The very first Humble Indie Bundle launched over seven years ago, offering some indie classics like Aquaria, World of Goo, and Penumbra: Overture at a price of whatever you wanted to pay, and it gave you a chance to send your game-purchasing proceeds straight to charity. It proved a tremendous success, and now Humble Bundle is one of the biggest digital game stores this side of Steam. Today, Humble Bundle have announced that they’ve generated over $100,000,000 for charities all over the world.

They’ve been leading the charge in helping gamers get in touch with their charitable side, and after initially working with a small selection of charities like Child’s Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, they’ve dramatically expanded their charity options to a list encompassing thousands. That list includes the American Red Cross, charity: water, Action Against Hunger, the World Wildlife Fund, and the Mental Health Foundation.

Their annual streaming promotion with Yogscast brought in $2.4 million last year alone, and the Humble Freedom Bundle raised $6.7 million for Doctors Without Borders, the International Rescue Committee, and the American Civil Liberties Union in response to the US immigrant ban.

Humble Bundle began as a collaboration between two guys still living with their parents, but now encompasses a massive digital distribution platform selling PC and mobile games alongside ebooks and software bundles. They’ve taken a turn at publishing, and now offer a monthly subscription service with a curated selection of indie titles.

The current bundle is a selection of titles published by Sega, Capcom, and Atlus. They’ve also got free copies of Psychonauts to give away today, so jump on that. They’re, uh, also currently doing a special selection of games featuring busty anime girls. It’s okay, you can tell your significant other that you’re only playing HuniePop for the match-threes.
