Ready for a gaming boost to push through the week? The Humble Headup Games Band Boost Bundle is out now and it has some rather sweet looking games.

Live from now until Tuesday, September 1st, 2020 here's a run-down of what to expect from it. Titles with Linux support are highlighted. Any that do work with the Steam Play Proton compatibility layer are noted too.

In the initial tier:

  • Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic
  • Deadly 30 - Has a Linux build but it's not advertised as it didn't work well
  • Meridian: Squad 22
  • Doodle Derby
  • Safety First - works with Proton
  • Dub Dash

Pay more than the average for:

  • Slime-san
  • SEUM: Speedrunners from Hell
  • Dead End Job
  • The Inner World

The final tier (around £9.21) has:

  • Vambrace: Cold Soul
  • OUTBUDDIES DX - works with Proton but missing intro video
  • Everreach: Project Eden
  • Silver Chains
  • The Textorcist: The Story of Ray Bibbia - works with Proton

Check out the full bundle here.

Was The Inner World ever fixed for Linux? When I last played it, it was missing music and cutscenes, and used the lower res graphics and UI from the mobile version. Not a great experience, and I gave up on it pretty quickly.

Quoting: fleskWas The Inner World ever fixed for Linux? When I last played it, it was missing music and cutscenes, and used the lower res graphics and UI from the mobile version. Not a great experience, and I gave up on it pretty quickly.

No, unfortunately the game never received an update, but both music and cutscenes are included and are working reasonably well. However cutscenes will only play with the "correct" Java version installed - I'm currently using Oracle Java 8 now, but I remember that the cutscenes were just skipped when using Java 7. (Haven't tried OpenJDK.)

Hints for people that want to play it:
  • The inventory can be accessed by pressing the Tab key
  • Don't click on the wrench in the settings dialogue (where you can adjust the sound volume - the wrench in the inventory to open the settings menu is fine) - you will be teleported to a much later section of the game, standing in front of a gate
  • Videos will be played in a separate window


Even with these technical deficiencies this is easily one of the best games I've ever played - I absolutely adore the game's humor.
