Humble Bundle the video game distributor known for selling 100% DRM free indie games has its most recent deal launched on 19th April 2012 which is a group of three games by Amanita Design, viz. Botanicula, Samorost 2 and Machinarium having their respective soundtracks. As per Humble Bundle, the newest launch, Botanicula makes the players to take on the role of a diverse band of tree creatures which try to protect their home from parasitic intruders.
Humble Bundle has been quite active in the field of charity since its beginning in 2010. This website has forever used a pay-what-you-want form of payment and always supports plenty of diverse charities, some of which are Child’s Play, American Red Cross and the Electric Frontier Foundation.
The beneficiary organization of the latest deal, Botanicula, is the World Land Trust. It is an English-based charity founded in 1989 and has helped save the planet’s most endangered habitats. World Land Trust and its overseas partners have by now been successful in purchasing and preserving more than 50,000 acres of land, which is now preserved as permanent wildlife reserves.
Keeping with the indie tradition of Humble Bundle the gamers can choose the amount to pay, and also how the amount should be divided between Humble Bundle, the developers and World Land Trust. The tracking widgets on the site of Humble Bundle have tracked 56,000 gamers who have purchased the deal, thus protecting nearly 900 acres of land.
The Botanicula bundle is accessible with all platforms, viz. Mac, Linux and Windows. Moreover those fans who will pay more than the present average for the package of games will also obtain a download of Kooky, which is a feature-length animated movie directed by Czech director, Jan Sverak, a story of a teddy bear who is trying to return home, and also an extra click puzzle game named Windosill developed by Vector Park.
The deal by Humble Bundle is going to expire on 2nd May at 7 pm, so you will have to hurry up if you want to do something for our earth, in addition to amuse your kids.
