New Humble Indie Bundle goes on sale for charity

It’s gaming for a cause. The latest edition of The Humble Indie Bundle is on sale now. The new Humble Frozenbyte Bundle contains Trine, Shadowgrounds, and Shadowgrounds: Survivor.  Buyers will also receive Jack the Claw and Splot. Both Jack the Claw and Splot are in development and will be made available once they are completed.

The games are DRM free, work on Windows, Mac, or Linux, and proceeds go to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play. Buyers can set their own price, and even determine how much money goes to developers and how much money goes to charity. While it’s possible to pay as little as a dollar for the bundle, the top contributor has paid $1,500. That donation comes from the game streaming service, OnLive. At the time of writing, the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle has raised a total of $419,062.30. Unfortunately, despite the likeable pay-what-you-want pricing scheme and feel good philosophy of the project, there were still those who chose to pirate the first Indie Bundle. For shame.

    @Lolspamm0r Jack Claw was cancelled but they are releasing the prototype with the bundle, so you can at least see what they were working on before it was cancelled. I wish I could do that for some other games that were scrapped.

    I'll buy them, I'll pay like 5 maybe more, but I wonder if they'd accept 00.0000000000001 cents. What do they mean by lowballing (i understand the phrase) I mean how much money would be considered lowballing? ReCaptcha: Therita Sorrow's, sounds like a name.
