This week's Humble Bundle Weekly sale ended a few minutes ago, netting Jeff Vogel – the one man army that operates Spiderweb Software – a fair amount of change. As of this writing, the Humble Bundle Weekly Sale generated over $182,000 from the sale of nearly 39,000 bundles featuring Spiderweb's catalog of role-playing games. As is usually the case, Linux users paid the most for the bundle, with an average purchase price of $6.35, followed by Mac users who paid an average price of $6.19, and Windows users who brought the average down by paying an average price $4.43.
The Spiderweb Software bundle included the Geneforge Saga (contains Geneforge 1, Geneforge 2, Geneforge 3, Geneforge 4: Rebellion, and Geneforge 5: Overthrow), Avadon: The Black Fortress, The First Avernum Trilogy (contains Avernum, Avernum 2, Avernum 3, and Blades of Avernum), Avernum: The Great Trials Trilogy (contains Avernum 4, Avernum 5, and Avernum 6), and bonus game art and hint books.
If you paid more than the average price, it unlocked Avernum: Escape from the Pit and Nethergate: Resurrection.
We don't know how much of that money went directly to Vogel, but we do know that it is the biggest amount of money he has made in a week's time and he's been making games for nearly two decades.
On a related note, a new bundle has launched, offering eleven great albums from the legendary Jim Guthrie. Find out more about that at www.humblebundle.com/weekly.
