The Humble Indie Bundle #4 just crossed the two-million dollar threshold as four days remain to pick-up a collection of multi-platform indie games at whatever price you wish.

On the first day of the Humble Indie Bundle #4 sale it pulled in an impressive one million dollars. More than a week later, the rate of sales has certainly slowed down, but it just crossed the two-million dollar mark (USD).

There's four days left to the two-week sale period. As of publishing there's 281,237 purchases off this $2M USD, which puts the average contribution price at $5.25. The average Windows price is $4.65, Mac OS X gamers at $7.50, and the Linux gamers at $10.34. The largest contribution was $6,500.00.

With the time left and where we're at now, it's possible this Christmas bundle will set an all-time record for being the highest grossing. The current record is Humble Indie Bundle #3 at $2.1M USD. The other popular bundles generally pull in between one and two million dollars during their two-week period while the more obscure bundles usually fall just short of one million bucks.

The Humble Indie Bundle crew has also now thrown in the Humble Indie Bundle #3 games for those who contribute more than the floating ($5) average, which makes the total possible game offering be: NightSky HD, Shank, Super Meat Boy, Bit.Trip Runner, Jamestown, Cave Storage+, Gratuitous Space Battles, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight, plus And Yet It Moves. They also include the soundtracks of the games for those who like the indie game music.

If you want to purchase this large collection of Windows / Linux / Mac OS X games, visit HumbleBundle.com within the next four days.
