Copy pasta of a copy pasta of a copy pasta of a copy pasta of a copy pasta of a copy pasta of a copy pasta of a copy pasta since I'm just that lazy :D.

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: Control Ultimate Edition

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 nearly 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.

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 December 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 don't forget that daylight savings is bullshit

That sounds like fun. I do have an unreasonable amount of unplayed games.

So here the games I will try to finish:

  1. Sunless Sea
  2. Catherine Classic
  3. Bad North
  4. This is the Police
  5. Whispers of a Machine
  6. Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Good luck to all!

Shadow Tactics is such a great game, hope you enjoy it. Took me a long time to finish, but I'm an admittedly slow gamer.

Game Status
Townsmen - A Kingdom Rebuilt Finished
911 Operator Finished
Horace Finished
Little Misfortune Finished
Don't Escape: 4 Days to Survive Finished
TSIOQUE Finished

Just to be sure, is completing the campaign (achievements name it tutorial campaign) in Townsmen enough? The game also has a lot of stand-alone scenarios, but no way I'm willing to do all of those (the campaign already covers everything the game has to offer, the scenarios are just more of the same).

I allow it since it appears to an actual campaign with multiple chapters rather than just a single intro level.

Should all the six games be Humble Bundle monthly choice or some of them ?

Man i only want to know if all the 6 games i should beat must from monthly choice or not.

Yes. I copy-pasted from the post above because I thought you'd deduce the links of "elegible games" are only of Humble monthly/Choice.

They need to be from a monthly/choice, but they don't need to be from the same month

I've always wanted to try this but can usually get through a couple games in a month. I'm heading into a nice five day weekend and already have a couple complete so going to try!

Also, let me know if I'm doing anything wrong with the games I have listed. I wasn't sure what would be good criteria for completing Grid so went with the last career achievement.

Rover Mechanic Simulator - 100% Achievements
Crying Suns - Achievements unlocked for beating game
Grid Ultimate Editions - Achievement Best of the Best
Yakuza 0 - In progress
Little Misfortune - In progress
TBD!

Does not matter. The moment there is any play time outside of the event time window, it can no longer be accepted.

I probably read it on first edition of this event and forgot about this rule. But game was worth it anyway. The best from those 6.

Okay, hopefully seventh time's a charm as I really need a break from these, but it's really hard not to participate! Many thanks as always Cjcomplex :)

Here we go:
1 Hitman 2 - achievements

It's really just the second part of the 'first' Hitman and in this case it's great. More missions means more sandbox fun. I truly had a fantastic time playing both games.

2 Tsioque - achievements

Another beautifully drawn short adventure game for younger audience. It was okay, but I'm glad i had it from a bundle, as there are better ones in that category (e.g. The Inner World).

3 Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the first sin - achievements

That was my second souls game after DS3 and my inner rebel really wanted to like it more as it is the least loved part of the series. Sadly that wasn't the case. It's not all bad though - story is certainly clearer if not plainly better, I also liked the more melancholic vibes (as opposed to apocalyptic themes in DS3). Combat was a let down - almost every boss can be dealt with by clinging to his/her rear. They also don't have the presence or grativas like say Abyss Watchers or Pontiff Sulyvahn from ds3. The fights are simply not memorable. That beign said, the game itself was harder (for me at least) than ds3. Gank squads, npc invasions, lots of areas where you can fall, that can certainly be a postiive for someone, but I don't think I'll be replaying it anytime soon.

4 The Suicide of Rachel Foster - achievements

Ugh, that was awful. I don't want to spoil the story but it's really nonsense. The game itself is a railroady experience certainly inspired by Firewatch and Gone Home (both much, much better games). Shame cause the setting had at least some potential.

5 The Sexy Brutale - achievements

Oh, I liked that one. The premise of one day repeating over and over again is my soft spot - I first seen such thing in Xena: The Warrior Princess episode back in the late 90s. Then came The the Day of the Hedgehog, The Day After Tomorrow etc. In Sexy Brutale its merged with classic Agatha Christe whodounit and almost metroidvanialike exploring, unlocking new powers. Short fun game, recommended.

6 Desert Child - achievements

Best thing about Desert Child is surely its presentation. Soundtrack is fantastic, I also really liked the graphic style. Unfortunately the racing part is really basic. There are a few different stages, you can change weapons or upgrade your bike, but still each race feels the same, be it the very first one or the final clash for the championship of hmm Solar System i guess ;) I had a good time, but it could have been much better.

Wow this is amazing for you to do! I know my friend has humble bundle every month but I don't think he has played a single one of the games from it in the past half year at least.... Will you be doing this next month?
