Humble Jumbo Bundle (not books, but good)

I've played a couple games in this bundle and consider both of them to be good, if you're into puzzle-solving.


Rusty Lake: Roots - A point-and-click adventure game with lots of weird little puzzles. I think it started life as a phone or tablet game. It's a family saga that takes you from the family's beginnings, through a few generations, and up to what is almost the series' present. It's one of my top favorite entries in the Rusty Lake/Cube Escape series and works perfectly fine as a standalone. If you'd like a taste of the gameplay style, most of the games in the series are available for free - search "Cube Escape" in whatever app store you use. My favorite of the free ones is probably Cube Escape: Birthday (although, be warned, there's some sudden violence, a moment when

a shooter comes and kills the main character's whole family

(spoiler show)

). All the games have varying degrees of gross or violent moments, but the characters involved are generally pretty emotionally detached from those moments, if that helps.


Obduction - If you have the same Myst nostalgia that I have, you might already own this. I haven't finished it yet - I've gotten through two of what I think are probably three total connected worlds. It has some of the same issues as the Myst games - times when it's difficult to tell what you should be doing next or whether you're even on the right track - but it also has many of the elements that made the Myst games so good. My favorite thing so far has been the moment when I learned that the world of Obduction is actually much, much larger than it at first appears to be.

Amelia Earhart in another dimension
Elsewhere #1 - Jay Faerber,Sumeyye Kesgin,Ron Riley,Andrew Robinson

In a fantasy world that I love.  I love how she's reconciled here: she's smart and strong-willed, and I want to know what happens to her. 


And I didn't have the energy to write long reviews, but I am done now.

At the core this is a horror story
Extremity #1 - Daniel Johnson,Daniel Johnson,Mike Spicer

A comic book artist writes a fantasy story about a main character who is an artist - and loses her hand.   The hand she draws with.   This is a very personal story about a very personal fear, and maybe that's why it haunted me, and resonated with me, so much.

Wonderful new horror series
Redlands #1 - Jordie Bellaire,Vanesa Del Ray,Jordie Bellaire,Vanesa Del Ray

Beautifully illustrated, and with a wonderful storyline that hooked me from start to finish.   When a coven of witches descends on Redlands, what happens to the law enforcement?   Well, I'd target them first - and so would this coven.   


What happens to the town next?   Well, this issue didn't get that far, but it's the question on my mind right now.

What if aliens used Earth as an intergalactic gas station?
Port Of Earth #1 - Zachary Kaplan,Andrea Mutti

My real question is what happens when we run out of water since they're using that for fuel.   


Anyway, loved this, but it just didn't move me as much as some of the other offerings.   So four star.
