There's just twelve hours left to the Humble Indie "Frozenbyte" Bundle #3. This is a collection of games from the Frozenbyte game studio that are multi-platform (Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X), are free of any Digital Rights Management restrictions, and you simply pay whatever you want for the collection of five games.

The five games include Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds: Survivor, Trine, Splot, and Jack Claw. While Frozenbyte already open-sourced the Shadowgrounds game engine and did $500,000 USD in sales within the first two days, they haven't yet broke one million dollars in sales.

The two previous Humble Indie Bundle sales both hit this milestone (HIB #2 was even close to reaching two million dollars), but the pace of sales have slowed down dramatically in recent days. This two-week long sale is ending in just twelve hours and they haven't even passed $900,000 as of this morning.

As of the time of publishing this note, there's been just $889,094.41 in payments received from 177,146 sales. This puts the average purchase price of the bundle at $5.02 USD. The average Windows price is $3.99, the average Mac price has been $6.43, and the average Linux price is up at $11.71.

Those interested in buying this bundle at the last minute can visit HumbleBundle.com.
