The Humble Store – ultra cheap games for pleasure and charity

thehumblestore

We’ve featured the Humble crew before several times, mostly because they keep offering amazing ‘pay what you can afford’ deals on games and ebooks, with a proportion of the proceeds going to charity, but now they’ve gone one step further and introduced what could be the bestest online retail store ever.

The Humble Store offers a range of time limited computer games which again provide a split revenue stream to charities, the developer and the team themselves. The idea is to offer more games than can fit into a traditional Humble Bundle, but still retain the charitable element which makes the original bundles so popular.

The games are available for Android, PC, Mac and Linux, and the prices range from $4.99 up to around $14.99, but the key thing is these are titles which would normally sell for $25.00 and upwards. So it’s a great deal all round. The developer gets 75% of the proceeds, charity gets 10% and the Humble team gets a 15% tip, which no doubt will go towards building out the site. Great idea, lovely execution.

You’ll have to forgive us, we’ve just gone and bought EuroTruck Simulator 2 for $6.25 (retail value $26.95) and we’re off to Amsterdam with a shipment of paper for delivery by tomorrow. Awesome.
