This post-copyright campaign ends soon, on July 15!

Pay What You Want for art & music from:
1. HalcyonicFalconX, musician of the Epic Battle Fantasy series.
2. Jimp, artist of the Sushi Cat series.
3. NutcaseNightmare, creator of the :The Game: series.
4. Stratkat, whose music was featured in Beat Hazard Ultra.
5. Kenney, artist of Armor Picross.
6. Mindchamber, artist of Newgrounds Rumble.

Furthermore, if we hit our goal of $10000, after the campaign ends on July 15, everything in the bundle will automatically be released to the public domain. You can, of course, still pay to get instant access to the bundle, rather than waiting, if you so choose.

This is an experiment.

No matter what happens, hopefully this will push more people to try funding our creative commons!

I recognized some of the music that was used in this. It's great how you brought so many talented artists together. I don't know much about the politics of this, but it seems like something worth going for. Tom Fulp is probably the richest person on this website. $10,000 should be easy for him. This is a pretty big step.

I love how you're standing up for us ordinary people. I mean, the people who don't create stuff like this and make money off it. You guys are so popular, you should make enough revenue. I'm probably not going to give any money into this. I hope all goes well.

What would be a really nice idea is to open this up to other musicians/artists so that they can make their own humble bundle in the future, but again this is an experiment first.

The only issue with it that I can see is that people will still evade copyright so people can get copies for free, but it should be more of a motivation for those who want to make something more of it. I REALLY hope this works and, even better, becomes a common thing to do.

like Newgrounds: The Forsaken City everyone believes it is an awesome idea and i am sure everyone wants it but I am worried it will become just like that kickstarter and fail to reach the goal by the deadline
don't let this happen again we already lost one great kickstarter idea let's not lose another


Rated 5 / 5 stars

incredible idea will enhance the work of artists, animators and programmers
