A new month means one thing; brand new games! And, if you’re looking to add a plethora of new games to your PC libraries, Humble has your back.
For a small cost (up to £15.99 a month), you can download and keep up to 12 new games. And the better news is, you’ll be supporting some great charities whilst you’re at it!
Humble’s charity of choice for March is; Girls Who Code. As Girls Who Code notes, back in 1995, only 37% of computer scientists were women. Today though, it’s dropped down to 24%! As a result, Girls Who Code is reaching out to women around the world in a bid to close the gender gap by 2027.
See? Just by buying some great games, you can help make an impact. Speaking of games;
