Humble Indie Bundle 8 has arrived so hand over your cash

Okay, you know the drill: there’s a new Humble Indie Bundle available. Handing over a (relative) few of your hard-earned ducats will get you a slew of great games, including indie darling Dear Esther and the aptly-titled multiplayer frag-fest Awesomenauts. But wait, there’s more: pay more than the average (hovering around $6 right now) and you’ll get a copy of Proteus in all its exploratory wonder plus a copy of Hotline Miami. Frankly, Hotline Miami alone is worth the meager cost of entry, and if you haven’t played it yet, well... shame on you. Shame.

Hotline Miami is a violent, challenging game that's worth more by itself than you can pay for the entire bundle.

The bundle has been available for about 24 hours, but it’s already raised over $1.1 million dollars for the developers, the Child’s Play Charity and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. So you’re getting great games, and your money goes to supporting a good cause; that’s a textbook win-win situation, folks. You’ve only got about 13 days left, but that’s just shy of two weeks you could be spending playing these awesome games. Downloads are DRM-free (but also include codes so you can download the games through Steam), and some of the games include soundtracks and Mac and Linux versions.

What? You’re still here? Fine, here’s a video.
