You have just 10 hours left to buy the Humble Indie Bundle - a collection of six indie games that run on Windows, Mac and Linux. No, they aren't open source, but we think there are four important reasons why you should seriously consider investing:
- You get to pay what you want. Even $0.01 gives you a licence for all the games on all the platforms.
- You get to choose how much of that money goes to charities, including Childs Play and the EFF. The default split is 50/50: half to the developers, half to charity, but you can customise that if you like.
- If you want to encourage more people to make commercial games for Linux, this is your big chance - send them some cash and you're helping fund the next generation of Linux games. And, yes, you do get to tell them you're running Linux as opposed to Mac/Windows, so they know for sure.
- It includes World of Goo, which we already told you is absolutely awesome on Linux.
But you know what really makes us proud? Right now, the average Windows user paid $7.74 for the games. The average Mac user paid $10.06. But the average Linux user? Well, we paid $14.24 - and we're accounting for 25% of all their sales, too. Yes, that means Linux users are almost twice as generous as Windows users, and remember - half the money goes to charity!
So, please pop over to the Humble Indie Bundle and buy it while you still can.
