I... think these do count towards the sales totals? Please somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

They will, but since it's Humble he chose to give no money to Sega.

You cab choose where all the money goes wether it be Humble, whatever companies the games come from, or charity. But Humble obviously paid Sega for the keys they are giving out anyway.

I personally would never give money to Humble for instance.

I'm waiting for Mania to hit the $10 marker before trying it, but this may actually be as low as it ever gets...

I may have to eat these words...

Woah yeah - everything Sonic is deeply discounted in the Steam Winter sale. Probably to mirror the fact that everything's up on Humble also for super cheap.

Awesome time to get a hold of these games via whichever route.

Bundle's doing well at 65K sales with just under 6 days left. Compare that to the 25th anniversary bundle which stands at 91K.

It's a shame Forces was so disappointing because $15 for that and every notable Sonic game on Steam make this one hell of a steal - but unfortunately we're in a position where most of us have everything already and no-one wants Forces. Even I'm hesitating as I already have Generations and Mania - and they're the most important games in the bundle.

This is the cheapest you can get everything however - prices on Steam even with the Winter sale are much higher. Come January everything will revert back to full price. Decisions, decisions.

I was thinking of doing this bundle, but I'd really only want Sonic Adventure 2/Battle and Sonic Mania as I either don't want the other games or already have them... I have Mania on my Switch but I haven't gotten the DLC yet and I wanted to mess around with mods... hmm.

The cost of Sonic Adventure 2/Battle, Mania, and Mania's DLC comes up to about 9 dollars with the Steam Sale... I dunno. Any thoughts? Any other games in the pack would just be arbitrary/duplicate keys. Which I don't even think you can necessarily do anymore due to a change in how you can activate steam games on the humble bundle. Didn't they make it so you can only activate them all at once and if you have any duplicates, too bad? I don't remember. It has been a while since I bought games through humble bundle.

The only game I need is Sonic Forces, and when I have plenty of other games I want to buy, I think I'll wait for a lower price for Forces.

Unless some poor sap gifts me it out of the blue but I can't see that happening. Just remember, you can finish Forces in three hours.

I do need the game personally for contest judging but that's not going to be until next November anyway. I can wait a little longer.

EDIT: About that...

Ended up going with the $7/$8 bundle, since I already own Mania and don't want Forces. I've never used Humble, but I suppose it's a good deal, since I've never actually purchased most of the games on the list yet.

Same here. I haven't been particularly excited to play the games though... So far I've only played the first All-Stars Racing. I'm pretty sure I'm not playing any of the Sonic 4 episodes. Unless my 5-year-old daughter wants to, I bought this mainly for her.

74K sold with just shy of 3 days remaining. Looks like it'll hit the same level of success as the previous anniversary bundle. So grab this while you can. Time's running out.

I am glad there's plenty of you here that grabbed this - make me feel like I did a good thing posting this thread and alerting everyone.

You sure did! Pretty much every Sonic game on Steam for 15 bucks is an awesome deal.
I was a bit disappointed to realize Sonic Heroes wasn't included, but then I realized it was actually never released on Steam. Kinda weird considering Adventure 1 and 2 are available on it.

Did you miss the Humble offer? Did you miss the Steam Christmas Sale? Well here's your third chance to grab some games.

Thanks so much for this! Didn't get the bundle in the end but still wanted Sonic Racing and it's only ~£1 - so thank you!

I wonder if having Forces and not Mania in there is because they want to even both games' sales a little more.
