Organized at irregular intervals, and just the third time the people of Wolfire Games a project that PC games from the independent sector bundles, which can be purchased at self-selected price. (A portion of the amount, the amount you can also define themselves, goes to charity.) All included games are free of DRM restrictions, and run on Windows, Linux and MacOS X. The whole thing is then called "Humble Indie Bundle 3" and deserves a closer look. In addition, ever anticipated: Today there is something to win!

Humble Indie Bundle 3

In the current bundle, there are some real jewels. Alone Crayon Physics Deluxe it really worth it already: The game is about to solve Rube Goldberg-style puzzles by painting objects with crayons in the world. The aesthetics are incredibly well managed and the learning curve is both appropriate for children, but leaves much room on the other hand, for optimization. VVVVVV is a bit more for hardcore gamers of the old school, a lo-fi arcade-style action adventure with a twist: Instead of jumping, the character direction reverse gravity and switch between the floor and ceiling, hampered by the spines and other typical pitfalls. Another must is And Yet It Moves, another game in which the gravitational force can be influenced but that is implemented in a completely different way, especially aesthetically. The other two games in the current bundle, Cogs and Hammer Fight, I Unfortunately due to time constraints have not played yet.

As if that were not enough, the makers of the bundle over the last few days even without reloading the end of bonus content: Each buyer will also receive the game Steel Storm for free. Who provides the purchase of the current average bid, which also receives five games of the second Humble Indie Bundle, including Braid and Machinarium, both games that you should not miss under any circumstances. On top is a time to 14 August temporary access to the full version of Minecraft.
