Humble's 'Freedom Bundle' generates over $2m for pro-immigration in less than a day

Humble to donate an additional $300,000

The games industry's continued opposition to President Trump's immigration policy has seen more than $2m raised on Humble Bundle in less than a day.

The charity PC retailer is donating all proceeds from the Humble Freedom Bundle to pro-immigration charities including American Civil Liberties Union, the International Rescue Committee, and Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). In addition, the firm said it would double the amount raised up to the sum of $300,000, so you can add that onto the total.

It's unusual for 100% of the money raised by Humble Bundles to go to charities, with both publishers and Humble usually taking a cut. It suggest that all developers involved in this initiative is forgoing their slice of the money.

Games offered up in the deal includes The Witness, Stardew Valley, Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Nuclear Throne, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Invisible, Inc., Super Meat Boy, World of Goo, Mushroom 11, The Stanley Parable, Super Hexagon, VVVVVV, Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, The Swapper, Human Resource Machine, Mini Metro, Song of the Deep, Hot Tin Roof: The Cat That Wore A Fedora and a whole host more (plus others to be added).

There are $600 worth of games, the site says, that are available for $30.

There has been mass industry opposition to the new President's immigration policy, including from Insomniac, Zynga, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Blizzard, Devolver Digital, Harmonix, Global Game Jam, GDC,, Unity and a lot more.
