To mark the tenth anniversary, the team over at Humble have now launched the Humble Indie Bundle 21 with some wonderful Linux games included. Hard to imagine it was ten years ago that the first bundle appeared, back when it was run by Wolfire Games and later spun into its own company.
We've had a huge amount of games added to our collection thanks to Humble over this time!
Titles included at the initial tier:
- Hotline Mami
- Beat Cop
- Dustforce DX
If you pay more than the average you get:
- Gato Roboto (not on Linux)
- + more to come around 6PM UTC on May 19
The top tier meanwhile at £12 has:
- Hypnospace Outlaw
The sad part is how the HIB by itself used to stand for cross-platform and DRM-free, which seems to no longer be the case. With one title only on Windows, and not DRM-free either.
Still, a good selection overall of some new and some not so, and each is rated well by players. If I didn't have them already, I would happily be picking up a full bundle for that price. The Humble Indie Bundle 21 ends on Tuesday, May 26.
I really had hoped that another "Humble Indie Bundle" would be something big. Instead it's just another Humble "Insert any name because we really don't care" Bundle which is neither cross-platform nor DRM-free.
Additionally, the game selection is not great. Dustforce and Hotline Miami were already in previous "Humble Indie Bundles" and probably some other bundles, too.
and the first bundles.
It was epic.
Quoting: poiuzSo, Humble Bundle is really gone and will never return. That is a really sad anniversary...I agree 100% with every word. From excitement to disappointment in just a few seconds :(
Too bad you can no longer customize which games get your money. At least I could zero out the Humble Tip in favor of the EFF and GOL. ;-)

Hyonospace is DRM-free though, so that seems to be a mistake.
(And yes, they could have just left it there and skipped an anniversary bundle.)

To make it worse, the game's launcher makes it not even launch via Proton.
