Mac And Linux Users Also Buy Games

That was the message from philanthropic pay-what-you-want Humble Indie Bundle post-mortemers Jeffrey Rosen and John Graham, who were speaking at the IGF earlier today. The pair revealed that Mac and Linux accounted for fifty percent of revenue from the bundles, with Linux users being the most generous overall. Was this just because the game-starved Linuxers were so grateful to be included? Maybe, but it’s still an interesting lesson for the indie circuit that these kinds of deals work so well with non-Windows platforms: “We recommend developers support Mac and Linux,” said Rosen, after revealing that the two bundles had, in total, raised $3m, with $1m of that going to charities Child’s Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. (We previously analysed some of the breakdown of this cash-haul here.)

So, Mac and Linux users, do you also read RPS?
