    Okay, humble bundles happen so regularly I don't even always check them. But the current line-up is certainly worth checking out:

    -Guacamelee! Gold edition
    -Dust: an Elysian tail
    -Giana Sisters: twisted dreams
    -The swapper

    ...and for above the average ($4.55 $4.70 at time of writing) you also get:
    -Antichamber
    -Monaco: what's yours is mine
    -FEZ
    -Starseed Pilgrim
    -Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians

    (EDIT: games in bald added later on)

    I must admit I feel jealous. I already have everything but Guacamelee, but I'll most likely buy it again if my girlfriend is even remotely interested in the rest. The reason...

    Dust: an elysian tail is a fun beat'em up platformer with some RPG-elements in it. It's a bit short, but all round fun.
    Giana sisters: I just finished that one. The shifting mechanic is very interesting. The game itself is in the vein of Sonic (yeah, the spin attack kinda reminds of that). Could also have been longer, but it has very large levels and a pretty serious difficulty curve (difficult but fun)
    The swapper is an original puzzle platformer where you can create up to five clones of yourself that move the way you do. Very atmospheric and beautiful. I'm not too far in it, but it was worth my 10 bucks back when I bought it by itself
    Antichamber...I called this my game of 2013 (over bioshock infinite, no less!) for a reason. This is thinking outside the box in the most real sense possible (fans of portal really should have at least tried this). That, and things also get fun once you've got a...gun.
    Monaco is one of the games I've picked up but haven't found time to play, yet. But since it has multiplayer in an isometric perspective...I can't think of why this game wouldn't be fun. :)

    I had none of the 1$ games, but I have Antichamber and have no interest in Monaco, so I grabbed the bundle for a buck.
    Dust is amazing, 4 hours in and one of the best Metroidvanias on the PC.

    I could have sworn some of those were previously drm free.
    Oh well, it is not like I lack things to play.

    What do you mean, I've purchased the bundle and all the games can be downloaded DRM-free.
    Or did I misunderstand what you said?

    I managed to grab the bundle when the average was below $4. Feels so, so good.

    What? Can't a guy Humble brag?

    ...Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing what other games they add to the bundle. If the current selection is anything to go by, it's gonna be great.

    Yeah, I beat the average as soon as I saw it pop up Tuesday. I'd been holding off on Guacamelee and Monaco even though I wanted them, and I've been passively interested in Dust and Giana Sisters for a while too. Swapper didn't really look all that appealing to me and will probably sit in my "library fluff" backlog with a few dozen other games; I'd never heard of Antichamber, but it looks interesting enough to give a shot at some point, anyways.

    Wouldn't be too surprised if one of the week two games is Rogue Legacy or Papers, Please.

    Really? Usually they have little DRMfree icons [​IMG] on them. I probably should read more though as it does seem to have a DRM free option.

    Yeah there's no icon this time but if you look at the description it states cross-plaform and drm-free for all games. You get steam keys if you give more than 1 buck.

    I haven't picked up bundles in a while (nothing I wanted) until this one. I'm glad to see the Steam integration does NOT stop you from taking individual keys as gifts! ('Cause I already had Antichamber.)

    I'm not sure how poor your laptop is but my Intel HD 3000 runs Antichamber quite playably.
    Antichamber is awesome, play it :P

    I'm pretty sure it will work fine. And also: not only is this a rather minimalistic game (just picture google pretty much any picture of the game), it is also not the kind of game where FPS matter much. :)

    ...just noticed that Fez, Starseed pilgrim and Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians were added to the bundle (all 3 in the 'beat the average', which is currently at $4.70).
