Cripes: Humble Voxatron Making A Ton

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.

That’s 31,834 purchases to get there. Wait, I mean 31,860 to get it to the $113,000 it’s made so far. 31,913. And what is Voxatron? That’s the craziest thing – most people didn’t really know until five hours ago. We’ve been mentioning the game since January, because it looks tops. And now, now (after I was distracted by a bee) it’s made $115,311 after 32,510 purchases.

It’s also worth noting that when you pay for it, you get all future updates and extras for the game, for free, until the day you die.

$115,827…

And there are fourteen days to go.
