A new Humble Indie Bundle will launch this morning with the usual criteria: multi-platform, DRM-free games where you pay what you want.

Last month was the Humble Bundle Mojam for games made in a weekend while previous to that was their first Android-focused Humble Bundle, with the titles still being available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

This new bundle for March is the successor to their first Android offering. This new bundle will be introduced as "The Humble Bundle for Android 2" and set to include the following games: Canabalt, Zen Bound 2, Cogs, and Avadon. If contributing more than the floating average price, the Swords & Soldiers game will also be included. Also included for most of the games is the games' soundtracks.
The Humble Bundle for Android #2 features:
* the meditative 3D puzzler, Zen Bound 2;
* the indie parkour platformer, Canabalt;
* the critically acclaimed, steampunk, indie puzzler, Cogs;
* an Android tablet special -- the epic, old-school role-playing game, Avadon: The Black Fortress;
* and for users who pay more than the average price, the vibrant, side-scrolling strategy title, Swords & Soldiers.

While this is another Android-focused bundle, the titles are also available for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X, as usual. Steam keys for these games are provided for those who pay more than $1 USD.

The non-profit foundations that can be optionally supported when paying whatever you want is the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Child's Play.

From the email I got from the Humble Bundle crew this morning, "Users responded very enthusiastically to our first Android promotion earlier this year—to the tune of more than 150,000 purchases—and so we went to great lengths to find must-play games and have them ported to the Android platform. All the games are also new to Linux (except for Cogs, which we had ported to Linux for a previous bundle)."

The Humble Bundle For Android 2 gets started this morning at 10.00 PDT and will last for two weeks. I'm just mentioning all of this now since I'll be out for the day meeting Phoronix readers and other organizations in San Diego. If there are any other Phoronix readers / Phoronix Test Suite users in the San Diego / La Jolla areas and would like a Phoronix meet-up over a beer or anything, let me know prior to Wednesday. This new bundle also shouldn't be much of a surprise if you follow me on Twitter where I already mentioned the bundle and said days ago a bundle would be coming. Those interested in purchasing these games at the name-your-price rate can visit HumbleBundle.com.
