The makers of Braid, Cortex Command, Machinarium, Osmos and Revenge of the Titans have teamed up with the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play to offer the Humble Indie Bundle #2.

Child's Play donates toys, games, books and cash to children in hospitals around the world. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is an international non-profit digital rights advocacy and legal organization.

Here's how the Humble Indie Bundle #2 works:

1. Go to http://www.humblebundle.com
2. You choose how much you're willing to spend on the bundle of these five excellent indie games. You can choose any amount from $0.01 (cheapskate) to $1,000,000,000 (why hello, Mr. Gates!)
3. Use the sliders to determine who gets what percent of the money from step 2: All to the developers, all to the EFF, all to Child's Play, all to Humble Bundle, Inc. as a tip for running the promotion, an even split across all of them, or you can set the percentages manually.
4.Play the games firm in the belief that you've helped a good cause!

All the games come in versions for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux and are DRM free.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

Update:

They've sweetened the deal!

Anyone who donates more than the current average donation (currently $7.40US) will also receive the Humble Indie Bundle #1 which has: The World of Goo, Aquaria, Gish, Lugaru HD, Penumbra Overture, and Samorost 2.

People who have already donated more than the average should get an e-mail informing them about their new games. People who have already donated but donated less than the average can visit the download page they received via e-mail to increase their donation.

I got both packs, and I must say I liked Machinarium and World of Goo the best so far. I haven't yet tried all of them though.
