Interview: Humble Bundles Raise $50 Million For Charity

By Duncan Geere on December 16th, 2014.

Humble Bundles have helped raise $50 million for charity since the service’s launch in 2010. That’s a staggering amount of money, raised by people who love games, through a system that let’s people pay what they want. The money has gone to over 25 different charities, to help fund healthcare, bring food and water to those in need, and to help those with disabilities play games – among many, many others.

To mark the occasion, we asked Duncan Geere to have a chat with co-founder John Graham about the charity efforts, what he thinks of Steam curators, and why the future of digital distribution is colosseum deathmatches.

We Are Saleing: Humble Store ‘Winter’ Sale Now On

By Alice O'Connor on December 11th, 2014.

LOOK AT ALL THIS SNOW.

Look, Humble. I’m concerned. You’re a decent, polite store and I dig what you do, yet I notice you’re following that ruffian GOG into seasonal anarchy. I know, I know, they seemed so pleasant but look where you both are now: ignoring the supreme power of the Sun and launching ‘Winter Sales’ even though the winter solstice isn’t for another ten days. Did you even think about how that makes the Sun feel? I don’t care how great your discounts are – and wow okay some are great – this is just plain rude.

Humble Jumbo Bundle 2 Now More Jumbo, Adds 3 Games

By Graham Smith on August 27th, 2014.

Last week we wrote about the Humble Jumbo Bundle 2, because it was the best haul of games we’d seen in a Humble Bundle in a little while. Now that bundle has expanded as planned, and the three new games added are all good too. Pay more than the average of $6.62/£4 and you’ll now receive Legend of Grimrock, PixelJunk Eden and Orcs Must Die! 2.

This on top of a bundle which already included Galactic Civilizations 2, Terraria, Crusader Kings 2 and more.

Penny For Your BioShocks: The Humble 2K Bundle Is A Steal

By Nathan Grayson on July 9th, 2014.

Rarely do I effusively recommend a bundle made up entirely of games I already own, but it’s kinda hard to argue with every BioShock, Spec Ops: The Line, Mafia II, The Darkness II, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown, among others. The Humble 2K Bundle does come with a slight catch (a flat rate of $20 if you want a couple of the more recent games), but even then it’s a formidable deal. Unfortunately, this will technically count as purchasing The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, but don’t worry: I won’t tell anyone.

Steam Who? – Humble Bundle’s Spring Sale

By Nathan Grayson on May 7th, 2014.

Is there going to be a spring Steam sale? Or has Valve finally elected to give its wearied money counters – their abacuses gnarled and gnawed on, fear and desperation write large on waxen wood – a brief respite? I’m not entirely sure it matters now, though, as Humble has elected to fire the first shot with a sale of its own, and it’s off to a damn impressive start. Check it out for deep discounts on games like South Park: The Stick of Truth, Batman: Arkham Origins, Broken Age, Shadowrun: Dragonfall, and Thief. Tons more below.

Arcen Anounce Bionic Dues, Do Humble Bundle

By Jim Rossignol on September 6th, 2013.


Actually they announced it a while back, but I somehow missed it. Today’s announcement includes a whole bunch of intriguing information, as well the first in-game screenshots. Chris Park describes the game as a “tactical roguelike” and explains that “you play as one of six characters, and you remotely pilot any combination of four Exos pulled from six classes: Assault, Sniper, Science, Siege, Tank, and Brawler,” and have to survive in a future city taken over by violent robots.

It’s inbound for October, or somewhere around there. But there’s more: all their games to date are in a weekly bundle over on Humble! Extraordinary scenes.
