The hit pay-what-you-like indie game phenomenon is back! After already raising over a million dollars for charity through the last two bundles, this year’s passed the $500K in donations mark in less than a day! Humble Bundle is blind to social status, probation status, or platform. Rich, poor, Mac, and PC alike, all are welcome. But no DRM, and no Mexicans.
The Bundle helps give to needy causes in two ways; it brings awesome games to those deprived of quality indie-tastic entertainment, most likely small children and unemployed young men who would be cage-fighting next to hobos in an abandoned warehouse for kicks otherwise, and also directly by donating a portion of the proceeds you determine to a charity or starving game developer with every purchase.
This year’s pack includes Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, And Yet It Moves, VVVVVV, and Hammerfight. As a bonus, anyone who buys the Humble Indie Bundle 3 will now also get access to Minecraft through August 14th! Filthy degenerate homelessmen don’t pay off half as good as this sweet deal and I’m sure most of you have given one of them money before.
These guys make it so rewarding and easy donating feels like you’re winning a prize in some sort of wonderful raffle where all you need to buy a ticket is goodwill and the loose change you found in your vacuum cleaner. Even if you are a tight-fisted douche-bag you can go ahead and pat yourself on the back while you make your cheapskate $2 donation and laugh deliciously at what suckers they are, and feel good about it. But keep in mind, the more you give the more inherently selfless and sexually attractive you will appear to the opposite sex. While you’re at it Casanova, why not throw on an extra download for the lady?
What are you waiting for? Get in on this action!
