The Humble Indie Bundle is a unique collection of well-received multi-platform DRM-free indie games packaged into a name-your-price bundle. That's right, you can decide how much you want to pay for these games. Not only that, there is no corporate middle man involved in the transaction and the proceeds are split between going directly to the developers and going to charity.
The games are: Gish, World of Goo, Penumbra Overture, Lugaru HD, and Aquaria.
I've seen this sales model tried in the music industry, but this is the first I've heard of anyone doing it in the game industry. We'll see how it goes. They are only offering the deal for about 4 more days.
Interesting related side note: they have displayed the current average sale price broken down by platform, and Linux customers are paying almost twice as much (about $13.50) as Windows customers (about $7).
