The latest Humble Indie Bundle whereby Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux gamers can pay what they want for a collection of cross-platform, DRM-free games is off to a tremendous start. This latest bundle just went live around three hours ago, but it's already pulled in more than $100,000 USD.

This latest Humble Indie Bundle consists of Cryaon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight, plus And Yet It Moves.

As of the time of writing, this bundle has already generated over $118k in sales from over 27k purchases. The average purchase price is $4.22 USD as of right now. The average price Windows gamers are paying is $3.46, the Mac average is up at $5.51, and once again the Linux gamers are contributing the most with an average price of $10.36. Linux gamers continue to be excited to have new games available.

In celebration of the continued success of the Humble Indie Bundle, we will be buying three Phoronix readers a HIB #3 collection. Like earlier contests, to participate do the following:

Follow @Phoronix and @MichaelLarabel on Twitter (if you haven't already done so) and then tweet the following "@Phoronix and @MichaelLarabel are giving away #Linux games http://goo.gl/S4Es4" or anything to that effect with referencing this original posting.

The three participants will be randomly chosen next week. The contest ends next week Wednesday (3 August). Below is the HIB #3 video once again for those interested.

How much do you think this third Humble Bundle will pull in during its two-week sale? The first two bundles pulled in more than one million dollars while the Frozenbyte bundle was just short of one million USD. You can guess in the forums.
