How much would you pay for a copy of World of Goo, Gish and three additional games that don't prominently feature black blobs dripping with indie cred? Thanks to the Humble Indie Bundle you pay exactly "whatever."
Wolfire is offering a five game bundle that includes Aquaria, Penumbra: Overture, Lugaru, Gish and World of Goo at a pay-what-you-want rate. These cross-platform games are DRM-free and run on Mac, Windows, and Linux, so no one need complain. (Okay, OS/2 users, you can complain about being left out.)
In addition to letting indie game enthusiasts name their price, Wolfire and the participating indie acts are letting buyers send their contribution directly to charity, Penny Arcade's Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, specifically. Give it all to charity, divvy it up evenly, whatever!
The fun and the good vibes from doing good are free, so be hasty with the purchase.
The Humble Indie Bundle [Wolfire]
Mar 30, 2010
Indie game developer Edmund McMillen goes full circle, so to speak, as Bigshot Toyworks releases a couple of plush toys based on his award-winning PC game Gish, starring a loveable ball of tar out to save his girlfriend.
With a new Gish game on the horizon and a cameo by the grinning black ball in Super Meat Boy for WiiWare, it's high time we got our own version of the loveable slimeball to cuddle secretly before we go to sleep. Gish comes in two sizes, 4 inches and 8 inches, which will run you $8 and $16 respectively at the Bigshot Toyworks website.
