HUMBLE GAMES SHOWCASE REVEALS DEAD MAGE’S WIZARD OF LEGEND 2 AND BOSSA STUDIOS’ LOST SKIES IN DEBUT
May 19, 2023 - San Francisco - Today, Humble Games, the publishing team of the beloved Humble Bundle brand, debuted the Humble Games Showcase to a public audience, sharing insight into their slate for 2023 and beyond. During the showcase, the team doubled down on the company’s dedication to high-quality indie games that deliver approachable yet deeply original experiences for players worldwide. Fans from around the world were treated to the reveals of six new titles, led by Wizard of Legend 2 from Dead Mage, which is now a Humble Games owned IP, and Lost Skies from Bossa Studios, one of the biggest and most ambitious indie titles from the publisher to date. In addition to this the team revealed new game updates from previously announced titles and a surprise game launch. "We're incredibly excited for players to get their hands on our newly announced lineup as we continue to focus on supporting our development partners to bring their creative visions to life—and help them make their games the best they can be,” said Mark Nash, Humble’s Vice President of Global Publishing. "2022 was another very successful year for us, adding several more critically acclaimed and award-winning titles like SIGNALIS, Ghost Song and Prodeus to our growing portfolio. Our future lineup is proof of our continued investment in supporting our development partners to push the boundaries with their games.” Expanding their publishing efforts, Humble Games revealed Wizard of Legend 2, the follow-up to one of its most popular games to date, and announced that it will be the second wholly owned franchise for the company following last year’s announcement of Monaco II. Continuing the excitement, Humble Games also revealed the co-op open world survival adventure Lost Skies with an exclusive early look at the game presented by the groundbreaking team at Bossa Studios. In addition, Humble Games revealed several more new games, including Breeze in the Clouds, a 2D hand-drawn side-scrolling action game focused on environmentalism—and the second Humble-published game to come from Humble’s Black Game Developer Fund—#BLUD, a delightfully zany dungeon crawler; Bō: Path of the Teal Lotus, a hand-drawn 2D action platformer based in a world of Japanese folklore; and Cataclismo, a fortress-building real-time strategy game set in a dark medieval fantasy realm. Updates for the highly anticipated Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical were also announced along with a surprise launch of the first-person metroidvania Supraland: Six Inches Under on PlayStation, Xbox and Game Pass. The event also included an update on Humble’s charitable giving from VP of Social Impact Kamini Tiwari. In 2022, Humble raised a company record $33 million for people and causes in need, benefiting more than ten thousand charities. These efforts included Humble’s Stand with Ukraine all-for-charity bundle, which raised more than $20 million and just won a prestigious Gold Halo Award from Engage for Good. In addition, Humble Games revealed that Protodroid DeLTA, which launches May 25, 2023, will have a Day One DLC Armor Pack, with 100% of proceeds being donated to the Girls Make Games Scholarship Fund.
