Humble Monthly Reveals January's Bundle; Introduces "Early Unlock"

January 4, 2016

We all remember Humble’s monthly subscription service? The PC game curation service is trying to be PC’s Games with Gold/PlayStation Plus, giving monthly games at a $12 premium. For those who are already backing, the following titles are now available to you (followed by their current Steam asking price):

  • The Talos Principle ($39.99)
  • Grim Fandango Remastered ($14.99)
  • The Masterplan ($19.99)
  • Mushroom 11 ($14.99)
  • Spelunky ($14.99)
  • A Fistful of Guns ($12.99)

While these games frequently go on sale, the total comes up to $118 — a $106 value for those looking to grab the games via Steam today. And while none of these games are particularly new, Humble Monthly remains an extremely viable subscription service for those looking to get into PC gaming or those constantly watching the Steam sales (where gamers can get pennies on the dollar).


Additionally, Humble announced they are continuing a practice they are dubbing as “Early Unlock.” If you are subscribed to Humble Monthly or you subscribe to receive next month’s game, you get one of next month’s games early. In this case, subscribers can nab Alien: Isolation, one of the headliners of February’s bundle. For those looking to subscribe, you can do so here — check out the trailer for this month below:
