Copy pasta of copy pasta.

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: High On Life

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 you 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 seven 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 February 7th 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 have a laugh every now and then..

May I ask how does Darksburg counts as beaten then?
It seems like roguelike games are hard to determined as beaten. Maybe you can add some general requirements for beating roguelike games to the FAQ?

I would rather prefer it if people avoided those games all together. One of the reasons why I have the "ending" rule is to avoid making judgment calls. No two roguelikes are the same, so it will always be case by case, if they even allowed at all. This also goes for other "endless" type games like sims.

For Darksburg, there is the We Have Normality achievement.

Love the event! Hope you're holding out OK this winter!

Game Bundle Month Completion Requirement Completed Impressions
Blue Fire August 2021 The Source of Darkness Yes, 8h So good that I beat it in two sessions, surprisingly fantastic game!
Suzerain April 2022 Chapter IV: Checkmate: Completed Chapter IV Yes, 11h Another great game, didn't expect to have such a good time with a text narrative!
Monster Train October 2022 Into the Deep Sea, Diabolical Automation and Guided by Candles: unlock Melting Remnant, Stygian Guard, and Umbra Yes, 18h Fantastic game, will sink hundreds of hours into this.
Midnight Protocol January 2022 Midnight Protocol: Finish act III Yes, 8h Pure waste of time, boring and buggy.
Evan's Remains March 2022 You did it.: Beat the game. Yes, 3h The puzzles were nice. Totally overwritten story though.
HackyZack September 2017 World 6 Pounded:Complete all levels in World 6. Yes, 1h Very annoying game.

Blue Fire and Suzerain are two more on my all time favorites list, such a nice surprise to find these games, thank you for the event as the motivation to get to them! Monster Train a classic as well, first roguelike deckbuilder to actually deserve the successor title to Slay the Spire, can't believe you have cleared A25!!!
