Humble Indie Bundle V closes with $5.1 million in the bank
ALL THE MONIES!
The Humble Indie Bundle V sale has finished up, and it was a biiiiiig one. The biggest yet, in fact, by more than double the previous record of $2.37 million. Twice as nice for the same low price, or something like that.
The promo saw 598,962 bundles sold for a grand total of $5,106,529.34, with an average purchase price of $8.53. The pay-whatever-you-want deal included Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP, Limbo, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, and Psychonauts, plus soundtracks, plus Bastion, Lone Survivor, Braid, and Super Meat Boy as bonus extras for those people who paid more than the average purchase price.
A bidding war between the Humble Brony Bundle initiative and Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson saw the two contributing final amounts of $13,167.84 and $12,345.67. It’s for charity, though, so that’s at least one child saved from dinosaurs.
