The Humble Indie Bundle

I was just checking some of the latest updates on my Twitter and noticed @nickgravelyn had tweeted about The Humble Indie Bundle.

This wasn't the first time I'd seen mention of the bundle but it is the first time I decided to check it out. I clicked through to the site and was surprised to see that this wasn't just some bundle of useless looking indie games, but each game in the bundle I'd actually heard of, and I probably would play.

The list includes World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru, Penumbra: Overture and Samorost 2. Now some of those names might not mean much to you but most people I know have at least heard of World of Goo and Penumbra. The other games are all great examples of highly stylized indie games which are fun to play.

What do you have to do to get all these great games? Simply make a donation through the bundle's website in aid of Child's Play (you should check out the Child's Play website and their Amazon wishlists as it's a great way to donate to charity and know exactly what your money will be spent on).

A donation of any amount is fine, but this is for charity so make a donation that you can afford and that you think will be of some use to the charity. This is a time limited deal, there is only 5 hours remaining as of writing this article (4pm UK time).

I have to admit I don't often donate to charity but I thought this bundle was too good to pass up on (and I had been looking at buying World of Goo on steam just a few weeks ago too). I'm looking forward to playing my new indie games over the next few weeks and will post some further updates as and when I do get time to play them.
