Introducing The Humble Store

What first began as an occasional sale to support indie developers and charity has once again gone through an evolution to bring great content at even greater prices. The Humble Bundle has now expanded into the Humble Store.

What makes this the Humble Store different from its counterparts, the Humble Bundle and Humble Weekly Sale, mostly comes down to the rate that a new set of games are introduced. The Humble Bundle generally refreshes with new games each month and the Humble Weekly Sale does likewise each week. However, the Humble Store will replenish its stock with a new set of games every day.

The Humble Store will also not let you name your own price for the games. Generally with the previous Bundle, customers could buy a group of game for any price and were offered incentives to pay above the average payment. This time, each game is sold separately with a discount of at least 50 percent. Also, the distribution of the customers' money can not be edited in the Humble Store. Customer's payments will be divided at 10 percent for Charity, 75 percent to the Creator, and 15 percent as a Humble Tip.

So far the Humble Store has raised $104,000 in charity contributions. The charities that will benefit from the amount are the American Red Cross, Child's Play Charity, Electronic Frontier Foundation, World Land Trust, and charity: water.

Each purchase gives the customer a Steam code to download their game and is playable on Windows 8. However, some of the other listed games on the store are DRM Free and are also playable on Mac and Linux.

There are only a few hours before a new set of games arrive on the Humble Store, but, until then, gamers can find Don't Starve, Prison Architect, Rogue Legacy, Euro Truck Simulator 2, Natural Selection II, The Swapper, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Orcs Must Die 2: Complete Pack, and Gunpoint at greatly reduced prices.
