Humble Indie Bundle 3 earns $2.1 million
372,364 users pay an average of $5.82 each, with Linux users the most generous
The third Humble Indie Bundle was the most successful yet, raising a total of $2.16 million.
The initiative allows consumers to make a voluntary donation for a collection of games from independent developers.
They can also choose how that money is divided among the developers and the two associated charities, Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Humble Indie Bundle 3 was the largest so far. It included Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, And Yet It Moves and Hammerfight, with Steel Storm, Atom Zombie Smasher and a limited trial of Minecraft as bonuses.
Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos and Revenge Of The Titans were added to the deal on August 4 for anyone paying above the average donation of $5.82.
A total of 372,364 bundles were sold, with Windows users purchasing a significant majority of that number. However, Windows users also paid the least, contributing $4.89 per transaction on average. Mac users were more generous, paying $7.72, with Linux users out in front with on average of $12.04.
