We absolutely love the Humble Indie Bundle here at MakeUseOf, as you’ve probably noticed from our relentless reporting of past events. This time it’s back for it’s seventh outing of cheap independently-developed games, inviting users to pay what they want for four games and a film with the chance to pick up two more indie titles for paying more than the average donation.
Included in this year’s bundle is the motion picture Indie Game: The Movie, a film that documents the arduous process of devising, developing and releasing an indie game. Playable titles take the form of The Binding of Isaac (plus Wrath of the Lamb DLC), Closure, Shank 2 and Snapshot. Gamers who pay above the average (which at the time of writing is hovering around the $6.20 mark) will also get Dungeon Defenders (plus DLC) and Legend of Grimrock.
Windows, Mac and Linux versions of all games are available, with six Linux and two Mac versions making their debuts in this bundle. All games are DRM-free, though there is an option to pay an extra dollar for a key that will unlock some of the titles on Valve’s Steam platform. As is customary for the Humble Indie Bundle, each game purchased comes with the official soundtrack downloadable in either MP3 or FLAC (lossless) formats.
In addition to choosing the price, customers can decide for themselves exactly where their money goes, with options for donating to the Child’s Play Charity, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the bundle content providers and the organisers of the bundle themselves with the option to split funds between all four. Gamers have two weeks to grab a bargain and can pay using PayPal, Amazon Payments or Google Wallet.
This year’s Christmas bundle is already off to a great start, with over 600,000 downloads so in a matter of hours. Let us know in the comments what you think of this particular bundle, and whether you beat the average and walked away with Grimrock.
