Are you aware of the Humble Bundle? If not, here’s a quick recap: The original Humble Bundle was a pay what you want collection of five indie games (World of Goo, Gish, Aquaria, Penumbra: Overture and Lugaru), where the money you chose to spend would be split between the developers of the games and the charities Child’s Play and The Electronic Frontier Foundation. All of the games were multi-platform and DRM free and so it remains.
The success of the original, which raised $372, 179.51 for the two charities, spurred on the creation of more bundles with games like Braid, And Yet It Moves, VVVVVV, Trine, Shadowgrounds, Atom Zombie Smasher, Frozen Synapse and tons more brilliant indie games. Now we have the Humble Introversion Bundle, with Uplink, Darwinia, Defcon and Multiwinia from the brilliant Introversion Software.
All of these games are fantastic and unique, no other game will make you feel like a hacker quite like Uplink can and I think Defcon is probably the only thermonuclear war simulator out there, well it’s the only one I have ever played anyway. If you can spare a few pounds, dollars, yuan, yen, rupees or whatever to donate to one of the UK’s most interesting developers, and two worthwhile charities of course, you will be more than satisfied with the games you receive in return.
