The Humble Hope for Orphans Bundle

Hope is on the way. We've teamed up with Tripwire and friends to humbly support Change30, a charity providing critical resources to orphans in need.You'll get awesome games like Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, Killing Floor 2, Call to Arms Full Edition + Deluxe Edition Upgrade, BLACKHOLE, and more! Then, proceeds from this bundle will help provide care, life skills coaching, and housing and education resources to young people who have been left without support systems.

Pay what you want. Normally, the total cost for these games is as much as $247. Here at Humble Bundle, though, you choose the price!

Redeem on Steam. All of the games in this bundle are available on Steam for Windows, and some for Mac and Linux too. Please check out the full system requirements here prior to purchasing.

Support charity. Choose where the money goes – between the publishers/developers and Change30. If you like the bundle or like what we do, you can leave us a Humble Tip too!

Don't beg, let people dontate


Plenty of people aren't aware - and my post was clearly somewhat tongue in cheek. This isn't "begging".

Yes, I criticised one of your deals (which the temperature suggests that other people feel the same way about), but there's no need for you to start a crusade against my giveaways - which are, after all, run for the benefit of members here. Of course, feel free to add me to your ignore list if you don't wish to see my posts.

When you buy from the Humble store you can nominate a charity and 5% of everything you spend goes to them, so you can pick an animal charity there. I just chose the nearest dog shelter that was on the list. I know that doesn't have anything to do with the bundles, because they are for specific charities, but just in case you didn't know.

Presumably because it's two separate keys - so there's the option of just activating the base game and not the deluxe content, if you so wish, but more importantly, for people who already own the base game, the option to just add the deluxe content.

I just dont think there is any need to keep asking people for games on threads. People in misc want sky sports passes but they don't ask in every thread posted in deals. It just becomes a bit too much.



I, for one, support Illusionary's right to post a reminder about the giveaways in every bundle thread.

It's not begging when it's not for yourself - people in Misc wanting Sky Sports passes presumably want them for themselves and aren't running giveaways, just like some people do post on bundle threads saying things like 'I just want X game but not the whole bundle so if anyone buys it and doesn't want X, I'll take a spare copy,' and that's more like begging, which I haven't really got a problem with personally as long as they're polite, but what Illusionary does is a whole different thing.

And as for the constant reminders - to paraphrase Stan Lee, every comic book bundle thread might be someone's first comic book bundle thread, so treat them accordingly and don't presume they know anything. I've been here for years, have previously donated games, and sometimes even I could do with reminding about the giveaways, because usually I'll just sell or trade spare keys or use SteamGifts to give them away, but Illusionary does a great thing by giving HUKD its own giveaways and works hard to run them.

So, with that said, I'm going to go through my list of unused keys and see what I can spare...

I think they're actually different things. Call to Arms' base game has a free to play listing on Steam, I think the full version includes single player content not in that version and the season pass is DLC content like any other season pass. I could be mistaken though, hadn't heard of the game before today.

Personally I was more interested in Rising Storm: Vietnam from that top tier. Taking the wallet credit into account it worked out as less than £1.50 extra compared to bta so easily worth it.
Rising Storm titles and il2 1946 are utterly brilliant games. Call to arms looks interesting too.
Any HUKD gamer with his eyes open must already have Rising Storm and Killing Floor from Tier 1, as they were given away free not so long ago.

However, I recommend "Blackhole" for anyone into puzzle platformers. A brain-stretching test of spatial awareness, but also with good production values and effort put into the story.

I often see people generously give away a spare key by posting it in a comment, only for some lurker (possibly even a non-member) to come along and nick it without so much as a thank you.
I think it's a lot better for it to go to relatively active members, which Illusionary's comps guarantee.

Are you for real? Not everyone visits this site every day. So there is a likelihood that people will not know. The guy gives the codes away in giveaways so there is no personal gain. What exactly is your problem with a comment to remind people about that? You seem to have some real issues regarding this.
Homefront ghe revution is one of my fave games. Really draws you in.kind of like half life 2 with the story meets gta with open world playing styles.

I bought it after patches came out. Completed it which is rare for me and would love the dlc.

Yes me too. But looks like you can choose a dog shelter which is cool, will try it see if its on there.

What's the connection between orphans and shootings that makes this distasteful to you? Even if you weren't making a weird logical leap would it really be preferable to you that this bundle didn't support charity?

However, the key actually redeems as this: http://store.steampowered.com/app/234510/Rising_Storm_Game_of_the_Year_Edition/Like it's supposed to


Interesting. The bundle page says 'Rising Storm Game of the Year Edition' and if you click on it for details it says 'Includes all Red Orchestra 2 multiplayer content', but you're right, it does say 'Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad with Rising Storm' on the page with the keys.
Checking on SteamDB, I think it might be this package - steamdb.info/sub…ps/


Have you also got Killing Floor? Could you check and see whether you have the Rising Storm DLC for it?

There's only a connection if you want to see one (i.e. if you're assuming these children are orphans because their parents were shot). Perhaps take 5 minutes to look up Change30, the charity being supported here, and the actual underlying causes of high orphan numbers in Russia where they operate.

Even putting that aside video game violence =/= real world violence (unless you work for Fox of course) and even putting that aside the only logical solution to your issue is to not have the bundle supporting this charity which really doesn't seem like an improvement to me.

I never said that video game violence = real life violence, so you're arguing a point I never made. And the logical solution would be a bundle that supported orphans and wasn't *all about* killing people.

If you understand the difference between violence in games and in real life why does the content of these games matter? Did you even bother taking 5 minutes out to look up Change30? Also that isn't much of a logical solution when you consider the effort that goes into putting these bundles together or just how many modern games involve killing.

In spite of your flippant remark it makes no odds to me if you think the deal's good, what I disagree with is this outrage culture where people make illogical complaints just for the sake of it; particularly when it's about charity fundraising.

May I ask what you personally have done to raise money for this organisation that makes you feel so qualified to brand this particular effort "distasteful"? Clearly the charity itself has no issue however perhaps you know better than them?

Actually, it's a very logical solution. There are plenty of games out there that don't involve killing, or at least don't have killing as the primary gameplay mechanic. Many of which have been included in previous Humble Bundles.

Obviously, I haven't previously raised money for this Russian orphan charity that nobody's ever heard of before. Why even bring that up, except to try and score cheap points? And the charity (a) probably had no idea what the contents would be, and (b) will be happy for any money they can get.

As for the deal, I haven't voted either way. I might've even bought the bundle if I didn't already have so many unplayed games. And I'm not "outraged" at all - merely pointing out that it's a bit ridiculous to have a "Hope for Orphans" bundle comprised almost entirely of killing and shooting games. Y'know, because war is a major cause of orphanhood? It'd be like selling a tsunami simulator (in which you play the tsunami) to raise money for tsunami victims. Or a drug-smuggling sim to raise money for rehabilitating drug addicts. What about this are you not getting?

It's not called the "Hope for Russian Orphans Abandoned by their Parents" bundle though, is it?

Just "Hope for Orphans", composed primarily of killing and shooting games. I'll let the zombie-killing games slide, but the human-killing games are insensitive, and I have zero interest in arguing this very simple point anymore

'Again, 'over 90% of Russian orphans still have at least one living parent but have been orphaned because of alcohol abuse, financial distress, or other social factors.'
Do you know if many Russian orphans had parents who were killed?
