The latest Humble Bundle, entitled ‘The Humble Introversion Bundle’, has been released today and comes packed with Uplink, Darwinia, DEFCON and Multiwinia, available (as always) for a sum of your choice.
Donate more than the average purchase (currently residing at $3.78) and they’ll also throw in Aquaria and Crayon Physics Deluxe – well worth the extra bit of cash. At the time of writing, the bundle has raised a massive $352,161.21 over 93,065 purchases, with the biggest contribution so far a staggering $1,024.
It’s not everyday you get the opportunity to own over $70 worth of indie gaming gems for as little, or as much, as you’re willing to hand over, but even more noteworthy is the fact that your game purchase can genuinely make a positive difference to children all over the globe. Forget lining Activision’s already over-stuffed pockets with even more of your hard-earned cash, the gaming industry’s own Child’s Play charity “seeks to improve the lives of children in hospital around the world” by providing toys and games for those in care.
Only achievable “through the kindness and generosity of the videogame industry”, the Child’s Play charity has been drumming up support and donations from gamers for the eight years since its inception through game marathons, charity dinners and, with the ‘Humble Bundle’ series, contributions from gamers.
