The latest Humble Indie Bundle has made a million dollars in just over a week.
Humble Indie Bundle #3 is chugging along nicely. Having made just north of a million dollars thus far and with another week left on the clock it seems set to reach or even exceed the $1.8 million bar set by the Humble Indie Bundle #2.
Humble Indie Bundle #3 lets players pay what they want (as long as it isn't zero dollars) for Crayon Physics Deluxe, VVVVVV, And Yet It Moves, Cogs, Hammerfight, a two week trial of Minecraft and, as announced today, a copy of Steel Storm. According to the Bundle's constantly updated tracker, they've shifted 216,144 bundles thus far, making a grand total of $1,032,521.82. The average purchaser has spent $4.78. The average Mac user has spent $6.60, marginally more than the average Windows user who paid $3.80. It's Linux users, however, that appear the most generous, having spent an average of $11.62.
The purchase which put the bundle over the million mark and also dethroned top contributor and Minecraft developer, Notch, was made by internet currency merchants Bitcoin. They apparently spent $4,096 on the bundle edging out the beloved Minecraft dev by fifty bucks.
