Humble Indie Bundle 2

It’s Humble Indie Bundle time again. This time the bundle has five indie games on offer: Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos and Revenge of the Titans. You really can’t beat the deal:

Pay what you want. If you bought these five games separately, it would cost around $85 but we’re letting you set the price!

All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

We don’t use DRM. When you buy these games, they are yours. Feel free to play them without an internet connection, back them up, and install them on all of your Macs and PCs freely. There is no time-limit on your downloads.

You can support charity. Choose exactly how your purchase money is divided: Between the game developers, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, or the Child’s Play Charity. Also, if you like this deal, a tip to the Humble Bundle itself would be much appreciated!

One of the coolest things about the Humble Indie Bundle is their complete transparency. You can see, right on the front page, how much money they have taken, broken down by each platform:

They also give you complete control over who gets how much of your money. You can give it all to the developers, the charities, or the Humble people themselves, or split it between the four any way you like (although you can’t tip each game developer a different amount). It would be fascinating to see a major media distributor adopt this model.

Revenge of the Titans

I already own Machinarium, and highly recommend it if you like puzzle games (you can play the first bit online). The others in this bundle really don’t appeal to me much… except Revenge of the Titans which looks fantastic:
