Atari has been sued by the developers of the Roller Coaster Tycoon series of games, Frontier Development.
Another Humble Bundle is out, and this offering is focused around tycoon games. Launched on Nov 29, 2016, Humble Tycoon Simulator Bundle features Train Simulator 2016, RollerCoaster Tycoon: Deluxe, Democracy 3 and more.
“Simulator, alligator,” the Humble Tycoon Simulator Bundle’s description section states. “Want to be a car mechanic? A train driver? Political leader? Baseball manager? Owner of a pharmaceutical conglomerate? With this bundle, you can build the empire you’ve always dreamed of. Power! POWER!!”
Humble Tycoon Simulator Bundle’s tiers are straightforward enough. For $1 USD or more, Train Simulator 2016, Roller Coaster Tycoon: Deluxe and Out of the Park Baseball 17 are available. Beating the average lands buyers a copy of Democracy 3 Collector’s Edition, Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 and Big Pharma. For $12 USD or more, Youtubers Life is available. Normally, these games would land buyers a price tag of $140 USD. Instead, the total bundle is available for $12, saving approximately $128. Just in time for the holidays, too.
Charity donations go to DirectRelief and charity: water. Direct Relief provides medical relief to provide care to those who would otherwise go without via supplies for surgery, injuries, infection and more. Meanwhile, charity: water is dedicated to providing safe drinking water in developing countries.
Youtubers Life, which is currently in Early Access on Steam, is a tycoon simulator based on becoming a YouTube video star. The game holds critical acclaim from such outlets as Kotaku and IGN and has also won award nominations from the Spanish National Videogames Awards and the Indie Developer Burger Awards for its interesting and quirky premise.
As always, Humble Bundles only last for a limited amount of time. With Humble Tycoon Simulator Bundle clocking out on Dec 13, 2016 interested buyers should pick up the bundle sooner rather than later if they’re interested in the details. Meanwhile, check back in the coming weeks ahead for more Humble Bundle news.
Those who missed out on the Humble GameMaker Bundle don’t worry, there’s a new bundle on the site to replace it: Humble Jumbo Bundle 7. The bundle is a sequel to March’s strategy-themed Humble Jumbo Bundle 6 and features a variety of games, from Devil Daggers to Stronghold Crusader 2, Prison Architect to RollerCoaster Tycoon 2.
Runestone Keeper is the bundle’s first offering, with a “pay what you want” value. In the $1 USD tier, Humble Jumbo Bundle 7 offers Devil Daggers and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill Pack. If you beat the average contribution, you’ll also grab keys to Stronghold Crusader 2, Prison Architect and Punch Club. $9.99 or more will land you Miscreated, a hardcore post-apocalyptic survival game on Steam Early Access. That’s not all, of course. More games are on the way for Sept 27, 2016 too, if you’re conflicted about grabbing the bundle now. Of course, anyone who purchases the mid tier or above will be given the new games for free. And for those who want to stay in touch with Humble Bundle news, there’s also some Duelyst goodies if you send your email address to the site.
According to the official Humble Jumbo Bundle 7 description page, the bundle costs $173 USD in total at retail price. That means, for the $9.99 price, buyers save approximately $163. Heifer International and SpecialEffect are the recipients of any charity donations.
Overall, there’s a nice mixture of choices here in Humble Jumbo Bundle 7. From the iconic RollerCoaster Tycoon series, all the way down to Punch Club of Twitch fame, it’s hard to pass on the sale. With more games coming out next Tuesday, the bundle looks to be quite a deal. Don’t take your time to purchase the bundle, though; the sale ends in two weeks, just like the Humble GameMaker Bundle. So if you see something you’d like now, grab it before it’s too late!
