The fifth iteration of the indie friendly Humble Bundle has ended to certainly break some records. Selling 598,978 copies to make a very humble $5,106,776, this makes it the best bundle to date. The money will be split across charites, game developers and even the guys behind the bundle. Either way everyone has come out with some fantastic games, or a lot of money.
The Humble Bundle contained titles such as Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery, Limbo, Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Psychonauts. If you paid above the average price (which was $8.53 at the end) you even got Bastion, Lone Survivor, Braid and Super Meat Boy PLUS a bunch of soundtracks. Considering that, if purchased separately, this would come to $155. I’ll let you do the math on this one. The average price was a little bit higher for the Linux and Mac versions due to the small population of users.
This also presented a chance for rich folk to throw their money to a good cause for massive internet points. Once again we saw the infamous HumbleBrony battle it out with Notch for the top spot. Notch was holding strong with $12,345.67 until a last minute donation put HumbleBrony at the top with a donation of $13,167.84.
If you missed out on this fifth in a lifetime opportunity don’t worry, you can always wait for the sixth. Sign up for a notification for when the next Humble Bundle goes live, always aiming for more games and even more money.
