Humble Indie Bundle #3 just launched last week Tuesday and in its first day it grossed more than $100,000 USD and before even starting the weekend it raked in more than $650k USD. Now on Monday evening, this collection of multi-platform DRM-free games where you "pay what you want" is approaching the million dollar mark.

As of right now, the Humble Indie Bundle #3 has received $958,245.68 USD worth of payments from over 203,800 purchases. Linux users continue to lead with the highest average price for this collection of physics-oriented games -- Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, Hammerfight, And Yet It Moves.

There's still eight days left to this sale, so surely this bundle will cross the million dollar mark just like the two prior Humble Indie Bundles. It's not yet known if anything special is planned when the milestone is hit -- previously the games have been open-sourced.

For those interested in the third Humble Indie Bundle, visit HumbleBundle.com. We're also running a give-away contest where you can win free copies for you, your family, or friends. Good luck!
