New Humble Bundle Wants to Help You Make Your Own Games

Get almost $2,000's worth of software for as little as $12.


The latest Humble Bundle has kicked off, and this one is a bit different than the usual fare. Rather than simply offering games on the cheap, this bundle offers a variety of tools to help you create your own games.

Included in the bundle is software like RPG Maker VX and Spriter Pro (the full list follows below). There are also some actual games in various tiers of the bundle, but the focus is clearly on helping you to become a game-maker. Like in the recent Borderlands bundle, part of what you get here are coupons for discounts on certain software and expansions.

As with all Humble Bundles, you can get some of this bundle's contents by paying anything you want. Beating the average sale price (currently $9.45) gets you more, while paying at least $12 gets you everything on offer. Humble Bundle says that the total value of the included software is an astounding $1,985.

You're free to split your money between the developers, Humble itself, charity groups, and--in a new move--a fund that will be awarded to the winner of an upcoming game-making contest that anyone can enter.

The Humble Game Making Bundle runs for the next two weeks. Halfway through, on July 14, additional titles will be added to the bundle; those who buy the bundle before then will be entitled to all of these, provided they beat the average sale price at the time of purchase.
