Pay what you want for Little Inferno, Super Hexagon, and more
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

We've partnered up with the fine folks at Humble Bundle, along with a bunch of our indie pals, to present to you a very special Destructoid-curated Humble Bundle! Pay what you want and you'll get Little Inferno, Super Hexagon, and Natural Selection II along with each of their soundtracks.

Pay $6 or more and you'll also receive Critter Crunch, Hotline Miami, and PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate (plus soundtrack). Both Critter Crunch and PixelJunk Monsters Ultimate are making their first appearance in a bundle with this promotion too.

All the revenue raised here will go to the developers behind each game, and you can also choose to have some of the money go towards two great charities: Child's Play and Watsi.

The Humble Bundle presented by Destructoid will be live until April 10 at 11AM Pacific. We'll be giving away some codes for this collection over on our Twitter and Facebook pages, plus we'll livestream all these games on our Twitch channel throughout the entire promotion run starting today!

Six great games, six wonderful developers, and two great charities. Thanks again to the crew at Humble, and developers Unknown Worlds, Capybara Games, Terry Cavanagh, Tomorrow Corporation, Q-Games, and Dennaton Games!
