The Humble Dystopian Bundle is out with some nice Linux games included

By - | Views: 9,553

For those of you after some fresh games, The Humble Dystopian Bundle is out and it includes a couple good Linux titles.

For the PWYW (Pay what you want) tier you will get Beholder and Orwell: Keeping an Eye On You. If you pay more than the current average then Orwell: Ignorance is Strength is yours.

And finally, if you pay for the top tier you will get >observer_ which is a personal favourite of mine. Great graphics, a story that kept me truly on edge and it really did leave a lasting impression.

Check out the The Humble Dystopian Bundle here.

That might not seem like a lot of titles, however, there's a few titles included that aren't on Linux. These are Tokyo 42, Distrust, Rain World and 60 Seconds! (which has a Linux beta). 

All of those work in Steam Play, although not all to a "Platinum" level.

Actually, you're right, it has an experimental beta going by this post. Announcement was here, looks like it's still not been made officially released.

At least 60 seconds starts fine. I didn't go any further.

Quoting: GuestRain World... Another failed Kickstarter. It's because of projects like this I don't back games anymore.
For now, I've added it to our Crowdfunding list page as a Fail. I've also emailed the developer directly to see if we can find out why well over a year later + a Linux stretch goal it seems to still not be on Linux.

Quoting: PatolaTalisman: this one I did not test (I don't like card games), but it seems to run without music via Steam Play according to ProtonDB.

I tested Talisman and it did not run. From what I could research online it fails because it expects the Windows Media Player Codecs. You need to download a tool to manually convert the files to WAV [1] or you install WMP into the wineprefix. Slightly annoying because I am sure the developers would only need a small patch to make it compatible with Proton. (The third option would be to select the legacy engine from the beta selector.)

I recommend Orwell.
I recall playing the first one and staying up to 3am on a work night just to see the ending. It just absorbed me in.
Bare in mind , it is narrative driven and the gameplay is simplistic. Your mileage may vary.

I quite pleased with fact there is a lot of DRM-FREE stuff this time. Tokyo, Orwell, Rain World. Humble laely got quite "steam-obsessed" so seeing this bundle is good news. Would be happy if rain World have be both linux-compatible and Drm-free, but oh well.

Quoting: GuestThat's right above the "for spelling, grammar and other corrections" text. Has been ever since affiliates started.
Right you are, my bad. In my defence the small text, plus the placement after the like & bookmark buttons makes it easy for the eyes to jump over. Also I apologies for not using the other other corrections link for reporting this non issue.
