The Humble Stardock Bundle

Sittin' on the stardock of the bay. Drop anchor, because you'll want to stay and play these games for a while. Pick up Offworld Trading Company, Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion, Galactic Civilizations III, and more titles from Stardock Entertainment!

Pay what you want. Normally, the total cost for these games is as much as $237. 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 Offworld Trading Company is also available for Mac. Pay $1 or more to access Steam keys. Please check out the full system requirements here prior to purchasing.

Support charity. Choose where the money goes – between the developers and, if you'd like, a charity of your choice via the PayPal Giving Fund. If you like the bundle or like what we do, you can leave us a Humble Tip too!



Pay $15 (about £11.29) or more to also unlock!

worth the BTA - not sure on top tier though. Can anyone confirm if the Escalation additional content is a separate key to the main Escalation game?

Yeah looks good - I’m glad it’s star docking and not space docking (please don’t google that second one if you’re at work 😶!) probs go for mid tier like usual and never play any of them. HEAT

Yes, they are - it's 4 separate keys for the base game and each piece of DLC. I went for it because the DLC was on sale recently and I almost bought it and now glad I didn't! Also wanted the Galactic Civilizations III expansion but I have pretty much everything else. Offworld Trading Company and Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion are both great.

I used to use their programme to override the Windows 8 metro bar in favour of the start menu. Never knew they made games!

Initially looks like a good bundle...then you check reviews and find it's all kind of "meh..." *shrug*

Very tempted but doubt ill play any of them any time soo ...

Yet another bundle that doesn't do it for me, only purchased 1 Humble Bundle so far in 2017, yikes...

Look above the $1 tier.

I'd be going top-tier if I didn't already have Offworld Trading Company and Ashes of the Singularity, but can't justify that just for the GalCiv expansion,

Ok, Ok...your relentless positivity crushes me....granted there are two pretty decent top tier games there but as a whole bundle, for me at least, this is relatively underwhelming.

At the lowest tier, the Metacritic ratings seem good, but Steam seems to be critical. Tier 2 might be optimal.

Reviews Tier 1:
The Corporate Machine Metacritic: 80% (10 critics, 7.5 from 4 users), Steam: Mixed 63% (36 reviews)
Sorcerer King: Rivals Metacritic: 78% (4 critics, 6.7 from 6 users), Steam: Mixed 66% (115 reviews)
Fallen Enchantress Metacritic: 78% (13 critics, 7.3 from 170 users), Steam: Mixed 65% (235 reviews)
The Political Machine 2016 Metacritic: 72% (5 critics), Steam: Mostly Positive 77% (550 reviews)

Tier 2:
Sins of a Solar Empire®: Rebellion Metacritic: 82% (24 critics, 7.9 from 252 users), Steam: Very Positive 92% (5186 reviews)
Galactic Civilizations® III Metacritic: 81% (31 critics, 6.6 from 205 users), Steam: Mostly Positive 76% (5502 reviews)
Fallen Enchantress Ultimate Edition (Includes all DLC)

Tier 3:
Galactic Civilizations III: Crusade Expansion Pack Metacritic: 86% (9 critics, 6.8 from 17 users), Steam: Very Positive 81% (263 reviews)
Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation (Plus DLC) Metacritic: 81% (5 critics, 7.6 from 23 users), Steam: Mostly Positive 78% (694 reviews)
Offworld Trading Company Metacritic: 78% (28 critics, 7.3 from 58 users), Steam: Mostly Positive 76% (2077 reviews)

Personally, I don't like bundles where you have to buy a lot of additional DLCs to get the complete game (Offworld Trading Company, Galactic Civilizations III, Sins of a Solar Empire), so I pass on this one.

I was trying to find that out last night.
Apparently they've 'merged' the Ashes of the Singularity games.
If you have the original then you already have Escalation.
Although check in case I misunderstood.

Thanks, though it was the
"
  • Guantlet DLC
  • Overlord Scenario Pack
  • Turtle Wars DLC
"

that I was referring to, just I had the main Escalation game from some previous bundle. Reddragon confirmed though that they are all separate keys anyway....but can't justify going for full tier - maybe if it was just $10 but not 15 as have Escalation and Offword already
