The 'Humble Freedom Bundle' is huge and well worth picking up

By - | Views: 28,057
The 'Humble Freedom Bundle' has launched and with it, tons of stuff. A large majority of it is available on Linux too.

The bundle will cost you $30, but the entire of it goes to charity and Humble themselves will match the total up to a max of $300K themselves. That's a pretty fantastic deal considering separately these games altogether would cost quite a bit. The charities this time are ACLU, the IRC, and MSF.

Games that support Linux:
- Stardew Valley
- Day of the Tentacle Remastered
- Overgrowth (Early Access)
- Nuclear Throne
- Octodad: Dadliest Catch
- Invisible, Inc.
- Super Meat Boy
- World of Goo
- Mushroom 11
- No Time to Explain Remastered
- The Stanley Parable
- Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
- Super Hexagon
- VVVVVV
- The Swapper
- Spirits
- Human Resource Machine
- ROCKETSROCKETSROCKETS
- 2064: Read Only Memories
- A Virus Named TOM
- Mini Metro
- Tower of Guns
- Waking Mars
- Monster Loves You! (doesn't have Linux icon, but it does have a Linux version on Steam)
- AI War: Fleet Command
- Sproggiwood
- Hot Tin Roof: The Cat That Wore A Fedora Deluxe
- Secrets of Rætikon
- Girls Like Robots
- Ellipsis
- Ninja Pizza Girl (has no OS icons, but Steam says it has a Linux version)
- Robot Roller-Derby Disco Dodgeball

It also includes some audiobooks and ebooks as well! On top of that, they may be adding more as the bundle goes on.

Personally, I think that's an insanely great list of Linux games. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Quoting: M@yeulCWoops, I screwed hard on this one. I wanted to get back home and use my Linux PC to redeem the keys (Linux purchase and such), then realized that games that I wanted were gone from the bundle (No time to explain and nuclear throne -- maybe subnautica if I have a vive in the future and it get ported to Linux. Strike that. Every game I missed. I'm up for a trade with someone else on these (against key from other bundles I might not have redeemed)).
But what's heartbreaking is that, as I rushed to press purchase (greedy reflexes), I forgot to customize my split :/

Don't do the same mistake as me, but be aware that their steam keys seem to be in limited supplies. I don't know what it means for the game that "may" come soon.

It seems both games are back in action!

Quoting: g000hHi, Subnautica and Super Meat Boy are 'gone', but Nuclear Throne and the rest are still there. Super Meat Boy is often on sale, so you can pick that up cheaper some other time. Grab the bundle now ;)
Well, to be fair, I already had this one (and a great deal of others).

But yeah, as @Eike said,

Thanks a lot! <3

Quoting: TuxeeAnd you are one kind of a troll. Liam, I'm done here (at least with this "discussion").

Wait - you don't believe someone who has done a complete one minute search on the internet?!? ;)
I'm not here to research for you, you are not that important.

If you feel what you want to say is not even worth your own time, who am I to object? Just don't expect others to find it worth their time then...

Bye bye

Ow, lots of negativity in a thread about charities :/

Are my browser addons playing tricks on me, or have HiB removed the pizza pie with the payment breakdown per platform? Always thought it was way better than Steam's survey to point out that Linux ports were financially viable...

Anyway, 15 new games added (8 penguin certified - oddly enough Q.U.B.E. isn't), a music album and a book.

I'm definitely getting the bundle, even though I own some of the games. I'll just give away the keys.

Tell you what, I'll take it one step further: I'm going to build a complete machine, including installing a distro, setup the games and donate it to a charity. Prolly a hospital treating child cancer. @Liam, got any GOL stickers I could use to decorate the case?

Yes it is ! I can download Q.U.B.E from my Order Link as DRM-Free on Linux. ;)

Sounds like a great idea !

So i said i'm not buying this bundle because a reason i've summarized in a phrase, someone asks for more information, i just give him a tip so he can research by himself (maybe using the damn internet) but you want to read here tons of information?
I don't really care if you love MSF or any other charity, i'm just saying that i'm not paying them for games, i have my reasons and i wrote them here, but i'm not here for convincing any of you.

If you are curious keep researching on how charities are just the "cool" face of capitalism, if you don't give a shit then don't search and don't ask me to search it for you, as i said you are not that important, if you don't give a shit me neither.

I really hope that they will find a "real" software developer sometime which is able to fix all the issues which their site/store. e.g. the sort problem in the library exists for years already :(

Newest Fun: Humble Bundle is now asking to verify your phone number AFTER you have gone through the payment process. Alternatively you can cancel the order which I did. Received the mail which confirms that I have cancelled my order. Around 20 minutes later I get another mail which says that they still need more information (My phone number) to complete the order?!?!? *facepalm*
