Pay-what-you-want bundle offers DRM-free games for charity fundraising

Once again, the Humble Bundle team has put together a package of DRM-free indie games in support of its chosen charities, with users paying whatever amount they want for four cross-platform games. Buyers paying above the average price ($4.03 at present) also get two additional games, with more said to be coming. Soundtracks are included for some of the games, all of which run on the PC, Mac, Linux and Android platforms (system requirements vary).



Purchasers can divvy up their donation between the developers, charity, and the Humble Bundle purveyors themselves. The supported charity options are Child's Play, which supplies gaming equipment and software to children's hospitals, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The games included in the core bundle include twisted casual game Little Inferno, sci-fi quest game Gemini Rue, parachuting thrill game AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome (and the Android equivalent, called AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! (Force = Mass x Acceleration), and humorous challenge game Jack Lumber.

Buyers who pay over the average also receive turn-based, chess-based adventure game Hero Academy and Anomoly 2, a reverse-tower defense game -- as well as any additional games added to the bundle later. The bundle offer ends with the year on December 31. Android users should note that the Android versions of most games come with steep equipment and OS version requirements. A number of the games are making their Mac and Linux debuts with this bundle, and should be considered 1.0 releases in such cases.
