The Hunble Indie Bundle #2 was a huge success. After quickly generating $1M USD in sales over a short period of time and then adding all of the original Humble Indie Bundle #1 games too, the second bundle deal has now ended. This second Humble Indie Bundle took in more than $1.8 million US dollars; $1,822,724.06 to be exact.

While not nearly as much money as successful triple-A commercial game titles, this is a huge success for indie game developers. The $1.8M came in from 232,845 sales. The average Linux user was paying $13.76 USD per game bundle while Windows users came in at just $6.67.

More details can be found at HumbleBundle.com. Based upon the email sign-up to be notified when their next project launches, it looks like there will eventually be a Humble Indie Bundle #3.
