I’m going to copy-paste part of an email sent to me this morning.
Dear Humble Bundle supporter,
I have a small announcement you might be interested in. This morning, I was talking to fellow indie studio Amanita Design. They wanted to donate to the Humble Indie Bundle too — but in a unique way. They decided to donate their award-winning, cross-platform game, Samorost 2, to the bundle! It is really a great game, and I encourage you to go download it on your updated Humble Bundle key page.
Just like that, I get a game added for free. This is what video game development should be about, trying to create awesome games for the sake of creating fun games, and treating your customers like human beings.
My hats off to all the people behind this Humble Indie Bundle. Simply amazing.
This isn’t going to be a long post. I just got done with a 12 hour run of nothing but dungeon after dungeon and I can barely see straight. I just wanted to let everyone know about the Humble Indie Bundle. It’s a PAY WHAT YOU WANT!!!! offer that helps indie developers, but more importantly the two most important gaming/tech charities, Childs Play and The Electronic Frontier Foundation.
The games you get for this are
World of Goo
I can only speak for World of Goo and Aquaria. It’d be worth it for either one, let alone both. Lugaru lets you play as a killer rabbit, so you’ve gotta love that. Penumbra Overture seems like a darker Myst style adventure game. No idea about Gish. YET. I’m heading to give them some money right now.
Remember IT’S PAY WHAT YOU WANT! DRM free! You can even choose to give all of the money to the charities, OR all to the developers! No publishers here either!
Please! If you have any interest, give them at least something. If all you can spare is a dollar, then do it. It’s better than nothing. But if you can spare more, well of course do what you can 🙂
Enough begging. Enjoy the games, I know I will.
