The Humble Indie Bundle is a project aimed at not only selling a ton of quality indie PC games, but raising money for charity as well. And it's doing a very good job.
Wolfire Games' John Graham and Jeffrey Rosen (two of the organisers of the bundle) revealed today that the two bundles have so far raised a combined $US3 million. Considering the levels of piracy surrounding the packs, along with the fact people could pay whatever they wanted for the games — even if it was $US0.01 — that's quite an achievement.
Of that total, $US1 million was split between two groups: the Child's Play charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. That's what will make people feel good, but I'm more intrigued by what happens to the other $US2 million. Only a handful of indie developers have had their games featured in the bundle: to spit $US2 million between them is one hell of a pay day.
