Everyone’s favourite bargain basement has opened up an online storefront to sell its cut price wares, including indie hits such as Don't Starve and more.

It would be safe to say that Humble Bundles have provided many a gamer with some absolute bargains over the last few years, and now the owners have taken it a step further with the Humble Store…

The Humble Bundle store allows gamers to buy games individually for a knock down price, although this time the revenue distribution is fixed.

Previously, the Humble Bundles have seen customers choose an amount to pay and then decided how much is distributed between the organisers, the publisher and a list of charities. However, the Humble Store will offer a set price for the whichever games they are currently selling and send off 75% to the publisher, 15% to charity, and the remaining 10% to the crew at Humble.

The games available to buy will be time limited, with titles coming and going depending on the available offers. The Humble Store has launched with some cracking titles including The Swapper, Prison Architect, Rogue Legacy, and the ever-intriguing Euro Truck Simulator 2. These deals expire in a matter of hours so it looks like this could be a rapidly changing storeface for indie titles.

Oh and don’t panic bundle lovers, the Humble Bundles will still be continuing as usual. The Humble Bundles traditionally rely on selling bi-weekly packages of ‘pay what you think it’s worth’ indie content.

Here's the full list of content available on offer on the store today: 

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare - $6.25
Don't Starve - $7.49
Euro Truck Simulator 2 - $6.25
Gunpoint - $4.99
Natural Selection 2 - $6.25
Orcs Must Die! 2 - Complete - $6.25
Prison Architect Alpha - $14.99
Rogue Legacy - $7.49
The Swapper - $4.99

Liking the look of the Humble Store?

Think it's got what it takes to take on the giants over at Valve?

Everyone should get ETS2, I still play the game :D
(Eyefinity and a decent steering wheel = one of the best games ever created)

Definitely not boring (although I do understand that the concept sounds extremely boring) ^_^

Definitely a good game, I need to buy a wireless receiver for my xbox 360 steering wheel, I'm using a joystick at the moment which is better than the keyboard but not as good as a steering wheel.

don't starve is pretty neat, though after 15 days or so its kinda repetitive. but one cool upside is that is uses the steam workshop so mods and things are used.
