Contests are cool, and it's definitely a cool contest once again here on the Polygon forums. You know those Humble folks right? They're the folks who work with developers and publishers to not only let gamers name their price for cross-platform, DRM-free indie games - but they've also raised more than $30 million for charity to date... That's not too shabby at all, eh?
Here are all the details you need to know.
WHAT GAMES ARE IN THE HUMBLE 2K BUNDLE?
The following games are included:
A DRM-free copy of Bioshock, as well as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified and The Darkness 2 if you spend $1. If you pay more than the average price during the promotion you'll also unlock Bioshock 2, Mafia 2 and Spec Ops: The Line. If you go above and beyond and go above the $20 limit you'll get a copy of Bioshock Infinite, as well as XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
For the mid-promotion additions you'll need to wait and see, however, the winners will get all of the above titles including those games as well. There's a video below where you can check out footage of all the games announced thus far.
Look at the image below. It's a wonderful image, right? Well the ten best captions (amusing, sad, poetic, FUNNY) will take home the prize. I'll be deciding along with a guest judge, I'll announce who that person is next week.
