Quoting: Quote from n30p1r4t3I loved Warmux! But as I know it, Worms was just the original. 

I know which came first, my question related to whether or not the worms title in the Bundle offered any real advantage over the free software ones.

Bought! Played the Bard's Tale, and my goodness Square One Games Inc. did a seriously good job on porting this!

It automatically detected my fullscreen resolution at 1920x1080, and set everything maxed out by default. All this on Ubuntu 13.10 with Nvidia 319 drivers in case anyone was wondering.

I'm going to give Worms Reloaded a go next. Both Greed Corp and Incredipede are not in my Steam Linux library yet, and Worms still doesn't have the binary.

That's what I meant. As in not really.

Quoting: Quote from abelthorneWarning: according to @ValiantCheese on Twitter, the Linux version of Worms Reloaded is not compatible with the Windows version for multiplayer!
What... noooooooooooooooooo

I was hoping to play with my Windows-using girlfriend

Testers have been aware of this since the beginning. I shot the tweet that abelthorne is referring to out in the hopes that it might encourage people to express to Team17 that there's demand for it. It's a result of the Mac port not being compatible with Windows either (which the Linux port is based on).

I've been playing Reloaded in since it was first released on Steam, so to continue playing with my friends who already play it, I'll have to stick with Wine. I was hoping that out of this, we'd have gotten all platforms playing together, but sadly, it looks like that hasn't happened.

This bundle seems to be off to a strong start revenue wise, but hasn't picked up purchasers as quickly as some previous android bundles. Stats are, of course, up on HumVis for anybody to peruse ^_^

Actually, they didn't. :P
On my system, the game start-up is the following:


$ ./BardTale 
Xlib:  extension "XINERAMA" missing on display ":0.0".
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


I have two monitors, each with their own X screen (*), so of course I have Xinerama disabled.

(*) One of the reasons being games trying to be smart and doing insane stuff like stretching over both monitors, not letting me switch to my second monitor mid-game to talk on IRC, not wanting to run on the second monitor, or even switching off the second monitor.

Good catch.
Unfortunately, in the total combined results, they add and they bundles that didn't have Linux games and that lowers our statistics by a large margin

I haven't yet implemented aggregate indicators for custom selections, but you can do a visual comparison by selecting just the bundles you're interested in from the frequency table for inclusion in the chart playground.

That's a good thing you did: I was barely interested in this bundle only because of Worms, as I know some of my friends play(ed) it. But they're on Windows. So I won't buy it in its current setup.

I really think this limitation should be mentioned in the article (and on the HB website but you don't have control over it).

That's most definitely something you should let them know about! It's very likely they only aimed for single monitor users (which I am at the moment, but hopefully in the future I'll go the way of multi-monitor).

It still seems like a good port to me, compared to older Humble Bundle's where the game's would usually not work properly for the first month :)

It might be worth highlighting as well that the DRM free version doesn't appear to have any multiplayer at this point (something I didn't spot this morning when I fired it up).
