Humble Bundle has a new bundle up this week (and this week only) for your consumption. For just $30, the Freedom Bundle will net you almost 40 games and a small pile of eBooks. For this bundle in particular, the entirety of the proceedings go to charity. The site hints that there may be more items coming to the bundle, too.
While most Humble Bundle packs are multi-tiered pay-what-you-like affairs, the Freedom Bundle is a bit different—just one tier for everything. Some of the biggest indie hits of the last few years are in the pile, along with some games you might have not noticed until now. Among the collection, you'll find puzzlers like The Witness and Day of the Tentacle Remastered, action titles like Super Meatboy and Ninja Pizza Girl, and more abstract stuff like World of Goo, VVVVVV, and The Stanley Parable. The super-silly Octodad: The Dadliest Catch and the ultra-chill Stardew Valley made the cut, too, if you somehow haven't picked those up yet.
On the written-word side of things, practical works like The Smart Girl's Guide to Privacy and Information Doesn't Want to be Free accompany stories like Nate Powell's Any Empire and Neil Gaiman's A Little Gold Book of Ghastly Stuff.
Any way you slice it, there's enough stuff here to keep anyone gaming and reading for months, and a good portion of the games are compatible with Linux, Mac, and SteamOS, alongside Windows. If you do decide to shell out the $30-or-more and partake of the offering, your money will be split however you like between donations to the ACLU, MSF (Doctors Without Borders) and IRC (International Rescue Committee).
The Freedom Bundle is live right now, up through 11:00 PT on February 20. If the current set of games and books doesn't appeal to you, almost every Star Wars game you've ever loved is up for sale, too.
