Anyone attempting to tighten the post-holiday season purse strings in an effort to save some moolah may want to look away now: the Humble Store Winter Sale has kicked off. As you might expect, it includes loads of good deals and will test your “I must cut back this month” resolve.
If you’re mega skint and really can’t handle another sale, you might wanna browse our best free games on PC.
Yes, launching a sale shortly after – and not alongside – the recently concluded Steam Winter Sale is smart tactics. Well played Humble Store, well played. Running from now until January 29, loads of great games have had their price tags shaved which might help ease the blues at this time of year. Just don’t go overboard, I guess is an appropriate disclaimer. And if you do, at least console yourself with the knowledge that, as ever, 10 percent of all proceeds get distributed to various charities.
Here’s the highlights as supplied by Humble themselves:
- Activision sale
- Bethesda sale
- Capcom sale
- Sega sale
- The Witcher sale

One feature of the sale that caught my eye in particular is its build-your-own bundles. For the next three days, this deal rounds up a selection of German outfit Daedalic’s games which includes Blackguards and Blackguards 2, and the underrated point-and-click adventure 1954 Alcatraz, among many others.
The more you buy, the better the discount, thus adding three games ups the standard discounts to 85 percent; four takes it to 87 percent; and five brings it to 90 percent. Keep an eye on different collections of games throughout the sale. Check out all the Humble Store Winter Sale has to offer for yourself.
