Humble Indie Bundle 3 now live

Gamers can name their price for five independent titles, including And Yet It Moves, Hammerfight, VVVVVV; proceeds go to Child's Play, Electronic Freedom Foundation, developers.

Humble Bundle Inc. is continuing its charity work with a third Humble Bundle, which launched today. Gamers can not only name their price for the collection of five independent games, but they can also choose how the proceeds are to be divided among developers, the Child's Play charity, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the promotion's organizers.

This year's Humble Bundle is collecting for charity.

Available until August 9, the Humble Bundle includes And Yet It Moves, Hammerfight, VVVVVV, Cogs, and Crayon Physics Deluxe. Each game is available for the PC, Mac, and Linux and does not contain any kind of digital rights management. Games can be installed onto as many computers are desired and can be redeemed through digital distribution stores Steam and Desura.

As of press time, the Humble Bundle has collected more than $115,000 from nearly 28,000 total purchases. According to the analytics embedded on the promotion's website, the average purchase comes in at $4.22. Linux users are the most generous, giving an average of $10.36 for the bundle, followed by Mac users at $5.51, and Windows users giving an average of $3.45 for the bundle.

"Linux users are the most generous, giving an average of $10.36 for the bundle, followed by Mac users at $5.51, and Windows users giving an average of $3.45 for the bundle" Interesting trend...what does it say about us? :)

I bought it - and I urge everyone else to do so. These are all great titles, and you are giving to worthy causes.

Linux users are generous because they get a good Operating System and it's for FREE!

@gatsbythepig I sincerely hope you're joking...taking advantage of charity organizations is the lowest of lows.

@gatsbythepig: You're right, it isn't possible to steal. But it is possible to be a jerk by misusing the generosity of these people. Let your own conscience decide.

It's caught me at a bad moment again, but I've still managed to dig up 12 bucks for them, even though I already have Cogs on Steam. After giving 90% to Child's Play and the EFF (both worthy foundations) last time, I decided to give the devs a bigger share this time around. I'm also proudly declaring my platform as Linux, and as Cogs is such an awesome game, I'm stoked that I don't have to boot into Windows any more to play it.

Maybe the windows average is down because of people like me. I bought 4 copies as gifts and put in $25 total and just split it between them all.

Go there and buy these games now. I owned three of them already but I wanted to support this program and everything involved. I also gifted it to many friends and family.

I'm hoping the mainstream developers have been paying attention to this bundle. There is a market for games on Linux, now start porting them so I can quit using Windows.

Sadly I already have most of those.

The secret to why Windows users paid less on average: because they have more retail games to buy, therefore have less in their wallets.

Is Child's Play affilliated with that evil Chucky doll?

Nice idea, but I'll just donate to Child's Play directly, thanks. I already own most of those games anyway.

even $1? ... They make you feel guilty and cheap if you pay less than $5. :( $5 bucks is a more than excellent price for all those games, though
