    I don't know if you guys and gals are aware of this but the creators of the Humble Indie Bundle have released the Humble Indie Bundle #2.

    The HIB is a collection of games from independant developers.
    You pay whatever you want for the bundle.
    Proceeds can go to the devs or charity or both ... and you can also help the HIB people with a tip to help with their bandwidth costs.
    There is no DRM. At all You get the game installers and you can load them on as many PCs as you want.

    Right now the average donation for HIB#2 is at $7.51. If you donate more than that you get HIB#1 too. (11 games in all).
    Games in both bundles are ...
    Aquaria, Samorost2, World of Goo, Gish, Lugaru, Penumba, Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos and Revenge of the Titans.

    Check it out at their web site.

    World of Goo is easily worth $15 or $20 bucks too. :)
    Pry open those wallets for charity at Christmas time.

    You can also gift the games to someone if you want.
    You can also go in cheap (to see if you like the games) and then donate more anytime you want if you feel it's worth it (you'll get a new key to access the games, but just ignore it if you have them already).

    If you download all the games (not including the soundtracks which are available for some games too) it comes to about 1.2GB or so (You have to download them seperately though). The seperate soundtrack downloads are included for whatever you donate so you can pull both the games and the downloads for one donation.

    Interesting how Windows has over 90% of the market yet it only accounts for about 65% of the money brought in. Windows users are cheapskates. XD

    I don't think it matters where you are. You just pay with paypal or a CC and they e-mail you a "key" (it's your specific url to the download page) and you just download the games.
    You can download them as many times as you want as long as you can get to the page.
     
    LifeOnMars says thanks.

    Ditto. I'm downloading via torrent to save them some bandwidth.


    There's only 1 day, 18 hours left. For what, I don't know. :confused:


    It looks like they will all fit on a single DVD5 or two CDs (without soundtracks). It is 1.59 GiB fully extracted (zipped games and soundtracks unzipped).
