Humble Store makes its debut.

 

For those of you who can’t get enough of the Humble Bundle releases and weekly sales, you’re in luck. Those behind the Bundle have launched the  Humble Store.

The above video shows a mute demonstration of how the new Humble Store works, and anybody familiar with Steam or Good Old Games will feel right at home. Inside the store, you will find a number of games (mostly independent titles, for those curious) at sizable discounts. Unlike the Bundles, however, only a part of the money earned for the games will go to charity.
 
The exact breakdown of funds are as follows: 75 percent of the purchase goes to the creators of the game. 15 percent goes towards administrative fees, and the final 10 percent goes to charity.
 
Right now the selection on the Store is a bit scant, though most seem to be standout quality titles, such as Don’t Starve, Gunpoint, and Rogue Legacy. There are several other games available on Windows, Linux, and Mac, and none of these are currently priced more than $7.50.
 
For those that prefer the old way of doing things, you’re also in luck. The Humble Bundle will continue to appear on a regular basis.
 
What are your thoughts on the new Humble Store?
 
Thanks, Joystiq.
