The Humble Bundle has once again branched out from its indie roots with the Humble Deep Silver Bundle.

The deal is a pay-what-you-want offer for Saints Row: The Third, Saints Row 2, Risen 2: Dark Waters and Sacred 2. Paying above the average also unlocks Dead Island and all of the DLC for Saints Row: The Third.

As an additional bonus, anyone spending $25 or more will also receive Dead Island Riptide. Each bundle will also include soundtracks for Saints Row: The Third, Risen 2 and Sacred 2.

Like previous Humble Bundles, the amount paid can be split between the developers (in this case the publisher), charity and the organisers of the Humble Bundle themselves. However, the games offered are only available on Windows via Steam.

Previously, all Humble Bundles made a point of only featuring titles that were available on Windows, Mac and Linux systems. This policy was however first broken by the Humble THQ Bundle which ran last year before the publisher's bankruptcy hearing.

The offer is running for another 13 days and has already sold more than 150,000. The average payment at time of writing is $4.90 and it has currently raised three quarters of a million dollars.

Deep Silver bought the rights to the Saints Row franchise and developer Volition at the THQ auction earlier this year. Saints Row 4 is expected to be released towards the end of August.

As well as regular bundles, the Humble Bundle organisers are also running a weekly sale on selected indie games. At present, the pay-what-you-want weekly sale consists of four titles from Positech Games' library including Democracy 2, Kudos 2, Gratuitous Space Battles and Gratuitous Tank Battles.
