This has got to be the greatest thing….EVER!!!

This is going to be the first Humble Bundle that I put the max amount to the Developer only…. smile

http://www.humblebundle.com/

Games include:

Costume Quest (An absolute favorite of mine… TY DF!)
Psychonauts
Stacking
Brutal Legend
Broken Age ($35+)
T-Shirt ($70+)

I own all these games on multiple platforms but I am still going to do this for the support and especially the soundtracks!

Happy Days!

I want the shirt, but um, $70 is too much.

I also own all of the games already.

I have most of Doublefine’s games and gear.  The only thing I really want is THAT PINT GLASS.  Why do I not see one in the store?

I think the additional $35 for the shirt would be more palatable if it included a set (2 or 4) of the pint glasses.

Overall, I think $35 is a wonderful price for all those games, assuming you own 0 to 2 of them. I agree with the previous posters that $35 is silly for a shirt, even a limited edition one. Unfortunately, like others, I already own all of the games and the listed soundtracks in one form or another, which, from my perspective, makes the shirts cost closer to $70 each. And I just heard back from Humble Bundle’s support department saying that I’d have to make two separate orders to get both shirts. $140 for two shirts? What kind of sense does that make?

This kind of illustrates my opinion that, while I love Humble Bundle and the service they provide, their business model of forcing people to re-buy games several times in order to get over-priced swag appears broken. It’s instances like this that really make me appreciate how some Kickstarter campaigns will let you purchase various bits of swag a la carte.

I just read the mail. Wow, do I really get DRM-free .exe file of Brutal Legend (no 3rd party client, no online authorisation for single-player game, etc.) if I pay more than BTA?

EDIT: Bought. The HB introduction video was that convincing. :D

Currently $8.11 or more gets you Brutal Legends and everything before it.

With respect to the shirts, bear in mind that they include international shipping. We had to factor in the fact that we’ll be getting orders from all over the world, and kind of average out the cost burden, since it wasn’t possible to do per-order calculated shipping.

There’s a DRM-free version of Brutal Legend but unfortunately it doesn’t have multiplayer because the entire game’s multiplayer infrastructure relies on Steam (didn’t make sense to invest in our own from scratch). It’s not a DRM decision, it’s an infrastructure decision—Valve has great infrastructure for that stuff. But you can play the entire SP campaign DRM-free!

Lucky for me, the only game I already had was Psychonauts, and I had been planning on picking the rest up anyway. No way I was going to miss out on this. Plus, that ad had me more than convinced.

I think just about all of us have multiple copies of the games. Do it to show your support for Double Fine and Broken Age!

Well, I think I know what to spend the next 35$ I get on.

I could stomach $35 for the shirt, problem is it would cost $70 to get it and it would be $70 because I own all the games already (some of them more than once), so there’s no value for me there.

So, as much as I would like it, it’s just too expensive for me.
