Conquer COVID-19 and Quarantine Boredom With Humble’s Latest Bundle

VVVVVV alone is worth $30

The helpful hands at Humble have assembled a truly massive charity bundle featuring 44 games, 23 ebooks, one documentary and (inexplicably) a single piece of music creation software. For a low, one-time payment of $30 — 100 percent of which goes to COVID-19 relief — you too can own such indelible classics as Hollow Knight, Into the Breach, Undertale, and Super Hexagon.

I don’t have to tell you about the immeasurable impact that the novel coronavirus has already had on the world, or how even more immeasurable said impact is going to become over the next month. I also don’t need to point out that the United States federal government has royally boned this whole thing, and that hundreds of thousands of people could die for reasons that might have been totally prevented, had action been taken sooner. The American public is largely out here on our own, despite forthcoming stimulus checks (thanks Bernie!), and as with our everyday healthcare, the response to COVID-19 is going to require a substantial, crowdfunded investment from capable citizens.

While the Humble Conquer COVID-19 Bundle is only on sale for a week, the games you get for your 30 clams should last you well into the next couple months of self-isolation. Here’s the full breakdown of everything you’ll receive:

The money raised through this bundle helps fund Direct Relief, the International Rescue Committee, Doctors Without Borders, and Partners in Health; four non-profit organizations working to assist the victims of the global COVID-19 pandemic, which rapidly approaches 900,000 confirmed cases. The United States is now the global epicenter of the pandemic, with over 189,000 confirmed cases and 3,899 deaths, as of press time. According to the White House, the death toll in the United States could reach 100,000 people or more by the time this is all over, which is more than twice the number of deaths that the entire world has experienced up to this point.

Hospitals across the nation continue to face shortages of vital equipment and protective gear — a situation that could have been avoided if the Trump administration had taken action when it was first briefed on the dangers of the virus last January. Since that didn’t happen, it is now up to those of us with an extra $30 on hand to help keep people alive. But hey, at least you get to play VVVVVV, one of the best games ever made, as well as Agents of Mayhem, which is also a video game.
