Sales for the "pay what you want" Humble Indie Bundle 3 have passed the $2,000,000 mark, an impressive factoid which also provides a handy reminder that today is the last day you can snap up the mega-bargain. If you haven't yet, do so!

The Humble Indie Bundle 3 is now the most successful of the four Humble Bundles so far (1, 2, the Frozenbyte Bundle, and 3), comfortably passing #2's record of $1.8 million. And it's not over yet: you have until 4pm Pacific today to buy the Bundle. If you already have it yourself, you can always buy more Bundles as gifts, to give away now or save for later.

For the very reasonable price of 'as much or as little as you jolly well please,' The Humble Indie Bundle 3 gives you And Yet It Moves, Atom Zombie Smasher, Cogs, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Hammerfight, Steel Storm, and VVVVVV. All games come DRM-free for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and can be activated on Steam and Desura too.

If you pay more than the average price (currently $5.81), you'll also receive the five games from the second Humble Indie Bundle: Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos, Revenge of the Titans. These can also be activated on Steam and Desura. Ultra-bargain!

By default, the Humble Bundle money is split between the HIB 2 and 3 developers (27.5% each), the EFF and Child's Play (15% each), and the Bundle's organiser, Wolfire Games (15%), though buyers can adjust the shares. Assuming people don't tinker with the percentages too much, well, that's a whole heap of money for everyone involved and for charity.

The Humble Indie Bundle continues to get robust, as yet another title has been added to the growing collection.

Atom Zombie Smasher from Blendo Games is now included with all Humble Indie Bundle 3 purchases. Since it launched on July 26, the bundle--which splits profits between the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Child's Play, and indie developers--has been sold over 280,000 times.

This marks the third addition to the third Humble Indie Bundle. Previously, the bundle added the bonus game Steel Storm and then gave away the games included in the second Humble Bundle.

Sold separately on Steam, Atom Zombie Smasher is priced at $9.99 and is available on PC and Mac as a SteamPlay game. The average price for the third "pay what you want" Humble Indie Bundle is currently listed at $5.46, at the time of publishing.
