Gamers have just seven days left to make the most of the fantastic Humble Indie Bundle V offer.

The bundle allows individuals to buy five fantastic independent games released in recent years, bundled together with their soundtracks, all at any price they fancy.

Amnesia: the Dark Descent, LIMBO, Psychonauts, Superbrother: Sword and Sworcery EP and Bastion are all included in the bundle, which would usually set gamers back around $110 (£70).

However, customers get to pay what they want and choose how the money is divided up between the developers of the five games, two charities (the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play Charity) and the team that run Humble Bundle themselves, who have to pay for bandwidth and promotion.

However, in order to unlock the action role playing game Bastion, gamers must donate the average donation, which currently stands at just under $8 (£5).

The games all work on Windows, Mac and Linux and all come without digital rights management (DRM) limitations. To gain access to the games through Steam, customers will have to pay an extra $1 (64p) or more.

Currently there has been nearly $3.25 million (£2 million) from more than 400,000 purchases. The largest contribution so far has been $9,999.99 (£6,450) by Minecraft developer Markus Persson.

Linux users have been the most generous, donating $12.24 on average, compared to just $7.27 from those running Windows and $9.46 from Mac gamers.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation works to defends consumer rights in a digital world through a team of attorneys, activists and technology savvy individuals. It aims to protect individual privacy and freedom of expression across the globe.

Since 2003, Child's Play Charity has aimed to provide hospitals with consoles and video games for children suffering from illnesses. In nine years millions of dollars worth of video gaming equipment has been donated, making the lives of suffering children happier.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801379657-ADNFCR
