Humble Indie Bundle: Buy 5 great games, support two awesome charities

get Sword & Sorcery EP, LIMBO, Psychonauts, Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Bastion and pay only what you think these games are worth and decide how much goes to the devs and charity.

A few years back, app bundles were all the rage — pay a little money to get a lot of software, usually one or two a-list titles and a bunch of generally not so desirable apps. Here is an entirely different take that lets you pay any amount you want for up five indie games while donating money to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play Charity.

Moreover, the games — Sword & Sorcery EP, LIMBO, Psychonauts, Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Bastion (bonus title) — in the Humble Indie Bundle 5 can be played on Mac, Linux and Windows.

To get the fifth bonus game, Bastion, all you have to do is $1 more than the current average payment, which was $7.58 as of this writing. Further, if you part with yet another $1, Humble Indie Bundle will give you Steam keys so you can play on the Steam network.

Still not enough? You also get the soundtracks for all five games delivered in pristine FLAC format.

The kicker? All of these games and the soundtracks are provided DRM-free, so you can (within reason) share the wealth a little.

Lastly, you can choose how much of your payment/donation goes to developers and the charities.

And, doesn’t it just figure that Windows’ users are cheapest of all? This is such a great deal…

What’s your take?
