This event will run for a week and the money raised will go towards two charities.

The Humble Indie bundle is a collection of five indie games where you can set your price! Want to buy the whole package (worth $80 retail) for $10, $5, $1, or even a penny? sure, go ahead, you can pay as much or as little as you want.

Some have payed over a hundred for the bundle, but the average is around $7-$8 dollars.

The games:
World of Goo
Aquaria
Gish
Lugaru
Penumbra

I've heard lots of praise for World of Goo and Aquaria but I don't know what Gish and Lugaru are. Penumbra looks like a first person silent hill game.The money raised will go to to two non profit foundations, the EFF and Child's Play.

On EFF,
http://www.eff.org/about
Blending the expertise of lawyers, policy analysts, activists, and technologists, EFF achieves significant victories on behalf of consumers and the general public. EFF fights for freedom primarily in the courts, bringing and defending lawsuits even when that means taking on the US government or large corporations. By mobilizing more than 61,000 concerned citizens through our Action Center, EFF beats back bad legislation. In addition to advising policymakers, EFF educates the press and public.

On Child's Play,
http://www.childsplaycharity.org/index.php
With the help of hospital staff, we've set up gift wish lists full of video games, toys, and movies. You can go to each hospital's list and buy a toy, and that toy will be sent to the hospital. Some of these kids are in pretty bad shape. Imagine being stuck alone in a hospital over the holidays, getting something from a fellow gamer would really raise their spirits. Some of the stuff the hospital will give away for kids to keep, while other gifts (like consoles) will be kept by the hospital for patients to use throughout the year.


It's a really good deal and the money goes to a good cause. Think of them as free games if you only pay a penny for all five, or a steal at five or ten dollars.

Forgot to mention that the games run on Windows, Mac, and for those of you unfortunate sad souls using it, Linux.
