Humble Bundle Accounces Acquisition by IGN; Will Continue to Operate Independently

"John and I started Humble Bundle from our childhood homes".

Rosen claims the site has raised $106 million for charity in its seven-year existence through over 10 million customers.

To this day, Humble Bundle has managed to raise over $100 million for charity, though many fans appear skeptical that the store will do things in the same way. When our parents found out that our "big idea" was basically the honor system of pay-what-you-want plus charity, they braced themselves for the possibility that we might never move out. We are incredibly proud of this figure, of our team, and the Humble community which got us here. The bundles can be a great way to save on some new games or books, but, more importantly, they are a great way to help out a good cause as much of the proceeds from Humble Bundle sales go to various charities.

Iraq says Kurds brought PKK fighters to Kirkuk in 'declaration of war'
The United States has taken the side of the Iraqi government in refusing to recognize the validity of the referendum. Iranian Major General Qassem Soleimani arrived on Saturday in the Kurdistan region to hold talks about the crisis.


You'll likely recognize Humble Bundle as the premiere sellers of cheap indie games, allowing users to purchase titles at "pay-what-you-want" pricing tiers. Many gamers have accused IGN of being too chummy with the larger gaming industry, trading access and exclusives for favorable reviews. As it stands, IGN and Humble are maintaining their independence from one another other than support from IGN to help with Humble's growth.

IGN used to have its own digital game store, Direct2Drive, but it sold it to GameFly in 2011. Humble Bundle is favorably seen by the gaming community for their efforts and IGN is somewhat the opposite. In fact, Humble Bundle will be keeping their own staff and office space as they continue to operate as a separate subsidiary with folks at IGN only lending a helping hand from time to time.
