Humble are currently running two new bundles of interest to game developers. The first is the Humble 8-Bit Pixel Game Dev Bundle and the second is Humble Book Bundle: Classic Video Games by Boss Fight Books. They are also still currently running the Humble Microsoft.NET bundle if you are a C# developer in need of books… Humble sure do a lot of developer targeted bundles these days.
The first bundle, the 8-Bit Pixel bundle is a collection of game development ready graphics from the Game Dev Marketplace, containing 8/16bit style graphics and sounds. You can read the Humble License here and the Game Dev Marketplace license here. I will detail the contents of this bundle by tier below.
The second bundle is described as:
Boss Fight Books publishes nonfiction documentary-style books about classic video games like EarthBound, Metal Gear Solid, and Shadow of the Colossus! Collected here for the first time in one bundle, each ebook takes a critical, historical, and personal look at a single game.
All of the books are available in PDF, MOBI and EPUB formats.
