Humble HandyGames Mobile Bundle is Live

Nov 30, 2016

Here at Android Rundown, we are huge fans of the Humble Bundle initiative. What’s there not to love? It’s an alternative app distribution model that allows for folks to pick a price and get a bunch of games. Better yet, proceeds from those sales go to charity.

Everybody wins, and everybody feels good winning.

Now, there is a new bundle out, and with this one, we get some fantastic games from reputable Android developer HandyGames.

Here’s how it goes, using the recently revamped tiered pricing system:

Pay what you want, and get premium versions of:

1941 Frozen Front
Aces of the Luftwaffe
Aporkalypse
Clouds & Sheep
Guns’n’Glory WW2

Want more? Well, $3+ gets a bunch more. Everything up above, plus::

Rocket Island
Ninja Hero Cats
Guns’n’Glory Zombies
Stage Dive Legends
Devils & Demons
Super Dynamite Fishing
Save The Puppies
1944 Burning Bridges
Cyberlords

Finally, the big bucket… $5 or more gets everything above (14 games. 14!) PLUS:

1942 Pacific Front
Clouds & Sheep 2
Townsmen
Guns’n’Glory Heroes
Dynamite Fishing World Games

Not a bad haul.

As noted, these also support charities; this one helps out Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play.

Act fast; this one ends on December 5th.

Humble Bundle Launches “Choose Your Own Charity”

Humble Bundle Launches “Choose Your Own Charity”

Aug 28, 2015

Humble Bundle is reaffirming its commitment to transparency with a new initiative; now, users can pick a charity of their choice… from a pretty long list.

Humble Bundle is proud to announce that the Humble Store has now implemented a new feature which expands on Humble Bundle’s transparent, user-controlled approach to digital distribution. Starting today, customers are able to select a charity of their choice that will benefit from their purchase in the Humble Store. Previously, the choice was limited to a select amount of charities, but going forward, customers will now have the opportunity choose from a database of over 35,000 reputable U.S. and UK charitable organizations.

Since the store’s inception in 2013, 10% of all profits from the store have gone towards worthy charities and raised over $3 million to date from the store alone. Paypal Giving Fund, a non-profit that enables eBay users to benefit charities in a similar way, has made this possible as that is how charitable funds are transferred from the Humble community to the impressive number of reputable charities in the PayPal Giving Fund’s database.

“There are a wealth of amazing charities out there,” said Humble Bundle co-founder John Graham. “We don’t ever like saying no to great causes but in curating things ourselves, we find ourselves mainly picking larger nonprofits that have awesome established global brands that we think will resonate with our community as a whole. With this new feature, if parts of our community want to give aid to homeless shelters in San Francisco and others wish to provide fresh drinking water to Ethiopia, they can choose as they please.”

Head out to the Humble Store to check it out!
