It's all about charitable gaming today. Not only are millions of kids having a bash at a maths game to raise money for Unicef, but it has been revealed how many greenbacks a pay-what-you-like software bundle made, of which a third was donated to charity. Today is World Maths Day, so as we speak, over five million children are …
Note to Imperialist DRM supporters-
Told you you could make money by givig stuff away!
& who said all gamers were freetards?
Good work there Humble! :)
maybe not freetards, but
the 9,000 who paid 1 cent each should take a long hard look in the mirror.
Not all the games' source was released, particularly of the second batch - only Revenge of the Titans was to be released, and then only once 1.75m was raised.
Also, there were issues with releasing the source to Lugaru, when some jackass promptly built a version of it using all the original assets, pushed it through the Mac Store at $2 when the official version was $10...
But yeah, nice to see that some gamers were paying over the odds for things :)

World Maths Day?
Seriously, are the English still trying to force "MathS" down the worlds throats?
Please stop already. Please show at least some sign of intelligence. Since there is no abbreviated form of mathematics that is acceptable in all English dialects, then when naming anything "World Anything Day" assure that when the "anything" is substituted with a word which is an international standard.
The day should be called "World Mathematics Day" unless it was intended just for the part of the world which speaks the British dialect of English.
