Get games, streaming tools, apparel with Humble Awesome Games Done Quick Bundle

There will undoubtedly be dozens of cool gaming moments streamed during Awesome Games Done Quick's week-long charity event (which started today!), but why let strangers on the internet broadcast all the fun? Never mind if you don't have the necessary subscriptions – You can just pick up the Humble Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 Bundle, which features tools to help you get started with streaming as well as Steam keys for several games included within AGDQ's schedule (Mac and Linux support varies with each game).

Those that celebrate the Humble Bundle series' pay-what-you-want pricing option by paying less than $6 will receive Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition, Shadow Warrior Classic Redux, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Volgarr the Viking. Once $6 or more is contributed, Shantae: Risky's Revenge - Director's Cut and SpeedRunners (along with its YouTuber packs) will be added to that, as well as a 30-day subscription to Twitch Turbo, which allows broadcasts to be archived for sixty days and is mostly ad-free.


Paying $10 or more will roll Escape Goat 2 into the pile, as well as a three-month subscription to XSplit Premium, which includes software used for broadcasting livestreams. Finally, chipping in $30 or more will earn the AGDQ 2015 Bundle Merchandise Pack, which will include t-shirts, buttons and more designed by geek apparel store The Yetee.

The Humble Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 Bundle benefits the Prevent Cancer Foundation, but as always, patrons can decide how their money is split between the charity, game developers and the Humble Bundle organization. If you've already got plenty of games and a setup for streaming, you can still browse AGDQ's schedule and tune in to the speedruns that interest you.
