beat me to it. Also note the money is being split between the devs and ChildsPlay and EFF

That is very awesome. I picked up a bundle, though I've already previously spent $10 on World of Goo (and LOVE it)

Re: THe Humble Indie Bundle (name your price)

I like the picture that comes up if you choose $0.00.
I'll put up $10 when I get home. More afterward if I end up enjoying the games... but I currently know nothing about any of them.

Yeah, just an FYI: putting up $10 alone for World of Goo is easily worth your money. Therefore, spending that -- with money going to devs and non-profits -- and getting four other games really is a no-brainer decision.

Shame on you for even trying that out.

Well, it convinced me to put something other than that, so their guilt-trip worked on me!

Got that email last night as well. I was surprised and happy that it was available in Steam and they emailed codes.
I downloaded them all except World of Goo. I had that installed already through Games for Windows.

Re: THe Humble Indie Bundle (name your price)

Humble Bundle #2 just went up.

Braid
Cortex Command
Machinarium
Osmos
Revenge of the Titans

They are talking with Valve now to get Steam codes, and are optimistic.

Re: THe Humble Indie Bundle (name your price)

It would be excellent if they managed to get XBLA codes for the titles that are on there (like Braid), but I'll probably buy the set anyway.

Already have Braid for the 360 and Osmosis for PC and iphone. Still, I wanted Machinarium, so what the hell, I gave them a few bucks. Hope the Steam codes come through again.

Cool, free games are always nice. Plus I live to support indie developers.

#2 is now available on Steam. Cortex Command and Revenge of the Titans aren't yet available through Steam, but they will be. Makes sense since neither of them are finished.

Well this was a nice surprise, just got an email from them saying they added Humble Bundle #1 to my account. Very cool.

Re: THe Humble Indie Bundle (name your price)

i just found out about that as well - they have a limited number of steam keys. i think the offer is available to the first ~180k who purchased bundle #2.

Re: THe Humble Indie Bundle (name your price)

It's actually the first 150K first come-first severed. They're really going so far above and beyond what anyone expected from the service. I sort of wish I had paid more for the bundle.
-- But then again, I did pay for Bundle 1 last year and they just gave it to me for free, so I guess we're even.

Re: THe Humble Indie Bundle (name your price)

Well now I feel like a real jerk for paying so little. But I already had 3 of the 5 games from the 2 pack... oh well.

To entice more customers to jump in, they're now offering to include the first bundle if your donation is higher than the "average" donation, which is currently sitting at $7.53.

Re: THe Humble Indie Bundle (name your price)

Just picked it up; have no idea if I'll ever play any of them (other than Braid, which I played on XBL), but it seems like a good cause.

I hope you paid enough to get the first one too, because Aquaria, in the first one, is the best game I've ever played.

Re: THe Humble Indie Bundle (name your price)

I played (and finished) Braid last night. Admittedly, I had to use a walkthrough for just a couple parts, but I was stumped (and it was 2am...)
Beautiful game, though. Not sure what game to play next...

Fozenbyte has put up their own pay what you want Humble Bundle. It comes with an instant Steam Key, which is nice. I went and bought it not realizing I already owned both Shadowground games. It also includes Trine (which I have for the PSN -- it's a pretty great game), a prototype of a new game called Jack Claw and will include Splot once it's done.
