The Humble Indie Bundle: open source extension

May 11th, 2010 by Marv

The Humble Indie Bundle has collected $1,049,158, where $324,959 (30.97%) goes to Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play Charity. A breakdown including credit card fees can be found here as I am sure people will want to see the figures for themselves. An amazing effort on their part and a big thanks to them from us here at LinuxGames.

Based on the tweet from SteveSwink, the following games will release their source code: Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD, and Penumbra Overture. This will be a “free as in ‘free speech’, not as in ‘free beer’ release” for the open source community as they breached the one million dollar mark. Currently the Lugaru engine source code is available now under GPL with the rest to follow shortly.

    Already had Penumbra and WoG, so a $30 for 3 DRM free ‘just play’ games + bonus was well worth it. Now finding the time to actually play them will be much harder…

    Great, now I will be able to translate those games for friends and family.

    Also, yeah, my time to play games has dwindled considerably – as well as news posting time. Sorry to everyone, I’ll try and be better in the future.
