Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle Earns $1.1 million

The latest Humble Indie Bundle, part of a not-for-profit initiative where players pay what they want for games and decide if the proceeds go to the developers or a charity, has sold 231,799 copies, earning a total of $1,115,387.88.

The Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle originally came with just Frozen Synapse, but SpaceChem and TRAUMA were added later on. The average size of donations was $4.81 -- those who paid more than this amount received the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle, which also came with Trine, Shadowgrounds: Survivor, Shadowgrounds, Splot, and Jack Claw.

Windows users paid an average of $4.13 for the bundle, Mac users paid $6.96, and Linux users paid $9.41.

While the Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle proved to be a huge success, the highest-earning bundle in the history of the initiative was the third Humble Indie Bundle, which closed in August. That particular bundle generated $2.16 million and came with Crayon Physics Deluxe, VVVVVV, And Yet It Moves, and Hammerfight. Steel Storm, Atom Zombie Smasher and a limited trial of Minecraft were offered as bonuses.

    It really is a phenomenal amount considering the much smaller list of games in this list - massive kudos to the guys

    I'm really glad the bundle did so well, but somehow I missed out on contributing to the charity.
    I didn't even know this was on.
    I've signed up to the mailing list now, but FS would have been a nice addition.

    Well apparently no one at Kotak(a)u bought it, or you'd be using an up-to-date Frozen Synapse screenshot ;)

    Proof that games can still make money without costing $100+ at retail.
    You think anyone will bother pirating those games when you can have them for any price over $1 and even have all that go to charity?
    Course not, it's a great price and a great cause and some great games.
    I would be interested to see the income split for the developers vs charity. And if they made a profit.

      actually you're wrong, plenty of people pirated the first 2 humble bundles. which goes to show what terrible people they are.

    I bought it even though I didn't really want Frozen Synapse. However it was worth making the donation for Trine and Spacechem. :)
