The Humble Store Is Open

There has been a disturbance in the force! Millions of PC Gamers bank managers have cried out in panic! Humble has launched ‘Humble Store’. Usually something of this magnitude only happens when Steam has their Holiday sale but now Humble has became a greater force than it once was.

In recent years the guys at Humble have just grown and grown with each bundle they release and now with Weekly Sales its gotten better and everyone thought how could this get better … well now it has with the Humble Store. Granted the Humble Store isn’t really a new thing, a lot of small time indie devs have been using Humble Store to release their games, usually this allows the buyer a great bargain due to getting a Steam key if their game is on Valves Steam marketplace and a DRM free version of the game, which is great! I’ll be the first one to admit I love Steam but sometimes I just don’t want it on my system, especially my wee laptop that doesn’t have a lot of memory so I generally like good old fashion game installers without the need of a middle man like Steam of EA’s Origin. So its great to see Humble and the amazing guys at GoG.com still distribution games in the old fashion way.

Lets remember the key thing about Humble though, the charity! Humble Store isn’t just created to give gamers another source of great deals, but allows you as the gamer to give something back to charity so you can feel all nice and fuzzy inside. At the moment the  spread of a sale goes like this:

  • 75% goes to the game’s creators
  • 15% goes to Humbles admin fees
  • 10% goes to charity (American Red Cross, Child’s Play, Electronic Frontier, World Land Trust & Charity Water)

The sales will change daily, and at the time of writing Humble has already made $91k for charity on day 1 and there still 7 hours to go. So why not check out The Humble Store and pick up a bargain, with Don’t Starve, Orcs Must Die 2 and my personal favorites Prison Architect and Gunpoint.

    love how people are moaning they are only giving 10% to charity, just so we are clean Steam, PSN, XBLA and such give 0% of your purchase to charity, every item sold in Humble store will be 10% to charity, allows them to grow the business and give more to charity in the long run
