Following the success of Itch.io’s charity bundle for Ukraine this month (which raised over $6.3 million), Humble Bundle has kicked off its own Stand With Ukraine bundle, and it’s already off to a scorching start, having raised over $2 million less than five hours after going live.
The Stand With Ukraine bundle is more money for a smaller collection of games, $40 for 123 “items,” but it’s also generally a lot more mainstream than the very indie-focused Itch.io collection. Game highlights include Back 4 Blood, Metro Exodus, Max Payne 3, Quantum Break, and much, much more.
Games are obviously the big attraction but the bundle also includes a handful of digital books, including core rulebooks for Pathfinder, Starfinder, and Warhammer Fantasy, and graphic novels like Makhno: Ukrainian Freedom Fighter, Judge Death: My Name is Death, and The Boys: The Name of the Game.
There’s software for making your own games too, including a book on “practical programming” in Python, RPG Maker VX, GameMaker Studio 2, Music Maker EDM Edition, Unity tutorials and assets, and for anyone who could use a little inspiration, a documentary on the making of Lichtspeer.
Unlike most Humble Bundles, there’s no option to give developers or the Humble team a cut: 100% of funds raised will be divided between four charities: Razom for Ukraine, International Rescue Committee, International Medical Corps, and Direct Relief. Funds will be divided equally between them by default, but you can adjust percentages as you see fit if you like.
