About  a week ago, The Indie Toaster talked about the benefits of keeping your indie games free from DRM. Coincidentally, the people at Humble Bundle just opened their sales season with a very interesting offer; aptly labelled The DRM-Freedom Sales.

For the next five or so days, the site will sell a long list of titles – both AAA and indie games – at up to 96% off of their original price. Are you interested in knowing more about it all? Then just keep reading!

Let’s Rifle Through The Shelves

The Humble Store is popular for its alluring offers, but this time the team in charge went all out. The DRM-Freedom Sales include more than 200 games and no, I’m not going to list them all here. What I can do for you, instead, is point you towards some titles that I feel you simply mustn’t miss.

Shovel Knight – Treasure Trove is there, but you’ll also find titles such as Wandersong, the extremely popular Owlboy, and Banished – a city builder that also happens to be a personal favorite of mine.

You’ll want to stop by the Double Fine Deals and pick up remastered classics like Grim Fandango and Day of The Tentacle. I think Brutal Legend and DLC Quest also deserve some attention, but the choice is ultimately up to you!

Get Games and Give To Charity

Whenever you go through checkout, regardless of how much you spend, Humble will always send 10% of  the total to a charitable foundation of your choosing. You get a couple of great new games to play; they get a donation to help them keep doing what they do best: make the world a better place.

And remembers: all of the titles in the DRM-Freedom Sales let you contribute to charity. If those I mentioned in this article aren’t exactly your favorite, others on the list might. Simply take a few minutes out of your day, visit this link, and peruse at your heart’s content!


One last thing: whatever purchase you make through the links above is also going to help the team at The Indie Toaster. All contributions go directly towards covering the costs for our servers – ensuring we can keep bringing you great indie entertainment content!
