Humble Bundle has announced that they are teaming up with Extra Life, the 24 hour video game marathon charity event that encourages raising funds for children with pediatric cancer. Their partnership is bringing a new pay-what-you-want bundle of PC games, beta keys and content subscriptions for Twitch and Reddit, to support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Fans can pay what they want for Potatoman Seeks the Troof, Trove Closed Beta (Humble Extra Life Starter Pack), Defiance (Humble Extra Life Starter Pack), Lone Survivor Director’s Cut, Landmark 1-Week Beta Access, Twitch Turbo 30-Day Subscription and Reddit Gold 30-Day Subscription. Those who pay $6 or more will also unlock You Don’t Know Jack Classic Pack, King Arthur’s Gold, SpeedRunners (Early Access Game) and Rift (Humble Extra Life Starter Pack). Paying $13 or more will get you access to everything above, Nom Nom Galaxy (Early Access Game) and King Arthur’s Gold Squad Pack (includes three additional copies of the game).
You can choose how to distribute your purchase between the developers, charity and Humble Tip. The generosity of video game fans everywhere has helped to contribute more than $47 million to over 30 different causes through the various bundles that have been offered over the years. Extra Life is a great cause to contribute to, and as someone who has participated the last three years and seen what the funding can do in my local community, I suggest you consider donating all your funds towards charity just this once, knowing well that you got a great deal and helped a child in need of treatment from terrible diseases.
If you are interested in the Extra Life event, Humble will be streaming footage of the marathon on Humble Bundle to raise awareness for the event and its cause, much like Speedrunners is doing this weekend as well. The bundle offer will run for six days, starting today, and is available over at the Humble Bundle website now.
