As you probably know, I am a fan of the Humble Indie Bundle. And the new one is very exciting. Check out this video, and try to put up with the odd sing-song narration:
So, what are you waiting for? Give them money, now! And visit EFF and Child’s Play! ^_^
Edit: Since I posted this they’ve made some additions! First they added Steel Storm: Burning Retribution.
Then they added the second Humble Bundle! Which is the one I missed! Are they marketing at just me?! That bundle contains Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos (which is awesome), and Revenge of the Titans! Crazy!
So, you should probably get this. ^_^
Edit 2: They added Atom Zombie Smasher. This is getting nuts!
I had nothing but praise for the Humble Indie Bundle. Not only did they produce warm fuzzies, they even open-sourced a bunch of the games soon afterward (they were Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru and Penumbra Overture).
Today I got two new fun things from the folks behind this. The first is pretty cool if you are using Mac OS X or Windows (as an aside, the Linux people paid more on average than those two “classes” of gamers; just thought I would start a contribution war ^_^): you can now activate the games in Steam.
I just did, and it installed the games that it could find. For some reason a couple of them aren’t available for my platform (which is Mac OS X, at the moment). They will probably figure that out soon enough. And now I have achievements to unlock! Yay!
The other surprise is that there is something cooking up over at the dedicated site… something about a Humble Indie Bundle #2, coming soon.
Good on ya, folks. ^_^
I support open source, indie game developers, DRM-freedom, the EFF and Child’s Play.
The Humble Indie Bundle is a no-brainer. ^_^
