Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle raises $1.1m+

It’s all over now, bar the shouting – and the Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle has officially sold 231,788 copies, raising a total of US$1,115,309.01. In case you didn’t carry the decimal point, that’s just over US$1.1 million. Not bad, my friends.

The Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle

Given the nature of this deal, it’s interesting to see the average prices paid across Windows, Mac and Linux. Remember, if you paid more than the current average (at time of purchase), you got extra content thrown in, so – in theory – people who paid up later would have paid a higher price.

It didn’t see any major changes in the eventual averages, though – the average Windows user handed over $4.13, Mac was $6.96 and Linux out on top again with $9.41. The average purchase price overall was $4.81 (an overall increase of just $0.31 since Day One).

A late addition...

At this stage, nothing has been announced about the financial breakdown of those figures, but a share has gone to the Frozen Synapse devs, some to the Humble Bundle organisers, and a portion to both selected charities, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play.

Originally announced with just one game, by the end of the fortnight, the Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle also included fellow indies SpaceChem and Trauma, with those willing to pay above the average also taking home the Humble FrozenByte Bundle containing Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds Survivor, a pre-order bonus for Splot and a prototype of Jack Claw.

With these Bundles selling like proverbial warm baked goods every time they go on sale, we’re guessing that this won’t be the last – keep an eye out for the next Humble Indie Bundle – or sign up on their mailing list for more information.
