Third Humble Bundle Arrives, 'Frozenbyte' Edition 195

supersloshy writes "The team behind last December's successful Humble Indie Bundle 2 (as well as the original Bundle of course) have launched yet another bundle, but this time it's comprised entirely of games by developer Frozenbyte, including Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds: Survivor, a pre-order of Splot, and the prototype Jack Claw (with source code). All games (except Jack Claw) are, as always, available for Windows, Mac, and Linux-based operating systems and are DRM-free."

    I got trine some time after it came out and felt it was an excellent game. The puzzles were neat, the game play was smoother than most triple-A games I own and it was a damn site more fun. Also I loved the visual feel of Trine, it was pretty, whilst retaining it's own charm. I would recommend this as a reason alone to get the bundle. Also I can't wait for Trine2, I love those sorts of physics puzzle games.

    I don't have the time to play the bigs games I want to play right now (Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age 2) and I still haven't played most of the games from the first two bundles. But I'm still buying this just on principle.

    Well, as the links in the article pointed out, "World of Goo" made the Top 10 Sales list [] in spite of (or perhaps because of) the 90% piracy rate. They got emails from people who bought the game after trying it pirated, and I'm sure there were others who did the same but didn't bother to fess up to the pirating.

    World of Goo being DRM free was an experiment, and it turned into one of their best sellers, even if it was also heavily copied. It may seem a bitter trade, but pirates are also publicity. I got World of Goo with the last bundle. Would I have purchased it separately? No, probably not. It was fun, but not terribly compelling.

    Brighter Minds [] might have gone bankrupt (due to their other business ventures) in spite of the success of World of Goo, not because of the piracy.

    I missed the previous two bundles, but I would still like to buy them. Does anyone know if they are still available? I purchased this one, and hoped there will be a link to older ones, but no.

As of next Tuesday, C will be flushed in favor of COBOL. Please update your programs.
