I'm sure most of our gaming readers know what the HumbleBundle is, but I'll provide a brief explanation for the uninitiated. Users are able to buy the bundle of games for whatever price they'd like and select how it is distributed among charity, the developers, or the provider of HumbleBundles.
The latest HumbleBundle provides five games for any price: Little Inferno, Awesomenauts, Capsized, Thomas Was Alone, and Dear Esther. If you beat the average price--currently at $5.58 and only going up--you'll get two additional games for free: Hotline Miami and Proteus. Individually, the games would cost over $90.
Some interesting statistics so far:
- Total payments: $181,405.44
- Number of purchases: 32,528
- Average purchase: $5.58
- Average Windows: $5.10
- Average Mac: $6.76
- Average Linux: $8.81
I always love how the Linux users are usually the most generous, especially considering they are using a free operating system. Mac users are usually in the middle and Windows users are almost always the cheapest. Maybe they don't have any money left from buying the license key?
