The Humble Indie Bundle 6 went live today, and it’s full of great additions to anybody’s game collection. Not only does this bundle contain some great games as well as their soundtracks, it will be DRM free, cross platform, and help charity. Oh yeah, and you get to pay what you want for it.
The Bundle will include Torchlight, a wildly popular action RPG, Rochard, a sci-fi action platformer, Shatter, a physics-based brick breaker, Space Pirates and Zombies, a top-down space combat sim, and Vessel, a steampunk puzzle platformer. All of these games’ soundtracks are also included.
Pay more than $1? You get the Steam codes for each game in your bundle. Pay more than the average price paid, which is fluctuating between $5 and $6? You get Dustforce, a frantic acrobatic platformer, in addition to the other five games.
You also get to allocate how much of your money the developers get, how much goes to the Child’s Play Charity, and how much goes to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
This release strategy seems to be working quite well. The bundle just got announced today and has already sold over 6,000 copies.
