The Humble Indie Bundle

Add Comment! By John Graham on May 4th, 2010

Introducing the Humble Indie Bundle!

This is an awesome pay-what-you-want indie video game / charity promotion that we are trying out. Please watch this video to find out what it's all about, or read on!


The Humble Indie Bundle

Pay What You Want

Basically we're taking 5 classic indie games: World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD and Penumbra Overture and bundling them in a pay-what-you-want sale. Please remember though, we're just humble indie developers and the more you contribute, the easier it will be for us to make awesome games in the future.

Cross-Platform: PC, Mac and Linux

You've heard us mention how important it is to support Mac and Linux in addition to Windows, and for this promotion we didn't want to leave anyone out (we owe special thanks to the amazing Ryan Gordon for helping make this possible).

No DRM

We already echoed the philosophy which should be common knowledge among mainstream developers about why DRM doesn't make sense. As our thanks for your participation in this humble bundle, your user-experience will not be inhibited by any DRM.

No Corporate Middle Man

Please know that there is no distributor acting as a middle man for this promotion and taking a cut of the proceeds. Your contributions will go directly to support the developers and charities (minus payment processor fees).

Buying The Bundle Helps Charity

By default two charities, Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation share an equal part of the bundle proceeds with the five games. However, you can also customize how your donation will be split in step 3.

So Please Help Us Spread The Word!

We are really excited to see how this turns out. We don't have a marketing budget so please tell your friends about the bundle. Tweets and Facebook shares are greatly appreciated.

We also want to thank the other indie developers for being bold enough to partake in this exciting experiment with us. Aright, enough reading, GO VISIT THE SITE!
