Humble Indie Bundle V brings the star power

The Humble Indie Bundle, the pay-what-you-want indie-gamestravaganza, is back with its fifth offering, and this one includes the highest-profile titles to date.

Through June 14, gamers can pick up first-person frightfest Amnesia: The Dark Descent, developer Double Fine’s sequel-deficient Psychonauts, Playdead’s creepy puzzle-platformer Limbo, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP (the game that invaded everyone’s Twitter feeds when it came out) for any price they see fit. Those who pay more than the average ($7.13, as of this writing) will also receive Supergiant Games’ action-role-playing game Bastion. Everything is playable on Mac, Windows, and Linux.

All of the games arrive free of any digital rights management, so they’ll be yours to do with as you wish. Your purchase also includes soundtracks for all five games in both MP3 and Free Lossless Audio Codec format.

As usual, bundle purchasers can decide how to distribute their money between the games’ developers, Humble itself, and charities The Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child’s Play.
