Get Great Games and Pay What You Want
Where can you download a bundle of games and choose how much to pay for them? How could a company offering such a deal make any money?
Well, the folks who make "The Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle" have collected over a million dollars so far and served up almost a quarter million copies to consumers.
The game bundle consists of six fully developed games that run on Windows, Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6+) and Linux. These include Frozen Synapse, TRAUMA, SpaceChem, Trine, Shadowgrounds, and Shadowgrounds: Survivor. Also included in the bundle is the yet-to-be-released 'Splot' and discontinued Frozenbyte.
Who is buying these games? The website dynamically updates the stats and, at the time of this writing, although the majority of payments are from Windows users, they choose to pay the least, at an average of $4.12 each.
Contrary to the myth that you can't make money selling software to Linux users, they choose to pay the most. Fully double the amount Windows users cough up at $9.25 per copy. Mac users are splitting the difference at $6.66 each.
You can direct a portion of your payment to go to charities or the game developers, and decide how much goes to each.
Choose to support 'Childs Play', a gamers group which donates money, toys, games and books to Children's' Hospitals all over the US.
You can support the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) with your purchase. The EFF stands up for consumer rights, free speech, privacy and innovation in the digital age.
