Bundle for Android 2
Five games—never-before-seen on Android—for your phones and tablets. We're bringing the hottest mobile entertainment to your Android devices. Pay-what-you-want to get Zen Bound 2, Canabalt, Cogs, and Avadon: The Black Fortress (tablets only). And if you pay more than the average price, you'll also get the vibrant, side-scrolling strategy game Swords & Soldiers.
Playing at your desktop? No problem. Buying the Humble Bundle for Android 2 also gets you Mac, Windows, and Linux versions of all the games! Customers will also receive digital audio for each game with an official soundtrack.
Pay what you want. If you bought these games separately, it would cost around $57. We are letting you set the price!
The games work great on Mac, Windows, Linux, and Android (system requirements here). Note that this is the initial release of all the games for Android, and most of them for Linux. Please be patient while the developers fix any 1.0 bugs as quickly as they can, and of course, don't hesitate to contact us if you encounter any issues.
You can support charity. Choose how your purchase is divided: between the developers, the Child's Play Charity, or the Electronic Frontier Foundation. And if you like this deal, a tip to Humble Bundle would be much appreciated!

Nice, though I'm quite disappointed by the quality and support of the Linux ports from the bundles.
Liam Dawe Mar 19, 2012
What is wrong with the quality of them?
Kame Mar 19, 2012
Well, there STILL hasn't been any updates for the games from the HIB 4.

- Zen Bound 2 silently fails to start with Mesa drivers. You need to manually disable antialias in the game config. Considering that they asked for Linux beta testers and promised include Mesa devs with the beta testers this should have been caught and fixed.

- Still no fixes for Shank and Super Meat Boy. One needs to dig around in the bug tracker to find patches.

- Anomaly Warzone Earth from the first Android bundle is still broken. It was broken when it was first released (I could repeat the gripes about testing again here) and it's still broken in the latest update (which we waited a month for) with no word whatsover from the developers.

Have you contacted the Humble Bundle guys as well as reporting problems to the developers?

I haven't personally encountered any of the problems you're mentioning.
Cheeseness Mar 20, 2012
I haven't had any problems with Shank or SMB myself.

Assuming you've already identified, subscribed to and submitted any extra details you might have to relevant bugs on the icculus.org bugzilla, it wouldn't hurt to shoot an email to the [email protected] as well (including relevant bug numbers). Maybe they can get Icculus' attention (or one of the other people working on maintaining the Humble Bundle ports).

i havent had any problems with the humble bundle games. only problem i had was with avadon. but it was corrupt download and md5 didnt match. redownload fixed it.
i guess open source drivers still the common issue for some games with more gaphical detail or features and also some sound problems that have been plagued linux quite some time.
i myself havent run into those tho. but i have been using prop drivers with my ati card when i had it and now with nvidia as well.

Up to the Voxatron Debut, I've had no problems either (except Cortex Command, which stopped receiving updates to the Linux version, but it's a beta). Binding of Isaac is terribly slow on any machine, while works well under wine. Then there was SMB, where the community part does not work. I personally didn't have any problems with Shank, but I guess I was just lucky.

Before they started including Team Meat games, the Linux support was great. But Team Meat does not care at all. They did not even advertise the bundles (the ones they were in) on their website. That's my way of measuring as to whether the dev cares or not.

Quoting: "Xpander, post: 3760, member: 92"i guess open source drivers still the common issue for some games with more gaphical detail or features and also some sound problems that have been plagued linux quite some time.

The thing is that these were bugs _in the games_ not the drivers. But Nvidia and AMD doesn't follow the specs, so Mesa ends up taking the blame.
