Humble Indie Bundle #2 Tops $1.3M, Adds More Titles
Phoronix: Humble Indie Bundle #2 Tops $1.3M, Adds More Titles
Over the weekend the Humble Indie Bundle #2 topped one million US dollars and the money has kept flowing in since. The expiration of the Humble Indie Bundle #2 was also extended by a few days and now the Humble Indie Bundle #2 has surpassed $1.3M USD, which is more than the original Humble Indie Bundle had generated. All of the original Humble Indie Bundle #1 games have also now been added to the second bundle...
Depends how much you pay. If you have the first bundle, don't bother paying above average. If you do pay above average, it's your choice. And if you don't have the first bundle, they are simply setting a price for it.
I have feared that some of these sudden bonuses could be seen as unfair by some people. Unexpectedly extending the deadline all the time could make it seem meaningless. Fortunately people have been gracious enough to remain positive about what is, whichever way you look at it, a great deal.
And this also overlooks a (rather irrelevant) technicality that it also means you are now entitled to two copies of the bundle 1 games... So that copy of World of Goo I installed on someones laptop at work to keep their kid happy...
I was sorely tempted this time around to decide how much I was willing to pay, and simply pay it in a series of $1 donations
I think it is more important to reach more people than to raise the average price. I would not depend how much somebody payed, because if you don't want to pay it is not that hard to get the links anyway. But there should be a positive effect when you do.
Yeah, this bothers me because it reinforces the fact that they're still thinking in terms of selling copies. Average contribution shouldn't matter in itself because the defining feature of the bundle is that there is no fixed price per copy.
