    Starting right now you can pick up Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos, Revenge of the Titans for the Mac, Windows or Linux for exactly whatever the hell you want to pay, and it's for a good cause.

    That's right, Wolfire's pay-what-you-want, donate-to-charity indie gaming bundle returns today with the Humble Indie Bundle 2.

    This year the core games in the bundle are Braid, Machinarium, Osmos, Cortex Command and Revenge of the Titans. The Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play are again the charities Braid and Cortex Command are making their Linux debuts and Revenge of the Titans is officially launching inside the bundle.

    Head on over to HumbleBundle.com, name your price, decide how to split up the proceeds. Wolffire's last HumbleBundle offered Aquaria, Penumbra: Overture, Lugaru, Gish and World of Goo at a pay-what-you-want rate. The bundle raised more than $330,000 for Child's Play and Electronic Frontier Foundation. It also, sadly, proved that some assclowns will pirate anything, even a five-game pack that could be picked up for as little as a $1.

    Another interesting side note, the provides real-time stats, discovering last year that Linux users are about twice as generous as Windows users. Come on Windows, don't let me down this year.

    Alright now sing along with me:

    It's real nice when you name your price for games that are DRM free,
    Cross-platform compatible and you're helping charity!

    Go, buy, give![/p]

    Was I supposed to get an email after hitting the paypal button or something?

    I mean it says you get it instantly, but my page just refreshed with no indication that something actually happened.

    Yes, after they receive the money, you will receive an email.

    I used Google Checkout and got it almost instantly.

    I received an email confirming the paypal donation went through, but no email containing a link to the games yet, and and the page that concluded the order says "Success! Processing order now." then below, "Waiting for Paypal..."

    They are likely getting a ton of traffic at the moment, so it may take a bit.

    This looks pretty awesome, but they didn't say if it was redeemable through Steam! [​IMG]

    Since as of last week you could do it on the last one.

    Anyway, great cause. Hope to buy it.

    When you clicked the paypal link, did it open up the paypal page to pay through?


    When I clicked it, nothing happened. The page just refreshed.


    vvvvvvvvvvvv: Thanks, I guess they just don't want my 10 bux.

    Repeating myself from the other thread:

    Awesome. The first bundle was great and so is this. Hope they make even more money than last time.

    There isn't any redeemable code on the downloads page, but seeing as they did it before, it may become available in the future. (crosses fingers)

    Well, I figured it was a good cause so I paid as much as I could, even though I already own Braid twice over and I'm tapped out thanks to Christmas. Every little helps, right?

    It took a minute or two for my email to arrive, give it a few minutes and you'll have it. Payed with Paypal.

    Can somebody confirm if my pc can run braid, i dont think it can, but people are saying it could:

    WindowsXP
    Intel Celeron
    CPU 3.2GHz
    1gb RAM
    ATI Radeon X1650 PRO

    On the videocard box, this is what it says:

    "X1650 PRO 512mb GDDR2 128-bit"

    It should be able to, but if you're still in doubt there's a demo on Steam you can try.
