John and I started Humble Bundle from our childhood homes. When our parents found out that our “big idea” was basically the honor system of pay-what-you-want plus charity, they braced themselves for that possibility that many of us might never transfer. Seven years later, due to the generosity that could reach over 10 million customers, we’ve now raised $106 million for charity. We’ve been incredibly satisfied with this figure, individuals team, as well as Humble community which got us here.
But where we’ve come, we understand were just starting out. More substantial things lie ahead, and we think IGN is the best partner to assist us get there.
If you prefer Humble Bundle now, stay tuned, because we’ll have an overabundance of exciting circumstances to be part of the longer term.
Reportedly, Humble Bundle continue to function separately, with IGN just providing support to accelerate growth and lift additional money for charity.

If it may not be broken, don’t remedy a repair. The thought is just to provide them the resources they have to keep doing what they’re doing.
