Gish Joins The Humble Voxatraon Bundle

By Craig Pearson on November 10th, 2011.

Go on! It's for charity!

We’ve once again been dragged into our bitter feud with the game package the Humble Indie Bundle. We’ve already posted about the addition of The Binding Of Isaac and Blocks That Matter to the Voxatron package, and they’ve responded by adding Gish and Lexaloffle minigames to it in a futile attempt to make us look out-of-date. This is like the Cold War all over again. Consider this post RPS’s Cuban Missile Crisis. Your move, Bundle.

Voxabundle Adds Isaac, Blocks That Matter

The Discounting Of Isaac

The devious wee sods. It’s always like this: the Humble Bundle announces its latest pay-what-you-want indie deal, so we duly post about it because the people should know and all that. Then, a few days later, they go and add more games to the bundle, so it seems wise to also post about that. They’ve got us by the short and curlies.

Cripes: Humble Voxatron Making A Ton

By John Walker on October 31st, 2011.

He's a rich little man.

The power of the Humble Bundle is extraordinary. Their latest sale is not a bundle at all, in fact. It’s not even an old game. It’s a brand new game, Voxatron, that as Adam mentioned this afternoon will eventually be properly released for $15. Right now, in the manner of the previous Humble releases, you can pay what you want, giving as much of that to the three charities as you choose. But here’s why I’m posting about it again: This deal has been alive, at the time of posting, for five and a half hours. And has already made over $112,000. I was typing $111,000 but it just ticked over another grand. That’s along with the 22,000 tweets, 196,000 likes on Facebook, 18,000 Google Pluses, and it’s currently sitting at 994 upvotes on Reddit, at the number one spot on the Gaming page, and number 4 overall. These people get some attention.
