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 adollar 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 topirate the first Indie Bundle. For shame.
