Humble Indie Bundle 3 closes down with $2.1 million earned

Wednesday, 10th August 2011 03:53 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The third Humble Indie Bundle has outdone its precursors, bringing home $2,167,676.22 in support of independent developers and charitable industry funds.

372,354 bundles were purchased, with the average user forking out $5.82 for the collection of games, well up from the $5.05 average before a handful of new games were added in.

As usual, Linux users were the most generous, handing over $12.03 on average, with Mac and Windows trailing on $7.72 and $4.89 respectively.

The figures may be a little skewed by a handful of massive donations – Minecraft creator Notch engaged in his usual bidding war, contesting Bitcoin exchange site MtGox for top place. Both paid over $4,000 in the end.

Flying Fox Games raised $3,000 and Jonathan Blow contributed $2,718 on behalf of his new game, The Witness.

I hope you didn’t miss out – although we did warn you! The Humble Bundle will no doubt be back soon with another trove of cross-platform, open source independent games, sold for a good cause.

    Rah! Well done, Team Humble.

    They added an astonishing amount of stuff to this one after the initial batch. How are they ever going to top this for bundle 4?
