Humble Indie Bundle 3 now includes Humble Indie Bundle 2 games

The Humble Indie Bundle 3 has expanded in all directions. The pay-what-you want package originally offered Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, And Yet it Moves and Hammerfight, then Mojang threw in a trial to let purchasers play Minecraft for free until August 14. Then rotating robo-blaster Steel Storm jumped in, but that still wasn't enough.

Now, if you pay more than the average contribution (currently $5.22) for the Humble Indie Bundle 3, you'll get the Humble Indie Bundle 2 games as well.


Humble Indie Bundle passes $1,000,000 in sales, adds new game

The Humble Indie Bundle is a remarkable success story, since the third version of the pay-what-you-want scheme began last week it's already taken more than $1,000,000 in sales.

The money is split between developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Child's Play and the cost of maintaining the bundle itself, with purchasers getting to determine how much goes to each. Now they've added a sixth game to the bundle: top down shooter Steel Storm: Burning Retribution, and made the introductory video you see above.

The Humble Indie Bundle already contains Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight and And Yet it Moves, plus free access to Minecraft until August 14th. If you've already bought the bundle, you'll still get the extra game - you'll find it on the Humble Indie Bundle website. Those who have the bundle on Steam will see Steel Storm: Burning Retribution automatically added to their library. If you haven't bought it yet, you have seven days left before the offer ends.


The Humble Indie Bundle 3 is go, pay what you want for five indie games

The third Humble Indie Bundle is now available. It's your chance to pay whatever you like for Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight and And Yet it Moves. A portion of each payment is allocated to the developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play. You can use sliders on the purchase page to decide the percentage that each party gets, and there's also an option to tip the Humble Bundle organisers. Each game works on PC, Macs and Linux systems, and comes DRM free.

There are 13 days left to go on the deal, and more than 92,000 bundles have been sold. At the time of writing, the deal has made $437,366 already, and it's only been up for half a day. It looks as though this bundle is already set to break the records set by Humble Indie Bundles 1 and 2.
