Humble’s latest Bundle is the ninth in the series of Jumbo bundles. As the name suggests, these gather up larger and more popular indie gems into one big package where – as per normal – the more you pay, the more you get.

This ninth Jumbo bundle includes river-bound roguelike The Flame in the Flood, Left4Deadalike Warhammer Vermintide, clumsylike platformer Human Fall Flat, trenchalike shooter Verdun and we-really-like American Truck Simulator, among others for up to $10/ 8. A portion of your money will go to fund the AbleGamers Foundation charity or any other charity of your choosing if you have a specific one in mind.

The Humble Jumbo Bundle 9 is live now and up for the better part of the next two weeks, if it seems like your thing. More games are set to be added at the end of next week, as well, so check back to see what else your money will have gotten you.

Infested Planet [official site] is a game that actively tries to destroy you. No, really. Thousands of bug-like aliens are out to kill you and they can even mutate as you wipe them out to become better suited to annihilating you. Because they’re jerks and that’s all they care about. Graham dug Infested Planet in 2014 and if you did too, good news: now it’s been expanded with procedural campaigns in new DLC. … [visit site to read more]

The accompanying patch changes a lot of things about the game. Best of all, you don't need the DLC to enjoy it. Here are some of the highlights:
  • Added new mutations and reworked old ones
  • Revised Scout weapon class
  • Story campaign now has a difficulty selector
  • Many other small tweaks to game balance

On October 10th, Infested Planet will be getting a massive update. The new "Planetary Campaign" DLC will add randomly generated campaigns to the game.



You start out outnumbered by the enemy and with primitive technology. As you fight battles and conquer the map, you can unlock new technology to use in tactical portion of the game.

The tech progression is unique for every single campaign, so you have to be flexible in what weapons you use. Even Infested Planet veterans will find some new tech that's exclusive to the DLC.



Of course, it wouldn't be Infested Planet if the enemy didn't mutate to counter your tactics. The aliens analyse your play style, evolve campaign mutations and force you to adapt.



Put your general's hat back on and return to Infested Planet on October 10th!

This is The Mechanic, where Alex Wiltshire invites a developer to help him put their game up on blocks and take a wrench to hack out its best feature, just to see how it works. It s about the sweat, grease and genius behind the little things that make games special.>

Infested Planet [official site] is an RTS that channels Starship Troopers. You control a small squad of soldiers fighting their way through caverns of hives that endlessly churn out insectoid bugs. The body count reaches tens of thousands as you capture the hives, steadily gaining and conceding ground to make best use of your limited resources. It s an intensely dynamic game of observing and controlling flows of bugs and continually respec-ing your forces, because you re always up against:
