Humble Bundle Opens The Humble Store

humble-bundle-headerChances are that you’ve bought a game (or several) from a Humble Bundle or purchased an indie game directly from the developer through the so-called Humble Store. However, that Humble Store was really just a little sales app on a developer’s website and a download link in your email.

That is until Monday when the folks behind the Humble Bundle launched the Humble Store storefront.

The Humble Store allows you to purchase indie games a la cart from the store in much the same way that you can buy games from the likes of Steam, GOG and Green Man Gaming. You log onto the Humble Store, add the games you want to your cart and pay for them. The store even lists up front which operating systems the game is available for and if they are available on Steam or DRM-free.

As you’ve come to expect from Humble Bundle, portions of the proceeds will be divided up between the developer, charity and the Humble Bundle tip. However, unlike bundles and weekly sales, there is no option to adjust the split. Developers get 75%, Humble gets 15% and the remaining 10% goes to charity with an even split between the American Red Cross, Child’s Play, the EFF, World Land Trust and Charity: Water.

As of writing, the Humble Store appears to have only nine games on it. While the selection is a little slim, the discounts are big. The minimum discount is 50% with some games on sale by up to 75%.
