Sometimes awful, insipid, bloated pieces of gaming apathy get released and - invariably due to a licence or franchise name - sell an unfathomable amount of copies. Such ridiculousness is counterbalanced, though, when something like this happens, and a bundle that sees consumers pay what they want for six fantastic indie games pips $1 million in sales, having exceeded 214,800 purchases.
The average spend has been calculated at $4.77, with consumers able to choose to split the profits up any way they choose between the developers and charities Child's Play and EFF. The Bundle hit the $1 million mark after a $4,096 purchase from MtGox, a bitcoin exchange site, nudging out Notch, the developer of Minecraft, who'd previously topped the payments board with $4,048.
The latest Bundle, released on July 26th, made $400,000 in a single day and gives players the opportunity to get to grips with some of the finest indie games of the last year or so. The Humble Indie Bundle 3 contains And Yet It Moves, Cogs, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Hammerfight, VVVVVV, along with recent addition Steel Storm and a limited trial of Minecraft.
If for some bizarre reason you haven't checked it out, we can only assume that either you actively dislike good games, or you haven't really been bombarded with links enough. There's still a week left to nab it. Click here to check it out!
