The second Humble Indie Bundle sale is officially over, and it’s safe to say that it was a success in every conceivable way.
The Humble Indie Bundle 2 has been making headlines for the past few days, for a number of different reasons. It came to Steam. It surpassed the amount of money raised by the previous bundle. The original Bundle was included as a part of the deal. Now, the final amount of money the sale raised has been revealed.
The sale managed to raise $1.8 million. The bundle itself was purchased a total of 232,849 times, and the average price paid was $7.83. Linux users paid the highest amount per purchase, shelling out an average of $13.76. Mac users paid an average of $9.26, Windows users’ average was $6.67. The Bundle’s homepage also tracked the largest purchases and the highest amount paid for it was $6,132.96 (for a while, notch – the guy behind Minecraft – held that spot with his $2,000 purchase).
At the moment, there’s no news on how the money was split up between the various groups involved. When asked about how much money was sent to the EFF, Jeff Rosen of Wolfire stated that the final numbers were still being tallied.
