The Humble Indie Bundles or Humble Bundles are a series of game bundling experiments that allow users to purchase collections of multi-platform DRM-free independently developed video games online in a "Pay what you want" manner, with proceeds bypassing middlemen and going directly to the indie developers and charities.

Post news Report RSS Humble Indie Bundle 2, now with 11 games!

So just when you thought the HiB2 couldn't get any better, 6 games from the HiB1 have been added to the mix.

Posted by on

Alright so this news maybe a little late, but after the week we have had launching Desura, Indie Editors Choice, Mod Editors Choice and getting DDOS'd, I hardly think you can blame us! Plus this news is simply too good to miss, so in-case you missed it, it is worth checking out.

I am of course referring to the Humble Indie Bundle 2, a pay what you want indie program which as well as helping developers also helps charity. It originally launched with five awesome games: Braid, Machinarium, Osmos, Cortex Command, and Revenge of the Titans, but recently added another 6 from the first bundle: World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru, Penumbra and Samorost 2.


Better still, we are participating with the HiB2, so if you've brought the games you can activate them over on Desura. Give it a try, and support indies and us (ModDB and IndieDB!)

I hope you will use the option to give them a bit more money now. 0.35$ of the 1$ goes to paypal, so you spend 0,65 for 10 gamedeveloper teams... That is not a very human move...

I agree with Ponpat. I'd pay at least 45 dollars. >:l

If he'd turn to piracy, at least he wouldn't get full benefits. It is actually better than paying approximately nothing for full benefits. Sadly.

So the whole point of this is to give people the option of what to pay AS WELL as helping good causes and your proud of yourself for paying practically nothing? People are right to vote your comment down.

I don't see anything wrong with paying 0.65$ to these games. It's the thought that counts. Rule is simple "pay what you want". He added something to the sum and if I were one of the developers I wouldn't mind. It's still a lot better than pirating these games.

I gave 10$ to first and haven't bought the second bundle yet because of lack of money in bank account (missing Steam sales is so painful), but if I had the money I really wouldn't mind giving away 1000$ to these great people.

So I'm willing to say "it's OK" to pay 0.65$ and win another supporter rather than saying "that's shameful" and win a hater.

Well thats up to you but to pay $1 that is then split what 14 ways or something including charity and the server hosting is not 'a lot better' than piracy because after the split its next to nothing anyway.

Quite frankly id rather have someone hate me for trying to stand up for something good than have them like me for doing nothing at all.

there are telephone services, u only have to call them and u give a dollar or euro or so. they get more money with it, cause everybody can spend that easily, and more ppl will do the same. if this would have been properly advertised would have been an epic win, in this case it was only a good idea. the guy got burried cause he was laughing about getting 10 games for only nothing...

we are working on having the games show up instantly, at the moment there can be a 10 minute delay.

thanks for using Desura too, we are going to make it rock just like ModDB & IndieDB so expect this to be only the beginning!

That bundle is just epic! 11 games for Win, Mac and Linux + Steam + 2 Soundtracks. Thats something I would wish from EA or something: You buy a game and then you can install it on 3 different OS.

If you already paid then you already get all the old ones too.
If you have not yet bought the pack then you need to pay above the current average to get them.

Purchased most of these at full price, others I bought with the original Bundle (#1) and said what the hell and bought both packs again now. Got em setup both in Desura and Steam. Love these bundles and hope people are giving back to these developers. Surprised at how many ppl are proud to say they spent $1 :/

I like the fact that companies like onlive have paid for getting there name on the top donor list (like advertising) while supporting the indies.
