Humble Bundle’s Winter Sale carries a freebie worth your while.
Online gaming store and charity support Humble Bundle announced today the beginning of their Winter Sale, with tons of great games at discounted prices, as well as a totally awesome freebie like A Story About My Uncle, a highly praised indie adventure game by Gone North Games.
A Story About My Uncle tells the story of a young boy searching for his uncle, a quest that begins in his cellar and ends up in an alien world that he never thought existed. Jumping and traversing through this adventure with the freedom of movement granted by a high-tech grappling hook proves to be a true blast while it also helps reinforce the game’s message about freedom and the joy of discovering the unknown.
This game is often described as a non-violent experience, maybe trying to differentiate itself from mainstream trends in the world of AAA gaming, but it helps to understand the essence of A Story About My Uncle: a strong bond between an uncle and his nephew based on exploration and the love for research and science. Its narrative also provides an interesting mystery to keep us engaged, trying to find out what happened to our beloved uncle.
Humble’s Winter Sale begins in a pretty strong way then, also offering interesting discounts on big companies like THQ Nordic, Capcom and CD Projekt Red; as well as highly regarded indies like Into The Breach, Papers Please, FTL, Darkest Dungeon, This War Of Mine and Hollow Knight, to name a few.
If you’d like to get a free copy of A Story About My Uncle you should hurry, as it’ll only be available while codes last or until 10AM PT/1 PM ET on January 12th. The Winter Sale will end on January 24th, so there’s still a bit more time to check that out.
Our boy from Buenos Aires, Juan has been a gamer for as long as he can remember (and possibly even longer than that). He loves a good story, and believes every indie game has a compelling one to tell.
