As a Linux user it is a frequent annoyance that I feel I dont get to play any of the good games. As a general consumer I am often irked at the price of stuff and more so at being treated as a criminal after paying for goods. Goods I might as well have downloaded; and even though I didnt, still get treated as if I did. Its a near permanent frustration.
Sometimes however, I see people who respect their customers and Sometimes, these people do Legendary stuffs!! 🙂 Im talking about the Humble Indie Bundle I bought yesterday. I tweeted but I should ve blogged earlier. Its their fault though, I was too busy playing the Awesome games. A short pause today though to inform EVERYONE to check out their awesome special! One pack, containing World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru, Penumbra and Samorost 2!
The Humble Indie Bundle is a unique kind of bundle that we are trying out.
Pay what you want. If you bought these five games separately, it would cost around $80 but we’re letting you set the price!
All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux. We didn’t want to leave anyone out.
There is no middle-man. You can rest assured that 100% of your purchase goes directly to the developers and non-profits as you specify (minus credit card fees).
We 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.
Your contribution supports the amazing Child’s Play charity and Electronic Frontier Foundation. By default, the amount is split equally between the seven participants (including Child’s Play and EFF), but you can tweak the split any way you’d like.
And now, thanks to a humble donation from Amanita Design: all contributors are given a free copy of Samorost 2!
The pack contains World of Goo (Amazing, Pretty, FUN!), Aquaria (Pretty, Havent played much), Gish (Amazing fun, Pretty and a real challenge!), Lugaru (didnt try yet), Penumbra (Great atmosphere, Havent played much – And if you like it, you can buy the other Penumbra games for $5 at their shop using a discount code included in the bundle!) and Samorost 2 (didnt try yet), all for the amazing price of whatever you think they re worth 🙂
You ll have to hurry though, the offer only stands till tomorrow! (or so, check their contdown)
Its a great bunch of games, so Check It Out!
