We've all heard the whining: games are too expensive, their DRM is too intrusive, and none of them run on Linux. Well, it's time to buck up, because the latest Humble Indie Bundle addresses all of those complaints. This collection of indie titles is free from the shackles of burdensome DRM schemes. Each and every one of the six games included in the bundle runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. And the price? You pay what you want.
Bought separately, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight, And Yet It Moves, and Steel Storm would set you back over $50. Of the over 216,000 people who have bought the bundle so far, the average price paid is just under $5. Not all of that money is going to the developers, though. After you choose a price, you can then allocate how much cash goes to the developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Penny Arcade's Child's Play charity. There's also an option to funnel a percentage of the total to the folks behind the Humble Bundle itself.
Need additional motivation? You'll get Steam codes for all the games in the bundle. Time is ticking, though. The Humble Bundle will only be available for another week.
