Humble Mozilla Bundle Highlights the Power of OS- and DRM-Free Browser Gaming

Humble Mozilla Bundle

Well there’s something ya don’t see every day: a bundle dedicated to gaming in modern browsers (like Chrome or Firefox), powered by… JavaScript. Madness? Why yes, but the best kind, I’d say. Plus, while the lineup does consist of previously bundled titles, at least the lot is of the impressive sort.

Each game (with the exception of Voxatron) does contain a complimentary Steam key though, so you don’t need to fire up your favorite browser, in order to play the contents of this particular bundle. Could always sample the goods too, by clicking the ‘play’ button underneath each game. Now, as far as pricing goes, the eight games – with a ninth being added later – are divided into three tiers: Pay-What-You-Want, Beat-The-Average and $8+. That about sums it up, ya know?

PWYW

Super Hexagon

Super Hexagon (Windows, Mac, Linux – DRM-free, Steam, browser, Android)
Super Hexagon is a minimal action game by Terry Cavanagh (creator of VVVVVV) — guide your triangle around a rotating hexagon and avoid the incoming lines. In this deceptively simple game, you’ll have to deal with a spinning screen and rapidly changing colors synced to brain-pumping music.

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome (Windows, Mac, Linux – DRM-free, Steam, browser)
Aaaaa! took place in an alternate 2011, where BASE jumpers leapt from the skies and executed stunts around the floating buildings of Upper Boston. This semi-sequel picks up six years later — the sport’s been outlawed, and you’re jumping as a form of protest. High in Earth’s stratosphere, you’ll thread a path through the rotating blades of enormous wind turbines. Elsewhere in the solar system, you’ll dodge asteroids above seas of lava, spray graffiti onto lunar government offices, and flip off Ganymede colonists — all in the name of peaceful protest.

Osmos

Osmos (Windows, Mac, Linux – DRM-free, Steam, browser)
Enter the ambient world of Osmos: elegant, physics-based gameplay, dreamlike visuals, and a minimalist, electronic soundtrack. Your objective is to grow by absorbing other motes. Propel yourself by ejecting matter behind you. But be wise: ejecting matter also shrinks you. Relax – good things come to those who wait.

Zen Bound 2

Zen Bound 2 (Windows, Mac, Linux – DRM-free, Steam, browser)
Wrap your way to bliss in Zen Bound 2, the unique down-tempo indie game! This is a different gaming experience: an opportunity to slow down, zone out and focus on a task that’s challenging but not stressful, a set of gentle puzzles for the mind and fingers to solve.

Dustforce

Dustforce DX (Windows, Mac, Linux – DRM-free, Steam, browser)
Clean up the world with style! As an acrobatic janitor, you are an adept force against dust and disorder. Leap and dash off walls and ceilings, and deftly traverse precarious environments. Cleanse each level swiftly and thoroughly to achieve mastery in this 2D sweep-’em-up platformer.

BTA

Voxatron Bullet Hell Elephant

Voxatron (Windows, Mac, Linux – DRM-free, browser)
Voxatron is a brand new, voxel-based, old-school-gone-new platform shooter. Pick up your trusty pea gun and shoot your way, Robotron-style, through more than twenty challenging areas filled with blocky baddies, destructible toys, and palliative powerups.

FTL: Advanced Edition

FTL: Advanced Edition (Windows, Mac, Linux – DRM-free, Steam, browser)
Captain a spaceship delivering critical intelligence to the Federation while being chased down by rebels in the top-down space strategy game FTL: Faster Than Light. Manage your crew through one-on-one ship combat and life or death situations, while making sure they don’t die from lack of oxygen, fires, or shots from one of an arsenal of weapons. Random scenarios make each trip through the galaxy one full of surprises and challenges.

Another game coming soon!

$8+
