Humble Bundle launches online store for games

Humble Bundle has opened an online store called Humble Store, an extension of the sales system developed for managing the Humble Bundles.

Joshua Knoles of the Humble Bundle told in an interview earlier, “We wanted to create something that would allow developers to easily sell their games through their own web site as well as provide a painless buying experience for purchasers.”

That puts Humble Bundle in the same league of Valve’s Steam which sells works online via Steam Store.

In a blog post, Humble Team said,” Today only, you can get Don’t Starve, Natural Selection II, Euro Truck Simulator 2, The Swapper, Prison Architect, Rogue Legacy, Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, Orcs Must Die! 2 and Gunpoint at 50-75% off for the next 24 hours. We’ll be adding new games every day, so make sure you keep checking back at The Humble Store!”

Humble Store, will continue the organization’s legacy of supporting causes. “The Humble Store is a permanent addition to our Humble site that will allow our customers to buy great games at great prices 24/7 and support charity with every purchase. Ten percent of all purchases will go to vital causes like American Red Cross, Child’s Play, Electronic Frontier Foundation, World Land Trust and charity:water.”

Humble Bundle will continue to offer the pay-what-you-want Humble Bundles and Weekly Sales, in addition to the store where customers can buy works as and when users want.
