Humble Double Fine Bundle Gets You Four Titles For Dirt Cheap

by Rainier on May 8, 2013 @ 2:22 a.m. PDT

Double Fine Productions exhibited a complete lack of humility in announcing the immediate availability of the Humble Double Fine Bundle, an incredible opportunity to receive four classic Double Fine games for the price of your own choosing.

Astonishingly, the Humble Double Fine Bundle includes Psychonauts, Brütal Legend, Costume Quest, and Stacking as completely DRM-free downloads for—get this—Windows, Mac, AND Linux. It's the first time Brütal Legend, Costume Quest, and Stacking have ever been available for all three of those platforms. Incredible. Plus, we're throwing in Steam codes for those who pay a dollar or more. Excellent.

"It's true: We're amazing," commented Tim Schafer, president and CEO of Double Fine.

"We generally like to be a little more humble about these deals, guys. It's kind of our brand," said Humble Bundle co-founder John Graham, a total buzz-kill.

"I sometimes find it hard to fathom how great we are,” Schafer added.

You probably thought those flavor quotes meant that's all there is to this bundle. Think again. Those who contribute $35 or more will gain Backer Access to Broken Age, Double Fine's upcoming crowd-funded adventure game. Backers get a new episode of 2 Player Productions' Double Fine Adventure documentary every month, as well as a wealth of development materials, ongoing updates, and private backer forums. Existing backers can gift their access to a friend because, let’s face it, we all need a break sometimes.

Okay, now we're really done. Ha! Fat chance. Contributors at $70 or above will receive an exclusive commemorative t-shirt designed by Soundshapes and Polygon graphic designer Cory Schmitz. After all, we're innovators.

And not just innovators, but philanthropists. Customers can choose to donate any amount of their purchases to Child's Play Charity or the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Charity, innovation, platform independence. These values are what we're all about. It's nothing, really. We're doing the best we can, just like everyone else.
