    MS getting together with Humble is a great step. Should've happened a long time ago.

    That's great humble games publish such a variety of stuff and I've played quite a few so far.

    That's great news, they publish some great games. I'd say they're right up there with Devolver in terms of quality.

    Hopefully part of this deal allows for an Xbox humble bundle in the future. I doubt it though. Humble bundle's formula is the only one that rivals Game Pass.

    Excellent news. China Town Detective sounds interesting.
    Looking for a place to happen, making stops along the way.

    Wow. I hope they also have HB bundle deals for Xbox games. HB usually have fantastic bundles for games on PC that provide you great value. They even had one or two for Playstation in the past.

    Nice thing about Humble releasing their games getting on Xbox instead of playing them on PC is that they will have achievements to aim for on Xbox.

    Kinda off topic but I remember HB putting some crazy deals on Steam a few years ago, like 20 Artifex Mundi games for like $3. Meanwhile they're $15 a piece on Xbox with only a few sales on a handful on single games. I only bought a few of them on Xbox but definitely stopped when I heard about that. Lots of shovelware on PC is $0,50 or $1 yet they're easily $8 or $10 on Xbox. Even on 75% sales you're getting ripped off, the easy 1000Gs really ain't worth it.

    Maybe humble can begin selling Ms bundles eventually of games that have come to console so we can support the developers and them as publishers directly.

    My OCD is killing me with the formatting on how Dodgeball Academia is shown with a bullet point immediately after the title unlike the other games listed. XD
    There is always a way.

    Indiegala used to sell Artifex Mundi bundles for game redeemable on steam every year. In fact I still have plenty of leftovers from previous bundles that had duplicates on my tradelist.
