit.Tip Runner 2, actually. I'll pick this bundle up eventually.
I wasn't going to partake... until I realized that for a $10 donation I would get to try a bunch of games that I otherwise would have never bought and some of the codes for 3DS I can give to my nephew...
I will probably try most of the games for a few minutes and never play them again, but it's still worth it considering the price.
The bundle was already a great deal in my opinion, these games are icing on the cake. Sportsball in particular is an exciting add - a game that looked awesome, but wasn't really on my radar because I don't get a lot of local multiplayer these days.
Nothing to complain about.
FYI... it is only available for a little less than one more week. Don't miss it.
There are only two games I don't have in this whole bundle, but considering it'd cost me $25 to get them separately, I can't pass this up, anyway. Some of these may end up as giveaways on WiiWareWave...
I picked up the whole bundle when I first heard. 5 of the games I actually already had, but some friends and family were happy to get them instead. What a great deal for the consumer but I hope it is truly a positive for the developers.
Does anyone here have experience with SteamWorld Dig? I noticed it said it was Metroidvania-esqe in the description. It's the only other game (aside from Moon Chronicles Ep 1 and maybe Gaucamelee, the latter of which is also Metroidvania-esqe) that seems to stand out for me.
I basically owned everything but got the bundle anyway so I could spread this Nintendo fever! To my friends,because I care
@DarthNocturnal I actually just finished SWD this morning. I absolutely loved it. Very addictive. Definitely Metroid-esque, and you can totally explore, but it's more linear/obvious where to go to simply complete it. Not too long (I beat it in just over 4 hours), but I'll definitely be replaying it because it was so much fun. The bundle is more than worth it for SWD and Guacamelee (which I also just got, and have played about half of-it's fantastic...probably even better than SWD) alone.
Awesome for people who don't have these games. And great to see early adopters of the Bundle still get the new extras.
Steamworld Dig is worth the purchase. Essentially, it's an exploration game, but combines elements of gathering items to improve your character with puzzle-solving and fighting enemies. But, as Krambo42 just stated, I would easily pay $10 just for Guacamelee - that game is much closer to a Metroidvania game (or Castlevania 2) and offers so much depth.
Now this is tempting
@holygeez03 Good call, I added the end date to the article too.
Happy to get Sportsball. I was hoping for Shantae and Ultratron but maybe next time
@DarthNocturnal the only metroidvania in that game is upgrades which makes travelling easier after defeating certain dungeon, boss with fixed attack patterns, and some platforming. Steam world dig is basically a digging game. Dig deep collecting stuff to be sold, buy upgrade for your equipment so you can dig deeper.
For you Steamworld Dig players: I hope you went back to the old cave rooms when you got your upgraded powers. There are some cool secret areas to unlock that you couldn't get to earlier in the game, including an awesome homage to the underground level 1-2 of Super Mario Bros!
Steam World Dig and Guacamelee are, at their hearts, platformers (like, really good looking 8-bit platformers, and that is fine by me). The Fall actually has an eerie Metroid vibe, but haven't really played it know whether its a platformer.
I already have 6 of the 11 featured games......I wish I could choose my own games. >:[
Extremely happy to see Sportsball get more recognition. It's an ideal couch multiplayer game, so that can be a hard sell when there are so many unknown variables introducing a game to a group of friends. Runner2 is a nice addition, likely owned by many yet also hopefully appreciated by those who haven't bought or played it.
Decided to get the bundle afterall. Thanks for the input all.
Also, it's my understanding that the multi-platfirm games unlock on both platforms with one code?
Man, this was great. I had many of these on my 3DS already, but I just passed those codes on to my lady. Every Wii U game was a download for me! I feel like I stole from the eShop considering how good some these are! (i.e. Guacamelee, SteamWorld Dig, and Mighty Switch Force.)
If there's one downside to be a devoted e-Shop buyer, it's that it becomes really hard to be swayed by a great promotion such as this, as I own the vast majority of what's on offer. I wish Nintendo would add a few Virtual Console games as well - it would certainly help bridge the gap between Club Nintendo and their next consumer fidelity platform.
