Prepare to get warm fuzzies, my friends. The Humble Indie Bundle has surpassed its goal of bringing in $1 million in contributions! As of last night, I was seriously doubting the Internet would be able to collectively come together in perfect harmony; I'm absolutely delighted to be wrong.

What does this mean for you? Two things. First, the sale has been extended by a few days. I've been yapping about how great this promo is for long enough, so I'll give it a rest already. And as promised, because the goal was hit, the source code for Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD, and Penumbra Overture will go public.

As of writing this, only Lugaru HD has its code out for all to see. The hope is for the other titles to become open source very soon if not sometime this week. Everyone who helped make this a success story ought to hug a stranger or do something equally joyous.

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
