Humble joins in fire relief efforts with a charity bundle of Australian games

Good News Notes:

“Humble this week joined the growing number of companies that have pledged to support Australia as it combats catastrophic bushfires. A  limited-edition Humble Bundle, called the Australia Fire Relief Bundle, was announced on Thursday. The collection of 29 PC games is available for a minimum donation of $25, with all proceeds going towards organizations dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating Australian wildlife.

The Australia Fire Relief Bundle has a promised value of over $400. Each of the included games is connected to Australia in some way, including Hollow Knightdeveloped by Adelaide-based Team Cherry, and the charming interactive storybook Paperbark, about a Wombat who lives in the Australian outback. I’m a big fan of the multiplayer dungeon-crawler Crawl and the gorgeous puzzle-adventure game The Gardens Between, both included in the bundle and developed by Australian studios.

As with all Humble Bundles, the $25 price tag is just a suggested amount. That’s the minimum to receive the games, but you’re always welcome to pay more than $25 for the bundle. Humble typically donates 10% of each Humble Bundle purchase to charity, but is sending 100% of the money it makes from the Australia Fire Relief Bundle to the World Wildlife Fund, RSPCA Australia, and Australia’s Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service. (Polygon has an affiliate partnership with Humble, but will not receive any portion of Fire Relief Bundle sales.)”
