Humble Trove

Trove you say, what’s Humble Trove? That’s the same question I had. Humble Trove is a new (beta) extension of the Humble Monthly bundle, giving monthly owners access to an additional library of games (like we needed more). Included therein are the Humble Originals; Games that have been commissioned by Humble, exclusively for Humble. While the quality of past Original’s have been dubious, the latest additions have proven interesting, and the only way to get them is through Humble.

With the introduction of Trove, Humble has decided to give six of their original games away for free until February 2 2018. Four of which look especially interesting:


Hitchhiker is a mystery game set along lost highways. You’re a hitchhiker on a strange journey, unable to remember who you are or where you’re headed. Something in your recent past has stolen your memory— but what? The highway offers clues: a matchbook hidden in your armrest, a photo in the glovebox, billboards and crows along the roadside. To complete your journey, you’ll need to choose your friends wisely— never knowing if your worst enemy is your own subconscious mind.

2000:1 A Space Felony

2000:1: A Space Felony is a murder mystery courtroom drama set aboard the USS Endowment, an interplanetary Spacecraft that lost communication with Earth.

Utilizing your camera and demonstrating your keen detective skills, you must document your findings, and piece together the crew’s final hours from the aftermath. This photographic evidence is then applied in a cross-examination of the crime’s prime suspect; MAL, the ship’s on-board AI system. If MAL is found to be guilty, it is your responsibility to deactivate him.

Crescent Bay

Crescent Bay is a first person psychological thriller. After visiting a friend’s home, you find that her house is now the scene of a mysterious and bloody crime. A bloody crime with no body or victim to be found. Playing as John Bishop, you possess an otherworldly gift. By channeling sequences of words, you can make ethereal connections with the ghosts of the past. It is up to you to learn of what happened to your dear friend Audrey. Find the memories, sequence the events, solve the crime.


THOR.N is a first person job simulator. It is your birthday. You wake up in your room and your guardian greets you with warmth and compassion. Today is the day that you get to leave this space that you have been isolated to your entire life. Today is the day that you can begin your journey to achieving citizenship. Today is the day that you contribute back to society.

These games come DRM-Free, which means they don’t come attached with Steam, just download and enjoy.
