The Humble Bundle is one of the best deals in gaming, and a great way to support developers and charity! Today, the latest Humble Weekly Sale was announced and it’s another great line-up of games at a great price. The latest Humble Weekly Sale is a collection of 9 great games for a low price. If that’s not enough for you, this bundle includes the Multimedia Fusion game and app creation software. Grab it here!
You can name your price for Multimedia Fusion 2 and nine awesome DRM-Free games for Windows with select games also available on Mac (MANOS: The Hands of Fate is also available on Android). If you spend $6 or more, you’ll also get Knytt Underground, Really Big Sky, and Night Sky (also available for Android)!
We’re big fans of the Humble Bundle here at IntoMobile. Since its first offering back in 2010, the Humble Bundle has provided a model for crowdfunding that’s a win for everyone involved. The consumer gets a great deal on a selection of games, the game creators are compensated directly, and charities such as Child’s Play get funding. Also, you can choose how much of your donation goes to each, as well as the “Humble Tip” which funds the continued work of the Humble Bundle folks with convenient sliders.
It’s worth pointing out that most of the games in this bundle are Windows only and you’ll need a Steam membership since purchasing the bundle will net you Steam keys for the downloads. The icons over the games on the page indicate what platforms they’ll work on.
For more information about the games and the Multimedia Fusion 2 software, the announcement follows below:
