Humble Bundle 5 adds three more games to the list

The Humble Bundle 5 has been out for a few days now, and after raising over $1 million in donations, the bundle is growing with three more games. The updated bundle adds the following three games, which were part of Humble Bundle 4:
  • Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP by Capybara Games
  • Splice by Cipher Prime Studios
  • Crayon Physics Deluxe by Klooingames
The titles are part of the "locked" portion of the bundle, which can be accessed by donating more than that average of previous donations. At the time of writing, the average sits at just $6.75. If you were to donate that amount or more, you'd receive nine DRM-free games in total. That's a heck of a deal and worth a look even if you just want a couple of them. So what are you waiting for? Get it now!
