    The Humble Bundle crew have done it again: that is, to promote a charity fundraising campaign with a pay-what-you-want scheme behind it with gaming attached! Yes, they're up to it once more: this time, with a slightly different approach. The main offer here is Voxatron alpha, which is like the perfect unity between shooters, 3D Dot Game Heroes and Minecraft. I assure you, it's not as bizzare as it sounds.

    Kind donators can also receive more games if they give more than the average purchase (which is at the moment around 4.50 USD!). 2 more games get thrown into the bundle: Blocks That Matter, and The Binding of Isaac. Do make sure to play the latter, since I've had a fantastical experience with it!

    Remember to purchase your bundle soon: only 13 days remain until the fundraiser ends! With nearly 90,000 purchases so far, you cannot go wrong!



    :arrow: Get the bundle here!
    Source? lol, I wrote this myself! :P

    Already bought it. :creep:

    Recommending it! It's very fun for a just a handful of pay-whatever-you-like.
    Also, the editor is a real fun thing to mess around with. My character looks like a freak...

    I'm broke, internet-wise. I don't even have 1 penny in my Paypal account.. Guess I won't be playing Voxatron any time soon...

    Too bad I can't magically convert lunch money into Paypal money w/o a bank account..

    Voxels are fun. This game looks pretty cool. But I have all my money allocated for Skyrim right now.

    Will pick up soon. I'll probably donate about $5, assuming that's still above the average donation. It was still a maybe after I pirated Voxatron (as a try before buy, not as a dirty pirating scumbag who steals from charity) but The Binding of Isaac, made by one of my favorite indie developers Edmund McMillen (I've been following his works since the original Meat Boy on Kongregate), made it an instant WANT. Blocks That Matter certainly sweetens the deal too.

    I think I'll do a 50/50 split. Half to developers half to charity.

    Notch always donates a lot to the Bundles. I'm not a fan of Minecraft or anything but I do appreciate Notch for contributing such large amounts.

    Considering the sort of taxes we have in Sweden, he's a very charitable and kind person. He definitely came off that way when I met him at Burger King, too xD

    The fact that you even saw him at Burger King, given how successful a man he is, should show that. (Unless BK in Germany is tastier than in America)

    Oh, not to alarm you, but I met him here in Stockholm, not too far from his office. It's not the first time I see him, either: his office and my school aren't terribly far away from one another, so I've seen him take the train a few times.
    I don't think too many Swedes recognize him on the streets, to be fair. Then again, it's very Swedish to show tact and be respectful to popular figures like Notch ;)

    Crap, $2,000 dollars.

    Anyways, BK tastes better in any county other than in America and Canada.

    Except the burgers in Sweden are like a third of the size they are in other countries.
    Then again, that explains why Swedish people tend to be healthier :D

    SWEDISH WOMEN FTW!!

    Bought the moment I heard it. I have all bundles except for the first. :) (I started with the third, but because I have a soul and always pay at least $10, I got all the bonus ones too. :3)

    But kwartel, if that's the case, u have the 2nd bundle as well, am i right?

    In that case, u should have the 1st bundle since towards the end, they added the 1st bundle to it as well.

    As for me, i have all of them, except the previous bundle since it's basically a rehash of a previous bundle ...
