The Humble Indie Bundle

JohnBFive amazing, cross-platform indie games, one gorgeous sale. The Humble Indie Bundle lets you pick up World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru and Penumbra: Overture for one magically low price of whatever you want to pay. All titles are DRM-free and run on Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems, so you're free to play what you like, how you like it!

Here's the humble part: you decide where your money goes. You can distribute the cash any way you please, sending it to the game developers, one of the bundle's chosen charities, or a mixture of both. It's your choice, but either way, you get the games, and everybody wins.

Go check out The Humble Indie Bundle, get a few really great games, and help out a few charities/indie devs. You've got just over three days before the sale ends!

Why are you reading comments when you should be buying the Humble Indie Bundle, friend? I am very disappointed in you.

This is actually a great idea, and I hope they've gotten more serious buys than people who pay pennies. (You don't have to pay an ungodly amount, but please be fair to the creators and their hard work if you pick this up.) I picked it up specifically for Penumbra and Aquaria, which I've been meaning to play for approximately two billion years, but they're all great titles.

Wow, this is really great!

Too bad im on total money lock-down >_>
I really would like to buy World of Goo

Dora's right, why are you reading comments instead of buying this bundle right now? RIGHT NOW! 5 of the most awesome games ever created in one massive bundle! A value of $80! Still, be nice and pay more than pennies.

Interesting that Windows people pay the least, Linux people the most, and Mac users in the middle.

Make your own conclusions on that one.

Took you a while. xD

It's a great bargain, but I won't be taking advantage of it. The amount I could afford to pay is far less than the amount I feel morally obligated to pay, so I can't in good conscience make the purchase.

I dunno if this is the right place, but I have a question about Penumbra: In the very beginning, when you have to open the hatch, which way does it turn? It seems like you should turn it left, but it turns easier right. Help!

I got World of Goo ages ago for regular retail. It alone is completely worth the $20 they charge for it.

Man, this is the sort of thing that I really want to support. But I feel I should wait until I can pay what these guys deserve, and I just don't have that right now. I've already played World of Goo and can tell you all it's fantastic! All the others are games that I've been meaning to buy.

Im having a real problem with penumbra... There is a black bar that is constantly going from the bottom to the top of the screen. I've tried turning the graphics all the way down to no avail. Any help?

Last time I was having graphical glitches with a game, I turned all of the settings all the way up. It worked fine. Try that if you havn't already

Now they've added a sixth game to the bundle! Samorost 2 - just got the e-mail when I woke up this morning.

And the payment thing is probably a result of linux players being extremely grateful that there's 6 great games all in one place that actually run on our OS of choice without having to emulate windows. Or perhaps people who tend towards linux tend to be older and more generous, but I like my first explanation better.

Fantastic pack. All works well. I feel really happy in that I've paid a reasonable amount, and got some great games. It feels good to know there is no middle man. The service is very fast. It dispeled any previous doubts I had.

Since this ends in a day, I regretfully simply paid what I can afford right now, while vowing to make some donations in the future.
