Post-apoc Dreadlands joins the latest $10 Humble Bundle

    
7

Dreadlands is a game we haven’t touched on for a while, but if your amazing memory serves, you might recall that it’s this odd turned-based online co-op strategy game set in a post-apocalyptic world. It launched back in November 2020 with a $25 price tag, but if you’ve been patient waiting for a sale, you can grab it and five other titles for $10 right now.

This is thanks to the Humble RPG Heroes Bundle, which is running for the next two weeks. Dreadlands joins Slasher’s Keep, Quest Hunter, Swords and Souls: Neverseen, Tower of Time, and Deliver to give you a shot of RPG fun.

As for the game itself, Dreadlands has come a long way since its March 2020 debut. The title’s revamped its Scavengers mission, added a challenge system, introduced several new classes such as the Skarback and Mushroomancer, activated multi-faction co-op, and thrown in an endless dungeon, world map events, heavy weapons, dozens of new skills, and an offline mode.

Nothing against this game, but let’s remember that Humble NO LONGER ALLOWS 100% donations to charity. Now they are capping donations to 85% or 70% of the purchase price.

Earlier in the year, they’d actually capped donations to only 15%, and then quickly backtracked at the community rage-response.

Honestly, I’m not terribly keen on humble so much any more. For indie developers I like to try to hunt them down and pay them directly, if I can. The PR doublespeak from Humble isn’t convincing:
“The PC storefront landscape has changed significantly since we first launched bundles in 2010, and we have to continue to evolve with it to stay on mission. The update will allow us to continue to offer great prices on amazing games, books and software all while supporting important charitable initiatives with every single purchase….The change to sliders lets us continue to invest in more exciting content so we can keep growing the Humble community which will ultimately drive more donations for charitable causes.”
So what, you’re saying in 2021 it’s harder and more expensive to sell games online than 2010? I find that…unlikely.
How, precisely, does Humble have to ‘evolve’? What content is Humble investing in? Maybe the rent on pricey SFO offices could be better spent elsewhere?

It wasn’t long after humble was sold to IGN that there was a sudden, very significant drop in quality across the board, but especially in their monthly subscription.

Pardon me while I have a heart attack of not-surprise.

The biggest surprise for me was that it took them this long to touch the money side of the main bundles (April of this year).
I used to buy almost every single bundle, but so far I’ve only bought 3 this year.
I got this bundle (I owned 1/6 games and was interested in all of the others), the covid heal bundle, and due to a temporary lapse in sanity, the train sim bundle.

Probably true, but that’s also probably when I broke down and subscribed to the thing. I’ve been happy with it even though i’ve played like 2 games i’ve gotten from the sub. Most of the blame for that goes to the mmo genre.

Incidentally the choice/monthly they just announced today has an mmo in it too. never heard of it but it has walking bases.

last oasis is like ARK, but set in the desert with mobile bases and grappling hooks.
I don’t think there are any safe zones or pve servers.

Oh, this is set in the Krater universe. Krater was a 2012 game with some potential that never amounted to anything gameplay wise, but the world was great.
