The gates have closed on Humble Indie Bundle #4, and thanks to all your generosity and Notch's friendly competition the two highest contributions in the history of the Humble Bundle have been placed on the biggest Bundle ever! A total of $2,372,044.68 was raised in the name of charity and independent game developers; THIS is why the Humble Brony Bundle exists!
I wanted to share a few relevant statistics about you, the Humble Brony Bundle donators:
- There have been over 1,000 distinct donators so far. This isn't just a handful of rich bronies making a ruckus; over ONE THOUSAND of you have taken part. Considering the "average brony" is an 18-22 year old starving student that says a lot to me.
- Many of you missed it, but our initial payment on the Humble Indie Bundle #4 raised the average donation size by over a dollar immediately! It settled down a bit afterwards, but our large pooled contribution still helped to keep the average higher than it would have been, increasing the overall revenue of the Humble Indie Bundle #4.
- $17,375 raised over the course of 35 days is an average of $500 per day!
- The HBB + Notch together makes up over 1% of the total donations on Humble Indie Bundle #4. 1% might not seem like much... but it's 1% of almost 2.4 million dollars. With a figure that large, and 435,000 Bundles sold, a whole percent point is a lot!
This Bundle may have ended, but the Humble Brony Bundle will continue on! It has to; there's already over $150 waiting for the next Humble Indie Bundle!
See, that's the thing: even after we had already "won" against Notch's generosity your contributions continued to come in, and now that this Bundle has closed you are continuing to donate without even knowing when the next Bundle will be announced. You guys continue to amaze me. :D
