  1. The clever independent developers behind the first two Humble Indie Bundles have just kicked off a third charity drive focused on Frozenbyte, the Finnish team behind Trine. As with previous bundles, the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle contains five DRM-free casual games, including Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds: Survivor, Splot and Jack Claw. However, it's worth noting that only Trine and the two Shadowgrounds titles are ready for action on Windows, Mac and Linux.

    "44,000 people have donated over $228,000"!?!?

    That's over $10 billion!

    :p

    Where does it say EACH have donated that? It means all together.

    I'm inclined to try Trine =)

    I only popped down 5 bucks due to my impecuniousness. But using the slider to allocate the percentages was tough, reminded me of Hearts of Iron 2. The games weren't that much of an incentive, but I liked what Child's Play was about.

    "The top donation is $1,024."

    top donation was a linux user, he's just happy he can do something other than surf the web and run servers.

    I can vouch for Trine, awesome game. And the graphics will amaze you.

    I'm definitely in for one of these bundles. I've been wanting to get Trine for a while and have missed out on other deals. I guess patience pays off! Now, I get 4 games and some source code to poke around in!

    I already have Shadowgrounds, and I'm sure I won't get to play any of these games soon, but I tend to shell a few bucks for these bundles anyway, just because they're multi-platform, DRM-less, and provide an opportunity to donate part of the money. Haven't really paid much this time, though. I've pretty much stopped playing games in recent months.

    Very nice, I haven't had the opportunity to play Trine yet and this looks like a perfect time to give it a go.
