The Humble Indie Bundle isn't so much a bundle as a great big whopping hessian sack stuffed full of quality games, charity warm-and-fuzzies and potatoes. The latest numbers show that, while the potatoes have been sorely neglected, 421,000 bundles have been purchased, amounting to $US2.2 million spent on sweet indie gaming entertainment.
That's $US100,000 over the HIB 3 and with 20 hours remaining on this bundle, it could very well end a bit higher.
Which sounds like madness, almost. But, when you factor in that the average gamer has paid US$5.39 on all five games (and seven additional ones if you spend over this), and that some of this money is going to the two featured charities — the American Red Cross and Child's Play — it's unclear how much the developers will end up with. I'd be curious to hear how they went, purely for statistics' sake.
If you've picked up any of the HIBs, how much did you end up parting with?
