Humble Bundle has been hard at work putting together another cross-platform bundle sale: the Humble Bundle for Android #2!
Be sure to watch it in HD!
Pay what you want for the bundle today and receive instant access to Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of: Zen Bound 2, Avadon: The Black Fortress, Canabalt, and Cogs. And if you pay more than the average price, you'll also get Swords and Soldiers!
Each and every game is a gem never-before-seen on Android, and most are completely new to the Linux platform as well! (Cogs was ported to Linux for a previous bundle.) As per bundle tradition, purchases over $1.00 will receive keys to redeem the games on Steam. (Canabalt is an exception; as it is not currently on Steam.)
This promotion is about more than just excellent games. Soundtracks for Zen Bound 2, Canabalt, Cogs are included with each purchase, and the Swords & Soldiers soundtrack is included for users who beat the average. You can also optionally designate part of your purchase to the Child's Play Charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, two savvy and scrappy non-profit organizations.
And now, for the game showcase...
Zen Bound 2
Zen Bound 2 is a ground-breaking, meditative puzzler that defies convention. Players are given a wooden figurine, which must be wrapped in twine through creative rotation. The twine triggers splashes of paint that cover the ornament, and players are loosely rewarded for using as little twine as possible to cover the object. Zen Bound 2 has been a iOS best-seller, and we're thrilled to be bringing it to Android. Customers will also receive the excellent game soundtrack Bound along with the remix soundtrack, Rebound.
Canabalt is the sublime, indie parkour platformer originally designed by Adam Saltsman. It involves running through a city during an alien invasion and jumping from rooftop-to-rooftop. The game generates a different set of challenges for each run, with various obstacles and pitfalls waiting to drop unwitting players to their doom.
The Windows, Mac, and Linux desktop versions feature a 2-player hotseat mode formerly exclusive to the Winnitron arcade machine; and the Android version includes optional 3D effects, making the pixels pop like never before. The soundtrack to Canabalt, created by the inimitable Danny Baranowsky, is included for all purchasers of the Humble Bundle for Android 2.
Avadon: The Black Fortress
Avadon: The Black Fortress is the RPG fantasy saga from Jeff Vogel's Spiderweb Software, an indie studio well-known for sprawling adventures and intricate plots. It layers on the best of classic RPG elements to create a true epic: four classes, hundreds of items, dozens of spells and abilities, secret quests, and multiple endings. In the Humble Bundle for Android 2, it's available for the first time on Linux and Android tablets. (Due to the intricate nature of the game, the Android version is tablet-only.)
Cogs is a much-lauded, steampunk 3D puzzle game that gives the player mechanical structures that need to be fixed in order to function properly. The puzzles involve creating the right arrangement of gears, pipes, and other Victorian-esque technologies in order to strike bells, turn propellers, and channel steam.
Swords and Soldiers
Swords and Soldiers is a vibrant, side-scrolling strategy game making a debut on Linux and Android in this promotion. The tight, balanced gameplay is perfect for gamers seeking a fun, casual, strategy experience. Players must spawn the right units to gather resources and overrun the opponent's base, and the included soundtrack will fill your headphones with the drama of battle. Three diverse factions, multiplayer, and challenge modes provide gobs of colorful gameplay if you beat the average!
The Humble Bundle for Anroid #2 will only be available for a limited time, so check out the site and get your bundle today!
