The latest Humble Indie Bundle has now seen more than $1 million paid out in total for its six games, with over 210,000 purchases made altogether.

The bundle originally launched on July 26 with five games, but has since added an extra title. Indie games now included in the bundle are Crayon Physics Deluxe, Cogs, VVVVVV, And Yet It Moves, Hammerfight and Steel Storm.

Purchasers of the bundle also receive a limited trial version of the hit indie title Minecraft, giving access to all the features of the game until August 14.

An average of $4.77 has been spent on the new bundle, as of this writing, with Linux users putting the most money down for the pack with an average purchase price of $11.63. Mac users are averaging $6.58 in payments while Windows users make up the majority of total payments with a $3.79 average purchase price.

This is the fourth bundle offered by the group to package a group of indie games together for a price set by the buyer, but only the third with the Humble Indie Bundle moniker. The current bundle managed $500,000 in sales and 105,000 purchases within the first 17 hours after launch.

The bundle is set to run for another 7 days, and past bundles have seen extra games and features added to the line-up as the sale progressed. The first three bundles have brought in at least $2.7 million in sales as of April.
