The Humble Bundle just announced that their store is going to celebrate Japanese games for a whole week with their new Golden Week sale starting today! So, what does that mean? It means that you can buy Japanese developed games for up to 85% off their regular price AND do something charitable at the same time!
What is the Humble Bundle?
The Humble Bundle is essentially a web company that supports charities while offering their customers great prices. They started out as a website that sold a single two-week indie game bundle and split their earnings not only with the game's developers but also a charitable cause. Unknowingly to them, they struck gold and were able to expand on that idea while getting more and more game developers and publishers onboard to support charitable causes like the Make a Wish Foundation and the American Red Cross while providing great offers to their customers.
Humble Bundle sells games, ebooks, software, and other digital content. Our mission is to support charity while providing awesome content to customers at great prices. We launched in 2010 with a single two-week Humble Indie Bundle, but we have humbly grown into a store full of games and bundles, a subscription service, a game publisher, and more.
As the Golden Week Sale is essentially an Anime related game sale, I am really interested to check out these noteworthy games for myself or can recommend them:
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy
The Phoenix Wright Series is an adventure game series that was developed by Capcom and follows the fictional attorney Phoenix Wright as he struggles to prove the innocence of his clients.
I always adored the game series and was in awe when it first released in the early 2000s as I really love the theme and tropes of courts, justice and crime solving. This was partially the reason why I started studying law in university for about 2 years before dropping out to pursue programming as a career. However, while I always loved reading about it, I never got a copy of any of the games while growing up! Something I am going to change during this sale.
IF MY HEART HAD WINGS
If My Heart Had Wings is an animated visual novel presenting a lovely and bittersweet tale of youth. Take on the role of Aoi Minase in this romantic-comedy as he meets various young girls in his hometown and works together with them to revive their school’s glider-flying “Soaring Club” in order to realize their shared dream of flight.
This visual novel is something special. I played it in 2013 when it first released and was immediately drawn to it. It is a mix-up of a beautifully written story, amazing artwork and… explicit content, although it is not marketed as such. It has six girls you can sort of date throughout the story arc of the game and it took me hours to get through my first playthrough.
I immediately fell for Amane Mochizuki and Yoru Kazato and just seeing it on sale makes me want to replay this awesome visual novel. I recommend this piece of art so much! If you plan on playing this game, GET THE UNCENSORED FILES. It is worth playing without them, but sooo much better with the whole package as you can play the game AS INTENDED… if you catch my drift.
