Humble is taking a few days out of its regularly scheduled weekly sales to put together something just a little bit different, and quite awesome.
The Female Protagonist Sale is exactly what it sounds like—a range of games with up to 80% off, all featuring female main characters. It also helps that all of these games happen to be pretty fantastic and range from high-budget action adventure Rise of the Tomb Raider to intimate, FMV indie game Her Story, all with sizeable discounts.
Her Story, for example, will cost you a meager $1.49, while the recently released Tacoma is down to $16. Both are worth a shot if you're into narrative-driven experiences and adventure games. Meanwhile, on the other side of things, SteamWorld Heist is a 2D stealth 'em up that'll only cost you $5.09 in this sale.
Failing that, we've got rhythm-based dungeon crawler Crypt of the NecroDancer for three bucks. Hard not to recommend that, really.
Here are some of the range's highlights:
- Bayonetta for £11.24 / $14.99 / €14.99
- Tacoma for £11.99 / $15.99 / €15.99
- Haydee for £5.49 / $7.49 / €7.49
- Alien Isolation: The Collection for £6.99 / $9.99 / €9.19
- Life is Strange Complete Season for £3.99 / $4.99 / €4.99
- Her Story for £1.24 / $1.49 / €1.49
- SteamWorld Heist for £3.73 / $5.09 / €5.09
- Crypt of the NecroDancer for £2.19 / $2.99 / €2.99
- Gone Home for £2.29 / $2.99 / €2.59
- VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action for £7.69 / $10.04 / €8.70
There's certainly a bunch of games to choose from and it's nice to see female protagonists celebrated by the industry, even in a very small way. Here's hoping this'll be the start of something bigger.
