Trine Headlines Third Humble Indie Bundle

| 12 Apr 2011 16:47

The third pay-what-you-want Humble Indie Bundle has become the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle with the inclusion of physics-based platformer Trine.

The first Humble Indie Bundle, a package of five independent games that could be purchased for any price with the proceeds going toward the buyer's choice of developer and/or multiple charities, broke $1 million in sales. The second, featuring five new games, nearly hit $2 million. Those kinds of numbers cemented the bundle as an ongoing project, with a third Humble Indie Bundle now available.

Except this time, it's the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle. It includes five games from studio Frozenbyte, including physics-based platformer Trine. The four other games include top-down shooter Shadowgrounds, its sequel Shadowgrounds: Survivor, Jack Claw, and Splot. Trine, Shadowgrounds, and Shadowgrounds Survivor currently retail for $29.99 on Steam, so getting to pay whatever you want for the trio is already a good deal.

Jack Claw is a prototype of a cancelled game, while Splot is an upcoming title Frozenbyte is currently working on. Jack Claw allows players to "juggle cars around like they were puppies," featuring a main character with a long, wiggly claw that can be used to demolish the environment. Splot looks like a cute... something, with concept art that shows off a one-eyed jelly monster, a monkey with a giant head, and a pirate with an ice-cream cone body. I'm baffled, but intrigued.

To purchase the bundle, head on over to the Humble Indie Bundle website and choose your price. That's right, choose your price. Your donation can be divided between Frozenbyte, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Child's Play, and the Humble Indie Bundle organizers in any capacity you determine. All of the games are DRM free and some can be redeemed on Steam, OnLive, and Desura. It's a no brainer.

Thanks for the tip Arachon!
