Humble's Metroidvania Bundle Is Awesome - Get 7 Games For $15

This Humble Bundle has one of the best metroidvania lineups we've ever seen.


Metroid and Castlevania might be the metroidvania crown jewels (understandably), but indie developers have kept the subgenre alive over the years, and thanks to Humble’s new Must-Play Metroidvanias bundle, you can grab a collection of seven indie metroidvanias for PC, plus coupon codes for two more for just $15.

True to the bundle’s name, every game included is a standout, such as Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which is the latest title from Koji Igarashi, the developer best known for his work on the Castlevania series. Unsurprisingly, Bloodstained looks and plays like a modern successor to exploration-focused Castlevania titles like Symphony of the Night and Aria of Sorrow. It's the perfect game if you miss that era of Castlevania.

Hollow Knight is also included in the bundle, which is widely considered one of the best metroidvania games ever made thanks to its slick combat, memorable soundtrack, and hand-drawn world filled with adorable, melancholic bugs. Play this to see why fans are eager for the sequel, Silksong.

The bundle also includes Blasphemous, which offers a moodier spin on the genre through its difficult combat and haunting dark fantasy visuals, and Rain World, which sees players control a tiny creature called a “slugcat,” sneaking and surviving in a giant post-apocalyptic world. A 20%-off coupon for the sequel, Rain World: Downpour, is also included.

Lost Ruins, Lone Fungus, and Haiku, the Robot round out the list of games, and Humble tops the whole thing off with a 50%-off coupon for Zapling Bygone.

Altogether, you're getting a $164 value for as little as $15. However, you can up your donation to the suggested $25 or more if you want to give more money to the Girls Who Code charity, which this bundle supports. Humble also lets you adjust the revenue split between the publishers, charity, and Humble. All codes unlock via Steam.

Humble’s Must-Play Metroidvanias bundle is available until June 21.
