Humble Indie Bundle 4 brings you Super Meat Boy and more

Super Meat Boy image

Humble Indie Bundle 4 is now live. As before, gamers are allowed to set their own price and pay what they want for five (or seven) hit indie games. This time around, the bundle includes Jamestown, Bit.Trip Runner, Super Meat boy, Shank, and NightSky. What's more, if you choose to pay more than the current average price, you'll get Cave Story+ and Gratuitous Space Battles as a bonus. That's seven games, valued at around $100 separately.

It's that time again. Time to break out your digital wallet and give to those less fortunate than yourself, and get some great games for your trouble.

As always, proceeds are split among developers, the American Red Cross, and Child's Play. Buyers get to choose just how much of their money goes to developers and how much goes to charity. All games included are DRM free and multiplatform, working natively on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X.

The current average purchase price is $4.55, with Linux users being the most generous, choosing to pay an average of $8.63. The stingiest buyers on average are apparently Windows users, choosing to pay less than half of that: $4.10.

Why not take advantage of the deal? It's for a good cause.

Arguably, Super Meat Boy is the star attraction here. From what I can tell, it's a great game. However, don't discount the value of Jamestown, a scrolling vertical shooter (as I recall) that I remember being quite the thing around the time of its launch. I definitely had my eye on that one. At this kind of discount, Cave Story is also a terrific value, and Gratuitous Space Battles is apparently a great game (Lewis reviewed it here some time back). In fact, the whole bundle pretty much seems to be made of pure win. I snagged the bundle for myself, so maybe someday I'll wind up reviewing some of the contained games. PayPal is accepted and they fit nicely on my list on Steam. Rather quickly, Steam is turning into one of my most populated gaming platforms!

I grabbed this. As I'm unemployed, $15 was realistically the best I could do this time around. Still $10 higher than the average. People are pretty cheap...

Personally, I'll stick with straight-up donations. Partially because I feel that getting anything in return cheapens the entire act of charity, but mostly because all seven of those games put together would hardly be worth ten dollars, let alone fifteen bucks a pop. On that note:

...No. No it most certainly is not.
