Humbie Indie Bundle V Ends

Humble Indie Bundle V has come to a close, and with a bang: not only did they break the $4 million dollar barrier, in the last hours they reached over $5 million! Thanks to all the generous people out there, and to the developers of these amazing games, for making it possible!

And, of course, a big thank you to all of you generous bronies to contributed to the HBB, whether it was money or spreading the word! It's been a rather exciting Bundle, between the endless friendly competition with Notch and the nods from Wil Wheaton, Rock Paper Shotgun, and John Graham of Wolfire games and the Humble Indie Bundle itself. Oh, and a thread on Reddit that sent over 20,000 people to visit the blog, to check to see if I'm Gabe Newell of Valve. Ha! Spoiler: no, I'm not.

But, much more importantly, during the course of Humble Indie Bundle V the HBB surpassed $35k in total lifetime contributions, which is over $20,000 to charity and around $10,000 to indie game developers! I never imagined I'd be part of something like this, and I'm eternally grateful to all of you for making it possible. All of my thanks!

  4. So, are we and Notch involved in the HIB 6? Because I don't see either in the top contributors.

  5. Nevermind Notch, are we getting involved in HIB 6?

    Where will all donations for the past 2 months+ go?
