Hey, that $2,000 comes from the $20 you gave him!  So, it's more like you gave $2,000 to the Humble Indie Bundle.

After hitting $1 million, the Bundle 2 can now be activated on Steam

If you still haven't picked it up, now is a great time.  So lay some money down and give to charity, as well.

Also, I can't help but notice that once again Windows is pulling below average, but I suspect that all the people who are giving $0 aren't really bothering to change from the default Windows settings on the statistics.

Hey, the Bundle heard you liked humble bundles so it added a humble bundle inside your bundle so you can have a bundle while you humble.

That's right, if you somehow missed out on the first Bundle, you can get it along with the second one.

Revenge of the Titans got a huge update a few days ago; you can get it through the download link in your bundle e-mail.

In other news, some douchebag is selling a counterfeit version of Lugaru on the Apple App Store, citing the open source license as an excuse to do so, even though only the code is open, not the art and characters and such. Meanwhile, Apple can't be reached and Wolfire are losing sales to the 80% discounted pirate version.

Never shall a good deed go unpunished, eh?

The good news is there are people who would likely take the case pro bono.  Wonder if he's gotten in touch with the EFF or FSF yet.

ALSO: The comments thread makes my brain hurt.

The counterfeit version has been removed from the app store, though no financial reparations or apologies appear to be forthcoming. Wolfire offers legit version to all buyers of the fake and gives them a bonus Steam key on top of it "for their trouble".

There's the low road, there's the high road, and then there's floating a good ten meters over the high road on a fluffy white cloud of pure class.

It's back.  All games are from Frozenbyte this time around: Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds: Survivor, a preorder for Splot, and an unfinished prototype called Jack Claw.

Holy shit. If you don't have Trine by now you really have no excuse. It's the prettiest game I've ever played in my entire life. (And it's fun too.) With Trine 2 coming up, from where I'm sitting this is an incredibly smart move on Frozenbyte's part.

Heh, my Shadowgrounds FAQ got 371 hits yesterday on GameFAQs alone, and 50 so far today. It usually gets 3 to 5 unless there's a Steam sale going on.

EDIT: And while I'm at it, if you get this bundle, you might want to check out my super underground VIP secrets guide for Survivor. Apparently it's too cool for GameFAQs. (It was rejected for an unspecified reason, but it's actually got developer approval so nuts to SBAllen.)

There's another one.  Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight, and And Yet It Moves.

VVVVVV is pretty fun for a while. I have no idea about the others.

The soundtrack for VVVVVV alone is worth five times whatever you're willing to pay for the whole thing.

I ended up buying into it even though I couldn't really afford it.*  Between the fact that these are really my people and all the shit they kept cramming into the basket, I felt obligated even though I already owned the only game I wanted to play in there and apparently Steam doesn't let you gift the extra copy.

* I always pay slightly more than the average Linux user.

Steam doesn't let you gift the extra copy.

...buuut...aren't the ones from the bundle all DRM-free binaries?

Seems to me you can gift those to anyone you want.

(I haven't bought one since the original, which I paid $50 for, feeling that would make it perfectly okay for me to give copies to a few friends.)

...

...we already have a goddamn Humble Bundle thread, Buge.  You and your damn "3000th post" shenanigans.

Well, not on Steam, but I guess that's splitting hairs.

EDIT: Actually, gift copies are kind of worth something now.  Though I'm not sure how much people are going to barter for a game that could have been bought for a penny on multiple occasions.

Not really a "bundle", though.  It's only Frozen Synapse.
