In a world where videogames have become more costly, it’s difficult to feed the addiction. Even more so in this economy (though the White House claims the recession is over, I personally have yet to see proof). Capcom did us all a favor (and rightly so) by releasing the pseudo-new SSFIV at a reduced price. The Humble Indie Bundle, as they are called, takes this about seventeen steps further: five games (a combined retail value of about eighty bucks), pay your own price. No, I’m serious.
The titles include World of Goo, Penumbra Overture, Aquaria, Gish, and Lugaru HD. On their website is a funny little jingle to inform you about what they’re doing, and how to pay. But, here’s the skinny: games are for Mac, PC, or Linux. The money you donate can go directly to the developers, or to one of the charities supported by the program. Once you download them, they’re yours, so no silly stuff like needing to have an internet connection to play. And, of course, pay your own price. Only five days left on this offer, though. Shoot, I’m usually a console-based player, but the recognition some of these games have received over the years, combined with the sweet payment deal make me want to check these out.
