Update: While we weren’t looking it seems another game has been added, this being co-op beat ’em up Dusty Revenge. Additionally, Double Fine Adventure has been added to the bundle, this being a documentary that details the creation of The Broken Age.
Update 2: Two more games have been added to the bundle! One is action RPG/card game hybrid Hand of Fate, which you can read our review of here. The second game is classic styled SHMUP Super Galaxy Squadron EX. This brings the current content count to 57 games, 8 books, 1 movie, and 1 music album.
Update 3: Even more! The System Shock Pack, which contains both System Shock Enhanced Edition and System Shock 2 has been added to the bundle. 59 games now.
To say the Humble Freedom Bundle has been a success is a bit of an understatement. The bundle blew past its $300,000 goal (which Humble matched the donations to) in only an hour and a half and has now made over 4 million to donate to the three charities split based on how each donor wants between the ACLU, Doctors Without Borders, and the International Rescue Committee. It’s easy to see why: The original bundle contained 40 games and 7 books for the low price of $30. Well, Humble is now seeking to sweeten the deal, as 15 more games, another book, and a music album have been added.
As before, it would be overkill to describe every game in the bundle. As such, here’s a list of the 15 new games added, along with links to any reviews we may have of the game:

In addition to this, they also added a new book in the form of Hands-On Intro to Game Programming, by Chris DeLeon. There’s also the bundle’s only album, Color Sky, by Ben Prunty, which is based off the music of FTL: Faster Than Light.
While the addition of new games is great, anyone buying the bundle now is missing out on one game, as Humble has run out of codes for early access underwater survival game Subnautica. They have also run out of Steam codes for Super Meat Boy, though a DRM-Free download is still available for the game. Earlier in the day they were also out of codes for Monster Loves You!, but it appears they have gotten more of those.
Regardless, there are now 54 games, 8 books, and a music album all available for $30. It’s a crazy deal that is worth jumping on.
