        This is one of the reasons that I tend to think they ought to flat-out turn this into patronage (i.e. "once we hit X amount, the games are freeware"). There are issues with that, but there are also issues with the current approach that would go away.

          were open-sourced? public domain? GPL?
          You write so much but say so little.

            Define "buggy as hell"...

              Game engines were GPLed for HIB #1- assets stayed closed for the games.

              Don't know if you'll get the sign-off from as many for this one- the getting HIB #1 is the Humble Bundle gang's gift for this go-round. FOSSing the stuff's up to the studios as it was the last time.

                It's probably worth noting that while most of the games released only the engine code, Lugaru's assets are available in the repo (for noncommercial use only, and derivative works don't seem to be allowed).

                  That's right... I stand partly corrected on that score- the assets are freely available, but still proprietary.

                      Kind of a brown paper bag over the head moment there...

                        It's a nice gesture, but I had already bought the first bundle so this is of no use to me..

                          The Humble Bundle website didn't mention that.

                            Well, actually "buggy as hell" is a bit of an exaggeration and improper in this case (I let my emotions get ahead of me). It's just not playable at this time.

                              Judging from the size of the pie chart the mac:linux:win proportions is: 3:3:7. Multiplying these values with the average fee paid by the users yields this result:


                              mac 24.388
                              linux 38.108
                              win 44.45

                              The linux part is quite impressive imo.

                              (granted the proportions are just estimated)

                                It is possible to select more than one os, did you notice that?
