    Lightbulb The Humble Indie Bundle 3 Released [Slashdot]

    JimWise writes "The fourth Humble Bundle has been released (the third to be released was the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle). Included in this bundle are: Crayon Physics Deluxe by Klooniegames; Cogs by Lazy 8 Studios; VVVVVV by Terry Cavanagh; Hammerfight by Kranx Productions; and And Yet It Moves by Broken Rules. Each of the games in the bundle is DRM free and available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, as well as available through Steam. As with the other Humble Bundles, you pay what you want and customize how much goes towards the developers, EFF, Child's Play, and the Humble Tip."

    I'd buy this if I didn't already own VVVVVV and Crayon Physics Deluxe. Awesome games. I highly recommend anyone into indie PC games to pick this up.

    You could be like me and buy it for $1 as this sale, like all the other Humble Indie Bundles, is name-your-own-price. I already had three of the games (Crayon Physics Deluxe, Hammerfight, and And Yet It Moves) and knew that VVVVVV was worth the price of admission from a demonstration I played. Cogs was a "bonus" in my mind, and now I've got Mac and Linux copies of the rest of the games I already owned copies of beforehand.

    Considering that it was the last spare dollar that I had, I would say it was worth the cost. Perhaps if I get more money before the sale is over I'll increase the amount by $4 - $9 as you can adjust your paid price to be more at any time.

    By the way, this is the fourth HIB (1, 2, Frozenbyte, and 3) and I've bought from each one of them... even though I usually have at least one of the games in the packs. How many copies will I end up owning of World of Goo when all is said and done? I don't even particularly care for the game!

    So far this Humble Indie Bundle is hugely financially successful like all the others. In the first seventeen hours, they processed over half a million dollars. And these are 2011 dollars!

    Isn't this the set that was found to have a high rate of piracy, despite the minimum price only being $1?

    *waves hand* There is no such thread.

    Anyway, if you buy the set now, you also get a free guest pass for Minecraft that expires on August 14.

    And people, if you can, please give more than $1. $1 is barely enough to cover their credit card / PayPal fees.

    This distribution method can handle $1 purchases, otherwise it wouldn't be an option. Some people have upped thousands... Amazing (Notch is #1!). I want to encourage this distribution scheme. Name your own price + a charitable drive is so very win, and for everyone involved. This is what purchasing games in the 21st century ought to be. It works!

    It's an option.

    I'm saying, don't be cheapskates, donate MORE THAN $1. :P

    Sure, but even if you paid a dollar, good. Cheapskates would just pirate it.

    There are varying levels of cheapskates.

    True, but no one can change that, unless it's yourself.
    You can start at the dollar and then adjust it higher later. Pay what you think it's worth, or what you can manage, before or after playing them a bit.

    A sixth game has been added to the bundle: Steel Storm! If you've already bought the bundle, just go to your download page, and it'll be there.

    Now give the guys another dollar! :P

    Everyone who bought Humble Bundle 3... has received all the Humble Bundle 2 games for free.

    BUT. If you haven't bought it, you now have to pay more than the average purchase at the time of your uh, purchase. Or something. The video explains it better.

    So, I notice that the bundles are DRM free, meaning I can connect them to my Steam account. Question, are all of the games in either bundle on Steam?

    Edit: A little poking around shows that, yes, all of them, with the exception of Cortex Command, are on Steam.

    THIS IS AWESOME!

    I picked up the first bundle but ending up missing out on the second one for some reason. I wasn't too psyched about this bundles lineup but now this makes it a definite purchase for me. The average purchase price that your now have to beat is still only is only 5 bucks and some change.