Yes! I tried out Sportsball at PAX South and I've been meaning to get it ever since!
It's been said so many times but il'll say it again anyway in the hope that someone, somewhere, is counting; I would love this to come to the U.K.
Welp, I suppose I have the justification to contribute now. I own most of the games that debuted in the promotion last week, but with the addition of these last three games, I can now donate an amount above the average while acquiring a few new games for myself and giving some to my friends.
What is the picture on the top of the article from?
I'm going to Get Bit.Trip, I guess.
@DarthNocturnal You get one Wii U code and one 3DS code for OlliOlli. Using either code unlocks the other version as a free download if you have a Wii U and 3DS with the same NNID . So you get both games WITHOUT using only one code. You can then gift the other to a friend.
Steamworld Dig, however, does not already have a cross-buy promotion, so if you want the game on both your 3DS and Wii U, you have to use both codes.
Think of it like getting two copies of Steamworld Dig and four copies of OlliOlli.
@bro2dragons that is sweet did not realize the the OlliOlli code gave both 3DS and WiiU games in the one code! I had already give the 3DS code to a friend and had kept the WiiU for myself.
Good deal if you ask me
I've tried Moon Chronicles... did the developers actually calibrate the N3DS' C stick to the game? It'll move quickly, but then slow to a crawl, and even putting extra pressure doesn't work. Odd, given that the stick worked fine for MH4U and MM3D. And Ironfall Invasion, while not perfect, was a bit better.
OK, fair enough. I didn't think crossbuy was supported at this level anyway.
I already have those three except sportsball which doesn't interest me at all. I need to stop buying video games.
I'm from the UK and I'm throwing money at the screen, but nothing's happening
Already have Runner 2 and Gunman Clive, sigh. Oh well, at least there's Sportsball.
Cooommeee ooooonnnn! Why put the game/s I bought the first day I bought my (new)3ds!?!?!?
Living in the future is awesome. If I went back in time and told my 14 year old self how easy/inexpensive it would be to get great games for my consoles from the comfort of my own house, he would NEVER BELIEVE IT. And he would ask what happened to my/his (our?) hair.
Here are codes for the games released today. I don't really need the games. I only wished to donate to charity. Please post if you've taken a code. Thank you.
Gunman Clive: A08L8TD81VS0FLPK
If I would have known about this Bundle I would have held out and not already bought all of these. There are only 2 games I don't own but I'm not really interested in the 2 anyway. I'm going to start waiting for these bundles if they are going to have them in the future. It would also be cool to see more Flash sales in the Eshop. Flash sales Once a month would be a lot of fun in my oppinion
@Doggedfrog I just took the three games, thank you!
@nignacio You're welcome Have fun!
Anyone want Gunman Clive and Mighty Switch Force? Here ya go!
Just be sure to thank me if the download works!
Can we even share the code? I believe the TOS state it's for personal use. I paid more than average, and only use Steamworld Dig, Moon Chronicle, Olli Olli and Woah Dave. I don't have a Wii U and already have Gunman Clive. I will gladly share the rest of my codes to anyone, but I don't want to breach the TOS (for pure respect to Humble Bundle and the developers). Please enlighten me.
Darn, I was hoping for something to push me over the edge. But as it stands I've already got the ones I'm interested in on Steam, and can't justify paying ten bucks to be able to play them on my Nintendo systems. Well, maybe next time!
I only have. Guacamelee! out of this entire set so I am definently getting this.
Ehh, could've been better. I did look up Sportsball recently before this bundle so it's nice being able to just try (or rather straight up own) the full game. Plus I've had Runner 2 on Steam but I've never beaten it, so maybe now having it on a good console and not a bad laptop will give me more of an incentive to finish up. Gunman Clive is like $1.99 already so it feels like a waste of potential when better candidates could've taken up the spot. These 3 choices could've been better imo, but I'll take them all the same, they're still good games that'll appeal to others.
