The Humble Sierra Bundle is a nostalgia bomb-o-rama


Oh man, it feels like only yesterday. And it was, because Steam has just added a whole heap of classic Sierra adventure games to its catalogue, but also because just looking at screenshots of these games can instantly transform me into a 10-year old all over again. I learned to type playing the first King’s Quest. I learned the word “glean” from Space Quest 3. I learned everything I know about vampire rabbits in Quest for Glory 4.

Aaaaand I’ve just bought those three games and all the others on the Humble Sierra Bundle, even though I own original disc copies of most of them, because I’m a 10-year old and I have no impulse control.

The Humble Sierra Bundle includes:

For $1 or more

  • Space Quest Collection
  • Phantasmagoria 1 and 2
  • Police Quest Collection
  • Shiftlings

For more than the average (about $12.50 or so, at publish time)

  • Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
  • TimeShift
  • Quest for Glory Collection
  • Gabriel Knight 1-3

For $15 or more

  • Caesar 3 and 4
  • Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved
  • King’s Quest Classic Collection
  • Velocity 2X

For $20 or more

  • King’s Quest: The Complete Collection

But seriously, it’s worth it just for the Quest for Glory and Space Quest anthologies, and $20 for the King’s Quest reboot isn’t a bad deal either. Go get ’em.
