It’s Friday and that means it’s time for the Humble Weekly Sale! This week’s sale is offering six games from Kalypso Media. Launching every Thursday, Humble Bundle offers some great games for a minimum of $1.00 for the basic bundle or $6.00 for all six games and much of the proceeds go to support charity.
With purchases starting at $6.00 for the whole bundle that means you can get each game for a dollar. Although some of the games Kalypso is offering may not be appealing (I’m looking at you “Anna” even if the extended edition is a little better) $6.00 for the lot is still a good deal. The soundtrack to “Anna” is getting thrown in and Steam special editions of “Tropico 3 & 4”.
Various Humble Bundle proceeds have contributed to over $25 million for charity. The Humble Weekly Bundle will help support Child’s Play Charity and The American Red Cross. Purchase your bundle this week and help the folks at Humble Bundle contribute even more to great causes. Take a look at the list to learn more about the games in the Humble Weekly Bundle.
