The Humble Indie Bundle V
just crossed the line of generating two million US dollars... in one day.
This fifth Humble Indie Bundle is on track to pull in the most amount of money ever from one of these DRM-free, cross-platform, pay-what-you-want game offerings. While two million dollars in one day isn't huge for a studio when launching a new AAA title video game, this is a huge number for indie gaming.
The top grossing bundle to date had made $2.37M USD in fourteen days (Humble Indie Bundle #4). Unless the Humble Bundle servers magically disappear for most of the next two weeks, this fifth bundle is going to easily smash this record.
The two million dollars comes from about 260,000 Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux gamers. The average contribution is at just about $7.69 USD for the set of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Psychonauts, LIMBO, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, and Bastion.
