The lights are on
For a small price, you can help charity and get some of the best recent indie games like Trine 2, Mark of the Ninja, and Fez.
Humble Bundle 9 is currently on sale. Proceeds from all sales to to charities Child's Play, Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Watsi. You can name your price for DRM-free versions of Trine 2: Complete Story, Mark of the Ninja, Eets Munchies, and DoubleFine's Brutal Legend. However, if you pay more than the average donation (which is currently a paltry $3.82) you unlock two more excellent games: FTL: Faster Than Light and Fez.
You also receive the soundtracks for Trine 2 and Brutal Legend, as well as the FTL and Fez soundtracks if you donate above the average.
The games are DRM free for Windows, Mac, and Linux. You can also access them through Steam as long as your purchase is for $1 or more (but honestly, how much of a cheapskate could you possibly be?).
Our Take:The Humble Bundle is pretty much the best thing going in the game industry. Gamers get great deals on great games, indie developers see more sales, and a big cut goes to charity. It's a win all around.

Finally, drm free Trine 2.
This sort of thing makes me happy. Mark of the Ninja got great reviews and I believe best downloadable game last yr from GI. FEZ is a barrel of joy rolled up to your doorstep that no one should miss. It's somehow childlike easy and math nerd tough at the sametime. I don't get it but it's adorable and for $4 c'mon.
Donated to the Humble Bundle. There wasn't a lot of games I would want but I'm sure a friend of mine would plus I did my good deed. :)
I bought three!
Humble bundle, you've done it again <3
FTL is amazing - I hadn't played it before this, but I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys strategy games. Or space. Or Rockmen.
I would have bought it for the soundtracks alone, but the obvious addition of the games makes this a winner, especially since they finally released a Mac version of all of these.
Long live Humble Bundle!!! I've got to give 10% of my income to charity, so why not do it through them?
