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: Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered
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.
Why you doing this?
I hate money. That and I realized I've been subbed to the monthly for over six 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 4th 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 please come save me ;-;.

P.S. Just a small note: The event will go on a short hiatus for the month of October and will resume on November 1st. Reason being is that I'll be on vacation and I can't be bothered.

Thanks for another MiaM!
Enjoy your vacation next month
I didn't think I would, but I just managed to do it again! This time in less than two weeks. I played:
A Plague Tale: Innocence: Achievements ("Coronation")
In Sound Mind: Achievements ("Patients and Grace")
Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered: Achievements ("Red Dawn")
TSIOQUE: Achievements ("And they lived happily ever after...?")
Destroy All Humans!: Achievements ("For the Glory of the Furon Empire!")
Emily is Away <3: Achievements ("Emily Ending")
All the best for your vacation!!! Hope you are able to have fun and rest.
Technically done. Had to take the cheat-y route with Drake Hollow due to time constraints. I still plan on playing the game to the end (I've put it off for too long even I had my reasons and I like it so far) but doing things this way gives a decent incentive for me to see it through. Can replace it with something else though if needed.
edit: swapped out Drake Hollow for Emily is Away <3. Should be good now.
Finally done :)
A bit late, but finally done.
Ring of Pain: fun game. Took me like 20 hours to beat it for the first time.. RNG was not great to me!
Only a few games later I managed to complete the other ending on the Medium difficulty - RNG seemed to love me that game with my drops and enemy placement! Very similar to Slay the Spire, but I have enjoyed this more so far.
Just realised that I have played two games funded by Film Victoria this month! (RoP and Frog)
For some reason I didn't feel like playing Swords of Ditto - so ended up playing Smile for Me, a quick game to make the end of this event :D
Ooh. I've got a busy month planned, but i'll try my best to join. If I dont have the time, I wish you a happy vacation CJ <3
Another great gib. 😎
Neat! Let's do this.
Shenmue 3 is surprisingly up my alley but just the small bit I've played is enough to tell me that I will probably not be able to finish it in time. Replacing it this time with Genesis Noir.
For Drake Hollow I'm looking for the achievement: Homeward.

Got it. Replaced Drake Hollow with Emily Is Away <3.
Spidey catches me in his web and pulls me back in for a challenge.
I just want to let you know that due to ongoing events there is no way you can gift Spiderman to Russia or Belarus
All the keys are region restricted and the game is unavailable in Russian Steam store
Hmm. This is how you know I did my research -.-. Gotta think on how I want to handle this. For the time being, the event is open to all. Thanks for the info.
Yeah, that the reason I haven't been participating for several months by now, I think last event with a prize that could be activated in Russia was in May.
Three summer months' games are not available for purchase in Russia, but looks like they don't have in-store region locks (for Russia), so you'd probably be able to activate them as gifts from Canada. Spider-Man on the other hand does have such lock. Apparently there were keys for Russia available at 3rd parties, but seems they've run out of them and not necessarily will be resupplied.
I won't enter this month cause I'm committed to finish Death Stranding on game pass and that will take quite a while, but thanks CJ for yet another great giveaway :) Have a good vacation!
I am not sure with RE5 if I have right edition, don't see dlcs in my library. I will play base game and may try replace if it won't work.
* I didn't like the game, I wouldn't finish it.
** I played a few hours offline and finished the game, the achievements glitched and I had to play it again.
Hi, I am assuming that if I have a non steam copy of a game that was sold as a steam copy I cant use it?
That is correct.
Not sure how to do the fancy tables but
Gas Station Simulator https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561199195189982/stats/1149620/?tab=achievements
In Sound Mind https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561199195189982/stats/1119980/?tab=achievements
SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561199195189982/stats/690040/?tab=achievements
I haven't decided what else to play this month, will update when I have decided
This should help, scroll down to the bottom:
Someday I will run out of games from monthly due to your event CJ
But not this month yet, so count me in.
Someday I will run out of monthly games to play :D
You will never run out of monthly games to play, because each month there's at least 8 new ones :D
Aside the fact that I usually only want 1/8 of those
it would be hard to play them all if they all are long :P
Fell off the wagon hard last month, but time to get back on for Spidey's sake.
Edit: I lied... probably
I always love when participants post their experiences, simply checking the thread just for these, so thanks for posting yours ♥
