Indie games supporting charities is something that defines what I love about the growth of the gaming industry. The Humble Indie Bundle is available until May 11th and allows you to pay (whatever you want) for 5 incredible indie games and have your money distributed (however you want) between two charities and the developers. Wolfire has put together a trailer to walk everyone through the details.
This isn’t just some shoddy game collection either, we’ve got award winners here. Independent Games Festival winners World of Goo, Gish, and Aquaria join Lugaru HD and Penumbra Overture to complete this pack of DRM-free downloads for your Windows, Linux, or Mac computer. Genuinely fun and quality games that have a combined $80 value.
The charities you will be helping are Child’s Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). Child’s Play helps children’s hospitals across the world with donations of games, toys, books, and cash and was setup by the founders of Penny Arcade. The EFF is a digital rights advocacy group raising awareness to legislation that threatens freedom in a networked world.
Please pass this along to your friends in order to support charity and indie game development.
