Despite it being a move that smacked of desperations, THQ's Humble Bundle seems to have been on the moment.
The Humble Bundle is normally the domain of the indie developers, but apparently THQ needs money so badly that it's gone and made a bundle of its own.
The bidding on THQ's assets has closed, with Gearbox Software, Nordic Studios and 505 Games walking away with the lot.
As the game studio is divided and conquered in the wake of its final collapse, we look at some of the hits (and misses) that THQ gave us over the years.
THQ's properties are to be sold off to several other games publishers as the studio finally closes its doors.
On 22 January, THQ's franchises will be auctioned off title by title, according to Polygon.
The gaming giant has filed for bankruptcy with a range of anticipated games still in development.
THQ has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, but it isn't quite bankrupt; it has actually secured an investor and it's "business as usual".
The THQ bargain sale has proven to be unsurprisingly popular, with the company raising a truckload of cash.
The beleaguered company will give away Steam codes to community members while stocks last.
