Pay-what-you-want for five awesome DRM-free games on Mac, Windows, and Linux: Braid, Machinarium, Osmos, Cortex Command, and Revenge of the Titans.

Posted by Henley on Dec 14th, 2010

Introducing the Humble Indie Bundle 2!

Pay-what-you-want for five awesome DRM-free games on Mac, Windows, and Linux: Braid, Machinarium, Osmos, Cortex Command, and Revenge of the Titans.

If you haven't heard of Revenge of the Titans before, it's because it is being launched directly into the bundle. Another cool Humble Bundle exclusive is that Braid and Cortex Command are available on Linux for the first time inside of the bundle.

The bundle comes equipped with two soundtracks and one mini-album for Machinarium, Osmos, and Revenge of the Titans.

Make sure to watch the video below:


Be sure to watch it in HD! Like last time, you can divide your purchase between the developers and our two favorite charities: the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play Charity. However, new this time is a customizable "Humble Tip" which goes to fund a new company Jeff and myself recently started: Humble Bundle, Inc. We have some humble ideas on how to change digital distribution that we're going to try out.

Don't worry though, this should not change anything for Wolfire fans. This is just putting a different label on what we've already been doing for some time. It makes it more clear that the core Wolfire team developing Overgrowth is really David and Aubrey, while Jeff and myself will be able to make Humble Bundles even if a Wolfire game is not inside of it. We will still be around helping out though, as we have been during the development of the Humble Indie Bundle 2.

Please make sure to spread the word by tweeting, clicking the like button on the YouTube video, and sharing the bundle on Facebook.

I think my beard may make a reappearance this week as I probably won't have time to shave. Though this year instead of trying to man the live chat by myself there will be reinforcements from friends, and fellow game developers.

The Humble Indie Bundle 2 won't be around forever so check it out now!

Bought in a heartbeat; 60% of my money to the developers, 40% to charity.

Currently my Cortex Commander link won't work though, but I will wait 'n see if it gets sorted.

Every time I update that site, the total number of purchases is increased by about 2.
So unless people are buying like hell, are they lying about the total number of purchases?

Also happens to the total revenue.

What you on about you don't give them your money it just goes straight to devs through paypal etc. There is no other secure ways of doing it other than paypal etc.

Technically, by using their service you are providing them with business. I know that certain payment services get a small percentage of the total purchase, so I imagine the same holds true for those two. I also understand and respect Theon's decision to boycott the companies. I see that they have the Google checkout option available, so I'm wondering why that would be a problem.
