It’s all in the title – Choose the price you want to pay and get the Humble Indie Bundle pack which includes the following: Gratuitous Space Battles, Cave Story+ (very good), Jamestown, Bit.Trip Runner, Super Meat Boy (challenging as hell), Shank, and Nightsky HD. Meet the average price (which is currently a measly $5.28) and get an additional five games (which includes VVVVVV) on top of that!
As much as this seems like advertising, it definitely isn’t. I believe in a good cause and being appreciative of hard work (especially when it comes to Indie gaming).
Support the Child’s Play Charity. I have and always will be in full support for the Child’s Play Charity (which has nothing to do with that movie with Chucky the doll). CP is a game industry charity dedicated to improving the lives of children with toys and games in our network of over 70 hospitals worldwide which includes purchasing new consoles, peripherals, games, and more for hospitals and therapy facilities. Yes, I’m part of the major population that isn’t a dumb fool who thinks gaming causes mass murderers.
Support the Indie gaming industry. I think it’s brilliant and extremely gutsy what these Indie developers have done to let you buy their bundle of games for whatever you feel like paying. These games are immensely addictive and I hope you’ll all pick up a bundle and give it a shot.
How much? That’s completely up to you. Unless you’re going to be throwing in $165 (the estimated cost of all these games), you’re getting discounted, high-quality games. On top of that, you’ll definitely meet the average and get the five bonus games.
So this Christmas, do a good deed and have a great time with these casual games while you’re at it!
