Big Picture: The Humble Bundle announced this week that it has raised more than $200 million for its various charitable partners since the idea was first floated over a decade ago. Here we are hoping to get the next 200 million dollars faster.
The first "Modest Program" was launched in 2010 and allowed players to set their own prices for a range of independently developed games and any amount of desired purchase. Allocate to charities. The first attempt attracted more than 130,000 people, and led founder Jeff Rosen to launch the second indie software package, Humble Indie. Razp and fellow Wolfire Games, John Graham, quickly realized the potential of what was happening and turned around. Execute your project in a separate project that has existed since then.
But in 2017, things changed when Ziff Davis, a subsidiary of IGN Entertainment, purchased the Humble Bundle for an unknown amount. After a few years, both Rosen and Graham left. The company said the change was necessary due to the evolving landscape of PC display. “The update allows us to offer great prices on great games, books and software, while supporting any major charitable purchases,” Hempel said last July.
At this $200 million milestone, Hempel thanked the community for what they've done so far and said they look forward to the upcoming $200 million donation to global and local charities. p> < A quick review of Humble's site reveals several software bundles in progress, including the Tropico 20th Anniversary Software Pack with eight pieces of content currently available for at least $12.02, and the Fall VR Emporium Software Pack which includes seven games for $15 Just. p>