I suppose I was hoping for Shantae and the Pirate's Curse or Shovel Knight, but we all know that would've been too good to be true.
@kiigu I don't think it's that bad if you give the codes to friends as a gift or something. They ARE under YOUR ownership now after all. I think it's nicer if you just give out spare keys to people you feel deserve them rather than, say, sell your key to profit off of it on eBay or something like many other people do with bundle keys.
@HandheldGuru97 Same here! And sportsball, been on the indefinite backlog but now they are MINE!!!!
@sWiTcHeRoO Yeah, I had a handful of duplicates in here ... half actually but I still saved over a $100 than getting these all at full retail! I just divied out the extra codes to friends and now I'm a rock star
I guess I'll give out some codes too.
Woah Dave: A08MQP0N12LE68YP
Moon Chronicles Episode 1: A08M63J52D1X669T
SteamWord Dig 3DS: A08LNXXL0BTRDEK2
I already have those games so I hope whoever gets them enjoys them, and lets everyone else know they are claimed.
@dpullam Captain Toad attempted to get Moon Chronicles. Attempt failed due to code already registered Noooo!
So if I pay 25$ I get all games?
if you pay $10, you get all those games!
The site proposes that you pay $25, but $10 will get you all games.
@Hero-of-WiiU I only had to pay $10. You have to pay more than the average. It should say somewhere on the page what that is.
@Hero-of-WiiU $1 for the first three games, average price for the second bunch (which includes today's additions), and $10 for all of it.
Here is my code for "BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien" for Wii U; because only butt-holes try to use ebay to profit off of charities!
I've only been playing Stealth Inc. 2 and Splatoon these past few days.
I will admit that Woah Dave! and OlliOlli were a lot better than I thought they'd be...as for The Fall, I'm REALLY excited to keep playing that (but Splatoon, though...)
I bought the bundle last week for 10 bucks. How do I get the keys for the three added games? They're not automatically in my key history on humble bundle.
did you use the link they emailed you when you ordered the bundle?
Its a great game- I would be shocked if you didn't love it. But also note that Stealth Inc 2 is an incredible game as well, as is Olli Olli and Gunman Clive. And I've heard great things about Sportsball for local multiplayer- no I haven't actually played it for myself yet. Guess I will be soon though since I paid more than the average last week!
@Shworange check receipt? I didn't do this bc I have nearly all of them, but I have had to get codes on my receipts before.
So basically for the cost of a microgram of black truffle I get 10 games I don't own and 2 others I can give away. Works for me.
I wish Nintendo do these kind of bundles. But their bundles are always terrible.
It's a bit sad that there is only 1 3DS extra, and one that most (including myself) already have.
I still like the overall mix the indies offered up. Hopefully, they do continue this and eventually make it international — a global effort would only give more donation opportunity to charities!
Are Europeans still whining about this?
You called it. I just used the website, not the email. Thank you very much.
Thanks. I went through the email. Got it. I appreciate the help.
Awesome, was hoping for gunman Clive and sportsball. I already paid enough to get both. This has been a great bundle. Here's hoping there's another in the future.
Please stop the on-rails llama pompadour already, it is an awesome deal and there is no reason to complain.
The three games added aren't much use to me personally since I don't have a Wii U and already own Gunman Clive. I've already gotten more then my money's worth from this deal though. These still are good games on top of an already great deal. I've heard good things about Runner 2, but I haven't even beaten Runner 1.
I keep seeing folks here attest to the cross-buy promo of OlliOlli working with these codes, but I didn't see anything in my receipt(s) to that end. Remindeds me of my...misguided Ultimate NES Remix redemption from Club Nintendo, for which the "free theme" is only if you buy it from the eShop.
Considering that many of these games are normally above nine bucks at their normal price being able to pay so little for such good games is pretty much irresistible. Highly recommended.
@TJF588 the cross buy works, but not with codes as usual, the game will cost 0 dollars to download on the eshop of other system.
