Humble just released a new bundle full of highly rated games, with 2 great picks in there for Linux gamers.

The Humble Very Positive Bundle 3 is now live, with 7 total games. Sadly, only 2 of those have Linux releases but even so it's a chance for you to get them a lot cheaper than normal and together.

For the PWYW tier you get: DISTRAINT 2, Unexplored and Rusty Lake Paradise. None of which have Linux support, however they should all work with Steam Play. The top tier has Shantae: Half-Genie Hero, another Windows game.

It gets a lot more interesting if you beat the average payment (the middle tier) to get both Bendy and the Ink Machine and Prison Architect. Two highly rated games, both support Linux. Oh, there's also Nex Machina but no Linux support and doesn't sound good in Steam Play either.

So in terms of overall Linux support, not a great bundle. Games though? Bendy and the Ink Machine and Prison Architect together if you beat the average is a deal not to pass up on.

Find the Humble Very Positive Bundle 3 here.

If anyone grabs it and doesn't want Nex Machina, I would like to try it. I have an assortment of keys and willing to trade. Message me.

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero works fine with SteamPlay. Don't forget you can choose which developers get your money at the bottom of the page.

Steam said I already own Bendy and the Ink Machine (probably some prior bundle). However, it says the executable is missing; in fact, installing it just yielded an empty directory here. Is it working for anyone else?

Edit: verifying integrity in Steam says everything is good, so it must be an empty depot or something.

Edit 2: maybe I just had the demo, and they screwed up when they merged everything together:

I think complimentary means to play it for a while or for a review/testing but some developers give you a lifetime complimentary licenses for their games.

Anyway you can remove the complimentary and add the humble license.

Too bad Prison Architect just dropped the DRM free version now that Introversion is no longer involved. It is a great game by an awesome studio, and the new ownership has improved it, but it still feels a hit like a betrayal to the original supporters who played it all throughout the early days.

I got the free first episode, and they managed to organize it so I cannot buy the full product now... :-(

So maybe Humble Bundle would be a way to get it?
Anyboy got a Bendy too much, maybe?

When this happens, you can just ask Steam to permanently remove it from your library, then you're able to get the full game. I had to do that once or twice when Steam stuff was messed up. Obviously I only recommend doing that if you are going to get the full stuff, so you don't lose anything then.

Well, the DRM-free version in question was directly supplied by Introversion. They no longer have the rights, so it was obvious that would happen. It's still fully DRM-free from Humble and GOG.

Interested in a Bendy key, in case one is going spare. I could swap for something else (PM me).
