The first Humble Indie Bundle, a collection of games discounted in the name of charity, made $1.2 million in sales earlier in the year. The second bundle has already surpassed that tally.


At time of posting, the Humble Indie Bundle 2 has made $1.3 million, with proceeds split between the developers, promoters, Electronic Frontier Foundation and Penny Arcade's Child's Play charity drive.

To celebrate the milestone, some of the games available as part of the deal, which includes classics like Braid and Machinarium, can now be unlocked on Steam, so you can keep the titles in the same place you keep everything else.

If you're wondering where the amazing image up top — featuring characters from all the games featured in the bundle — came from, it's the work of Arne Niklas Jansson, artist on Cortex Command. You should check out his sites, especially if you like X-Com.

UPDATE - Good news, everyone! If you've bought the second bundle before today, you now have instant access to all the games from the first Humble Indie Bundle. That means World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD, Penumbra Overture and Samorost 2 are yours. If you haven't yet bought it, those buying the second bundle and paying the average asking price (found on the official site) will be able to get them.