@Bachattack Sure, I'll use them. Don't need the Gunman Clive or Woah Dave! codes though.
@Morpheel Well crud, wish I'd realized. Still, for what y' get and how unlikely it is anyone close to me'd play it, I'm fine with this.
@IceClimbers just add yahoo.com to my user name and email me don't want someone taking them
@Bachattack Ok, sent you the email.
@Bachattack Thanks man!
@IceClimbers No Problem!!
If you don't own Runner 2 yet, the price of the entire bundle would be more than worth it for that game alone in my opinion. Utter brilliance.
Why was the average donation a $9.20? Those people could've paid 0.80 cents more for 5 more games!!! :I
Anyway, I'm a bit disappointed in these new additions as I already own Bit Trip Runner 2 on my 360 and got Gunman Clive when it was new.
At least I can give 'em away.
Btw, it's important to note that you shoukd give one of your OliOli codes away to some one. OlliOlli has the crossbuy thing going on.
Still no for EU?!
@Spacey "Why was the average donation a $9.20? Those people could've paid 0.80 cents more for 5 more games!!!"
I'd imagine the "average" here is the mean, rather than the mode.
i.e. Lots of people paid a dollar or two, and lot's paid fifteen or so dollars - making the (mean) average just under ten dollars,
Anyone got an extra code for the 3DS , would it be alright if i have 'em?
@FuseBlues Ah.... you're right.
I already own 2 of the 3, and I can't say Sportsball interests me much, but this was already a great deal so no complaints here. Really hope this wasn't a one-off and they do it again in the future.
I already have Gunman Clive, so here you go guys:
@Captain_Gonru - Thanks. I finally figured that out yesterday and thought I went back and deleted my comment, guess I forgot.
I was really excited when I saw that pic, thought there was some open world game being added I had missed, I can't play endless runners, no reflexes. It's like one long minecart level in Donkey Kong. I don't play rhythm games either, my rthym is as bad as my reflexes, though Rayman music levels were ok once I learned the songs.
I'm still debating buying this. 11 games for $10 is great, but when am I going to play them? Showed my kids a bunch of vids and nothing tickled their fancy.
I pulled the trigger on this as a 'vote with my dollar' situation. I had a touch over half of the available titles but my little brother and sister in law were by yesterday and having both recently gotten 3DSs and with a WiiU at home, they were more than happy to add a rack of games. This was a super solid bundle and I hope to see more in the future. Well done Nintendo and Indie Devs.
Judging by how successful this is, maybe it will come to the UK? Maybe? Please?
I still haven't received an email yet with codes for these three games. I paid the full $10, so I should get them. Is there anything I need to do to ensure that I get the three codes?
Here's another Gunman Clive code for the community:
@Rockman55 Looks like somebody beat me to it Oh well, very cool of you (and everybody else who is doing it) to give these codes away!
@Goob bundles not around for ever though!
Sadly this bundle has 1 more Wii U than 3DS
Not that its that bad, but 2 of the items are on BOTH.
I'll try and get this weekend, then give the olliolii code to my friend if he can use, if not I'll give it away on reddit. (the 3ds code that is)
@Captain_Gonru Y - Yeah, I sitll may buy it and give the Guacamele code to my brother in law who got his kid a Wii U for Hanakuh but I just emailed him adn he still hasn't put it online, hasn't even set up a NNID, so there really are people like that out there. And he's not an idiot, he teaches high school chem, but he's also the soccer coach, maybe AD by now, so all their time is spent outdoors.
And I grew up playing Joust w/ my friends on our Atari so yeah Sportsball would get some play. They could have just called it Joust Remastered.
Met game was good. First guy in this video - which I didnt take but whoever did had to be real close to us - flew right over our heads, it was freaky.
Not as freaky as $59.25 for 3 hamburgers, iced teas and french fries though, that was disturbing. Next time we go - Steve Miller Band concert in 3 weeks - we're going to draw straws and eat one of the family members.
