We recently highlighted the Indie Royale All Charity Lightning Pack, a charity bundle made up of Osmos, BUTTON, The Shivah and Blueberry Garden. All of the proceeds were divvied up between a collection of charities hand-picked by the developers. Gamasutra announce that $25,529.68 (after credit card and Paypal fees) has been raised for Amnesty International, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, act!onaid and Unicef, some donated as much as $200 to the bundle.

A nice bit of news there. According to the site, 4571 people bought bundles, and Indiegames and Desura waived their typical fees to deliver the games to buyers gratis. The Graduation Bundle is due to arrive in a week, keep an eye on the Indie Royale site for details on what that'll contain.

Adding the word "lightning" to things tends to make them instantly exciting, and adding the word "charity" makes them nice, so the Indie Royale team have hit on a good thing with their "All Charity Lightning Pack." It'll let you pay a small amount for a bundle that includes floaty gobble 'em up, Osmos, violent but awesome party game, BUTTON, Rabbi-tastic adventure The Shivah and the surreal, serene explorathon that is Blueberry Garden.

ALL profits are divided between four charities, including Amnesty International, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, act!onaid and Unicef. The minimum price for the pack fluctuates. If more buyers pay over the required minimum, the price will drop. Otherwise, it'll rise gradually. Right now it's set at a pleasantly low £2.57 and the total donations figure just ticked over the ten thousand mark. WELL DONE EVERYONE. The deal will close in 79 hours at the time of writing.
