The latest Pay-What-You-Want bundle of games offered by Humble Bundle is one of the best I’ve ever seen. A vast collection of classic Sierra adventure games and RPGs from the 90s have been released from their digital vaults and onto Steam. That’s $215 worth of games, and you can snag them all for $20 in the Humble Sierra Bundle.

Most of these classic titles were available on GoG for years. Now that they’ve arrived on Steam, Humble Bundle can launch their typical tiered pricing structure.

Dropping at least $1 nets you:

  • Space Quest Collection (Space Quest 1-6)
  • Phantasmagoria 1-2
  • Police Quest Collection (Police Quest 1-4)
  • Shiftlings

Get more games by paying more than the average donation (currently $12.55):

  • Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
  • TimeShift
  • Quest for Glory Collection (Quest for Glory 1-5)
  • Gabriel Knight 1-3

Pay at least $15 to unlock:

  • Caesar 3-4
  • Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved
  • King’s Quest Collection (King’s Quest 1-7)
  • Velocity 2X

Finally spend at least $20 to get:

  • King’s Quest: The Complete Collection (all chapters)

 

Humble Sierra BundleMany of these classic titles are among gaming’s best adventure games. In the case of King’s Quest VI: Heir Today, Gone Tomorrow, it’s simply one of the greatest games of all time. For my money, Arcanum, Quest for Glory, and King’s Quest titles are all well worth the investment.

The biggest news: all games have been updated and confirmed to run on Windows 10.

Like all of Humble’s bundles, you can also donate some of the money to charity. In this case the Call of Duty Endowment, which is aimed at helping veterans find employment.

Sierra reigned supreme on the PC throughout the 80s and 90s. They struggled at the turn of the century before being purchased by Activision Blizzard in 2008 and going dark. In 2014, Activision Blizzard reactivated Sierra to re-release older titles and collaborate with indie studios. Thus, a new episodic King’s Quest title was born.

So far three episodes have been released (read our review of Chapter 1 and Chapter 2). King’s Quest: The Complete Collection is normally $29.99 on Steam. Purchasing it here for $20 along with some of the best games ever doesn’t take an adventure game aficionado to solve.
