Another Incentive To Buy The Humble Indie Bundle

It’s great news that the good people behind the Humble Indie Bundle came back with the Humble Indie Bundle 2, but the news just got even more good newsy. The second bundle – Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos and Revenge of the Titans – has already been a huge success. 187,752 people have spent $1,392,587.77. That’s a lot of money, and to thank everyone for their purchases (and entice more people to donate), they’ve sweetened the deal by adding the Humble Indie Bundle #1 to every purchase that exceeds the current average donation.

Here are the deets (from their statement):

For new purchases of the bundle, the Humble Indie Bundle #1 is 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).

Don’t worry, everyone who’ve already purchased the Humble Bundle #2. You’re getting Bundle #1 complimentary.

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.

Proceeds go to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play (and the Humble Bundle guys themselves, if you want). So, obviously you’re heading over right now to make a donation. Right?

Happy Holidays.
