EA's Humble Origin Bundle drew to a close with a whopping $10.5 million raised for charitable causes, which included the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and more.

Over 2.1 million bundles sold. Now Paradox Interactive are announcing the Humble Paradox Bundle "will go live today," from 8 p.m. CEST (11 a.m. PDT). $125 gets you everything.

The Big Kahuna package is reserved for those splashing $125 where you get a "copy of every single Paradox game" on Steam, not including Europa Universalis IV or its DLC.

"You’ve been demanding it for months, but we were too modest to make it happen… until now! The Humble Paradox Bundle will go live today, 8 p.m. CEST (11 a.m. PDT), and you can make a donation to your choice of worthy charities while picking up a bundle of Paradox favorites!" read the release.

"Of course, some of our fans aren’t very humble at all, and they’ll want to make a bigger donation. Which is why, if you donate more than $125, you get The Big Kahuna package… a copy of EVERY SINGLE PARADOX GAME on Steam (not including Europa Universalis IV or DLC packages)!"

The Humble Origin Bundle offered Dead Space, Dead Space 3, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Medal of Honor and Mirror's Edge. For those who cleared the average donation, The Sims 3 and Battlefield 3 were also included with Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Uprising and the original Populous added later.

Great work, even if it is a cheap way for EA to clean up their crappy reputation.

I would not exactly call $10m cheap even for EA and that is at massively reduced prices so in reality they probably "donated" double, triple or more.


A publicity stunt or not this was overall a really good sale both in the value received and the fact that it all went to charity.
It doesn't make me like EA just yet but at least I'm willing to see them as not completely evil now.
