You get:

World of Goo
Aquaria
Gish
Lugaru HD
Penumbra

for any amount you choose.  The only trick is that it's for charity, so guilt may win out over your cheapskate side.  No matter what you pay, it's an excellent deal.

Cant comment on Lugaru HD or Aquaria but the other three are excellent.  I just wish they could be activated on Steam.

Lugaru was that fighting rabbits game that got some mild attention a few years ago.

Aquaria has gotten excellent reviews.  It's a metroidvania game underwater.

The other three I'd also played. Really, it's a fantastic collection. 

I've been waiting for Aquaria at a decent price, so I basically bought this package for that game alone.

I love these bundles but to be honest there's nothing in this one that takes my fancy.  Yes, I'm the only person on the planet who didn't like World of Goo. smile

It didn't click for me until I played it on the Wii.

Did you read all the Sign Painter story bits and play at least till the 2nd world?  It's really the humor and story elements that did it for me.

I was reading the signs, which were amusing yes, but I have no idea which world I stopped at.  It's just not my kind of game really.

interesting promo.  have world of goo and penumbra (not sure if its overture or the other one) and i've played gish at some point.

lugaru looks unusual, but not sure i'd get much out of it.  kind of interesting premise and looks like it has some interesting fight mechanics.

aquaria sounds pretty interesting though.  always like -vania games and never tried an underwater one before.

With the Humble Indie Bundle promotion we've seen that when we treat gamers as real people instead of criminals, they seem to respond in kind. Anyone can get all five DRM-free games for a single penny, and pirate them as much as they want -- we have no way to find out or stop it. However, in just the first two days, we have over 40,000 contributions with an average of $8 each! Would we have seen this much support if the games were console ports that only worked when connected to a secure online DRM server? We'll never know for sure, but somehow I doubt it.

Sold $320000 in 2 days?

Up to $462K  as of 5/7.

Interesting that Windows users are somewhat thriftier with their donations than Mac users.  But check out the Linux users with $13.65 average donation! That's a seriously generous operating system! smile

What are the total number of downloads on each platform? A higher number of downloads can tend to push the average amount downloaded down.

Or it could be that your average Mac user just has more disposable income, which is how they can afford to be your average Mac user.  ZING!

I got an e-mail this morning saying the Samorost 2 has been added to the bundle.  If you've already ordered, it's just added to your list.  They don't even aske you to play extra.
