Hello and welcome to the madness!
The challenge is simple: Play and beat any 6 games, starting today, that have been featured in any given Humble Monthly/Choice bundle in one month.

The prize: 2x Death's Door
Note: This means I'm giving away two copies of the game and will have 2 winners.

Game length does not matter and I'm not looking for 100% achievement runs. So long as you play and beat 6 games, I'm happy. You can go easy mode and play a bunch of 1h games or go crazy and play 6 +30h games. So long as they were in a monthly at a given point, it is all good.

Just post a comment with either screenshots/ achievements showing that you fulfilled the criteria and I'll add on Steam and give you the link. Feel free to share your thoughts on the games you've played, but it is not required.

FAQ:

Why you doing this?

I hate money. That and I realized I've been subbed to the monthly for over five years (yes it has been that long, I checked) and it occurred to me that I've barely touched the games I've gotten from it, let alone played them. Figured the same would be true for a few others, so I figured this is a good way to change that. A sensible person would probably unsub in this situation, but please refer to the beginning as to why that will not happen.

I've played the first X minutes of a game, can I pick it for the event?

No. You cannot have any play time or achievements prior to the start of the event. The only exception is idle time from farming Steam cards.

Can I play a MP only game?

No. It needs to have an "end" in order for me to count it as beaten, so it needs to have a campaign/story mode.

If a game was sold as a non-Steam copy in a bundle (origin/uplay/drm-free/etc), can I pick it as a choice if I own a Steam copy?

No. The reason being that those who own a Steam copy would have an extra option that would not be available to everyone who bought the same bundle. If the game was originally sold as a non-Steam copy, but Humble later provided steam keys to everyone who bought the bundle, then the game would be allowed.

Why six games?

The first few monthlies had 6/7 games in them so I went with that.

How long are you going to do this?

Until my credit card statements gives me nightmares.

This event "ends" on October 5th when the next HB Choice releases, though the giveaway itself will end the next day. If you manage to finish game number six in between that time, feel free to post, but know that I cannot guarantee that I'll be able to give you the link in time.

Good luck, have fun and stay safe.
Thanks for reading, and don't forget to be both confused and disappointed.

Apologies if this has been answered before, but I was wondering about games that have been in a Monthly or Choice but no Steam keys were provided (e.g. ENCODYA, Disjunction or even Assassin's Creed Origins), are they still valid for this event if we own them on Steam?

Interested in the reply as well but it seems as long as the game is on Steam and it was indeed included in the bundle, it would be valid, according to the rules CJ stated here.
I remember someone playing Copoka before and the game was included in a monthly as a DRM free game, before it was even on Steam so that would be the same here.

Sure, it was before the event but technically steam keys for Copoka were never given in the Humble Monthly. They only gave a DRM free copy in the monthly.

While Copoka was originally added to the bundle as a DRM free copy, Humble later gave everyone a steam copy if they purchased the bundle. This is why it would be allowed for this event, since everyone who purchase the bundle would have access to a steam copy.

I see your logic. Thanks for the (many) answers to the question CJ

other thing we can ask, is about redux/ encharted editions of games that where un HB

like, i played Metro Exodus, and some Time ago they give a free copy of Encharted Edition,
or, observer, that the original copy gives you a System Redux version for free.

this ones have diferent steam appID that the one/original gived on HB, but the games are the same with graphic changes/ better performance or DLC for free.

it may be others.

No. The reason being is that it would give some an extra option to choose from when compared to others who bought the exact same bundle. If a steam key is later provided by Humble to everyone who bought the bundle, then it would be fine. But so long as the only copy provided by Humble are non-Steam copies, they are not allowed for the purpose of this event.

This has come up before, but I didn't bother adding it to the FAQ since I thought humble would rarely include non-Steam copies. It is starting to look as though they will be more common, so I will add it to the FAQ moving forward.

I finished the previous event so fast I forgot I had! September, here we go!

Thanks for making it an absolute delight to slay games in my backlog, CJ. I don't think it would exactly be a chore but I'm notoriously hard to keep motivated to follow through on things.

Well I'm done with Forager, or rather, I'm done with my first playthrough. And already started another one haha
It's so fun and relaxing.

Reminds me of Portal Knights in a more minimalist way. Loved them both!

Nice! Yeah there's not really any way to fail, just lots of different little ways to keep going. I like how you can put any level of effort in and have success, from really planning the most efficient way to spend your time or just turning your brain off and doing whatever pops up.

how did you 100% it in 14 hours though? The Coin Collector achievement alone mathmatically takes almost that long.

lol right? I don't know where HLTB get their times sometimes. I know it's average playtime of people who are sharing their stats but with games like Forager or a lot of rogue-lite/like, they should just discard the card idling times because they completely screw the average.

It did indeed take a while to get those but once I started void runs, with all the drops in there, it made the "grind" faster though.

It's a shame Hopfrog dropped the game before the multiplayer update, that would have been brilliant.

Yeah and it seemed kind of crappy how they did it too, blaming others even though he touted himself as a solo developer...

I saw on reddit people were pretty pissed about the whole thing but I didn't really look into it.
I mean I get it on one hand. You can't expect a game to get expanded forever. Devs do need to move on and get other games sold. They don't live off advertising or anything :P but yeah he made promises he didn't keep and that sucks.

Still, he refunded people who claimed they bought the game for multiplayer.

No. "Play and beat any 6 games, starting today, that have been featured in any given Humble Monthly/Choice bundle in one month." The start date of the event is when the bundle launches which is September 7th for this month. Any game started prior to that cannot be used for this event.

Hiya CJ. Hope all is well. Ill try to play enough games this month to make this happen. :D

Question: I learned to speedrun Hollow Knight, but have put 0 hours into it on my Steam copy. If I play it on Steam, does that count or does it go against the spirit of the event? :P
