While I was at PAX earlier this year I had the great opportunity to sit in on a panel about the Humble Indie Bundle, a promotion that went on back in May that gave consumers the opportunity to net World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru, Samorost 2, and Penumbra: Overture for as little as a penny. The promotion managed to raise over a $1 million within a week, of which nearly $325,000 went to charity.

If this is the first you’re hearing of “the Bundle” and you’re feeling a little bummed, don’t fret. A second pay-what-you-want bundle of five new games launched today. Hit the jump for more information on the Humble Indie Bundle 2 and how you can get your hands on a package including titles like Braid and Machinarium for as little as $0.01.

The Humble Indie Bundle 2 consists of Machinarium, Braid, Osmos, Cortex Command,and Revenge of the Titans.

All five titles are DRM free and support Windows, Mac and Linux OS. Separately, purchasing these titles would cost you around $85. However, the Humble Bundle lets you pay whatever you like for this package. So you could net all five titles for as little as a penny.

However, if you’re not a dick you’ll give these guys at least a buck. When I listened to the panel back in August, I learned that donations under a dollar actually cost the guys behind the project a hefty fee through the service they used to distribute the bundle.

In addition to supporting starving indie developers, a portion of the proceeds goes to support charities, Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play. So be generous! The Humble Bundle even allows you to chose who receives your money and how much of it.

As of now, the bundle has already managed to raise over $300,000 with nearly 50,000 purchases. It’ll only be around for so long, so get it while you still can.

  1. Worth it for braid and machinarium at the least.

      Originality is what, I think, we’re all striving for. I think you’re idea of trynig to describe an alien is interesting, but falls apart in two points. For color. There is only so many colors in the human visible spectrum. If it is a color we’ve never seen, chances are it is outside of hour visual spectrum. And that’s why we’ve never seen it. But that raises a new idea. Are these Aliens invisible to us, or a part of their anatomy, because we just don’t have the right sight for it? Hrm As for describing the alien, we’d have to rely on your own experiences world to describe the alien because that is all we have. So if I was trynig to describe some appendage I’d say something like, It’s like an arm with a tail for each finger and all those tails are capped with a single tooth. It’s new. It is different. But we’ll need to use what we already know to describe it. Think about the Platypus. It was alien to the explorers who saw it. But how did they describe it? It’s like a beaver with a duckbill that lays alligator eggs So what is all my rambling about? Taking all your experiences and melding them together in unique ways. And that is near infinite.

    I love the art style for Machinarium, but I’m terrible at puzzle games.

    In my mind, I keep reading it as “Humble Bumble Indie Bundle”

      Thanks for these thoughts. I’m in a hotel room in England, wainitg for a wedding tomorrow and it’s probably more nerve-wracking for me than the bride or groom! I am a Christian + have had SA for 15yrs and with God’s help am working with it + getting through it. Just some days (like tomorrow) are a bit scary. Thanks for the inspiration. I’ll think if that when I’m talking to strangers tomorrow. God bless.

    You’ll however continue to owe the tax moving forward, although Claire, you are not amiss, the government will not put a lien in your household for the tax penalty. I imagine they’ll however impose attention in your unpaid tax liability. So, I suppose you could get this path for a long time, but all youare doing is accumulating a duty obligation using the government. It’s the IRS to, if there is one thing you don’t want to continue to owe income.
