Humble Indie Bundle 3 launches

Another set of lovely indie games are going cheap--or expensive, if you fancy, as you name the price--in the fourth Humble Indie Bundle, including VVVVVV, Cogs, Hammerfight, and more.

Out of the blue, another stonking 'pay what you want' Humble Indie Bundle launched this morning. The Humble Indie Bundle 3 packs DRM-free versions of VVVVVV, Hammerfight, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, and And Yet It Moves, bristling with new features and coming to new platforms.

As with the three previous splendid Humble Indie Bundles--the original two and the Frozenbyte Bundle--you can pay as much or as little as you please for the bundle of indie loveliness. You also get to choose how your payment is divided up between the developers, charity Child's Play, the EFF, and Humble Indie Bundle organiser Wolfire Games.

The Bundle includes Windows, Mac and Linux versions of all the games, which are new for several and debut here. You can also redeem the games on Steam and Desura, which is awfully handy.

As if that weren't all wonderful enough, new features for several games debut in the Bundle too. VVVVVV scores a level editor and some third-party levels, including one made by Minecraft creator 'Notch.' And Yet It Moves has new achievements and bonus content, plus Hammerfight scores a new survival mode.

Wolfire's Humble Indie Bundle series has proved hugely successful. The first made a touch under $1.3 million, the second raked in over $1.8m, and the Frozenbyte bundle earned a very respectable $909k. Across the three, they've raised over a million dollars for charity.

You only have two weeks to snap up the Humble Indie Bundle 3, so hop to it, head on over to the HIB 3 site to buy video games.

      Awesome, I love the HIB's.. I've gotten all of the games from the previous bundles as well, although sadly I never wind up playing some of them. I'll have to make a point to at least try them all this time around.

      You know what, I think I'll just wait and get practically all my indie titles from the HIBs.

      Does anyone know how to login to get your previous games? I used to have it under my favorites, but after upgrading to Windows 7, I lost my browser data.

      Awesome news! I was hoping VVVVVV would be in a humble bundle pack. I love these indie packs.

      I will vouch for the quality of And Yet It Moves.

      Nice. I already bought VVVVVV when it released back in January 2010, but don't have any of the others. This time, it looks like all of them will get some decent playtime. I've heard Crayon Physics Deluxe and And Yet It Moves mentioned in a good light.

        Any platform with as many users as Windows would have similar results.

      Terry Cavanagh sent out an email to all those who originally bought VVVVVV with download codes of the new version, "a complete rebuild of the game in C++". So, bonus there, for those who already bought VVVVVV on its own, as well as those buying it in Humble Indie Bundle 3.
