The latest Humble Bundle launched with great fanfare last night, offering gamers a compilation of critically-acclaimed indie titles on a 'name your own price' basis. But it turns out that gamers are actually quite a generous bunch - in just over 12 hours, the promotion has nearly reached sales of $1 million.
At time of going to press, Humble Bundle 8 has raised over $957,000 on over 168,000 purchases. The highest contributor right now is Mojang's Markus 'Notch' Persson, who personally contributed $5,000 to the cause.
The selection of titles is pretty incredible, too. For any price, customers can purchase Dear Esther
, Little Inferno
, Thomas Was Alone
, along with soundtracks for each title. If you pay over the average selling price, you also get Hotline Miami
and the Proteus
soundtrack. All are DRM-free, of course.Why not give the Bundle a look by clicking here?
