Basically, you get these awesome games:
-Amnesia: the Dark Descent
-Psychonauts
-LIMBO
-Superbrothers: Swords & Sorcery
-Bastion
-Lone Survivor
-Braid
-Super Meat Boy

The last four games can only be bought if you pay above the current average. Plus their soundtracks for any price you want starting from 0.01 (but please be a little more generous), and the money goes to funding Child's Play.

Sounds good, yes?

Wow, the average price paid is seriously $8.40 (at the time of this writing)? What a load! I've never liked the idea of letting people pay their own price for the Indie Bundle without a minimum price. Each of the games in this bundle's selection is worth at least $15 in my honest opinion (I paid full retail for Amnesia at release and put down a little extra cash for Bastion at release to get the superb soundtrack). It's got Superbrothers, Limbo, Meat Boy AND Psychonauts as well!

Why is this not at least $50? For all the undeniable awesome in this package, how can anyone justify dropping $8.40 on average for the best indie package I've ever seen in my twenty-six years of life? Are people frustrated that the Meat Boy soundtrack isn't included?

I think the closest argument they have to justifying it is that a lot of the money goes to charity. Just take a look at the total payments. 4.5 Million and rising. It is obvious that this approach has succeeded in bringing the money in, much more so than I'm guessing it would have if the minimum price was $50.
