The Humble Indie Bundle 2 Teased as Original Bundle Scores Steam Activation

The fantastic 'pay what you want' Humble Indie Bundle which was ran in May is due a festive sequel, organiser and indie developer Wolfire Games has teased.

The Humble Indie Bundle offered DRM-free versions of indie games World of Goo, Gish, Aquaria, Lugaru HD, Samorost 2 and Penumbra Overture for whatever you fancied paying, be it a thousand dollars or ten cents. You didn't pay ten cents, did you?

The initial week-long run raked in $1,112,815, of which $344,450 was donated to the Electronic Frontier Foundation and charity Child's Play. With an extension, it hit $1,273,613 from 138,813 sales, averaging out at $9.18.

There's a perk for purchasers of the original bundle too, as Wolfire has announced that you can now activate all the games on Steam. Simply plug your Bundle key into Steam to add the games to your Steam account. If you've lost your key, recover it here.

The Humble Indie Bundle 2 is still somewhat of a mystery, though Wolfire notes that it's "just in time for the holidays..." and details are promised "soon."

    I didn't expect to be able to activate it on Steam, I was surprised when I got the mail. Thanks!

    Also, for some reason Penumbra was activated as well but doesn't show up on my games list and I can't play it. The store page however says I own it, and its on my profile too. When I click the "play now" on the store page, nothing happens. Did this happen to anyone else?
