The Humble Bundle concept has been a sensation in the world of gaming over the last couple years, letting gamers purchase a handful of DRM-free games for PC, Mac, or Linux while paying any amount, and choosing how that money is distributed between the developers, various charities, and the Humble Bundle company itself. And like the earlier ones, the Humble Indie Bundle 7 seems too good to be true, but it's fully legitimate and ready to purchase.
Humble Indie Bundle 7 includes violent roguelike The Binding of Isaac (with the Wrath of the Lamb downloadable content), creative platform-action game Snapshot, monochromatic puzzle-platformer Closure, gory hack-and-slasher Shank 2, and a digital copy of Indie Game: The Movie, the brilliant documentary film that details the rise of independent game development in recent years. And if you pay more than the average amount (currently $6.41), you'll also get Dungeon Defenders (with DLC) and Legend of Grimrock in the bundle. Oh, and six full soundtracks.
As usual, you can name your price and split where the cash goes, with the Child's Play Charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation benefitting from this bundle. More than 295,000 bundles have been sold as of this writing, with $1.89 million total spent to date. However, the bundle won't be around forever: It's slated to end in just under a week, on January 2.
If you have any interest in any part of this bundle, do not hesitate to drop the coin as soon as possible. And be generous -- it's supporting indie developers, sick children, and digital civil liberties, not to mention the possibility of even more incredible deals like this.
