The Humble Origin Bundle is not only the fastest selling bundle ever, the most popular ever, and the highest earning, but it looks set to double all previous monetary records – making it even more impressive that every penny of this thing goes to charity.
At the time of writing it’s just under $100,000 from reaching the $10 million threshold that we called a couple of weeks ago, and the purchases continue to pour in. They’ve reached over two million at this point, with the average purchase price creeping slowly upwards and almost hitting $5. Of course with no MAC or Linux compatibility, so the overall average is at the typical PC gamer low.
If you haven’t thrown a few dollars at this bundle yet, you only have 30 hours left to do so. If you don’t, you’ll be missing out on a lot of great games, including: Dead Space, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2: Maximum Edition, Mirror’s Edge, Dead Space 3 and Medal of Honor – all available with Steam keys to those that spend at least $1. However, beat the average and you’ll also get Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3 + Starter Pack, which includes the “Stuff” and “Late Night” expansions. Recent additions also include Red Alert 3: Uprising and the original Populous.
Everything you spend with this bundle is split between the Humble Bundle tip and several charities – so no money goes to EA here guys. Those charities are: Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, American Red Cross, GamesAid and the American Cancer Society.
KitGuru Says: Go on. Give £3. That’s all you need to spend to get all those games. It’s totally worth it.
