That's just a sampling, but there are plenty of other games that make this bundle worth jumping on.

Humble's latest weekly bundle is a little different from the past offerings.

Since its start in 2010, the Humble Bundle has raised north of $50 million for various charities as part of its pay-what-you-want downloadable sales.

The new Humble Freedom Bundle is benefiting three charities this time and is full of great PC titles, such as Stardew Valley, The Stanley Parable, and Octodad: Dadliest Catch. For just $30, the Freedom Bundle will net you nearly 40 games and a small pile of eBooks.

The idea behind the Freedom Bundle came from some of the company's employees and several game developers.

Inspired by "the magnitude of games that developers were donating" Rosen said the Humble Bundle team will match the first $300,000 in donations made with additional funds from its own coffers.

As hard as we may try, it's not always easy to avoid politics in video gaming, a medium whose best quality is arguably escapism, especially in America 2017. For the next week, every penny earned from sales of the Humble Freedom Bundle will go to support the American Civil Liberties Union, the International Rescue Committee, and Doctors Without Borders.

Currently, the Freedom Bundle has sold more than 65,000 bundles totaling over $2,1 million in less than one day. This is unlike other previous bundles where the buyer could choose how much money goes to either Humble Bundle, the developers, and the charity now supported.
