I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Humble Indie Bundle 2 Brings in $1.8 Million

Posted on Monday, December 27 @ 13:30:00 Eastern by
Sorry to say, but if you didn't plop down your self-named price on the Humble Indie Bundle 2, you're too late. You even missed out on the original HIB which was tossed in to the package about half way through.

The good news is that Bundle can officially be called a success. There was a total of 232,849 individual purchases of the bundle, with an average price of $7.83.

Breaking that down by platform reveals that Linux users are the most generous and Windows users are the most stingy, separated by an average of about $7. Mac users landed around the middle with an average price at $9.86.

While purchasers could decide what their chosen-price would go to, be it Electronic Frontier Foundation or Child's Play Charity. Of course, they could also put the money in the developer's pocket or the organizer's. With that much money coming in, I'm sure the Humble Indie Bundle has plenty for charities and themselves. More specific details will be available later.

If you're interested in the top donators, those numbers can also be found above. You'll notice (Minecraft developer) Notch's sizeable donation and OnLive's creative advertising.

I missed out on both packages, mostly due to laziness... I have enough games to play. If you did pick up the bundle, brag about your generosity or thrift in the comments below.
