Humble Bundle V gathers record $5.1 million

When Humble Bundle V launched, the general consensus was that it was one of the best collection of games ever put together. Clearly, many people agreed, making the last collection the most successful Humble Bundle yet.

In the span of two weeks, almost 600,000 people donated an average $8.53 to get games such as LIMBO, Psychonauts, Super Meat Boy, Braid and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. If some donated more than the average, they also got Bastion. The $5.1 million more than doubles the previous record of the $2 million collected each by Humble Bundles 2 and 3.

The bundle started off strong, gathering $1 million in the first five hours of launch.
