Sid Meier games are receiving the Humble Bundle treatment with the recent launch on the 4th February, and a couple of days ago this already accumulated $1.7m of purchases. This is great news for those who enjoy titles like Sid Meier’s Railroads and Civilization III and IV as the average payment of $8.73 allows users to obtain these games as well as two of Meier’s Ace Patrol games.
This is the ideal scenario from the company that allows gamers to choose-your-own-price deals when it comes to mobile and PC game collections, and reports suggest over 195,000 people have paid out for the bundle, especially considering this is no more than getting Civilization V and its Gods and Kings DLC.
Those paying more than $15 are also eligible to receive the game’s Brave New World DLC, which on its own could set gamers back a tidy packet, as an individual purchase could fetch around $144. Much like the bundles before consumers can choose how whatever amount they pay and this is split between games’ publisher 2K Games, charity Action Against Hunger.
Too get the full details of what is available we recommend visiting the Humble Bundle webpage and pay what you want while supporting charity, as there’s plenty of accessible content from Sid Meier. This site shows the bundles sold and the average price and all the games in the bundle can be acquired on Steam for Windows.
Around three months ago we highlighted the Humble Bundle domination with a charitable store that promotes a massive discount. We mentioned the fact that 10% of your purchase goes directly to your chosen charity, and that over $70,000 had been raised at that point.
At this point it is worth pointing out that this is a brilliant idea that is beneficial to all parties, so we would love to know whether you have used the Humble Bundle service and your opinion of this.
