The Humble Indie Bundle #2 Adds Even More Bang For Your Buck With #1

by Rainier on Dec. 24, 2010 @ 2:53 a.m. PST

Earlier this year five independent game developers joined forces and created a bundle of games, and they are doing it again. The Humble Indie Bundle #2 consists of: Braid, Machinarium, Osmos, Revenge of the Titans and Cortex Command, and to top it off you can pay whatever you want.

The Humble Indie Bundle #2

Pay what you want. If you bought these five games separately, it would cost around $85 but we're letting you set the price!

All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

The games don't use DRM. When you buy these games, they are yours. Feel free to play them without an internet connection, back them up, and install them on all of your Macs and PCs freely. There is no time-limit on your downloads.

You can support charity. Choose exactly how your purchase money is divided: Between the game developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, or the Child's Play Charity. Also, if you like this deal, a tip to the Humble Bundle itself would be much appreciated!

How much is this bundle worth to people? Let's take a quick look.

Please note, Cortex Command and Revenge of the Titans are still under active development. You are eligible for all future updates! The bundle makes a great holiday gift that will keep improving over time.

We just added the Humble Indie Bundle #1 into the Humble Indie Bundle #2!

This is a pretty large change, so it requires some explanation that can't be fit in a little box.

If you're an owner of one of the 180,000+ Humble Indie Bundle #2s already purchased before this announcement, you will find a complimentary Humble Indie Bundle #1 on your download page. I'd like to sincerely thank all of you for supporting the bundle and making it a success!

If you enjoy this gift of six additional games, please consider adding more to your order on your Humble Bundle download page.

For new customers

For new purchases of the bundle, the Humble Indie Bundle #1 is only unlocked if you pay more than the current average. If you'd like to pay under the average and increase your payment later on your download page, that will work too. You just need to increase the average at some point to permanently unlock the first Humble Bundle. This is not possible for gifts though, as the order amount is secret.

You will find a new slider that lets you decide how much you'd like to give to the five main HIB #1 game developers (Samorost 2 is a freebie).

A word about Steam

Our Steam keys for the Humble Bundle #1 are a little glitchy: they don't unlock Samorost 2 or the Mac versions of Gish and Aquaria. We will try to fix this but since it's ultimately out of our control, we can't make any guarantees. Additionally, we only have about 150,000 of them. I believe we will be able to get more, but currently, they are on a first come first serve basis. Also, no promises about activating your HIB #1 games on Desura at the moment.

Get your bundle!
