Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle earns $1.1 million

More than 230,000 people pay an average of $4.81 each

The Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle has generated more than $1.1 million in sales.

The bundle included the indie hit Frozen Synapse and puzzle game Space Chem, with the "unique photographic experience" Trauma added for free.

In total, 231,799 bundles were sold, with buyers paying what they saw as a fair amount. The average paid for each bundle was $4.81 each; Windows users paid an average of $4.13 each, Mac users paid $6.96, and Linux users paid $9.41.

Any buyer who paid above the total average also received the Humble FrozenByte Bundle, which included Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds: Survivor, Splot and Jack Claw.

The third Humble Indie Bundle, which closed in August, was the most successful in the history of the initiative, generating $2.16 million from 372,364 sales.

Seems like a viable business model for Indie distribution. CrowdPackage - indies distribute their games as a bundle and we all win or lose together. It seems that the combined efforts in getting the word out and pooled resources might lead to greater opportunity for everyone. The trick would be to stay independent and keep the bundles fresh and of high quality.

I'm trying to get Great Little War Game onto one of these. They're good news for everone - developers and customers alike.

I am still ashamed of the people who pay as little as possible for these games. Adding a bonus for beating the average is possibly the only saving factor for these.

My $10 was well spent and enjoyed. Will mostly like pay more in the future.
