Humble Bundle PC & Android 9 Ups The Ante With Three More Linux Games

Posted by , | Views: 10,140
Humble Bundle PC & Android 9 was already a good thing for Linux gamers, and now even more so with three more native games for Linux included as extras. So, we now have 9 games in this bundle making it quite the whopper.

Thew new games added to the bundle are:

The Shivah

Syder Arcade

All pretty decent games worth checking out, what are your favourite games in this bundle? It's really good to see Humble bring out more cross-platform bundles and I can't wait for the next major bundle to come. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Syder Arcade caught my attention first, I liked this kind of games back in the day. It's good but a bit buggy. In case your system uses a non-english locale you might get visual and gameplay errors. Try running it with the command:
LC_ALL=C ./SyderArcade_Humble.x86

It's the first Unity game I have problems with. I guess it's using locale-aware number parsing functions for reading its data files, nasty. It might be some Unity plugin that is doing it.

Overall, a good and varied bundle. Bridge Constructor and Savant-Ascent are good too and running very well. Haven't tried the others yet.

I was amazed by the fact they added Shivah. It is one of the few games from Wadjet Eye I didn't have at the moment. I like this guys, already preordered Blackwell Epiphany. So, bundle worth it at least for Shivah.

Broken Sword and Savant looks great for me too.

I found Bridge Constructor very enjoyable.
Nine games, Linux, Android, Steam! Great bundle overall!
I only wonder why they have ceased to offer Desura support.

Yeah, but besides the bundles they don't support Linux.

It is sad, but their games uses ags engine, port of which works fine for me (https://github.com/adventuregamestudio/ags). I hope they will announce Linux support someday.

The same workaround is needed for the first release version of Larry Reloaded (fixed in 2.0) and Chuck's Challenge. Try the demo of the latter to see funny graphical bugs.

I am optimistic about this, their have improved their Linux support from none to bundles only. They only need to take another step.
