Humble Bundle is running the latest in a series of experimental pay-what-you-want video game bundle deals, linked with two charity organizations. Frozen Synapse, a simultaneous turn-based indie game developed by Mode 7 Games, can be purchased at any price. Customers can divide their payment between Mode 7 Games, Humble Bundle, Child’s Play and Electronic Frontier Foundation. If the payment is above the average amount ($4.56 USD at time of writing) a previous five-game bundle, the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle, is thrown into the deal.
The Humble Frozen Synapse Bundle website features a Twitter ticker, a sale countdown, a graph showing the top ten contributors along with the average payment amount by operating system.

Child’s Play, one of the two charities involved with the Humble Indie Bundles, was set up by the Penny Arcade webcomic creators Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins in 2003 to send millions of dollars of toys, games, books and movies to children’s wards in hospitals worldwide.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation is an international non-profit digital rights advocacy and legal organization, working with the legal ramifications of technological developments.
Update: As of September 30th, TRAUMA has been added to the Frozen Synapse bundle. From the website: “TRAUMA is a unique photographic experience by game designer Krystian Majewski. Dive into the mind of a traumatized young woman to learn and understand.”
