    Default Another Single-Game Humble Bundle Deal Launches

    Phoronix: Another Single-Game Humble Bundle Deal Launches

    Another "Humble Indie Bundle" is now available, but like the last bundle, there's only a single game being offered up. At least it's still multi-platform, DRM-free, and goes under a "pay what you want" model. Another catch is that the new game that forms this bundle is still in an "alpha" state...

    Since when do bundles consist of a single item? I don't get it. This is what a "bundle" is:

    i don't get it... why not just ad some opensource games and support the development to make a REAL bundle???

    cubs2 for example they can make a deal to sell cuba2 its also a cube like game with an cube like editor.

    its so simple if you have only 1 game to sell ad an opensource game and make an bundle.

    no this don't hurt this is only a nice service.

    and the people are not pissed by single game bundles.

    Can you read?

    The Humble Voxatron Debut

    There is nothing said about a bundle.

    Just a buy and support a game if you like.

    Default a scam

    this shit ain't "humble" or a "bundle".
    this is just some hacks trying to pull off Minecraft-like sham and getting profit with half-assed effort. only their effort doesn't even have a substance like Minecraft did.

    Looks like they are trying to milk every last penny out of this marketing concept. But LOL at the 'easter egg' you get if you set the amount of money to pay to less than a dollar

    They're experimenting, why not?
    Helping finance a game under development sounds like a decent idea, as long as they have enough to show for it.
    It's still pretty balsy given that the Frozenbyte and Frozen Synapse bundles were the less successful.

    (And yes, only the URL names anything releated to a bundle.)

    The game reminds me of "8 bit pixel warriors" or something like that, on the PS3

    As someone mentioned, open sourcing seems to have fallen out of favor, which is a shame, I'd love a mono-free Spacechem.

    Edit: And the URL.
