The Humble Bundle Botanicula Debut ended yesterday. Here's some figures from this two-week, pay-what-you-want, cross-platform, DRM-free game bundle sale.

For Botanicula, Machinarium, Samorost 2, Kooky, and Windosill, this debut bundle led to:

- $822,094.69 USD in total payments (not quite as exciting as the more popular bundles that can pull in more than two million dollars or all of the more serious ones that usually rake in at least one million dollars in two weeks).

- 92,547 purchases.

- $8.88 average purchase price.

- Averages per OS: $8.29 Windows, $10.09 Mac OS X, $11.41 Linux.

- $1,000.00 highest contribution.
