Once again, a group of indie developers have teamed up to give you a chance to support gaming charities and receive their goods at the same time. It's the return of the Humble Indie Bundle (http://www.humblebundle.com/)!

Pay what you want for this bundle of five indie games including: Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos, and Revenge of the Titans. All games are DRM-free and you will receive access to Windows, Mac, and Linux versions of all five titles.

When checking out you will be able to choose to divide up your contribution between the developers, the EFF (http://www.eff.org/), Child's Play (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/), and an option for a "humble tip." If you're looking for a holiday gift idea, they also give you the choice of receiving a giftable code for your purchase.

That's really cool. If I didn't own all of them already, I'd bite in an instant.

I might gift them to some friends though.

Not at the moment. It was something like 7 months after the first bundle before they sent out surprise Steam keys. It's possible that they will do the same for this one but there's currently no indication of it on their page.

I own half of them but I don't care, it's a good cause and they're DRM free. I love these gentlemen like my own children.

I own all but Cortex Command and Revenge of the Titans, but those two are easily enough to make it worth throwing an extra Child's Play donation in the mix.

Indie game devs are pretty much the best. Let's all make sure they know we think so. :D

I only own Braid, but just on the 360. Definitely get this and chip equal amounts between the three recipients. Great way to make your Child's Play donation if you haven't already!

I purchased Coretex Command a year or so back from the dev, once I'd seen video I knew I had to have it. Dumped tons of hours into that since. Fantastic sandbox. Eagerly awaiting the next update on the release.

By the way, just to add more guilt to the offer, it should be noted that some of these devs live and die by these sales.

Additionally, the bundle includes soundtracks for Machinarium, Osmos, and Revenge of the Titans.

Indeed. I mean, don't do it out of guilt, do it because it's awesome and makes you awesome by association.

But if that's not reason enough, do it out of guilt. ;)

I used to own none of them. Now I own all of them. And the developers and a couple of good charities get some too! That's a deal that can't be beat.

Best forty cents I've ever spent. Thanks, Peanut!

Joking, of course.

I have two of the games but a chance to support the developers and CP, is a plus so i'll throw some cash into the kitty.

Those are the only two I don't own as well, but I'm still tempted to pick up the pack just to show my support. It's amazing what indie developers have done on the PC in the last few years. They've really blown many of the big publishers out of the water, IMHO.

Picked up my bundle for $10.00 with an even split.

It's already up to over 600k, and the top contributor is Notch with 2 thousand.

Since we have no Child's Play drive this year, this was it. Bought the bundle for 50.

This bundle is perfect for a little idea I've had. :)

Edit - Here's that little idea! (http://www.colonyofgamers.com/cogforums/showthread.php?t=20927)

Update: the new bundle is now redeemable on Steam! And on Desura, whatever that is.

I don't even WANT any of those games and yet I want to buy this simply because it's redeemable on Steam now.

You could always whip something up in MS paint, Gimp, or Photoshop and possibly win a copy. ;)

I sunk in and bought it.

I will warn people...dunno if it'll change, but Cortex Command and Revenge of the Titans are NOT on Steam. The other three show up with the code, however. Any one know if they'll be added eventually or not?

Yep, it says that once they are added to Steam they will also be yours. Win!

Coretex Command will likely only hit steam once it's out of alpha/beta status.

Quoth the "Move Info" button on the Humble Bundle site:

On your download page, you can optionally get a key to redeem the games on Steam and / or Desura. Not all of the games are on Steam yet: Cortex Command and Revenge of the Titans will automatically be added to your library once they make their Steam debut.

They've added the first humble indie bundle! in thanks for how well this one is doing

I already have all of the games in the first bundle, but it's a cool giveaway nonetheless.

if you've already brought it then you get them but if you are buying it new you have to pay above the current average price to get it. Very cool idea... I own most of them too but it was a nice thing to do
