    "Humble Introversion Bundle".
    http://www.humblebundle.com/

    Uplink, Darwinia, Defcon, Multiwinia
    This time it includes two tech demos, a procedural city generator (oh bby) and a destructive voxel tech demo.

    As usual nowadays there's a bonus for paying more than the average, Crayon Physics Deluxe and Aquaria.

    i really wish they'd stop adding the more than average things right from the beginning. i miss being able to pay 8 cents for everything then having more added on.

    Paid $8 for this. Totally worth it just for crayon physics.

    they only add old games at the beginning, games that were offered in other indie bundles already
    if you see the bundle go up, buy it asap
    because they will add more games but you have to beat the average to get them, early buyers get them automatically

    Don't be so cheap. It goes (or can go) to charity.

    indieroyale is interesting. i bought their first bundle, passed on the second. i'm definitely curious to see what's in this new one. since their games don't have to be multi-OS like HIB, they get a few more "high-end" indie titles. i bought the first bundle strictly for sanctum. the other games were icing. and the idea is that the games being offered in this next one are big. as in the scope or whatnot. it'll be interesting to see what they come up with.

    They're making good money still but this is honestly kind of ridiculous. They're releasing so many bundles that it makes me really skeptical of buying any and all non-online based Indy games, since they'll likely just appear in a bundle I can pay what I want for them.

    Already got this, again within the first few hours of release :P Also, be sure to watch out for extra games being added later this week (or next week w/e), they're gonna add some more.

    i'm getting more excited for HIB 4, the next "real" humble bundle. i'm hoping it will have minecraft, since i was slow to get on that wagon.

    Minecraft won't be on a Humble Bundle for probably quite some time, and definitely not on the next HIB; it's only just been officially released. It'll probably be in a HB in about 2 years.

    your logic is flawed.

    humble voxatron debut? that was an alpha, and previous bundles like the frozenbyte bundle have included the promise of a game when it's finished. One of the HIBs featured two games in beta, of which only one has seen official release (revenge of the titans, cortex command is going slowly).

    notch has always supported the HIB crew with his sizable donations.

    minecraft has been available since may 2009, and was featured in a previous bundle with a free month of play.

    in the last bundle, the binding of isaac was offered as an extra. that game was two months old at most.

    not to mention that minecraft meets the HIB requirements (windows, mac, linux; notch is the indie dev other indie devs hope to be, etc.)

    i don't see how the fact that it just went "gold" would negatively affect its appearance in a HIB. you're more than welcome to disagree with me as i'm just speculating, but at least attempt to form logical reasons.

    The only reason it haven't appeared in a bundle yet is that Minecraft is already very lucrative

    I doubt it will ever be in a bundle becuase its a cash cow and notch and everybody else knows it

    Because of this:

    HB is great for lesser known / games that are just starting up / devs that want to raise publicity. But Minecraft is already selling millions and would not be a profitable move to enter it into the HB. The fact that it has just been released supports this even more in that even more people are going to buy it. HB would just be a step backwards for Minecraft.
