The Humble Indie Bundle #4

The Humble Bundle Website now offers The Humble Indie Bundle #4, the latest edition in this pick-you-price bundle series with a charitable component. This time around the bundle consists of seven multi-platform, DRM-free games: All participants will receive Super Meat Boy, Shank, Jamestown, Bit.Trip Runner, and NightSky, and those who pay more than the average price will also get Cave Story+ and Gratuitous Space Battles. The EFF is no longer involved, as now customers can choose how their donation is split between the developers, Child's Play, and the American Red Cross.

Does this version of Super Meat Boy require Steam?

No version does, even the Steam version can be played without Steam and is DRM free.

I wonder why EFF is off the donation list. I kinda liked that they were getting something.

Looks like the humble bundle 4 devs voted on who to have and they decided red cross instead.

As well, EFF may well return presumably depending on who the devs of the next bundle vote

I already own 4 of the 7 games, and can honestly say this might be the best humble bundle yet. Super Meat Boy alone is worth $15. I'll be grabbing this, Shank has been on my wishlist for ages but I've yet to see a sale, until now.

Wow, with all the other bundles popping up, the Humble Indie group just seems to be cranking them out really fast.

Maybe its because the developers really are enjoying this and the help with its sales.

I know that the maker of The Oil Blue (sold in the Indie Royale bundle) has stated:

"15,000 sales of the Indie Royale bundle! That's x35 what I sold on my own with the Oil Blue in 1.5 years." Link

They might make less per sale, but make a ton more sales and get better known. And with the Humble Indie Bundle being the more well known, it might be worth it to offer your games there.
Very cool, I bought the thing with oil blue in it and have been quite enjoying it for what it is.

Can we have a week off from an indie bundle? At this rate I'll finally be checking these out once I hit the retirement home.

A friend surprised me with this when I woke up today & saw the gift in my e-mail. I already had Jamestown, Bit Trip, and Cave Story+ but am really enjoying the others in this pack!

Shank is a beat-em-up with a surprisingly smooth & variable combat system. Animation along the lines of Samurai Jack, from Cartoon Network.. and probably my least favorite part of the game (though it does flow smoothly)

Havent tried Super Meat Boy yet but I've heard good things.

Gotta say the real stand-out for me in this pack is Jamestown though. Its an excellent shmup, and the only downside in the game is a lack of internet Co-op. Local Co-op on a big screen TV (& arcade sticks ^_^) is an absolute blast with 4 players though.

Havent tried Gratuitous Space Battles yet, but it seems that you are actually given two copies of the game if you activate it in steam. One key is given to you on the Humble Bundle page, the other is given to you in Steam itself when you launch the game, and both are different, allowing you to create 2 separate multiplayer accounts to use. (thats as far as I got in the game though)

Best humble bundle yet, no doubt. I hope they break $1,000,000 in sales by midnight tonight. I think I'll buy a couple more for friends to help that become a reality.

This one is a great bundle if you enjoy platformers! The only one that sticks out is Gratuitous Space Battles, the only non-action game in that pack. The other games are all actually quite tough (but a lot of fun!).

Shank is a really nifty 2D shooter/scroller that has an awesome "Samurai Jack" vibe.

This is a great deal, since it has a handful of games I want but don't have.

This bundle in particular completely nailed it out of the park. Super Meat Boy is worth at least $15 on its own, but every single one of the other games is worthy on its own too.

Been ignoring these bundles for a while as I have way too many indie games in the "never really gonna play" pile, but this one was too good to pass up. Some real winners in there.
