In addition to hosting popular Humble Bundle deals (and giving millions to charities), Humble also publishes indie games under the Humble Games publishing label. During this year’s Humble Games Showcase 2023, Humble Games revealed six upcoming indie games — and a surprise launch.
“We’re incredibly excited for players to get their hands on our newly announced lineup as we continue to focus on supporting our development partners to bring their creative visions to life—and help them make their games the best they can be,” said Mark Nash, Vice President of Global Publishing, Humble. “2022 was another very successful year for us, adding several more critically acclaimed and award-winning titles like Signalis, Ghost Song and Prodeus to our growing portfolio. Our future lineup is proof of our continued investment in supporting our development partners to push the boundaries with their games.”
Wizard of Legend 2
Following last year’s announcement of Monaco 2, Wizard of Legend 2 marks Humble’s second wholly owned franchise. Wizard of Legend 2 keeps the same fast-paced, isometric action-RPG roguelite gameplay and upgrades to fully 3D visuals. The sequel will also support up to four player online co-op.
Lost Skies is a survival adventure set in a realm of floating islands. Up to six players can journey among the clouds to scavenge ancient technology, build airships, and survive the perils of the skies.
Breeze in the Clouds
An anthropomorphic corgi named Breeze is dropped into the polluted world of Tropolis. Using incredible fighting skills and weather-controlling powers, Breeze must battle his way to save his friend in this 2D side-scrolling beat-em-up.
Humble has partnered with animation studio Exit 73 to produce their first game, #BLUD. #BLUD stars young teen Becky Brewster in a highly animated action-RPG brawler that looks like an exaggerated 90s cartoon come to life.
Bō: Path of the Teal Lotus
Another beautifully drawn, debut game from a new studio, Bō: Path of the Teal Lotus is an 2D action-platformer inspired by Japanese folklore. The titular Bō is a Celestial Blossom, capable of shapeshifting into powerful forms, and brewing arcane teas to unlock new abilities.
Finally, something that’s not a 2D or isometric brawler! Cataclismo is a fortress-building strategy-defense game. Build walls, bridges, and towers to construct strongholds, then defend against waves of monsters called the Horrors. Also includes a Creative mode in case you’re more into building that defending.
In addition to the six new games above, Humble Games provided some updates and expanded looks at two previously announced games, Stray Gods and Supraland.
Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical
Stray Gods is a unique “interactive roleplaying musical,” and you really need to check out the ultra cool new trailer. The voice cast alone should turn heads, including Laura Bailey, Troy Baker, Ashley Johnson, and Khary Payton, with music composed by award-winning composer Austin Wintory. The gameplay is a narrative-driven adventure starring the gods in a murder mystery, and featuring lots of original music!
Release: August 3
Supraland: Six Inches Under
Shrink down to tiny size in Supraland: Six Inches Under, the next game in the mini metroidvania series. Explore a miniaturized, puzzle-filled world in first-person as you work to escape Cagetown.
Release: Surprise! Supraland is available now on PlayStation and Xbox (Switch coming later this summer).
