Humble Bundle V Surpasses $3 Million Mark

June 5, 2012 -

The Humble Indie Bundle V has managed to raise well over $3 million dollars. As of this writing the total number of payments made is at $3,076,159.60 on the sale of 391,566 bundle purchases. While that number is pretty impressive, the pay-what-you-want DRM free bundle is doing so well because of the games in it.

Humble Bundle V offers Bastion, LIMBO, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Psychonauts, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Bastion requires that you pay more than the current average price of $7.86 and the soundtracks for all of the above listed games are also included.

The charities you can donate to include Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. For more information on the latest bundle, check out www.humblebundle.com.

That's pretty cool, though I REALLY need to stop buying indie games when they come out, because I keep buying these things, even when I have most of what they're offering.

Ah, but did you get the soundtracks for those games before?  And DRM-free binaries for multiple OSes?  And the source code (not this time)?  And support charities in the process?

Think of the Humble Bundle as the DLC versions of those software products.  Well, maybe not - it kind of depends on how you view DLC.

If they could just work out a deal with Valve to let you gift extra copies, and maybe made that a donation tier, it'd be pretty cool.
