The idea of applying Radiohead’s pay-what-you-want scheme to games isn’t completely new: last year the model was tried for indie game World of Goo, and football management franchise Championship Manager. The latest attempt focuses on the indie side of things, with publisher Wolfire’s Humble Indie Bundle. It includes five games: World of Goo (again), Gish, Aquaria, Lugaru HD and Penumbra Overture. In its first 24 hours of availability, the initiative made more than $250,000 in revenues, which has since risen to more than $330,000. The average contribution is $7.96, with more than 40,000 buyers. Charities are also benefiting from the offer. Link
