Humble Indie Bundle



If you've never heard of any of these games, they are all very popular games in the indie PC gaming world. Personally, World of Goo is my favorite.

Here's a link to the page:

Purchases contribute to Child's Play charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Buy good games for a good cause!

note: If you didn't watch the video, they are 4 indie games that you can buy for a price of your choice. No DRM, PC only.

I'm getting errors and a lovely image when I try to get it all for free. Sort of defeats the purpose of "pay what you want".

I know $1 works. Paying nothing isn't paying anything, so technically that doesn't fall under "paying what you want".

I didn't try under $1 though, so I don't know if it works for less than that.

Thanks for sharing, I was planning on buying World of Goo at some point and some of the other games look really cool too. I just bought it and also got Samorost 2 for free.

Really cool of the developers to do this. Here are some companies that are probably only being run by a couple of people and they're willing to put up all their sales through this for charity. Meanwhile, huge game companies usually don't. Good for these guys.

Awesome deal, I already have World of Goo but will gladly give these others a try. Jumped into Aquaria first and am liking it so far.

I feel kind of cheap only paying $10 but it's above average at least.
