Want to get a copy of Surviving Mars and plenty of extra content? Check out the Humble Surviving Mars Bundle. Plus, there's a Winter Sale on at Humble. A really great city-builder and you can get the base game for next to nothing thanks to this!

Here's what the bundle has:

  • Surviving Mars
  • Green Planet DLC
  • Space Race DLC
  • Plus multiple smaller DLC packs
  • Plus 10% off Below and Beyond

For that price it's absolutely worth it. Even just the base game is brilliant to chill out with, there's not many city-building sims that feel like it.

Additionally, Humble also has their own Winter Sale that just went live with tons of great discounts on some fantastic titles both big and small. Let us know if you find anything especially good.

Since Humble Bundle is trying to alienate Linux users, I don't want to give them more money.

They have successfully lost me as a customer.

Wow. That is the extra fuck you mile.
I think I only got like.. 2 humble bundles at most (usually because like this one I already have it... I'd call it worth it with ease but you know...) But never anything humble anymore.

We did already write about their upcoming changes.

Use them like any other company: if they offer a good deal, go for it? Doesn't change the main part of Humble Choice that people go for - the keys.

No. I think something is missing in your report, Liam.
If I understood it right their changes is not about getting a new launcher for Windows. It is about ditching Linux at all.
And - somehow - a complete Linux-less Humble looks somehow out of place on a site about gaming on Linux…

We want to give you a heads up that starting February 1, Mac and Linux versions of the DRM-free games currently in the Humble Trove will no longer be available.

It is noted in our article.

Quoting: The ArticleNext up, they’ve decided you need another launcher with the Humble app, which will only be supported on Windows. This will be required for the new, additional, Humble Games Collection. This will contain a “growing” list of curated games. On top of that the Humble Trove is being renamed to the Humble Vault, which they say will remain “DRM-free” but it will also require the Humble app.

The normal "main" part of choice is not restricted to the app.

We will continue to highlight anything we think is a reasonable deal.

It's time to rename the site from "GamingOnLinux" to "GamingOnProton".
Sad but true.

Thank you. I was already wondering but must have missed that!

Anyway - refused love is always hard. But now I won't write about that on this topic.

Well, no. We cover everything and Proton is still playing on Linux.

Your article, just like the notice from Humble, mentioned that Mac and Linux downloads will be no longer available for Humble Trove games. But since the new Windows-only client will be required to access your collection, I can only assume this also applies to games in your whole collection including those purchased with bundles.

Sure, you'll still keep your Steam keys, and that may be how the vast majority of players use Humble now. But imagine if one day Steam shuts down access, while Humble is still around, then you'll only be able to download Windows copies of your games, but not Mac/Linux ones. That scenario seems unlikely, but I also couldn't have imagined this happening to Humble years ago. "DRM-free" was supposed to be one of Humble's selling points, and that's now permanently lost to Linux gamers.

There is absolutely nothing that says you need the Humble App for anything other than Trove / Vault and their new collection, not to be confused with the normal main part of Humble Choice..
