Lugaru (pronounced Loo-GAH-roo) is a third-person action title available for Mac OS, Windows, and Linux. The main character, Turner, is an anthropomorphic rebel bunny rabbit with impressive combat skills. In his quest to find those responsible for slaughtering his village, he uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy involving the corrupt leaders of the rabbit republic and the starving wolves from a nearby den. Turner takes it upon himself to fight against their plot and save his fellow rabbits from slavery.

Introducing the Humble Indie Bundle!

This is an awesome pay-what-you-want indie video game / charity promotion that we are trying out. Please watch this video to find out what it's all about, or read on!


Pay What You Want

Basically we're taking 5 classic indie games: World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD and Penumbra Overture and bundling them in a pay-what-you-want sale. Please remember though, we're just humble indie developers and the more you contribute, the easier it will be for us to make awesome games in the future.

Cross-Platform: PC, Mac and Linux

You've heard us mention how important it is to support Mac and Linux in addition to Windows, and for this promotion we didn't want to leave anyone out (we owe special thanks to the amazing Ryan Gordon for helping make this possible).

No DRM

We already echoed the philosophy which should be common knowledge among mainstream developers about why DRM doesn't make sense. As our thanks for your participation in this humble bundle, your user-experience will not be inhibited by any DRM.

No Corporate Middle Man

Please know that there is no distributor acting as a middle man for this promotion and taking a cut of the proceeds. Your contributions will go directly to support the developers and charities (minus payment processor fees).

Buying The Bundle Helps Charity

By default two charities, Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation share an equal part of the bundle proceeds with the five games. However, you can also customize how your donation will be split in step 3.

So Please Help Us Spread The Word!

We are really excited to see how this turns out. We don't have a marketing budget so please tell your friends about the bundle. Tweets and Facebook shares are greatly appreciated.

We also want to thank the other indie developers for being bold enough to partake in this exciting experiment with us. Aright, enough reading, GO VISIT THE SITE!

If your account is linked to a checking/savings account, it can withdraw automatically. (if that's what's stopping you)

Awesome Idea! I'll grab this even though I have a few of the included games :P

WoG was retail AND wii AND DRM free AND steam all at the same time. I don't think any other indy game has ever done that. I don't think *ANY* game has ever given you so many choices on how to buy!

Haha... This is sort of counter-productive for me. I don't have the money for what they're worth, and I can't bring myself to pay less than what they're worth. Conundrum...

Will the statistics be released to the public? I think that would be quite interesting. I fear most people just paid some cents. well it seems normal these days...

You have some cool marketing ideas that are well-deserved and hurt no one. I like how you guys make the most out of your projects by doing the right thing. Big developers could learn from this!

there should be a predicate for developers with a soul. Why not make one?

$30, about £20 in real money.

It felt about right.

$20 to the devs, $5 to each charity

Hum, only about $7,50 on average... Thats like $1,50 for each game - looks like nothing...

But I think the publicity and mass of ppl buying this now will hopefully be worth much more :)

Btw...Anyone else having Lugaru.exe dying on you every time you die inside the game? I've tried it (both the demo and HD-version) on several computers, and it's always the same:(
Pretty sad, as the game is ******* epic.

Thanks! Now it doesn't just end every time I die...though it still freezes sometimes when I complete a level:/ I'm beginning to get tired from replaying the same levels over and over...
Still addicted, though;)

I think it has got something to do with the strange red video-clip that stutters over my screen at the end of each level... Is there a quick and easy way to remove this video?

Someone paid $500,
three people paid around $200,
and a bunch of people paid around $100.
I don't think everyone's in it for the games, a lot of people are doing it to support the devs and charity.

I've paid 50$. IMHO it's a very nice way to support the devs / charity (and all of those games rock). I know that not all people (esp. younger ppl) can't afford much money, "pay what you want" is a very great way to also get those players involved. A bit of money is always better than "piracy".

And this is why I respect an indie developer more than any big time developer, with the possible exception being Valve.
