Humble Indie Bundle 6 is now over and it's generated just over two million dollars during the two week DRM-free, pay-what-you-want, cross-platform game sale.

Humble Indie Bundle 6 brought Dustforce, Rochard, Shatter, S.P.A.Z., Torchlight, and Vessel to the humble game collection. In the first four days it generated one million dollars but it took the last ten days to break the two million dollar mark.

Final figures on Humble Indie Bundle 6 come down to $2,048,439.47 USD from 316,266 sales. The average purchase price was $6.48. When the average purchase price is broken down by platform, it comes down to $5.82 for Windows, $7.58 for Mac OS X, and $10.48 for Linux. The top contributor this time around was Minecraft's "Notch" who put forth $10,000 USD for one copy of the game bundle.
