Humble Indie Bundle #2 Launches With Braid & Machinarium
As was foretold earlier this month, the second Humble Indie Bundle has now launched – offering another five top-notch indie games under a ‘pay what you like’ scheme.
It’s the same deal as last time. Put in the amount you want to pay, choose how to distribute that amount (between the game developers, Child’s Play, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Humble organisers themselves) and then receive five Indie games. Once again, every title is playable on Windows, Linux and Mac.
But which titles are they, you ask? They are these: Braid, Machinarium, Osmos, Cortex Command and Revenge of the Titans.
That last one is particularly interesting, because it’s launching as a ‘Humble Bundle exclusive.’
The site has a ticker which updates in real-time, tracking the money raised and number of bundles sold. At present, over 20,000 bundles have been purchased for a collective price of more than $140,000 USD. To give you an idea how quickly these tickers move, the total was only at $130,000 USD when I started writing this piece ten minutes ago.
If you need any more details, take a look at this handy explanatory video (warning: contains a few seconds of bad Christmas music.) The Bundle will be available until 21 December.
