Pay What You Like, Say Indie Game Makers

| A group of independent game developers are 
| selling the âHumble Indie Bundleâ until 
| Tuesday, May 11, allowing buyers to set 
| their own price on the five-game package. 
| The bundle includes World of Goo, Gish, 
| Lugaru HD, Aquaria and Penumbra Overture. 
| All games are available for Windows, Mac or 
| Linux, and are DRM-free.


Why there is a Market for Linux Games

| Judging by that pie chart Linux users 
| appear to make up almost 25% of the 
| donations and their average donation amount 
| is almost double that of the average 
| Windows user donation. This means that of 
| the 571,048$ donated thus far 142,762$ is 
| from Linux users. But remember Linux users 
| are cheap and their is no money in Linux 
| game market - right.


Linux users the most generous? â âliberal in giving or sharing; unselfishâ

| The Humble Indi Bundle is a revolutionary 
| way of selling software which Wolfire Games 
| are running for a week.  It allows you to 
| download a collection of great games (World 
| of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, LagaruHD, Penumbra-
| Overture) for a price that YOU decide.  The 
| games are available for Linux, Mac or 
| Windows, contain no DRM and you can even 
| choose how your donation is distributed.
