The Humble Voxatron Debut now trading pixels for charity

Shares

The Humble Bundle crew is giving gamers an opportunity to run, jump, shoot, and build their way to good karma with the launch of The Humble Voxatron Debut. Unlike previous Humble indie Bundle promotions, this new fundraiser is built around one lead indie game, Lexaloffle Games' Voxatron alpha, with the option to receive Blocks That Matter and The Binding of Isaac as bonus games for paying over the average price. No matter the donation, players can split their payment between each developer, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Child's Play charity, or the Humble Bundle organization itself.



Available for PC or Mac, Voxatron is best described as the love child of 3D Dot Game Heroes and Minecraft. It stars a 3D pixelated hero with a pea shooter who must brave a retro-styled world and its beasties, all of which are built using the same three-dimensional pixels (aka Voxels). One of the biggest bullet points of the game is the ability to create environments and characters from the ground up using a robust Voxde level editor. Those who purchase The Humble Voxatron Debut will also have access to future game and editor updates.

13 days remain in the Humble Voxatron Debut sale. So far, the promo has sold over 87,000 copies and raised over $370,000, with Minecraft's Markus 'Notch' Persson contributing the most at $2,000. You can add to the tally (and get a pretty cool indie game to boot) buy picking up your copy here.

    They added the Binding of Issac and Blocks that matter? I was thinking of picking them up anyway. I love these bundles.

    @SomeOddGuy Hey sweet dude, thanks for all that information. I'm still concerned about how I redeem Voxatron. The website only has a buy for 15$ option, I see no place on that site where I could redeem a code.

    The Voxatron game is simply downloaded from the key link they provide you with after purchasing the game.(Much like Cortex Command in the Humble Indie Bundle 2) So long as you know the link(recommended you save the e-mail or bookmark the link), you should be able to download it from there at any time from now into the future.

    @Bladex206- It's actually given to you as a link that's forwarded to your e-mail, and from what I've been seeing with my Humble Bundle 2 key, the link is continually kept on their server for access at any given time. Also, just a heads up that they updated the bundle recently to include The Binding of Isaac and Blocks that matter to the list of games included, though these two are only available to those willing to pay the average which is $3.90.

    Crap, should have mentioned they usually also give you a key to the games for activation on Steam, Desura, Onlive, etc. and all games are provided with a download link too all current OS types, including Linux.

    Can someone confirm what account this all gets tied to? Is it my Paypal? Or tied to the Email I use. I really want to support this bundle.
