Another Single-Game Humble Bundle Deal Launches

Another "Humble Indie Bundle" is now available, but like the last bundle, there's only a single game being offered up. At least it's still multi-platform, DRM-free, and goes under a "pay what you want" model. Another catch is that the new game that forms this bundle is still in an "alpha" state.

It was just one month ago that there was a new Humble Indie Bundle that consisted of just one game, but extra bonus games ended up being added in later on. This last bundle in just over one week had brought in just over one million dollars (USD).

This new deal is called "The Humble Voxatron Deal" with the lone game part of this bundle being in its alpha development stage. Voxatron is still under development and isn't even gold yet, but those who pay what they want to get a copy of the alpha will at least receive ongoing development updates for the engine and content. Many Linux gamers felt let down by the last Humble Indie Bundle, so this time around for getting a single game of alpha quality may be even more upsetting. The game itself also doesn't appear to be too impressive. "Voxatron is an action/adventure game set in a world completely made of tiny cubes that can be blasted to smithereens."

The Humble Voxatron Deal just launched today and it's current average price is a mere $3.22 (the game developer hopes to end up selling this game for $15 USD) and they have managed just over five thousand sales. Those that happen to be interested in Voxatron can visit HumbleBundle.com. Below is the video for this bundle promotion that will last for two weeks.
