Humble Indie Bundle 3 goes over $1 million; adds sixth game

With one more week to go before it ends, the latest edition of the Humble Indie Bundle "pay what you want" sales event has reached a high milestone. The event's official web site has revealed that the Humble Indie Bundle 3 has gone over the $1 million revenue mark. In addition the organizers of the bundle have now added a sixth game to the mix; the sci-fi arcade action game Steel Storm. The game joins the five previously announced indie titles in the bundle: the 2D physics puzzle game Crayon Physics Deluxe, the puzzle title Cogs, the platformer game VVVVVV, the 2D action game Hammerfight and the physics based platformer And Yet it Moves.

All six games can now be purchased for any amount; normally buying all six games would cost well over $50. All six games are DRM free and all come in Windows, Linux and Mac versions. In addition any purchase of the Humble Indie Bundle 3 will get access to the full version of the hit sandbox game Minecraft until August 14. So far the highest bid for the games has been $4,096.

Keep in mind that the bundle deal also allows people to donate money to two charities, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play, if they so choose. You can also sent a "tip" to the Humble Bundle team which helps to pay for "the bandwidth and development of this promotion". This latest edition of the Humble Indie Bundle is scheduled to end at 7 pm Eastern time on August 9.

Well it does not let you do $0.01 because of the costs of processing credit cards, it has to be at least $1. I donated what I could and I am downloading the games now

The Humble Indie Bundle is awesome. I just bought this one for $20 (same price I paid for the last one). The developers and various charities deserve it. If I had more money to spare, I'd gladly pay $100.

It's a shame there will always be people paying 0,01$. But it's relieving to hear that the whole initiative is making revenue.

There will always be those people with no shame. They just see it as a convenient way to get away with piracy at the expense of having a Paypal account. They are the type that wouldn't buy the games in the first place.

If I was a developer, I would rest my mind on the knowledge that many more people taking the chance to play my games because of the $.01 .

Meanwhile, I would have paid 15$, but I took 5 off the top because I already had VVVVVV and Crayon Physics, mostly due to the amazing soundtracks that come with them.
