The lights are on
Deep Silver isn't the first publisher to partner with the fine folks at Humble Bundle, but they are doing it in grand style. Now, through mid-day on August 13, you can pay what you want for a big chunk of the publisher's back catalog.
For anyone interested in participating, the bundle includes Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third, Risen 2: Dark Waters, and Sacred 2 Gold. Soundtracks for the two Saints Row titles and Risen 2 are also included.
Paying more than the average gets you Dead Island Game of the Year Edition and Saints Row: The Third The Full Package (all of the DLC). $25 gets you Dead Island Riptide and that game's soundtrack.
Payouts can be split four ways amongst Deep Silver, the American Red Cross, Child's Play, and the Humble Bundle operations fund. Please note that if you already own one of the games in the bundle, you will not get an extra version to gift. This is for charity, after all. You can however, gift the entire purchase.
Check out the Humble Bundle on the official site.
Our TakeDeep Silver isn't the first publisher to use the Humble Bundle. When THQ did it before their collapse, it brought in over $5 million, a lot of which went to charity. Even if you don't like the idea of a publisher using the Humble Bundle, you can still pick up a lot of great games and support charity.

Oh this is good, I missed a few of these games during the steam summer sale.
Sacred 2 alone is worth that price, imo.. Great package of games for those who don't have them
Very cool deal. I bought it even though I already owned a few.... ;)
ima do the 25, although my computer sucks ima keep them in my library so when i upgrade it i have em, caint beat the deal
I already have the games on here that I care about, but I guess it's still good to donate.
Thanks for the article!! I never knew about these guys! I love giving to charity, helping those in need. I also love helping support devs which is why I've never ripped/pirated a game. Now I can give to good causes, feel good knowing I did a good dead, AND expand upon that good feeling with games? Hell yea!
I would totally snatch this bundle up if I hadn't already bought myself a new phone this week.
I don't own or have played any of these games so $5 bucks and a good cause got my order. I would much rather play on console but can't resist the price point.
Now that they own the IP, I wish Deep Silver would fix Sacred 2 on the Xbox 360. None of the co op features work and that severely dampens the play value.
