The outrageously cheap decidedly Humble THQ Bundle raised a whopping $5,097,476.23 since launching on 29th November.

885,289 people purchased the pay-what-you-want collection which was comprised of Metro 2033, Darksiders, Red Faction: Armageddon, and Company of Heroes (plus its two expansions Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor). Those who payed over the average - which ended at $5.76 - received a copy of Saint's Row: The Third, Titan Quest, Red Faction: Armageddon's Path of War DLC , and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War.

Backers were able to choose how to split their donations between the Child's Play Charity, the American Red Cross and the Humble Bundle itself.

THQ President Jason Rubin donated a whopping $11,050 to the cause over the course two payments. He later tweeted that of his latter $10,000 pledge he gave $9500 to charity and $500 to the Humble Bundle. "I figured HB deserved thanks for giving us the opportunity," he stated.

THQ's stock price had increased to $1.40 a share by the end of yesterday, up 29.6 per cent from its pre-bundle price.
