With still twelve hours to go in the two-week sale of a collection of DRM-free multi-platform games, the third Humble Indie Bundle has pulled in more than two million US dollars. As of right now, the gross amount is $2,038,931.51 from 351,251 transactions, which is a new record for the project.

The original Humble Indie Bundle pulled in more around $1.3M USD during its week-long sale, the second bundle did $1.8M USD during a ten-day sale, and the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle was just shy of $1.0M during its two-week sale. Doing over $2M USD is a new record for gross amount achieved. With still a half-day left before the sale expires, it's possible HIB #3 will still hit $2.1M or even $2.2M USD. (i.e. For those that didn't win our contest, there's just a few hours left to place in your orders.)

The Humble Indie Bundle #3 games include Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight, And Yet It Moves. Added as a bonus is all of the Humble Indie Bundle #2 games too, for those that contribute more than the floating average price (right now that's just shy of $6 USD).

The Humble Indie Bundle #2 games were Braid, Cortex Command, Macinarium, Osmos, and Revenge of the Titans. Added as an additional bonus to all customers is also Steel Storm and Atom Zombie Smasher, two more indie games for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

Ported to Linux and open-sourced as part of this humble bundle effort was the HGE game engine.

For those wishing to purchase this large bundle of games, visit HumbleBundle.com. Lastly, below is their trailer for this bundle.
