The latest Humble Bundle is now live. Paying $30 or more will get you access to over 20 Steam games, as well as a selection of books, with all of the proceeds going to charity.
Over $600 in content is part of the Bundle, including The Witness, Stardew Valley, Day of the Tentacle Remastered, Song of the Deep and Super Meat Boy. There are some notable Canadian-developed games featured as well, such as Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition, from Toronto’s DrinkBox Studios, Invisible, Inc., from Vancouver’s Klei Entertaiment, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, developed by Toronto’s Capybara Games and the Superbrothers.
You have the option of dividing the money you spend between three charities: the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Doctors Without Borders and the International Rescue Committee (IRC). “We chose these three organizations because of the inspiring work they do in providing humanitarian assistance to refugees and displaced people as well as in defense of justice, human rights, and civil rights,” writes Humble Bundle on its website.
It pledges to match contributions of up to $300,000 USD, which the bundle has already raised across over 14,000 purchases as of February 13th.
“We humbly remember that the United States is a nation of immigrants, and we proudly stand with developers, authors, and charities that champion liberty and justice for all,” writes Humble, discussing the bundle’s overall goal.
These statements follow U.S. President Donald Trump’s now halted controversial executive order to impose a ban on travellers from seven predominantly Muslim countries. Some game companies have already opposed the policy by donating proceeds of their games to the ACLU.
The Humble Freedom Bundle will run until 1:59pm EST on February 20th.
