Humble Bundle is moving ahead with a controversial change to its budget format that has put some players at gunpoint. In short, the company will soon raise mandatory sales by 15-30%, but players can still allocate the remaining budget.
From the start, the Humble Bundle has allowed buyers to decide how their payments are distributed to publishers, charities, and Humble itself. But in April, the company quietly began testing the removal of the charity slider. The move angered players and publishers, forcing Humble to back out a month later and bring the slider back to everyone.
In a recent blog post, Humble revealed that it is introducing a new version of Sliders in mid-July. In short, Humble will soon keep between 15 and 30 percent of its revenue. The buyer can divide the remaining funds as desired. Up until this point, buyers had the option of lowering the humility rate to zero.
According to Humble, significant changes to the hardware store's appearance since the launch of software packages in 2010 necessitate the move, "and we must keep going."
"Changing the sliders allows us to continue investing in more engaging content so that we can continue to grow a humble community that ultimately provides more funding for charitable causes. We will also continue to create more payment methods, such as 100 to our charity packages.
