Hammerfight is a lot of fun if you enjoy that Eastern European "it feels like luck, but it's actually all skill" weirdness. When I first played the game I was so bad at it, but after a few hours it became one of the craziest, most addictive games I've ever played.

I like most of the games in this bundle. And I also love this idea since the first bundle :)
But again I am sad to see how low the average price is going. The first bundle the average price was nice but after that it looks like with the rising popularity more and more greedy people buy it who do not know what it means when the average price is low and who don't know what a work is behind making a game :(

Yup, that's why I've paid quite some amount of money for both bundles, but I I dont have that amount of money for this one anymore :( I can't stand paying, say, only 10 euros for these games so no Humble Indie Bundle 3 for me.

10 euros currently are about 14 dollars... I currently also have no money, so I bought it for 5 euros (don't know what it was in dollars) and when I have the money I still will be able to increase the payment. When you have bought the bundle you have now the option to pay a bonus after testing the games or when you have the money :)
It is a nice feature so you can buy all games for around 5$ and increase it later to the price you think it is worth (for example you can go up to 25$).
Also I think there is a different between buying a game for a bit of money because you can not pay more at the moment and pre ordering 6 Games for 60€ and pay 0.50 for 5 Indiegames and say "lol I can get it so cheap why not take it, its their own fault stupid guys" like one of my friends did and I think most people paying nearly nothing do...

Oh yes I remember something about that paying extra after buying thing from the previous HIB I think (if they already had it back then). I guess that changes things a little ^^

It's pay what you want. Paying 50c is better for them than not getting it.
Just do what you can afford/feel like, and don't worry about what others are doing.

One of the main reasons for the low average, I believe, are the dicks on 4chan buying hundreds of 0.01$ packs and distributing them for recognition.

Although I fully admire the stance they have on price (complete freedom), I really think they should set a minimum cap of about €5.

Doesn't sound like much, but count that by roughly half a million sales and you can see where I'm going.

I don't mean this as "be greedy", I mean don't let the greedy b*stards suck up all the genuine profit on downloading the games. Someone's paying for the file hosting after all, and the possibility of (Like HIB1) 1.8m people downloading the games...

They probably have the numbers worked out (I hope they do), but don't let thousands of greedy people suck you into debt for moral reasons...

Well if it wasn't profitable enough they wouldn't have a 3rd edition of HIB :P And while I like the idea of a minimum price myself, it's still their initiative and if they don't mind a lot of people paying very small amounts of money then that's their choice.

CaptainLagfail Jul 28 2011, 7:45pm replied:

What I meant was there comes a point where a low profit becomes a loss when you take into account all the costs involved. Obviously the numbers were worked out in bulk, as fixed starting costs (hosting, etc). I've no doubt they've already surpassed the threshold at which all new transactions could be considered profit but I think it's still a silly idea to allow the risk of a sale that actually costs you more than you make, especially with this many sales being made (140k so far?)

Besides, about 70% of those who buy the games at 1c would still buy the games at €1 or €2 or possibly even €5. With a minimum in place, people will still buy. They just won't be able to rip off the devs hard work.

PS: A humble donation, not to steal from them by buying it for $0,01. This is sad and for soulless people.

Once again, the humble bundle demonstrates not only the size of the market for linux gamers but also their willingness to spend money on indie games. If you look at the numbers given by the back-end of the chart shown for numbers of purchases according to OS,
(http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?cht=p&chs=122x122&chco=338833|883333|333388&chd=t:0.1783000018777420758462750187,0.6350669537749638085482225090,0.1866330443472941156055024723&chf=bg,s,00000000&chdlp=r)
you can see that linux users (colour 333388) actually made more purchases than Mac users (colour 338833). Needless to say, linux users on average have also paid more than either Windows or Mac users in all of the bundles so far.

I'm very glad to see desura is moving towards client builds for linux - I hope it will be recognised as a viable distribution solution and will help persuade dev teams into making more cross-platform games. With valve and other companies starting to make games for Macs, I wouldn't expect it to be much more difficult/costing to do so for linux as well - OSX being a distant child of UNIX itself. Probably the only thing that veers the industry away from the linux platform is package management and distribution. With Desura there, that shouldn't be much of a problem in the future. Just my 2 cents worth. I hope to see more bundles in the not-too-distant future - they're pretty neat.

Well, I'm absolutely glad I only paid 5 bucks for this, the only games worth it are atom zombie- and VVVV... everything else either really sucks, lacking alot of feature or polish or, well, GAMEPLAY, or is so old that I played it 50 times already.

Sorry but, not even for charity will I pay more for a selection like these.
