We are all here right now because we like games. After you get over the “duh” factor of that statement, you can likely agree that we also like to help out where we can. If you could combine games and helping people and/or the planet, surely that would be a worthy cause, right?
If you haven’t come across it already, there’s a pretty snazzy Humble Bundle out at the moment which has some pretty exciting games and short movies attached to it. Seeing as Botanicula is having its world wide debut here, it will get the spotlight. You can follow some seedy characters around their natural habitat as they try and protect their environment. This is much in the same way that the World Land Trust is trying to protect the Rainforest. Seeing as a portion of what you spend on the bundle will also be going to save the trees as well, this seems to be a worthy cause indeed.
Other treats that you will get for buying this bundle is Machinarium, which follows a little robot as he tries to save his town from mechanical mischief. In Samorost 2, you will be following your beloved dog to an alien planet where he is being held captive. Should you pay more than the average price, which is currently under $9, you will also receive a short film called Kooky, and a rather interesting looking game called Windowsill. These games will be available on Windows, Mac, and Linux. If you do decide to partake of this humble bundle, you might want to do it quick, as there are only eight days left to do it! (Keep in mind that these games would cost you about $53 bucks if you bought them separately)
