All good things must come to an end - so please tell me that you didn't miss the latest Humble Bundle. Humble Indie Bundle 3 is now sadly closed for business after two weeks of providing the best deal of all time, but proudly generated over $2.1 million for independent developers and gaming charities. We've got a few more facts and figures after the break.
I've triple-checked them. Definitely not missing a number this time.
On the official site, the Bundle organisers confirmed that they closed sales on a whopping $2,167,865.55, which makes it the most profitable bundle as yet. Gamers were happy to pay over the average price of $5.82 for the additional five games that were thrown into the package on week two, though it's worth noting that massive donations from Mojang's Markus "Notch" Persson and mobile site MtGox.com skewed this figure somewhat.
Linux gamers proved to be the most generous patrons once again, clocking an impressive $12.04 average compared to $7.73 on Mac and $4.89 for Windows owners.
Independent development is stronger than ever before, and a huge number of innovative titles has helped to define the first half of 2011. With more Humble Bundles planned for the near future, there's nowhere to go but up.
